Fairly standard, They managed to find a "virginal" block so only had to go out to 20 thou over. Some Omega pistons and ARP studs (whatever they are?!)


Interesting way of getting around the dodgy vent / run-on valve solenoid problem as previously mentioned....

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=434

take the pipe which goes from the carb to the offending dodgy valve and rather than stuff a bolt up the end as mentioned, use a t-piece and join it into the pipe which runs from the fuel regulator and plenum chamber, seems to work...

Just a few hundred miles to run everything in then (hopefully) away we go!!!!

I knew we would get you into the clean engine bay club eventually! Not sure about the anti-run on valve since the purpose is only to vent the manifold on switch off to prevent running on - that is why the bolt does such a good job because it is blocked permanently! I notice there are two holes where your engine number should be! If you have it remade I can send you the hammer drive rivets to hold it on. The bracket which sits under one of the rocker cover bolts and holds the heater hose back is missing - only mention it because I doubt you will find another off the shelf - but not to difficult to make from flat.

It looks really, really, really (is that enough reallys?) good! Enjoy - I dread to imagine what it cost!
