This was last night (3/16/7). I just finished polishing the valve covers. Now to 'accent-paint' them. The valves are adjusted and the oil is primed. I used my old original distributor with no cam gear for priming.
Notice too how the 'carb' sits twisted on the manifold. And because this style manifold also is tuned for big block Chevys, the runners are variable in size. That means port matching isn't done in the tradional sense. But I did hog-out all the little bumps and casting slag. Smooooth.
