Nice job Larry. Did you know you can eliminate the hose crossing back across the intake by flipping the fuel rail 180 degrees? No mods to make it work. Russell makes all the fittings to hook up fuel rail to AN-6 hose fittings.

It's too bad you couldn't move the engine back a little but I assume you put it there so the shifter would be in the right place. I'm to old at 76 to be shifting so I used the 4L65 that came with the LS2 I put in my 39 Chev 2d.

I was aware of that -- thank you-- Yea I'll be 71 in a few days, I hope my hands will hold out long enough to finish this, a few more pix of the shifter tunnel, more welding to do . Cold air intake is FINALY done, pain in the butt but came out real nice, fabing the council has been ben real trying but it will look nice when it's done. rear disc will fit ub nice Emergence brake is next.

A few more pix, finally finished fabing the tunnel support for the council. This is in 5 pieces and is removable, was a lot of work to do--- kicked my butt for a wile but supports the council well enough so when someone leans on it it won't crack it. The next project is to relocate the clutch & break pedals.

Thanks for your input, seems like a lot of people look at these posts ( not just mine ) and never comment.

Of course they do. Imagine if everyone who looked commented, this thread would be 200 pages long.

Looks like you're doing some nice work. The H-pipe in your exhaust is pretty trick looking. Subscribing to this one, can't wait to see it all done.

A few more pix of the progress-- filled in the recess from the old plate, lots of lead that needed cleaned off to be able to weld in patch plate, Old friend of mine did this in 1988, kinda didn't want to do away with the memory. Charcol can brackets we re fabed from lighter material -- ready to weld in. Proportioning valve bracket ready to weld on. Iv'e kinda run into trouble finding a place to paint all this--but im sure i'll figure it out

A couple of pix of the little adapter block for the e- brake, and some engine pix. This has been quite a project, one little job after another, but most of the heavy fab stuff is done, I hope.
