Oh, and just so's you all know, I don't paint engines anything but black. If it ain't black it's gonna blow it's guts out real soon. Picture windows in the sides, nothin' left but a handful of lifters,,,,,,,,,,,

Not at all dyno.. I got my heads on saturday and tried to set them up.. valves were to long, so gotta send them back for shorter ones. I had to port my emi exhaust manifolds today so they would fit my heads, the exhaust port on the head was about a 1/4" bigger then the manifold port. Found out there is not enough room between the springs to put a nut on the head stud in 3 locations on the heads, so I need 12 point nuts or put the heads on without the springs, then put the springs on after the head is on. Then the oil drains in the heads are drilled real high, so there is probably 1 to 1 1/2 quarts of oil in each head all the time, so that means that the valve covers gasket will probably leak some what, don't know if I can grind them bigger and lower so I don't have alot of oil in the heads, will find out tommorrow when I talk with AFR. Still after all that I have to get it together, paint it, put it in the boat and then make my wiring harness. I still need to order a set of emi stainless risers and also find a new 800 holley. I was gonna run all AN fittings, but I ran outta money so back to the old rubber hose and hose clamps for oil lines. I would have been ready but I ordered my heads on feburary 24th and did not get them till april 26th. I am not in a rush anymore more, I have pretty much lost interest. So i will get it going sometime.



Hope to run with you guys sometime this summer.


Travis
