it's taken several weeks, but we have been busy little bees with removing and selling all my computer/EFI parts and then purchasing and installing all my blow-thru carb parts, not to mention a wee bit of fabrication... and she is almost done! the last piece to the puzzle will be arriving on thursday - the carburetor!
we borrowed a carb similar to the one we ordered to use to mock everything up - all the fuel lines, the cold side piping, etc. absolutely everything is in place. all we need to do is unwrap the new carb, bolt it on, and start her up!
