Okay here is what was under my hood...It's a bit of a DOG off the line, but it will really BARK when you put your foot down on it, It does leak a little fluid here and there, and backfires once in a while, but (I may get in trouble for this one) it's a real good pussy getter.

Not finished yet (relocate and connect electric cables, original fuel line to carb, shock tower braces) but this was my last sight a few days before :heart:

YEEEAAAAH - cool:exclamation:

 

Lookin great, isn' it :) ?!

 

I love that massive old-school look without too much bling bling. And you have also the coil on the "wrong" side ;) On the passenger side there are too many cooling hoses heating it perhaps up...

 

What's your intake? It looks like mine - Offenhauser. And your carb?

 

That looks good with that massive air filter but my space between hood and cleaner is not so much - I have a 4V spacer between intake manifold and carb, which is an 1970 Autolite 4300.

Edelbrock Performer LB 351-4V, 750 holley, and 1/2" phelonic spacer. It's a 3" element for the air filter. I'm changing up the combo with an RPM air gap intake so I will likely use a drop base air cleaner with the "hipo" lid.

Ok, let's figure out how it looks after your installation :)

 

By the way: I like your rims! They have the original 1973 look but what are they? They are nice wide filling the rear wheel housing - I like that!

here are some of mine before, during, and after. it is an f code 302, 2bbl.

 

You know, Comp cams makes roller tip rockers that are inexpensive and really do add a noticeable power gain that would replace those stockers nicely... Just replace the push rods at the same time.

Wow, thank you! THIS is the way I will go in future after all other is done - I love the original look with some extra thickness - and they are really affordable...

Keiths,

 

Which valve covers are those?

What mod did you have to do to the tunnel to install the TKO?

hi tony, i had it in without any modification with an american power train "x" cross member but didn't like the drive line angle nor the geometry of my mechanical clutch linkage so i cut a large section of the top of the tunnel,made a steel cross brace and a new sheet metal top, i was too far along under the dash so i put it in with panel bond and rivets. i cut the cross member 1 1/2 " bolted the 4 tabs back together and had a friend tig it back together.and left the bolts in. i don't have a before picture or the x cross member. had i not already spent $$$ on modifications to the trans. i could have used the new low profile tko instead. but now the clutch linkage all lines up perfect and my 3" exhaust fits up tight. and i have room to adjust the driveshaft angle. and no i wouldn't have done this too a pristine original haha
