Well the hood has been off while I up-date every thing. So you guess it
With the Victor and 1" Wilson tapered spacer the carb now sits much higher. just about and 1" above the hood. I was flipping out because I could see having to buy a new hood or do some serious hood and scoop
modifying. Visisions of body shops and weeks waiting to get it done, then
not having the paint matching the rest of the car.
Get It On...thanks for all your help...saved me a ton of time and money.
Excellent explanation on how it all works...not that I didn't know already.
Get It On here's some pictures their not real good but I think
good enough to see what I did..just the way you explained it to me.
The little hole you see is right over the float adjuster nut..but it bens down right after the bowl and now is attached to the hood. In the back
it bens up on a little angle and is attached to the back of the hood.
So now the air pan comes off with the hood...but lines up perfectly
once the hood is place down onto the suz (sp) fasteners. I have to
cut the bottom of the hood scoop because the carb linkage was
hanging up on the ridge. We spent about 6 hours today getting it
done, with out damaging the hood or paint.
Our plains was to then pull the car out to wash it..and then take it for
a blast...LOL well got it all washed but that's as far as
we got...untill the shifter cable finally let go completely...what a bitch..trying to get the car back into the grage. Hope the new shifter cable gets here tomorrow.
