Default Get It On.....Hood Scoop Pictures

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.
Wink 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.

Thank You, Gach. Gald to help. Besides, always great conversation until we kill a phone! But sucks about the linkage hanging on the scoop. Maybe a shorter/split linkage to a bellcrank arrangement to keep the hood from getting cut?

It's a nice feeling having a pile of parts together in one piece that will move on it's own power.

A car taken apart will take up the room of 2 cars.

Not to mention all the room under your bed.

It's and old cable..came over on the Mayflower. Just glad it happen in
the drive way and not at the tract. Have a new cable came Sat wrong
one. Summit says 3 weeks to get the right one...package up the new one
and send...yeah right that will take a week before they get it, and then
another three weeks to get the right one. I'm not WAITING! talking to
a few people to see if I can borrow one...I'm not buying a new shifter
for $239.00. Don't have the money.

Using one out of a 70 BB Chevelle..bought it brand new. It's not the old
Pontiac style. The bracket for the front return springs was hitting the
bottom ( flat spot ) of the hood Scoop...just needed to cut that corner out...it was an easy fix and didn't effect the sealing of the hood scoop
pan.

Yes, it's mine.
Just a street car that makes it to the track once a year.
