and your favorite....a Mallory Mag, just like a hillbilly from north of here
Blower overdrive and Timing starting point?
Oil cooler or not ?, Not sure it will clear my t pan but I will make it work if you think I need it
Valve Covers have oilers, should I plumb them?
Carbs are boost referenced, The Pro Systems Carbs on my Hydro arent and according to Pro Systems at under normal boost you dont need to, Can you explain?
I have a shorty Glide In a past post on transmissions you recommended not bracing the back of the trans, Can you explain?
As always, thank you very much for your help. It is appreiciated, Tom
