    Default gn7, were gettin close!

    Got the manifold on today, couple of problems, your linkage plate hits my valve covers, i'm going to have to fabricate somthin up. Had to change out a couple fittings since you use -10 and i use -8. Gettin close!

    Also did alittle cleaning/polishin on your manifold

    Default little closer

    got some time today to do alittle more work, fabed up a throttle cable mount. The one you gave me wouldnt fit with my valve covers. This one is a temp deal, it needed to be made out of thicker aluminum but it will work for now. I even did a quick polish job on it.. Came out ok i think













    Now i just need to make a new braided fuel line that will run from the pump to the reg. My setup feed from the rear but bob's (gn7's) takes a feed from the front. Luckily i still have some hose and fittings left from superdave! Should be able to fire it up this week.

    Quick Q, how important is it to torque the intake manifold, it's real difficult to get a torque wrench into areas on this manifold. I basically just used a wrench and did three passes on the bolts trying to tighten them down as equal as possible. Figured the torque thing on the manifold was probably just to help evenly distribute clamping force to keep the gasket from moving/squeezing out, just wanted to confirm?

    yea just tighten them evenly like you did , four or five times around starting out real easy till they start to snug up so you don't move the intake . then check a bolt that you can get the torque wrench on so you can get it right making the rest the same by feel . your bracket looks fine , nice when you can make those little bits to finish your custom set-ups youself . that set-up should fatten up the torque curve on your motor nicely

    had me stumped for a while why the linkage deal wouldn't work, my valve covers are almost the same. Then I remembered that I have never run that manifold on a low deck and it has always had spacer plates which raise the manifold when used on a tall deck.
    To get a feel for the tightness, you can torque one that you can get to, then tighten it a touch with a box wrench so you can feel for the tightness. Looks good so far, let me know if you need any thing.
    You jet boys feed the water from the rear of the manifold? You guys are strange!

    We feed water to the water pump ports on the front of the block, then dump from the t-stat. The feed from the rear on my previous setup was fuel.

    oh. can't you move the regulater and bracket to the back of the manifold and flip all the carb lines to do what you want, or is it easier to just do a new pump the reg. line? Looks good though, hope it shows you something HP wise.

    Bob (gn7) new problem... Your manifolds dist hole is huge! My dist (msd pro-billet) doesnt fit tight into it and slops around. It worried me because i can tilt it back and forth and i've affraid of chewing up the gear. Is this manifold setup for some type of larger dist?

    OMG! Don't you just hate it when you go to all that trouble, and just when you're ready to slide the shaft in, you find a sloppy hole?
