The car came with a reconditioned 4 core big block radiator, the car had a 355 small block in it when I bought the car. The radiator kept the mouse motor at 180 degrees on the hottest days in traffic, I thought I would try it to start off with and then go with a aluminum radiator down the road if this doesnt cool it. That way I could also loose a little weight even if it is 5 or 6 pounds difference. I forgot to add that it is a manual transmission radiator so I will have to make my own transmission lines and mount a cooler to the front of the radiator.

I am still in the process of getting this thing ready to fire up. I need to figure what fittings I need to plumb the line from the tank to the pump and then braided line from the pump to the regulator up by the carb. I have been looking at the aluminum heads that Jegs builds, anyone ever try them? I will get some pics maybe tonight and post on here. I am trying to get this this running so I can get it to the upholstery shop!! If its not one thing its another!!

I need to come off the hard line and go to the pump, then find the right AN fitting to go from the pump into a braided line to the carb set up pictured above.

Forgive all the sanding dust, I have a lot of cleaning to do and some bolts that I will have to touch up. I hope it will look good when I get it done.

Excercise caution in buying 'ready to run' heads from high volume sellers. A friend of mine owns a race engine facility, he told me more often than not the high volume people put poor quality parts in the heads or they aren't matched properly for the engine or intended use.

Well I broke down and ordered a new sump for my factory tank and all the braided line and fittings to run a 1/2'' line from the tank to the pump and then on to the carb, will get some pics on this project later this week!!!

I think the Jeg's brand heads are made by Pro-Filer.....if so those are some good castings from what I've read from people who know how to make power.

Also, with the fuel lines....try to keep them as straight as possible. Straight lines build less heat in the fuel than do lines that are crooked and bent.

Thanks Michael, so what about the lines on the carb, do they need straightened some? I never really noticed those before until you said that. I will put that on my to do list. LOL Thats my problem, my TO DO list is bigger than my GOT DONE list!!

I would go through the fuel lines from the tank to the carb and make them as straight and as short (within reason) as possible. The lines at the carb are way too long-the longer the lines the longer the fuel will be exposed to heat under the hood-usually cooler fuel will produce more power and better economy if it is on the cooler side (my experience).

The only place the lines should be long is if you are using a cool can, and the lines shouldn't be braided in there if you are using one.

And I fully understand about the 'to do list' being longer than the 'got done list'. I'm in the same boat as you,lol.

Maybe that one is different?
