Thanks for the kind words guys.
Here is a bit of an update on the progress (spending).
Expensive driveshaft yoke for the roller bearing in the Dedenbear tailhousing.
Rebuilt brakes, hubs, and new spindles.
I ordered new a-arm cross shafts, but after inspection decided the ones on the car were heavier and in good shape, so they will stay.
I believe the stop-bolt is so the car picked up the front wheels early. Will probably have to remove it.
Bought an Dart hi-rise, but when it came, the directions said it needed machining for factory bb heads. Went with an Edelbrock and did some gasket matching
Chevy High Performance magazine (Dec) had an article on a ZZ502 car with a vortec supercharger without an intercooler. The magazine claimed that on 8 lbs of boost it would make 800HP, so maybe the ZZ502 for this car with a intercooled procharger at 10 or 12 lbs will make a bit more.
