Looks great!
How about posting us a picture when you get it bolted back on... and before you put the breather back on it.
Thanks in advance.

yeah, I was thinking putting it in my display case with my die cast cars. but that was just for a minute, lol. it will be a month or so but I want to clean the underside of the hood and my grill needs to be painted silver. once I have the hood off I`ll do a light clean up on the top side of motor, maybe replace intake gaskets and valve cover gaskets too. then put it back on and take a few pics of it installed. yes Rich, I had Jerry restore my original carb. fresh rebuild and every single piece got re plated. Jerry has a test mule motor he bolts all his rebuilds on to set everything. It should be plug and play, just need the hard line to hook up my vacuum advance up, any ideas on who I should get the vacuum line kit from ? and does anybody have some trinket parts I need ? ie proper inner fender bolts and clips for the driver side, intake bolts ??   :)
