pics loaded fine for me, and i am on a slow connection. I like all the pics in general. What kind of heat shield is that for the starter solenoid?

Thanks!
The heat shield is the one that's in the AIM and was originally mounted on all engines I guess?
Its just a thin metal plate so I'm not sure how efficient it is but I like how the engine designer thought when they made it back in the 60:ies...they knew the solenoid has a place there near the manifold so...

A friend of mine, who´s a self taught welder, got a mission to contribute to the history of our ZL-1.


A place for the lambda sond to be in....can be useful in the future! ;)

is that a bung for a fuel air mixture gauge?
 Also are you going to put a 4 speed manual or more modern 6 speed manual in it with a stick looking hurst shifter by chance?

Yes! I thought its was called lambda probe in english..?
No! Going to run it with the old TH350 I had before....low stall speed and shift kit.

Hakan,

One good looking ZL-1 for sure. Out of curiousity, why the TH350 instead of a TH400 ? I have a bad mental picture of twisted output shafts and exploding internals after that kind of power metering through it. True, a 350 will hold up to mannerful driving, but wasn't really intended for this kind of duty. Just asking -

Regards,
Steve

Thanks, Steve, appreciate it!  8)
I want to keep the TH350 thats already in the car for several reasons...!
One is money, cause building a ZL-1 isn't cheap anywhere...second I'm not gonna race this car and use sticky rubber so hopefully the 350 should manage with me driving it?!

But you have a point and we have thought about it but for now this is how gonna start!  :-\

Without big tires I think the 350 will do OK. Might want to think about that low rpm converter unless your motor likes to idle at 6 or 700 rpm.

I think you're spot on there, Kelley!
There are a lot of things that we probably have to deal when it comes to getin the ZL-1 back in the car again... ;)

I would recommend saving the turbo 350 and your old motor for another vehicle.
To bad you aren't closer I have a 454 and turbo 400 that got built with a street/strip idea, (10 seconds in the 1/4 on all motor) and then never got installed. I am trying to find a buyer for both...and the search continues.... ::) :P
