    Default {CARB-SWAP}All chromed up & nowhere to go


    Got the chrome Valve Covers on. It was a bitch to get all the old cork gasket material off of the heads, but I got it done. The V/C's are by Spectre Performance, and cost $39.99 at Partsamerica.com.


    I still have to wrap all the wiring up, to get it all neat and nice. The 2150 2BBl fit nice on the intake, with no problems whatsoever.


    I got done removing the old bracket that holds the EEC coil on. It looks less cluttered now between the alt. and the Valve Cover. I also located the new coil over to the driver side.


    Old school distributor-I used a 1974 Ford F-100 Points distributor. It works really well.

    All the chrome shit I got is by Spectre Performance. I am happy with the quality of the chrome plating, it looks really nice.

    Anyway, the swap is completely done, and I am happy with it.

    Paul, you can do your carb swap the same way Im doing mine.

    It will cost less than 400 bucks, and isnt very much labor.

    Also, you wont have to drop teh tank with my method!

    Default LTD....

    I'm going to have to drop the tank on mine, and remove the electric pump, and go with a mechanical fuel pump.. My car has two fuel pumps, one in the tank, one under the car, (where the second muffler goes..)

    Just a thought....
    I wonder if just the electic pump in the tank could be used.. with a fuel regulator on it... (I wonder what kind of pressure it puts out, by itself?)
    Maybe I can just remove the under car one, and use the one in the tank, so I won't have to swap out the pick up in the tank....

    Tom...
