Carb/hood clearance
« on: April 15, 2013, 07:13:07 PM »
I am installing a Motorcraft/Ford 2 barrel carburator on an Offenhauser intake manifold in my 1980 Pinto with a 2300 engine, will I have a problem with hood clearance, and if so what can I do to allow the hood close normally?  If I need to modify the hood, where/who might I go to for another hood?  Without going into the engine, other than the top part, what can I do further to give me more go power?  I have the Offenhauser intake manifold and carb, an exhaust header and a roller cam with a competition grind?  Please respond to me via my e-mail address, which is: lesterwa58@yahoo.com
