Finally running again...
« on: June 13, 2013, 10:15:48 PM »
Finally got the wagon running right by ditching the old Holley 4160 in favor of new Edelbrock 1406.  Mod's are 302 with MII 4-speed and 8"rear, 17" wheels, 5 lug rotors on front, redrilled axle flange to 5 lug, GM disc brakes rear, alum radiator, Edelbrock Performer intake, Snow White shortie water pump kit (uses Opel pump,) electric fans, aftermarket a/c compressor and condenser.  The car is a '76, but has the front clip from a '79 Bobcat.  The backseats are gone to move the battery to the passenger side footwell.  Next step is to replace the exhaust system.  It is rusty and loud, since I installed it when the V8 first went in about 1990. Front seats are black leather from an Escort ESP, but now worn out. Any good ideas?
