Carb looks like stock so how did you get the triangle air cleaner to fit. Engine looks really great. Keep up the good work.

Thanks! I still have more I'd like to do. Im considering a turbo motor for it. I'm thinking it would give a 2100lb car some zip! Here's a pic of the adapter plate I made. (it pays to have a good friend with a machine shop and waterjet!)

It does help to have friends with any kind of fabrication shop. Adapter looks like very good workmanship.
