Power Steering Weld had to be cleaned up, sorry first pic sucked for resolution



Not as clean as I hoped for, but much better than the slag filled heap that it started with.

Water pump was switched out to accommodate the power steering pump and AC condenser.

Headers took a hot minute to accommodate fitment around steering box. But they look a fuzz better than the old rusty ones with 4 bolts on them to attach the pipes.

And then we decided that that Paxton Air Box had to go thanks to Josh on the Facebook VMF group.

Powermaster Alt in black



Power Steering Pump will sit below the AC Condenser which hasn't been mounted yet.

So here is the engine as she sits today.






Novi 1500



Shout out to Ledfoot Racing, I bought a Champion radiator last MAY and they are letting me exchange it now 10 months later after we determined the driver side outlet wasn't going to work with the new configuration with all the stuff on it. Essentially I added AC post purchase and messed up all the plans. Small restock fee and shipping at my expense, but glad to have a solution to move forward.

What headers are those?

Do you have any pics of your tailpipe hangers under the back seat and rear frame rails?

Thanks
Paul
