Bob, that's a solid steering arm unit, I like the lighting holes to kill a bit of weight. It will all come together when you get everything repainted. A few holes in that axle will kill 10-15#, right out front were you need to loss it, just an idea.

Yes, they are. I'm sad but also relieved that Sam is no longer dying slowly. Broke my heart to see him in that condition. He was my hero.

Next stop is carburation. The 3 2 bbls seemed to work good but were not very adjustable. I've decided to go with 2 4 bbls. instead. Will run a pair of Holleys. Probably 750's. With vacuum secondaries. Made a new top plate and started on some walnut carb spacers. By mounting them sideways the mixture flow to the ports should be good.

Nice looking top plate and spacers. You may really need that cam
change now.

Looks like we are trying for 10.25 range

Linkage is built. There is a throttle cable running from the cross shaft to the gas pedal. Have yet to tie that end in. Then on to fuel lines. With vacuum secondaries the engine should only draw as much fuel/air as it needs.
