(to compare with). There will be a casting number on the block, and on the heads, on the intake.
If they are similar you can probably use that as a starting place. The number should
begin with an E for the eightys, D for the 70's, C for the sixties. the second digit is

tune up. New plugs, wires, and cap. Pertronics "points". change the fuel filter and air cleaner
clean the cooties off your carburator. Time it by seat pressure and sound.

Turns out they put a major dent in my fender and I'm pissed and very sad. I just had it fully painted before shipping it!

Anybody running a shroud or panel under the radiator like modern cars? I recently took out a perfectly good radiator at an autocross due to a rock getting between the radiator and engine and bouncing into the radiator and taking out 4 rows when it bounced off the fan. Maybe it was a 1 in a...
