    If the head gasket is wrong it'd be blowing coolant out the radiator in less than 10 mins

    Yes you can . If you look at a gasket , the front and rear corners are different. The front corner is more square , you square see that square bit exposed . The rear corner tapers off

    I've been going to do this starter mod . How's it look in the car? I just repaired my original Bosch starter to keep it looking original but these are a good way to go .

    That's awesome . I have seen 30RWHP on a chassis dyno gain with the box cut . I like the extra elbow there , must look at doing that to mine

    I saved the pic so I could zoom in. That looks like wrong gear . Looks like a gear for right side entry as in a manual trans or BW35. A C4 gear has teeth the opposite direction, usually teeth all straight where that one is stepped

    Interesting... Somehow it got an early (up to 1969) extension housing

    Big Block will go in early cars ok . Castle auto pipes go right in they are tight out of the heads but make way more torque than any small block ever will.

    Hmmm that upper clip next to the casting code should be on the top side of the valvebody

    I've used a few of those type , one in my car been there 13 years is fine. Only thing I had to do was used dome head allen bolts as bolts supplied had minimal clearance to the steering box case

    They do a bit but unless the car is crazy low they are ok.. Next choice a little shallower is the RTS pans from VPW Funny that is a Procomp pan but the name milled off. I did that with one I have . For a procomp/Speedmaster part they are ok
