  1. I am sure it could be, but as you say, a custom manifold would be required. I would probably have one fab'ed up rather than using the banana manifold. A nice row of carbs sticking through the bonnet would look cool if nothing else.
  2. Downdaughts would be cool, no tower clearance issues then.
  3. Yeah, fair enough.
  4. Or keep a clutch fan because there was never anything wrong with them...
  5. That will be how it was balanced. You can just change the pistons. I read that it was balanced as an assembly and over thought it. The rods are balanced so the pistons just need to be.
  6. Your bob weights will change so the crank will need to be re-balanced, unless the pistons weigh the same as the old ones (not likely). Edit: I need to refresh more often or write faster.
  7. Decide for yourself mate, it is easy for us to spend your money. If the cam is too big for what you want, change it. If it is what build up the compression how you want. Would be a pity to machine a block which you have already spent the money on.
  8. C2 head swap is probably easier if your other head has not got a lot done.
  9. Look up these on Summit (link won't paste on my phone). Correct pin size and 1.556 comp height: Keith Black Silv-O-Lite Cast Pistons S1192-020.
  10. Just a quick look so I may have done something dumb and for some you would need the pin holes in the rods opened a tad:
  11. Defective tacho???
  12. 4,000rpm...
  13. Could try pulling your all in rpm point back by 500rpm at a time (down to as low as 3000rpm) and see what happens, otherwise it must be close.
  14. Points aren't so bad (don't die without warning at least) especially it hooked up to an MSD box.
  15. I would leave the side plates on or make alloy sheet ones to stop gunk ending up in your rear quarters and stuffing them.
