    Man its been a long journey, I had everything rebuilt about 4 years ago, thanks to some good friends we planned and attacked it yesterday. I had posted a request for top motor pics yesterday and people came through, BIG THANKS...

    Im looking for confirmation I (we) got everything right, My boys completed the plumbing when I was out running for parts. I think a couple pipes could be out of place. The piping coming out of the manifold on the right side im not to sure about.

    Any help is appreciated, Thanks, Vin

    It looks to me like you've got the distributor and the trans vacuum lines reversed at the carb. The upper one should go to the distributor and the lower one should go to the transmission.

    Is there a way to cut out the butterfly valve in the exhaust manifold? I figure the spring is broken so I guess I should remove it before I connect the exhaust

    The "spring" is actually a coil that opens the valve as the manifold heats up. When the engine is cold, it partially closes the flapper to direct hot exhaust to the base of the intake manifold, which helps speed the warmup process. The engine runs colder, longer without it.

    You can buy new manifolds on e-bay for reasonable money. Or maybe someone here would have one of those bi-metal springs as a replacement.
