The holy grail of carbs for IHCs, and the one you want for a turbo set-up!

Traded it for my spare heater, still in shock buddy said it's a fair trade when both parties get something they need... Love these old school guys!!!

Now time for a quick bath!!!

A new version of the turbo

View attachment 533189
Check with Nick at Black Sheep Industries in Edmonton and see if he has a turbo blanket that'll work on that small a turbo.Turbo's need heat and the more heat you can keep in the exhaust side housing the better it'll work

Test fitted the head, mocked up the rocker shafts and everything seems good.

Will throw everything back into the ultrasonic cleaner one last time before final assembly.

Im having a hard time understanding why a 1950s motor has better oiling system than the HEMI... *****.

International is .007 No I have to order the Blu one... FML !!!

Bead blasted and cleaned up the manifolds !

Didn't feel like paying for a receiver hitch. Amazon warehouse deals didn't have any either, and a new one is like 200$ .. lol

So the scrap pile came to the rescue.

Well today sucked. Cant do the Bed mounted gas tanks like I wanted. To much Fab work and time I just dont have.

So I ordered a new 15 gal Fuel cell from Jeggs.
