The last things to consider are the fuel system, alternator, and exhaust manifolds. Sometimes I just love trolling :biggrin: quote: The 350 has been around since the civil war. The finished fuel system: pump, pre-filter and pump. This saves us hours, if not days,and more importantly-headaches. Make sure to check for leaks!

A stock-type metal canister pre-filter works great, but they are not pretty. There are adjustable and stock location adapter plates available also known as 1-inch setback plates.

There are three ways to accomplish this task: install pre-bent hard lines, bend new hard lines, or run braided hose. Our Girdle is cnc machined aluminum and goes over the original mating flange, wraps around the tube, and fastens using both bolt holes. The Corvette filter regulator mounts under the car and near the tank, so the return line is very short. We could have called up a radiator company and had them custom make one specific for this car. A shows a typical off-brand filter. Our engine mounts position the engine so there is no steering interference, and our crossmember maintains the proper drive-line angle.
The Craigslist set up was still worth it for the cost of the fans alone. To make the frame horns we sacrificed a pair of frame mounts from a Chevelle.
