Got these cut at the waterjet shop next door today. The header should be in sometime next week, then I can chop and weld to my heart's content.

One for me, one for Brock, one for Andrew.

Man a shorty bottom mount header a la B204GT would be sweet for me. Oh well.

Great project, nice to see someone taking the path less traveled and not doing the typical megasquirt of b230ft swap!

Instead of MS, buy one of these: http://www.123ignition.nl/id/50.html

Alternatively, I have a boat points distributor. You would have to set up a vacuum advance for that however.

That's all well and good, but that's money. I have the MS1 stuff laying around the house.

Got my ford header in today. It's so close it's not even funny. The top four studs even line up with the ford flange.

Crappy picture is crappy




Volvo flange on Ford gasket


I'll lop the ford flange off and then goop it back on to the Volvo flange. A cursory glance at the position of the manifold says it'll clear the body of the car. It'll be close though.

going to need a pretty fat cam, eh? Or is the stepped primary going to keep the reverb in check?

Very cool that it fits-ish. It sure looks good.

I have no idea, nor do I really care. I'm not shooting for huge NA power.

Ordered up a RHD throttle cable today. If I have time after pulling parts off the 760 and boxing them up, I have a pretty simple idea for the throttle cable bracket that should work fine.

Awwww, someone rated my thread, yay!

Should be able to make some progress on the car this week. Finally sourced the correct crank gear, so I can get the front of the motor together. I have a sort of cobbled TPS setup, but I'm still on the fence about just buying something that'll bolt on and work.

Snagged an old school adjustable cam gear from Impolvo while I was in Chapel Thrill.

After considering it for about 3 minutes, I just bought the TPS kit. It'll look cleaner and be less cobbled than what I was planning on doing.

The only thing I lack for the '79 is a set of wheels, a clutch for the T5, and a Microsquirt. I'll get it going again soon enough.
