The heads have been reworked. Sand cast texture was added with paint. The spark plug holes were moved since they were located incorrectly and the head bolt locations were drilled out to accept the bolts that were not included in the molded in detail. I machined spark plugs from aluminum, the boots are vinyl tubing. The head bolts were made from hex stock styrene. A little wash was applied to give them a used look.
The firewall had two big slots in it for the hood hinges. (One right through the heater box.) I filled them in and reconstructed the heater box and I “hammered” the area that will be behind the distributor for added clearance. (Sure helped on my real one…)
I machined the mounting hardware for the headers from 2024 aluminum. I also cut out the notches in the flanges to allow access/clearance to the repositioned spark plugs…
The headers are done, all the hardware is installed.
. I machined all the nuts/bolts/washers from 2024 aluminum.
The starter/solenoid is a little high torque unit I scratchbuilt before I shelved the project. Machined a few nuts and bolts for it yesterday… (The stock OEM GM unit would not fit inside the headers.)
I just made the bolts and washers for it (and the studs/nuts/washers for the thermostat housing).
More 2024...
The water pump is done for now. Kit sourced from the ’67 Corvette, with added machined fitting and mounting bolts.
The dipstick tube was made from solder I knurled with a file to look like braided line. The fittings and dipstick handle are machined aluminum (6061).
