Received the last part of the puzzle yesterday so today I'll be spending some time in the garage, with the heaters ON. Should not take too long...I hope.

The second with the Holley carb is the old set-up, just imagine it with the carb being goldish-brown with age and the intake not silverish any more.
The first picture is the new set-up, new eddy endurashine carb, new paint on intake, new valve covers,I had the wider air filter before but just not on the Holley picture.

Thanks a hole lot Dan

I don't think there will be any more tear down or upgrades; as you know I only have the camshaft that came with the engine rebuild kit which was said to be high performance and I don't think it is much over stock but who knows. If I finally get around to having my 3.55 gears put in my 8.25 rear, it will feel like if it has more power. I guess most of us always dream of having more power, that is probably the reason for your blower.

You said it looks good and thank you but looks rarely add any power.

Probably my fault. I was cleaning up my photobucket library, and I may have moved them out of there, which in turn would move them from here. Send them to me again and I'll repost them.

The new stuff looks real good. Have you driven much on the new Carb? Just wondering if you noticed any power difference.

Written by Keith Mopar " The new stuff looks real good. Have you driven much on the new Carb? Just wondering if you noticed any power difference."

Thanks, I have not driven much YET . The carb seems to be working fine, no noticeable difference on the negative side and if there are positives they are not showing up yet, only thing is that I now have an electric choke compared to a manual choke before.
Oh yes it sure looks nicer. I only did some tuning myself yet but If I ever get the carb professionally tuned then a metering rod or jet change might change things a bit, but I don`t race so why bother? If there is a change I certainly did not feel it.

Thanks for all the help Dan.
Those valve covers and carb sure make a difference when you open the hood. All the problems I had are almost forgotten already.
Just wanted to share with all of you what it looked like.

Nice engine. One question, where's the alternator bracket coming from?

Thanks, alternator bracket is from 1979 Dodge Ramcharger, same as the engine and then I put my touch on it.
