    I just started my '40 today after three months of mods and "improvements". PS, motormounts, header, new carb, blah, blah. Muffler shop was closed but I had to take a spin anyway. Loud to say the least. Thanks for all the help with my self inflicted problems. Primarily wiring.
    Thanks,
    Ed :)

    Well, I've posted most of this in the past, so forgive my redundancy...
    Added the mini power steering and cooler

    Replaced motormounts

    New waterpump, added 2 groove waterpump pulley and changed from old metal fan to 6 blade nylon. Wanted to go clutch fan, but would have to change out my new waterpump

    Boiled radiator, installed a complete shroud

    Flipped my alternator to the pass side

    Header and 2F intake, '74 carb adapted to 2F aircleaner, and made a nifty warm air intake

    Fabbed a fluid heatriser

    Amazing thing is that it started right up and I only had one leak... fuel fitting on the fuel pump.
    Now about exhaust. I've got a Flowmaster(generic) and 2 1/2" pipe, but now I've installed IDave's SOR 2 piece header. Should I put the y pipe on and reconnect or go with dual exhaust?????

    I would run a y-pipe with single exhaust. One pipe tucked up well will not leave much room for another. I do love the look of dual pipes though. Pics look great!!

    Got a buddy with duelies and glasspacks. Sounds wicked (like it's a 2 stroke), but unless it's done right it can get cluttered real quick.
