    That appears to be an early Holley and I doubt that it has power valve blow out protection. I would strongly advise that you install the blow out kit during rebuild. And just out of curiosity what is the number on the metering block? A 650 is 4777.

    Yep, I had planned on it already. You're right. It's 4777 on the metering block.

    I think you probably mean Gearhead Enterprises, Bobby. They sell a lot of streetrod parts on ebay. Gear Vendors makes a really pricey overdrive unit for various vehicles.

    I got my springs from them for the MII and I'm going to get my tubular control arms from them to. I'm going to wait on the cross member unless I run in to a money hole. You won't be able to see that ugly cross member once that Hemi is in there any way. LOL (Hopefully) Ha Ha

    I also ordered a torque converter and some gaskets from Napa. Gathering pieces here and there where I can. We're expecting a new addition in the next few days, so I can't start working on the car for a little while.

    I ordered some gaskets for the hemi and a torque converter for the trans last week. Today I ordered my engine mounts. Slowly but surely. I have to set a time to get started on this. Summer is right around the corner and I miss driving it already!

    Last week I ordered some mounts for the Hemi, and last weekend I got a new gas tank for it as well. No progress yet though.

    I guess so. I am trying to get some bigger pieces so I can think about firing it up once I get the engine and trans in the chassis. Man there's a lot left to buy!

    Can anyone give me some tips on finding a dash cut out from a 47-53 chevy truck? Or where can a guy get a panel with 2 5" holes that are stamped in the steel like that era trucks?

    That would be fairly easy to duplicate with a piece of 20ga. and a 5" hole saw....

    True, but I'd like to try to have the contours in the metal too.

    Not sure if you want to go this route but they sell new ones here.

    I ended up buying a billet one off ebay for my 48 Ford, it was a lot less expensive, but just fit the gauge cluster.
