    Here are more pics of the headers and engine placement I'm going with. Hopefully this weekend I can find the time to build the engine mounts and transmission mount. Then it will be time for the rear suspension.

    OOOOOOOoooooo... there's many keyboards around the country with drool all over them right now!! 8-)


    Not sure if it helps but the round part just above the flange at the bottom of the header looks like an inch maybe an inch and a half could come out and it would add some clearance?
    Just thinkin' out loud...

    But it'll look bad-ass! 8-)

    Looks like you're using a good portion of the recessed firewall now

    The carbs/distributor clearance is sure tight but looks like it does give you enough room for everything. It will be interesting to see what you decide on for air cleaner(s).

    It does look good in there!!!! Fess up....how much time have you lost just standing back and looking at it ?

    Mike, you must be reading my mind. My plan is to cut them above the tag they welded on there and then add the v band there. That should be about perfect then.

    Thanks. I can't wait until it's all painted up and looking nice.

    I have a plan to use 4 lawn mower deck belt gaurds and I'm going to build a bat wing type air cleaner similar to the Cadillac ones. I was searching dual quad air cleaners and I wasn't seeing anything that I really liked. (In my price range) I kind of thought about making some like the imperials had, but that really isn't the look I want. I've kind of threw out the idea of the T/A scoop for now. If I found another hood, then maybe I'd do that. But for now, I can't bring myself to cut the hood just yet.

    The carb to distributor clearance is tight. I have to put a 1" spacer under the carbs to get the back carb up away from the distributor cap. They just haven't arrived yet.

    I've spent some time looking at it for sure! Haha Trying to get it centered in there, and placed so it looks right in there. It's my background on my computer too.

    Man oh man, those hemi's take up some real estate in an engine bay for sure. Very impressive though and next tim I'm out at my friends hot rod shop, I capture some photo's of his " spare hemi's " in his engine rack and the monster one sitting in his '60 Corvette. I have another friend who has a hemi powered fibreglass 32 Roadster that is patiently waiting for a rebuild of the whole car from frame up. I find the photo of it taken way back in the '70's of it and post it up.

    I'm partial but they are one of the best looking hot rod motors ever I think, you will never regret the added work or expense it will take once its done. Dont forget to leave some sort of room to get the valve covers off, and put a set screw with silicone or pipe tape in the bottom of the valve cover bolt threads, that way if and when you pull off the covers (if you use bolts and not studs, on tight engine bays you cant use studs as you have to pull the cover up and over the studs on aftermarket covers) you wont see water oozing out contaminating your oil, as they go into the water jacket. Lookin Good Matt

    Thanks Matt, I'm planning on using studs on them. I did notice it has 2 bolts on the bottom of them though. I'll have to check for set screws in there.

    I didn't get any time to work on it this weekend. Saturday was honey do day. I took the boys to get their hair cuts. While we waited on the girls to get their hair cut, I went to my parent's place and grabbed some metal to build the engine mounts for the 40 out of. Then it was off to meet the girls for lunch. Afterwords the boys and I headed home. I talked them into picking up sticks up for me while I unloaded their new to them bunk beds. We got their old beds torn down and put away, and the bunk beds hauled up the stairs, assembled and put together before we had to leave for dinner.

    Sunday was honey do day for my mother. My Dad just had his hip replaced on Friday. One of my mom's horses walked through a fence Sunday morning. It ended up being too windy to finish putting her pool up, so my wife and I removed old rotted wood, and put up new fence boards and some posts. In the afternoon my mom brought my Dad home. I helped him in the house and returned to take the fixings my wife brought to make dinner for everyone. As I went up the stairs to the deck, they crashed out from under me. Good thing that didn't happen 2 minutes earlier when Dad was on them. So, my next project was to build new stairs going on the deck for them. Good thing Menards isn't too far away. Haha My middle brother did help do that project. We got done at about 11:30 last night. Boy, I sure do get a lot of stuff done. Maybe someday I'll be that productive on my stuff. Hahaha

    It is certain gratifying when you can help your parents out like that and all live close enough to be able to spend time with each other and especially sharing meals as a close family.

    HMmmmm, since you're such a hard working fella.. I'll refrain from some smarta_ _ wisecrack 'bout bustin' the stairs and blamin' it on rotted wood!

    In all seriousness, so glad we didn't hear you say that you and Dad crashed through! God was watching out for him!

    So what's it like being an over-achiever!

    Hmm, being an over-achiever must mean work, work, work, set back and hope and dream of your goals. LMAO
