Sling the flex fan and the electric fan arrangement over the fence. Go to your favorite boneyard and purchase all the stock stuff from the water pump to the radiator from a V8 Nova. Go to Autozone and purchase a brand new fan clutch with thermostat.

Put 20 degrees initial spark timing in at the crank. Modify the advance curve in the distributor to yield a total initial and centrifugal timing of 36 degrees, all in by 2800. If you experience kick-back against the starter due to the initial advance at the crank, cut into the power wire to the coil and install a push-button, momentary-off, normally on switch. To crank the motor, hold the momentary switch down with one hand (cutting juice to the coil) while your other hand operates the start key. Once the motor is twisting up, release the momentary button and key switch and the motor will be running.
