04-30-2011 06:59 PM 1930u Winter progress
After rain the whole month of April, over 14" to be exact it finally stopped raining today. I took advantage of the sun and pulled everything out and cleaned winter out of the shop.

04-22-2011 06:47 PM 1930u 392 valve covers
Today I switched out the finned covers for the stock chrome fire power covers. As much as I like the stock ones, I think the finned ones are a better fit for my late 60's early 70's theme.

04-22-2011 06:38 PM 1930u Topped with 1407 Edelbrocks
After much discussion on the forum and a lot of other research, I decided to use my Edelbrock carbs. I still have to rebuild them and set them up for the blower. I always liked the way the AFB carbs looked on a blower. I really want a 4 hole Hilborn but I will have to wait awhile on that purchase $$$$$$$$$$.

04-17-2011 07:54 PM 1930u Blowers on
The blower went on without problems. I also stuck the trans on for the sake of loading the suspension. The trans is a cast iron super T-10, 1968 vintage. It also has a late sixties Hurst shifter and linkage. It's all in great shape but I have to detail it all.

Here's a shot of the Chevy distributor and the adapter sleeve. Out of all the conversion parts this one is by far the best. It's really a slick set up.
