Should be able to get screens from the hardware store in the garden hose section. Cheaper and easier to replace than the solenoid valves. Just IMHO.

Not joking. But you know your car. I run a 196 in my T-bucket with 5.7 Vortec and an electric fan. Never gets over 205 even when it's close to a hundred ambient temperature.

Fitting it together, making mounts and the hose reliefs. Great fit covers the radiator core, nice clean appearance.

And now for the rest of the story

This morning, paint dried, installed the shroud for the last time.




















Started it up, now sucking air from all sides of the core. Even feel air moving on the front of the firewall. This was a good upgrade.


Now time to get rid of those awful jet coat headers and side pipes, a big mistake.


**Road Trip**
Know of a really cool speed shop down south, in McDonough, GA. ;-)





Two hours later, some wrenching, and we now have chrome headers and side pipes. Great finish, fit was right there, a quick drive through the neighbor hood. Once at running temp parked and went over the header bolts when cooled.

So tomorrow Iíll put the hood on go for a ride and call it done

The cam is refered to as a 151,,it has 447 lift and 221 duration,the springs I like are Isky,capabible of 490 lift ss valves and 90degree locks,,the springs need the capability of 490 lift for the 447 lift cam so if you run 1.6 rockers and have a little valve float,though you should not with good springs,,also if yoyr class don't alow screw in studs and guide plates,,drill a 1/8 hole through the pedestal and drive a roll pin and pin the studs so they wont pull out,,should be bood for 6500 rpm

When you say old style fuel injection what specifically are you wanting to use?
