I posted earlier about restricted exhaust as I have experienced the"holding back" feeling from this issue.

I have attached a pic of your header. Is this normal? Things look a little strange to me but maybe I'm mistaken.

Early Pic

That was a picture I took last winter, I didn't use those headers but went to a set of Hedman blockhuggers and ran them into a set of dual 2 1/2 " exhaust pipes with Thrush mufflers so I am pretty sure that the exhaust is flowing freely, As a matter of fact I know it is as I felt the exhaust coming out the tail pipes a while ago. I appreciate the fact that you took the time to look at that and offer that suggestion ..Thanks

using a baffled/filtered vent on one valve cover and using a pcv in the opposite cover works great. you can use a rubber hose from the pcv to the carb and it'll vacuum the oil mist out of the motor. look at a stock motor and how they're plumbed. the designers did a pretty good job of engineering the motors and pcv system. follow their example and you'll be just fine. notice though that they don't feed the pcv line into the high vacuum port on your carb, but use a filter in the air filter housing. it's a low vacuum that your air filter housing uses to vent the pcv system.

Are you Suggesting

that I might be pulling too much from the PCV valve by having it in the front port of the carb ? I just thought that it should got to that port.

Finally !!!

I've been talking to a local mechanic for the past week or so and he came over today and said that he was thinking that it was the transmission. He asked me if I had taken it apart and I said that I but a shift kit in it. His suspicion was that I missed putting the shiftrer arm in properly when I put the valve body back in and so we took the pan off and as we lowered the valve body, he could see that something was wrong and it has been stuck in low gear all the time. As well ,it was a little low on fluid so it wasn't working as it should but it was working enough to hold the engine back. Then somehow I must have revved it more or did something for it to actually turn the wheels and hit the garage door. So I'm off to get a pan gasket tomorrow and I am feeling confident that it's all good to go now. The only thing is now I can't get it out of the garage because I haven't got my new door on yet .....Thanks to everyone here who offered advise and suggestions, I really appreciate them all ...

The Car Runs

I got the garage door fixed and took the car out for it's first run and it ran pretty good. It has a bit of a stumble and I think it's maybe too loud but it seems to be running pretty strong. I'm not sure where the temp should be sitting as I'm using the original gauge that is in the dash but it may be a bit too warm, I'll have to build a shroud over the winter. Anyways, I've got it out and running and that was my goal for the summer so now I can start working on the interior. Once again thanks to all that helped me through this engine and tranny swap, I really apprecite all the advice..
