I am very pleased with the fuel lines. The only issue I had, and it's not with the fuel lines is that when I installed the coupler into the fuel inlet my fuel bowl (2 of them) cracked. Over time the fuel bowls became brittle. I replaced them with aluminum ones and issue was fixed. As with any rigid fuel line, it took some tweaking to get them to stop dripping. I ditched the supplied aluminum crush gasket and it was solved. No problems now.

It hard to see i the pic, but my booster line goes into the spacer on the back and the pcv goes into the carb base plate (pic 2). The linkage blocked the pcv from the space on the frontr. On the other side the spacer nipple is capped off. I removed the booster line for the pic.

I had to put spacers under the linkage base plate to clear tall valve covers. I since have removed those covers, so I am going to lower the linkage back down.

Hope these help. If you have anymore questions, just let me know. These pics really make my engine look like crap, but it really is polished and clean. Crappy camera I guess.

Edelbrock boost referencing

I just thought I'd share how I "boost referenced" a friend's Edelbrocks with some pics. His blown engine is still alive today!!

Thank you!

You guys are awesome! Thanks for all of the pictures. It really helps.

I have another question. It looks like my right valve cover interferes with the blower intake. I am running Dart heads and they have a raised rail. My valve covers are polished cast aluminum. The right side actually hits the blower studs and I cannot remove it without unscrewing the studs. Can I just cut the portion that hangs under the intake off?

Sure, I had the same issue with mine, you're using the correct aluminum studs I assume? My problem was more with fabricated valve covers hitting along the sides.

Do you have the intake manifold gaskets on? Can't tell from the pic. I have heard of people that shaved the bottom of the intake off.

Fel-pro 1256 intake gasket is reccomended for the SBC. It is pretty thick to bring that intake up some.

I do have the intake gaskets on in the pic. They are Felpro 1205's to match the ports on the Dart heads. Looks like I have some grinding to do.

Just cut the studs off a little. They don't see much torque. You may even have to grind a bit of angle on the manifold like I did.

VC fasteners are another story. I have a nut driver that carry in the car for tightening them. the driver side top ones are tough to get to with this linkage....but possible. do carry extra nuts. I also modified a socket with a magnet siliconed into it. ARP I think makes a neat aluminum tall nut for about $12 a set of 4.

Those are nice lines. I use the other type for a bit cleaner look but they don't fit as nice as these do.

This is what we all use.
