I want to have the Nova done in time to participate. How lame would it be to sponsor an event, designed at driving your hot rods and then not have one finished? In my mind I would have had plenty of time...it never works out that way.
Here's the event: www.hotrodhundred.com .
I have been thrashing every available moment and I have come to a decision.
This is the last late model I will build. Nothing newer than 1940 for me. Way too time consuming. I could have built 2 1936 Ford pickups for the same money and time.
Anyway, I have plumbed the fuel lines, put in an in tank pump with a return style regulator, added subframe connectors, removed the headers and replaced with ram's horn manifolds, plumbed the brake lines, started bleeding the brakes and chased electrical gremlins until I got all of the lights to work. Here are a few pics from the thrash. I'll post more when I get time.
Ordered a new replacement tank with the built in fuel injection pump baffles from Tanks, Inc in Iowa. Good folks.
