    Yeah thats the nicest air cleaner I have. I might paint it and put a Holley sticker on it. I do have a vaccum gauge

    Well it was a busy weekend we got the Buick buttoned up and i only had to install the thermostat three times before it stopped leaking. It didnt take much and she fired up pretty easily and ran well. but for some reason after i turned her off to find a air cleaner so i could take her for a test drive when i fired her up again she ran like absolute crap. Im not sure what changed between the first and second start up.But heres some cool pics.

    Heres what the coolant passages looked like when I took the intake off. Now I know why I never had any heat and why she liked to run hot at idle even with that big aluminum radiator. This is after I started to clean them out.

    so i finally got off my butt and decided to start working on the special again. shes sat for a month or two because of some personal problems that made me lose interest in the hobby and a rochester 2 jet that seems to hate me. ive decided to make some changes.
