I got my early Christmas parts that I won on eBay . new valve covers and matching air cleaner, came with filter and breathers!
My car was set up to use a Mr gasket street scoop but after seeing the pics on this site of the vfn fiberglass ram air hood my mind got changed real fast. That's the route I want to go for a hood eventually.
Those Edelbrock elites never go out of style!!

Thanks!! Black silicone it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My plan as well after reading this. Unfortunately some converter and all metal will probably be needed under my top.

I know the guy who designed those.
I agree and very cool Driven. I wish they made them for the Olds V8. Edelbrock didn't even remake the curved script finned covers for the Olds, they did for AMC and Pontiac.

Transmission gears came in today. I am changing from a blueish grey 10 tooth drive gear to a red 7 tooth drive gear. The kit came with a new steel bullet to hold the driven gear and 5 driven gears to pick from. It was a very simple change. Remove the tailshaft. Turn it so the gears lock clip is facing up. Depress the tab down and slide gear off. When reinstalling make Shure the two little lips of the clip are out and it's done. Clean o ring on housing and put back together.

I took advantage of having 60 degrees in January and brought the car back from storage (pulled with a garden tractor lol) and put the engine and transmission in. Hooked up the driveshaft and installed the headers.. took it back to storage cause 4" of snow predicted unfortunately.
