Here's my newly arrived junk!!

I was happy the person I bought it from had a 601 catalog number decal to go with it and he threw it in at no extra charge. This was usually only available with factory installed batteries. I almost made this stuff myself, but I got lazy.

He didn't have an "eye" decal, so I made my own. Came out pretty good I think. I enhanced it to make it more visible here, but it will actually be darker to match the battery top. I did make myself a non-HD battery version (730 catalog number) of the smaller 87 battery decal as well based on an original:

And I got my oil cap too! I'll be putting that on tomorrow (long, arduous job. Might need to pack a lunch :) ). MAYBE do the decals for the battery top as well.

I always thought the Olds 307 took 10W40 factory. I usually used a 5W30 or 10W30 in them but years later thought it was mentioned as10W40 factory.

s&b open top air cleaner for my car so the cowl hood becomes functional, any one have any thoughts about those cowl hood heat shields that have the cut out so its a bit more functional and only cooler air coming in?

technically bought yesterday, but ordered all new body bushings and bolts from Dixie MC and then also won a set of Vintage Holley aluminum valve covers that i'm going to clean and polish up to put on the 455.
