With the new Pertronix stuff I'd gap the plugs at .030". If the Autolites give you any problems (they aren't as good as they once were) I'd...
I don't see why not. It'll be a bit different to bleed, but should work fine once bled. I'd have a bleeder on the slave if at all possible,and...
Yes, one hole is just not used and doesn't affect anything. My '41 came stock with that setup.

If the 1/2" belt doesn't bottom out in the 5/8" pulleys' grooves it'll do just fine. The problem is when the bottom of the belt sits so deep it...
Ok, that's officially cool as it can be. Well Done!
Uh...guys, if you'll read back a few posts you'll see that the thief is already in jail on another offense. So yeah...there is jail time.

I built this about 5 yrs ago....way too much fun!
Yes,it does engage the oil pump drive enough. We've run several race engines this way with no problems,and I have a street engine with this setup...
I'll be there in the mighty Falcon this year....no racing though,just spectatin'.
