    Try looking at cloth covered fuel/oil lines you may get some that you can feed wire down through-I used it on my Indian ,not sure if you can zoom in to my avitar pic but under the tank close by my knee or at the petrol filler

    image.jpg And does anyone know what water outlet would work here? Originally it’s a big box/cooler for the tranny. I don’t have that piece. And Chevy doesn’t work.

There is a plastic sleeve that must be used. According to pertronix, there is a magnet inside the plastic spacer. Tho the instructions say may not be needed, but for this application, it is. Also pertronix says the ground must be bolted to the new housing which is also bolted to the points plate.

    So I finally found the water outlet. Prior to 78 mopar used a big thermostat, wider bolt pattern. After 78, like this 1980 Plymouth 318ci thermostat housing, the bolt pattern is smaller as is the thermostat. Unfortunately I had to oval the bolt holes a bit more. Especially cuz after 78 mopar used 5/16 bolt. I included the part number. Also can’t find the right hose but I was able to put one together with a pipe in between for an adapter. Yes, I will brace em, something else I gotta go buy B39F46CE-2F49-4239-B59F-D0A9E4D4D38F.jpeg D90E9E57-83A6-4CDC-A69B-F24EB4F102BE.jpeg

    Interesting build, like the Hemi of course and the headlights are a nice touch too. Just joined so watching all I can to figure out the 31 5 window I just bought. Thanks for sharing your build, sweet 55 too.
