    Really dislike Bendsten's starter, it just doesn't flow with vintage parts. Checked out your cat at Ty-Rods. You nailed it, Ron pcv6.jpg pcv7.jpg

    Just a quick ? Regarding these power plants. I have a 390 and was curious as to what radiators you guys are using to keep them cool?

    Great thread!
    Here are a couple of Caddys in cars I've built. The first is a 390 with and Edmund's intake and WCFB carbs. It's in the #ElDorodder 32 Tudor.

    How did those headers fit with the stock steering box?

    That's the only other Weiand Cadillac 3 carb intake I've seen. I put mine on the Bridgeport to get the carburetor mounting flanges more in line with crankshaft centerline. Carburetors had a drastic forward tilt. I always thought it was a marine application. So now I'm confused. Ron

    The truck had custom headers and a vega box. The sedan had Sanderson headers and an f1 box.
