    I plan on running a windage tray in the lifter area and a small baffle under the hole! I hope that will work? Thanks for the advice!!!

    That should work fine. I figured you had already had given that some thought. Keep up the good work.

    I have been doing some planning on my coupe. The crate 350 my wife bought me is on the list. Since it is a new crate motor, the cam and lifters are new. However I would like to try a new Comp Cams Thumpr cam. Could I just buy the cam, use my new lifters and maybe buy their springs and assemble? I know that seems cheap but I don’t want to waste money either! Opinions are welcome, positive or negative!!

    Using your lifters and CompCams valves springs should work fine. Use plenty of their cam lube and break the cam/lifters in as they reccomend. I've run 3 or 4 of those cams in my cars. Run and sound great.

Fabricated oak stand offs with attach bracket. Glassed them into place with hidden fasteners in from below! Routed cables forward and then aft to go through the floor in a blister area for the quick change clearance, then through the aft block and finally up to the arm. Next I will secure the cable routing underneath and cut and install cables! Wow I might actually have mechanical brakes in the rear!!!
