Bummed that it has been ten years and my 68 is not finished.

Well hell, looks like a decent set of headers for a 68 with Muncie and angle plug heads are going to very hard to find.
May have to make my own.
Not a terrible job, if my eyes were still any good.
Any suggestions?
Summit coated headers, or if you think you’ll be doing a lot of dents & dings get bare steel painted black do the dings then coating, I bought Patriot coated headers and for the small dings I cut off a broom handle, put it where I needing a ding and hit the broom handle with a BFH
I've got angle plug 492s on my CJ with fenderwall headers, and I've thought about underbody headers and pipes. My answer would be hack off the flange, add chuncks of pipe and rotate the lower header back into original position. I did something very similar with my '55 chevy fenderwall headers as they were crowding the back of the front tire.
Looks like I finally have the answer for my distributor-less ignition.
My old (Cheap!) MS2 V3.0 will handle the timing in conjunction with a 60-2 "Missing teeth" wheel and a pair of four terminal wasted spark coils.
Apparently I do not even need an EDIS-8 or Quadspark units.
Naturally I will be testing all this before it gets near the engine.
I do need to find a good starting point ignition curve to program in.
Hmmm, looks like I am probably selling my Morris Minor Pickup to fund buying a VMC.
Seems I need a VMC/Income more than three trucks. :unsure:
But that leaves me with no economy truck to drive.
So now thinking of getting an economy minded engine for daily driving.
Another 327, 350, 305, TBI type FI?
I would still have the Muncie with GV overdrive.
With my 'Glass front clip doing an engine swap before play days would not be THAT hard, right?
