Originally posted by 76TARebel Got the exhaust on... the tires are here and I thought I had everything covered. Then what do ya know... they told me at the exhaust shop that I had a leak around the intake. I took it back to the mechanic and he wasn;t there so I went over to the engine builders and had his crew look at it. Turns out my mechanic ordered the wrong set of intake gaskets (guess he thought all intake gaskets fit all intake/head combos). My builder ordered the right set of gasket and they will be here tomorrow morning. But if my mechanic is as slow as he has been recently it will take lord knows how long just to fix this and get the engine timed correctly and idle set right on the carb. I am going to stay on him to get it done tomorrow so I can drive it to get used to it. Hope to be ready this weekend. Talk about cutting it close.
