    i have those same hedders. very difficult to start the #1, rear exhaust hedder bolt. put your drill in the hole, oblong the hole a little, towards the #3 cylinder. it will really help.

    It is not Mark, it is a SBC. I was going to put a BBC in it and I have the BBC engine but I decided to run the SBC since it checked out good.

    Lol, I can see how you would think that Bama. I haven't decided on a color or colors yet but I'm thinking strongly about a 2 stage Kirker custom paint. The car was orignally India Ivory and Matador Red, maybe I'll go back to that or close to that.

    Yes, they are RHS heads.
