Update: Engine almost finished, and new rims!
As usual with any project, you underestimate how much time it takes, and how much money...
My dad got me those rims for $200 with almost brand new tires on them!
Almost buttoned up
I still have to do the valves on the 1969 heads I have, but otherwise the engine is nearly complete!
Reference shot I took of the carb while rebuilding the primaries
That's a Holley 600cfm 4-bbl with vacuum secondaries. It'll make my engine just purr. But it had been sitting for over 17 years, so I was sorely in need of a rebuild.
