351W, Edelbrock RPM AirGap, Holley carb, no spacer.

It hits. I puckered my good hood with the filter stud before it was even close to closing.

Ahh, okay, with a 351 it will be too high :)

I used modelling clay to determine the thickness of the spacer on mine, rolled it like a cigar, then placed around the aircleaner lid, and on the middle, put a dab of soap on the high end so it would not stick to the hood, closed the hood and went for a drive, to be sure i got real measurements

all ok, ready for the trip "south".

small transmission leak seems to come from the pan. The mechanic showed me the overtightened pan where the cork gasket was squished out here and there.

I'll buy a kit, and take advantage to change oil, filter and new gasket later on. The leak is very minor, 1 foot stain over 7 months of hibernation.

a smaller coolant leak seems to come from the timing cover. That will just have to wait ($$$...)

Over the last 3 days, removed interior and changed the carpet.
both rear inside panels were damaged. The driver's side was held by masking tape with large chunks missing. I will post pics on motortopia and link when i get back home.

this one was plastic welded and riveted to an aluminium sheet so it would fit the required curve.

As for the console, it had been seriously damaged by the last garage that worked on it. Rear 1/3rd was separated. Some plastic welding using plastic panels fron an old pc printer worked perfectly, but the console would crack somewhere else as soon as it was touched

It is now sitting correctly centered, but not screwed in. It is, however, steadier than it was.

changed the transmission pan and filter this morning.

This should eliminate the leak from an overtightened pan, crushing the gasket.

Noticed the pinion leaking though. Will take care of that at the next oil change.
I have driven it for the last 2 wonderfully sunny days

Be advised I means the mechanic at the garage...
