I don't know if I would call that a positive.
I'll rephrase, the gaskets worked mint, because I can't pull the headers.

There's no connections on my exhaust, its welded from header to the axle dump. Professionally bent and welded for $200 and I never have to worry about it leaking. That's a positive in my book.

Been drivin it more lately. Reset the timing to 10 deg and that helped a lot with drivability. The speedometer is right about 50% off. That means the trip meter is too. Thinkin about swapping out the speedo I have out for a autometer or something similar.

So I'm having an issue with my rear fuel tank letting air in the lines. I'm not sure what's going on. At first I thought the power wire and ground were hooked up backwards, I swapped them and it got better. But now it's doing it again with a full tank. So now I'm stumped. I'm gonna pull the fuel line and try the wiring again. Then I'm gonna try to decide how to mount the fill spouts so I can just put the nozzle in and wash the windows lol.
