I agree, the only thing I did not like was the double bump for the dipstick. Obviously only one will match the pan, I added a little silicon in the the area of the one not used. Obviously an attempt to make one gasket fit both styles.

Page 70 woooooo! lol

When I put the Monza pan on this engine yrs ago, I thought the rear main only has a few thousand miles on it, should be ok. Big mistake, didn't consider that it was 20 years old. doh All back together now

Coming along very nicely. I just redid my exhaust tips from straight out to two shorter turn downs, really like the look.

Looks good Clyde

I'm not real keen with how low the muffler bodies ended up on mine, may make changes later. I got some bad advice and bought the wrong style. I do like the double barrel look tho and it sounds pretty awesome, I think.

It was pretty obvious that the gas tank wasn't getting vented. Pull the cap off after a drive and could hear the tank shrink as a big blast of vapor came out filler. The liquid / vapor separator was plugged.

The purge port isn't needed so I used a plastic 5/8" copper tube end cap to close it off, pressed on nice and tight. The other modification needed is for the electrical plug. I used a 4 pin trailer connector.
