thanks,
I don't mind it,it's my hobby,just finding random fire issues makes me upset.
for sure if we hired somebody,it would be basic switches/plugs and still prob cost more.
I've added 3 -sets of 3ways switches(kit/basement stairs/side light),sink light,counter light,added a second side light out back/connected to side light,all inspected now
So we can insulate and cover the walls

Re: Project: Clean the Green Jimmy

I liked these on my 83, Hedman Hedders #69010

Very solid flange, I had to massage the firewall seam a hair on passengerside to clear the collector flange

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Re: Project: Clean the Green Jimmy

Thanks
I was thinking shorties at first but my pipes are 2.25.
And Iíve removed the exhaust butterfly valve.
And the duals are flared up to the manifolds
Figuring now maybe long tubes,since the one side wonít fit.

Re: Project: Clean the Green Jimmy

They sell a shorty spark plug for headers, which makes things a bit easier with any type of headers. They all seem to get in the way on a small block cheby. I believe I used Accell brand
