Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: 1978 Chevy Sport Re-creation

misled,
This is a very clean build. your attention to detail I think rivals "N2TRUX". I am in the beginning stages of a daily driver build (on here too) and will be using some of your details to help with mine. thank you for the time of sharing..... great build so far!!

Re: 1978 Chevy Sport Re-creation

I read through and might have missed it. Can you tell me about this switching valve? I plan to run a similar system on Jake.

Re: 1978 Chevy Sport Re-creation

Ken,

This is the selector valve:
http://products.pollakaftermarket.co...n-valve/42-159

Can handle up to 65psi fuel pressure.

This is the kit they offer that comes with the selector valve, a DPDT switch, the connector for the valve and a switch plate that has main & aux indications.

http://products.pollakaftermarket.co...n-valve/42-300

The link has another link to a installation sheet with a great diagram for installation. the factory wiring and dash switch can be used to control the valve also.

Sorry folks, I was out of state a couple days.

This is the valve included in the kit I bought from GMACHINZ here on the board.

I appreciate the compliments all........some days I feel I will croak before I ever get the darn thing done.
