Well the motor is in, and the fun begins.

Everyhting fights me. This car is Kustom with a capital K. Hi-torque starter does not clear the rather massive repro Group 44 headers. 1 day later it looks like it was made for the car. The Cannon headers collide with the #1 and #6 exhaust. Hydraulic presses are a thing of beauty. Oh, and did I mention that the drive shaft should be attached to the diff before the gearbox goes in?

But one task at a time. Patience, creative thinking and careful execution with attention to detail completes the task in a most natural appearing manner. Patience, Grasshopper.

Any experience with triple SU HS6 carbs on a factory '76 TR6 engine? Looking for pointers on how to choose an initial needle valve size. Thanks.
