    If the Edelbrocks are working, I'd sure stick with them. I've always been a Holley guy, but I'd leave Edelbrocks if I already had them, and was happy.

    That's weird! I understand the valves and springs to seal the unused cylinders, but not the rockers and pushrods on the same? Seems like just having the valves and valve springs would make the engine...

    Well at least it's old enough you aren't confined to restoration exact copies of original parts. I've found a lot of oddball electrical parts for other cars, and even motorcycles I've used in my old...

    The aluminum heads, and larger chambers should make it pump gas friendly. I really like the look of this old Mopar sedan!

    No, you said you needed to find some smooth material also? That's what I was referring to.

    "but I need a thin flexible material to make the panels."

    Not necessarily better Dave. There is such a thing as too large, which will result in lost performance. I run 2.5" on all my SBC engines, and most BBC engines too.
