Thanks! I wont save much maybe 20 lbs all total , it had clear Plexiglass quarter windows so I just halved the weight of the door and vent windows. I need to redo the headers they are not equal length two tubes are 48" and two are 36" on each side. My engine man says I need 32" tubes and longer collectors.


How much weight do you think you will save? I sure do love those fenderwell headers.

OK, I never saw those on a Comet before. Interesting thought proccess back then. The picture looked like you had cut slots in the deck there but for the life of me I could not figure why you would do that. I was afraid all the work had gotten to you and you were going to run a big flat ricer wing and the struts were going down into the trunk at that point, LOL!!! Mark L

UH OOO. Having too much fun. I hope it's not too bad (read that as too expensive). Let us know what you find. Mark L

I feel your pain! I took the weekend off to go visit my son, but before I left I started disassembling my engine to change the cam. Found more bad new in my pass. cylinder head. The roller rocker had somehow worked it's way off the top of the intake valve and wore out the roller, plus it tore up the end off the valve stem!
Now I have to pull the head also and swap out the bad valve, plus toss these darn rockers and go back to stock type rockers. Hopefully I can save and reue my tud girdles. If all goe well I wont be down long, but I sure hope it' the last time for awhile!
