Vivian breathes again!! I started her up today after her two year sleep and boy did she purr. I am gonna use this thread for all of the work I do to her. So far she has a new Weber 32/36, new plugs, wires, cap and rotor.
I cleaned up the engine by degreasing it and painting the valve cover. I am going to clean and paint everything as I go through it. I took off the entire air assembly and painted it gloss black.
But here is my first question for all of you. I put the 1/4" phenolic spacer between the car and heat shield. Then I am using the ogts weber to stock air cleaner assembly adapter. My problem is the carb assembly is now too tall for the hood to close. Here is a picture.
