Boys Carl that don't look right,thats a pretty hot plug there. Its a -6 heat range

Do you know what came stock in them heads for a plug? I can cross it over and find some thing a little cooler,
I'd run some thing in the -8 range for heat running it on the street with a little track use if it were me.

Tom,

Let me double check on the plugs.

I am not totally sure that is the right number.

If you know what year the heads are any parts place can get you the proper replacement number,
Then run it by me and I can convert it to an Autolite Racing number

If they are the 5/8 hex and the reach is like 5/8 long I can figure it out,oh and are the plugs the tapered seat ones? Or do they have the gasket?

O nay a roblem pay

Well, it's a few more days off before I am behind the wheel.

We decided to go 1/2" fuel line all the way from the gas tank, braided lines., electric fuel pump with regulator. Going to go with serpintine belt system, and he wants to put on a shroud.

Hope to have it Friday, but not going to be disapointed if it isn't ready.
