Our good friend Jim Sanborn put the finishing touches on our engine buildup. Sanborn re-installed the Performance Distributors HEI distributor and the Jacobs spark plug wires that we bolted on in Part III (CC, December 1994), but he added a set of Made For You spark plug wire holders to avoid any burning mishaps. The stock Quadrajet 750cfm carb was also reused, along with a fresh Fel-Pro carb-to-intake gasket. Notice the good looks of the various pulleys and brackets. Just because you’re on a tight budget doesn’t mean that you can’t clean up and repaint the parts so they look good.
