What spot did you end up mounting the surge tank?

I had no luck getting my rocket finished for the weekend still waiting on diff parts :(

I will take a pic for you in the next couple of days. Actually fitted pretty good.

That is a gem, for sure.  They are such beautiful cars...  ;)

I had a '67 with 390, the guy sold it to me for $500 rather than try to replace the driver's side motor mount. A pint of blood and pound of flesh later I understood why.  :(

And, changing the spark plugs is an all-day job..  :'(

Uh? C'mon plugs are easy! You should try a Cleveland in a RHD shock tower car.

Funny this in the last 2 weeks ive seen 2 xy falcons with 460's in them having the towers notched.  Like 66Fairlane said the Clevelands we got over here in the same engine bays are just as bad

Honestly, changing plugs in mine is dead easy. Most of the time I do it with the valve covers off (just to run clearances at the same time) and that makes it a walk in the park. Header bolts on the other hand...............

Here are a couple of pics of the surge tank mounted. Still have a bit of tidying up to do.....one day. There is a small carb type pump that pumps in one of the side fittings. The top fitting returns to the main tank and of course the EFI pump flows out the bottom. The EFI returns to the other 'side' fitting.
