    Tripp, I've been following the blog and I must say that your taste in engine colors is impeccable!!

    Those headers look just great too along with the exhaust work below. Mine have been on for nearly five years and are very shiny to this day. They are Pacesetters and were Jet Hot coated back then. The process is probably much better now.

    Two tips that I will offer (your choice to accept or not)

    1. Insulate and wrap the starter while you can easily get at it. If you need a big plug in connector to go on the wire feeding the starter, PM me your address and I'll send you one. I have a few extras somewhere in my basement.





    2. Tell Ted that I said to ask you about getting a remote bleeder for your slave cylinder from him. You have the stock oil filter and it will be a perfect fit and make servicing the slave a breeze. I'll be writing a bit of a story about mine in the next week after I get it on a lift so I can take the pictures of what to do with a spin on adapter.

      Tush, thanks for the encouragement!

      Paul, thanks for the tip on wrapping the starter, and I do have the plug connector.
      Actually, I converted to the spin on oil filter adapter just a few days ago, so I'll need to see your write up on using the remote bleeder with a spin on, but I do plan on calling Ted about getting a remote bleeder.
      Thanks very much for the feedback ! B)

        Jim, you will have to use the NAPA Gold 1361 (short) oil filter in order to make it work. You need to do so and to angle it slightly to have enough clearance for the fittings coming out of the slave to clear. I just put a brand new K&N 2009 (long) filter on mine last week, so I'm going to get everything mounted in place and ready to make the connection at the slave later in the summer when I change oil and filter again.

          I think the pipes attached to your header are reversed. The welded hangers on my exhaust (see your picture 12 of 12 dated 4/13) are towards the rear of the OD. I fabricated a metal strap for support.





          If there are no clearance issues your can use the exhaust hanger from Moss or TRF and eliminate the hangers welded to the pipes. If I had to do it again I would cut of the welded hangers and use the kit.

            Paul,
            Thanks for the oil filter tip, I'll be sure to get the short filters on my next trip to NAPA.

            Ross,
            When I first tried to position the pipes, I had them reversed, but the bend was in the wrong position, I think the Good Parts adapter positions the pipes differently than the stock configuration. This seems to be the only way they come close to fitting, and I do plan on cutting off the welded on brackets as they are just not usable. The Bell exhaust fitting kit seems to have several brackets/adapters.
            Thanks for the input !

                    Paul,
                    Engel Imports in Kalamazoo, Mi. They seem to be the only vendor who carries Bell S/S exhaust systems.

                      Thank you very much. Now if I could only remember who was asking me about one of these......I bookmarked it for when I remember.
