I hope you don't have to take it to Mildura!
I did here something about a strip near Barmera.
My 2:56 gears might help me get there but I don't think they would help on the strip, I might head for the salt lakes.

I recieved a box of parts from Summit today. Included was a set of the Morris Classic Concept 3 point inertia reel seat belts, and a Stewart Warner water temp gauge. It is designed to suit the 60's muscle cars:

Where's the gauge going to be located?
Can you show some pics of the Morris seatbelts when you are putting them in or after you put them in? I have been thinking about these for a while as the wife really doesn't like the lap belts we have now.

Yeah my wife doesn't like the lap belts either. Hence the reason for the 3 point seat belts. They are sitting in the box at the moment, but i'll be sure to post up pics of the installation. Its one thing I couldn't find many pics of when I was researching about 3 point belts.

The gauge is going to be subtlety mounted under the dash.

Just spent the last 5 hours pulling out my old starter and putting in the new one. I don't think it should take that long.
Laying on your back fitting & shimming starter motors is a pr!ck of a job, wish I still had a pit or a hoist!

Moved my temp gauge sender unit from the back of the manifold to the port at the front near the thermostat housing, the rear one on the manifold doesn't have water passing by it only up to it, so it used to take 30 mins to get a reading

I also put an original SS steering wheel on it also.

Hey Chris, is that the same for all manifolds? I have mine on the back of a RPM Air-Gap and the readings I'm getting are really low but I didn't know if it was because something was wrong or I haven't driven for long enough ( illegally around the block ).

I have had the same problem on 3 different manifolds now it seems the rear fitting on both small and big blocks on some manifolds, the water jacket doesn't flow through to anywhere. the fitting is for connecting the rear to the front of the manifold with another hose for extra cooling.

Move the sender to the front or to the fitting into the top of the head the water is flowing past the sender from around the thermostat housing and heater hose side to side on the front of the manifold

In the pics you can see where the front water jacket is definitely open from left to right and the water flows past, but the rear ones are blind and don't go anywhere so the water comes to the sender and stops and takes ages to heat up.

Hope that helps CHRIS
