You can tell the alloy LS is lighter than the cast iron SBC with the nose sitting a smidge higher.

So stoked with it! MASSIVE thanks to my bro, for all his hours and expertise. there is no way I could have done this, in the time we did. Thanks again!

Now to drive it, let the wallet heal and dream of the next project...

John out
Looks Awesome! love the fact you would never know there was an LS hiding under there

Looks great. Congrats. How does it drive?

Do have another question .... how did you go with rego regarding the filler neck?

Talking to my guy today and he says that now I've gone to a modern LS, I have to update the filler neck so it can only accept Unleaded nozzles (filler has that flap inti). Essentially have to cut one off a modern car and fit it.

I thought this rule should be redundant by now. Unless you are putting diesel in it what other choice do you have besides unleaded now?
You can buy plastic caps that fit over the filler that have a unleaded size flap. (can't find the link)

I thought the same, but whilst the reasoning may now be redundant, the law is still in place, and unlikely to be repealed.

This is the cap I was thinking of but looks like you need a threaded filler

Hi Russ,

It was mounted to a flat bracket that we made up. The pedal was bolted to the plate bracket and the bracket was bolted to two of the brake pedal box bolts on the right side of the steering columns.

We then has a longish bolt with a big wide head that was bolted to the back of the mounting plate. The wide head bore against the carpet to react the pressure when accelerating.

John ... how are you finding the Tanks Inc fuel pump system?

I'm running one of their kits, and the Walbro pump is ridiculously loud. I can hear it from 30m away.

Can definitely hear it in the car, but not overly noisy and certainly not from 30m away!
