RE: Dang it, I hate working this hard! There appear to
Thanks Hawkrod59 for all that hard work!
It confirms I shouldn't use the tube I made from Walter's template nor use the brass fitting on my 59 T-Bird. It's things like that that get noticed right away at shows, long before the numbers are checked.
I'll be putting the check valve directly into the block and using the 1/4 inch tube instead of the 5/16ths inch Lincoln tube. If anyone needs dimentions from the T-Bird tube, I am working on a drawing which I will pdf for 430 Bird owners so they can make a tube if their's is missing.
