    New to the this place figured I would post so stuff to help keep me motivated, got a 72 new Yorker 2 door from my dad, pretty clean car. He repaired the quarters years ago and sat in primer now for 10 year. I recently got it running again. Jamming the car, was white painting it jet black. Got passenger side done working on the trunk and driver side. Also installed a Holley efi kit, with a fuel tank and pumps for a 70 b body, waiting on fittings for that so tore apart the front end to rebuild and powder coat.

    When I get the rest of the fittings to hook up the fuel I will let you know , installing it is pretty easy. It's 3 wires and installing an 02 sensor and a coolent temp sensor, I made it a lot harder wanting to run in tank fuel pump but an external one would probably work fine. Other then that , need to figure out throttle cable and kick down. And figure out where to install the factory coolent temp sensor on a big block. Used the factory spot for the efi set up

    I doubt it's the same on a 77 new Yorker but anyone running the earlier ones a fuel tank for a 70 b body. Is dam close and bolts up. And tank Inc makes a efi ready tank. I need to see if I need to modify the fuel neck but it's a great option for anyone wants fuel injection

    I might have a Kickdown Linkage if you need it. One piece rod?

    I have the linkage , the holley stuff is set up for GM and the piece I bought for it may or may not work I just haven't cared about it yet. Running the fuel system has been kicking my ass. It might be best just to change to kick down cable and aftermarket throttle cable set up

    I like the in tank pump better then a external, unless the tank is sumped like a drag car.
