Jav, you're insane.
Here you go. Before and after of today’s fun…Jav, you're insane.
Lol!So. Wait. What!! You gave up on the sniper and installed a small block with Thermoquad? Nice, Nice....
Even got that little thingie because it idles like **** if the AC kicks on...Lol!
That was meant to gig Commando1 as he hates thermoquads! It’s from my ‘73 Roadrunner….
But I guess you knew that….
It won’t be needed when I replace that auxiliary engine of an RV2 soon…..Even got that little thingie because it idles like **** if the AC kicks on...
I’ll check that. Thank you.I'm concerned about your using shims to get thru Sanden properly aligned.
Using a genuine Sanden and the bouchilon brackets, I had a perfect fit. No shims.
Following Commando1’s thread on the subject from 2017.Hey when I installes my compressor with the fittings straight up one of them was hitting the hood! Make sure you have clrearance!
>You can see Ivan in the background by the Hummer.Some details done over the last few days.

Changed out the ignition module and sorted and started wrapping some of the wires. Still need to combine and put proper clips on the wires going to the ballast resistor. Next time.

Placed the Sniper main power and fuse on the firewall next to the starter relay. Looks clean and in a logical place. Other side of the starter relay is the relay for the fuel pump.
Instructions were unclear at this point as to the source for power and ground for the relay. Main sniper harness has a blue line marker “Output Ground for Fuel pump Relay” while the instructions called for a separate independent ground. We went with the marked ground in the harness. Worked fine.
Likewise, power for the fuel pump is in line with the main power to the Sniper Computer after the 30 amp inline fuse above. Again, instruction for both the sniper and the fuel pump did not show this.

Numbered the wires for future reference (for the boys in the shop not me) as it’s been a lot of testing and swapping of distributors, caps, rotors etc to get this far.

Put the wheel centers back on the front wheels today so she looks decent again. You can see Ivan in the background by the Hummer.
Man she looks elegant.
You are correct. But it makes no difference. My biggest concern was that the advance was more or less up to allow for ease of timing adjustments.Maybe you've mentioned it in this or your other thread, but is there a reason your distributor is setup 180 degrees out? Stock #1 position is around 6 o'clock?
