i was not sure if i liked the color of the exhaust manifolds but now that they are on the engine i think they will be ok. i am not sure what color they were when these cars were new. i painted these with POR exhaust manifold cast iron paint. i have not decided yet but i may change the bearing shell on #8 rod cap. there was a small pit in the surface of it. i don’t see that it would ever hurt anything but if D&D can sell just one rod bearing i will likely change it. i also need to order a Pertronix.
