Thats great…..like to exchange notes and pics as the projects get closer to completion. I live in the Chicago land area- is there a reputable machinist who knows how to rebuild a 215ci Aluminum V8 for my 1962 F85 Cutlass Conver.I want to start off with a strong power train. Is D&D Fabs the place to go? I have spoken to Mark of D&D ; extremely knowledgable….he’ 7 hours away, a bit far. I was hopping to find someone local. But I’d be willing to take it to D&D knowing it will be done right. This car comes with an Eddlebrock 4BRL of which most folks are suggesting the Eddlebrock carb is a much better piece than the original 4BRL carb. Unless I’m going concourse, I should stay with the Eddlebrock…is that right? This car does have the original carb in a box. Do you know of someone who can rebuild the original carb to include applying the DICHROMATE for protection,that way I have it ready for install if I choose to go that way.
