    In the future is a cast aluminum Intake that will mount a Weber DGV 32/36 progressive 2bbl. and a Tri Y style header for the other side. Manifold is waiting for some TIG welding to be done and I have to wait to design the Header until everything is jammed in the Chassis

    Very nice. I guess maybe I lost track but, weren't asking about performance mods and, if so, did you do any of them?

    X2! I am curious about the reason for using an oversize alternator pulley?

    Who's doing the distributor for you? Local shop or are you sending it off? How did you determine the optimal settings?

    I have an IAT 4405 and think about putting it on the Fhead

    It slows down the alternator a little at hwy speeds reducing drag. Also increases the contact area for the belt.

    I'm doing the distributor a local shop has an old Sun distributor machine I can use. As to the numbers one of the guys on the CJ-2A pagr had the factory spec's I consider them a starting point. I will need to adjust for the higher Octane fuel and Ethanol in todays gasoline.

    Interesting. I knew it would slow the alternator down, hadn't thought about it reducing drag at all. More belt contact area is good too.
