I was doing some work on a boat last week.
While rewiring the pumps (trim, fuel, bilge) It hit me...
This *is* a 460, and those OMC king cobra valve covers look pretty close to the Blue Thunder ones.
I like that they're not 4" tall
There is a small flat in the center but no provision for wire separators.
If I can get them for $100 and clean them up I will finally be rid of tin.
Ebay can be fickle.
A lot can happen in the last minutes of any listing.
Same with the used 1826.
If it doesn't attract a lot of bids, a kit and a Ford throttle stud are not a big deal.
I know enough people with a fuel log kicking around the garage.
Meanwhile my truck is not missing, and stalling if I brake too hard any more.
Not today but recently I've also replaced the muffler and made a head pipe flange.
Got a *new* spare tire rim and cleaned up the carrier.
Bridged the passenger side door at the vent window pivot.
There's always something when your truck is a dd.
Lil'Red is a '87 F250 HD, 4.10's, 1356 4x4, Zf-5, 3G, PMGR, Saginaw PS, desmogged with a Holley 80508 and Performer intake.
Too much other stuff to mention.
