My long term project , morris truck v8

Anything goes - chassis, V6's, V8's etc.
The only solution I could come up with is to make a relief pannel so I started by making a small steel framework and a cardboard template

After I got it made I used a pattern and cut the firewall to fit the insert ,I welded four studs to the rear of the insert to allow attachment to the firewall

Nice fix, shame there wasn't a side entry cap you could have used.

I did find a couple low profile distributors but they both required the use of an MSD box and crank sensor/ trigger wheel, I didn't really want that stuff trying to keep things simple and tidy

I was thinking like you originally, I would be fine with the right cap. I just couldn't find one.

I put on the plug wires the other day and the carb. The carb is an Edelbrock 500cfm with endurashine finish.

I have been working on the metal work on the rear of the bed,I decided to replace the whole lower pannel and do away with the indent for the lisence plate. I made a plate mount that bolts to the frame so it could be placed a little further forward.

my Traveller has the same problem with access to the distributer, you can't get to mine from the front due to the supercharger, so I cut a hole in the bulk head which is accessed by the speedo!

Motherofgod I guess it is a good problem to have especially when a supercharger is involved, I seen your traveler in your other posts, very cool must be a blast to drive

I opted for an aluminum air tank and decided to get the chrome, lots of black out back and thought it might help brighten it up a bit. I made the tank mount from flat stock .

I'm going with two air compressors they are viar 444c compressors they should do well ,decided to go with chrome on them too, probably a little Overkill but I would rather be on the safe side.

I'll be running a group 31 interstate battery it should give me more than enough capacity to handle my compressors and electric fan along with everything else
