I know the feeling, I ended up spending $700 last week...... ops.Nice, I will hopefully be doing the same with my test engine in a few weeks. Its been a VERY expensive week for me, but going to buy a used J23 next weekend that I have my eyes on.
Cheers, but I do agree. The black coils with neat wiring would look good. I'll see what I want to do once it's in the car.Very nice job on the cover. I realise those only have the single row chain, I haven't worked on one of them for a while. Even the race car has a double row roller chain, but thats typical V8 for you tho.
I do think a coil cover in either black, or polished stainless would look good, just something to break the "sea of red" on the top. Mind you, leaving it bare with clean coil packs and neat wiring would be just as equally nice.
I have a tube of normal rtv sealant which is blue, a tube of high temp rtv which is red. But I did see that they make the "super black" which is supposed to be super oil resistant. I was originally just going to use the red high temp rtv but might get a tube of the black for the oil pan and bottom cradle as they will be seeing alot of oil.As for the oil leaks...I discovered the hard way how difficult clean oil on a gloss back surface is to find, hence my comment earlier. Hopefully you won't have any. Permatex grey as a contrast on the mating surfaces? or are you going to go boy racer orange, or get the black stuff?
