For fitzy's info and any one else rebuilding their carter 

i started my carter rebuild with a edelbrock kit and as stated above there are parts that justA don’t work 

like the carb base gasket 🙄

The one that comes in the kit is as good as useless for anything but a race car with a single plane intake manifold !!

as you can see the stock 389 manifold is a dual plane and needs for all 4 barrels to be sealed to its port individually!

this is the gasket that was on there a really thick one, that i am guessing helped combat heat soak

Hey Kiwi, can you give us a pic of your installed oil adapter? I want to see the angle and how much it protrudes. I think I'll do the same. Did you buy from Rockauto?

i do have one job that has to be done before i fit the long branch headers!! 

the paint i applied has to be baked for 20 mins at 175c .... so i need to stick them in the bosses oven.... i might justA wait till she goes to her mothers for the night and if it stinks the house out i have time to air it !!! hahaha :dancingpontiac:OR

i did think about using the pizza oven.... it might do the job, justA use a infared thermometer and tune the temp to 175... hmmmm which way will be easier🤔

Pizza flavoured headers, Preparation H, what have I been missing out on? Remember when we used to talk about Pontiac related items?

Whenever I see Prep H on the shelf, it reminds me of Homer sneaking into a store to pick up incontinence diapers, and then he almost made it back to his car wearing sunnies and an overcoat when over the loudspeaker the sales clerk announces that he's forgotten his bed wetting alarm (I think) loud enough for the entire store and carpark to hear. Good ol' Prep H, sounds much nicer than haemorroid cream. We have another product here called Femfresh, which sounds more discreet than Honey Flavoured [email protected]#t Spray.

 

I can't make this stuff up......

Oh, I'd say we are WAY off topic! But it's funny!
