Attached is a photo of my new BB. Built by Keith Craft, 514, 565hp, 650ft/lbs on pump gas. And yes, it has the wonderful webers. It started out as the 700hp BB but I wanted the carb change and a little more manners. Working on the MkIII roadster (non-donor) to put it in. How do I post this with the picture instead of the attachment?
Thanks Dan, could you post me some instructions on how to put up the pics.
I am interested in seeing how your project goes. Any unforseen hurdles would be a help. I have all the parts in the garage. I am making a body buck out of aluminum tubing except for the shapes which will be the plywood. It will am making a storage rack above the garage door drive. I can't take the body off until I complete this.
I bought this engine from Carroll Shelby in 2001. It was raced in 1967 when the side oilers became scarce. Long story if anyone is interested, please email me. I'm planning on selling it as a long block, minus the intake and carb. so I can but a new Dove side oiler. I have all the specs., photo's and a short video on you tube, if you're interested, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org Anyway, here she is. (I have changed valve covers to the Pentroofs)

To sotxbutler; How do you like the injection set up? I'm building a 427 and have been looking at the injection but still have this thing for the traditional webbers. I know about the never have to tune for climate thing, but love the old webber look. Any advice?
