Update and some progress pics on FFR 7593. Have gotten alot done, but still alot to go. I installed my hidden battery box in the trunk, and ran all my power wires, along with the battery cut off mounted on the rear bulkhead in between the seats. I have all my fuel lines/ fuel pump done. Installed a new carb, holley HP 650 DP. Only thing left to do to the engine is adjust the rockers, button up the valve covers and get some oil in her. I had my driveshaft shortened, and its installed. Ive got my fan mounted in a custom shroud. I was able to bump the starter over the other night, so its so close.

Anyways here's some pic updates

Very nice build. Engine compartment looks really sweet. Please do something different with the battery cables - looks like a short waiting to happen.

The camera angle makes the cables look close, they are actually spaced pretty good from the cross bar. But I'll prob move it down a hole to be safe.

Where and how is your neg cable hooked to the frame? I need to do mine this weekend.

Drill and tap into the 2x4 main tube was what I was thinking.

Your build looks really nice!

Looks Great!

Getting excited and anxious aren't you??!! I was there just a couple months ago, first start.
It gets better! First Go-Kart still has me smiling!!:001_smile:

Good Luck, you're REALLY CLOSE :w00t:

Blitz, you’re doing a nice job…you have a nice build going. Of course you know; You have to do a nice job with those Goodyear Billboards.

One thing though: Is that your final serpentine belt routing? I would be concerned that you may not have enough wrap around the water pump. You may get some slippage.

Man thats no lie, its so close I can taste it :001_tongue:

@Avalanche, Yes thats how I did mine

@Jack, Thanks for the compliments, as far as the belt goes I "think" it will be enough, if not I'll have to figure out something else. It doesnt look like much in the pic, but there is a decent grab on the water pump pulley.
