Tom that looks really clean. Glad your daughter doesn't mind getting her hands a little dirty. I've had a couple girlfriends that would dive right in and give me a hand (farm girls), and they smell good too!  ;D

Haha, no Wayner, just plain smelled good.  One stopped by when she came to town to pick up somthing for her dad. She had been working cattle, (dehorning/branding etc) hair in a pony tail, jeans tucked in her boots, she didn't smell good that day!  But she wasn't helping me! ;D

I hated the way my spark plug wires looked and saw a picture of letalley1's engine compartment.  I asked him about his distributor and decided to get a Crossfire distributor cap like him.  So I got some Taylor wire looms and ran the wires.  It really cleaned up the way the wires run.  Just have to shorten a few wires to clean it in.
My daughter came over yesterday and help me get the engine back in the car.  Turns out the leaks were the valve covers and the transmission pan.  I bought a new trans pan because the one on the car had a few dings in it.  Hopefully now my garage floor will be a little drier :)
Still working on the shroud.  I'll have some updates on that when I get my grille back from chrome.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The cross fire distributor cap to those that may not know is,  for the large cap HEI GM units .  Has spark plug wires for cyl 1-3-5-7 coming out drivers side and 2-4-6-8 coming out the passenger side, cleaning up the whole look of the wire system.
The crossing is done inside the cap . They run about $49.95 on ebay or less.

If you have aluminum cylinder heads on your sbc , street and performance in Mena Ark make a special set in aluminum that has a special piece for 4 wires that attaches to the back of the cylinder using the factory 3/8 bolt holes in end of the head to really tidy it up even more.

Got a brand new set for new motor see if I can find and take picture of the part later on.

Tom, those wires give a nice clean look, I like that. It looks orderly and uncomplicated. I am also a fan of black engines......it gives a "slimming" look ;D
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

Finally got my grille shell and other parts back from chrome.  Started assembling the grille and radiator today.  Here's how it looks.  Next I'll get the radiator in it and mount the new shroud.

the radshell on a 1933 chevrolet master series is probably the most expensive part on the car , due to the plating prep costs of 2016.
