The classic car was brought to TW for an oil leak on the back of the motor which turned out to be the lack of a plug in the back of the gun drilled Crower Ultralite crankshaft. The crew at TW fabbed and installed an aluminum plug. Unfortunately, the motor had to be pulled in order to make the repair.
The owner has requested that the crew at TW install a AEM Methanol injection system. This will allow the car to run on 91 octane fuel instead of mixing race fuel. The intake temps will be lower and the car will be easier to tune and be more consistent running. Notice the custom installation with the methanol tank in the trunk and plumbing up to the carb. They will also have to install a electronic controller that will regulate the flow of methanol depending on engine rpm and WOT.
My finger is pointing to the input methanol line into the carb.
The next project for the '74 Nova is header work. The current headers are not a perfect fit, they rub on the spark plug boots and make it nearly impossible to change the plugs. The headers also have been "dented" to try and quick fix the issue. The crew at TW will remove the headers and reroute the pipes around and over the top of the plugs. This will allow the spark plugs to be changed easily also not worrying about the melting boots. Once the headers are finished being modified they will be ceramic coated.
The headers are out of the car and being modified so they fit in the car.
The custom modified headers are back from the ceramic coating shop. The have been installed and look great. There is plenty of clearance for the spark plugs and plug wires but it doesn't hurt if there is a little heat shield added...
