    Having to notch motor mount on driver's side to fit block and dip stick . Don't really want to remove that much metal just for dip stick. Dip stick is canton universal. Any suggestions?

    Is it possible to put a bend in the dipstick tube to better clear the motor mount. Maybe using a brake/fuel line bender to put a gentle curve that either clears the mount completely or just enough so that you can only slightly notch the mount?

    The another option might be a universal flexible dipstick such as LOkar. http://lokar.com/catalog/#page=77

    The last option might be to plug the Canton oil pan and use the stock block hole location and a Lokar dipstick. Good Luck!

    I finally got the pace car fired up with the new 331. Had to fix 2 fuel leaks at the carburetor and an oil leak at valve cover. Having issues with timing and of course I had a couple plug wires wrong... even after checking and rechecking. I've been working on it late at night recently, due to having too much going on. But despite all the issues (plug wires, timing, leaks, coolant temp gauge not working, starter relay trigger wire went dead for some reason, new fan controller not working) it fired up on the first try. Will be another month before I can start working the bugs out. I go back out on the river tomorrow. When I get back, I'm planning on swapping in an 8.8 rear, fixing all the bugs, and then getting it in the paint shop.

    I finished up the touch-up painting on my engine bay. I removed the a/c holes in the firewall since the car won't have a/c wit the new V8 going in. I have a couple areas that I would do more on if I go back to it, but for now it's enough to start assembly on the car to get ready for Spring.

    Today we went surfing, but, not at where the photo is taken.
    The drive was great and the surf was very ordinary.
