My 76 has the original engine block, but I'm told that the intake manifold
is from an earlier model. Don't know which one, but it is rusted and I want
to replace it. The carb is an Edelbrock Performer series 600 that the
former owner put in and I'm looking at an Edelbrock Performer or Performer
EPS manifold (polished). I'm also changing out the camshaft for the
Competition Cams Xtreme Energy Cam and Lifter, 262int/270exh,.462int/.469exh
lift, 1,300-5,600 RPM, 110 Lobe Separation (degrees).
I'm replacing the pulleys with March Performance Corvette V-Belt Pulley, and
putting in a chrome water pump and alternator; cleaning the engine block and
repainting Chevy orange.
Does anyone have any input on whether or not I should look at other options?
