Since almost everything was nearly new, the reinstallation went quite smoothly. A rebuilt starter was installed, the original tach drive generator overhauled, and the new powerplant slipped its way into its new home. Surprisingly, one of the biggest challenges was finding a somewhat original-looking air cleaner that would fit the Edelbrock carburetor and also provide adequate hood clearance. It ended up taking selected parts from each of three different factory and aftermarket air cleaners to find a combination that would work-an Edelbrock dropped base, a K&N air filter, and a '65-'67 Corvette 365hp repro air-cleaner lid with a decal from a '70 Corvette. The final assembly is an appropriate complement to the LT-1 valve covers.
