Sweet! Now you can save the money and time you were going to spend on an engine swap.

What kind of carb are you looking for? I may have one.

Sweet! The Holley 1920 is a very good and simple carb. I'll keep encouraging you to NOT swap the engine. ;) Do the HEI ignition swap and you will get even better performance out of the slant.

Well, with some down time til my carb gets here ive started tearing out the 25 year old interior. Found some nastiness under the carpet, Of course i forgot to bring me camera with the sd card in it so no pics until later. Its amazing how nasty an interior can get. Old moldy foam and carpet. My allergies have been killing me today from it!

Totally know what you're talking about. It's crazy what you find.

So, i finished ripping up the carpet and found my critter problem. A Huge!!!! colony of sugar ants living in the vent and under the carpet in the drivers side footwell. Gross! Went nuts with a can of Raid, and then vacuumed everything out, pulled the vent apart and sprayed more Raid, vacuumed up more dead ants. Now im ready to lay new carpet. forgot the damn sd card again....

My sister once had a Volvo station wagon. I bought a parts wagon to get my sister's back on the road. Someone had left an order of Chinese takeout on the front passenger floorboard of the parts wagon. When I got into the car I discovered a big ant colony and two plastic bags full of wriggling maggots. I just about woofed my cookies cleaning that car out, but it had lots of good parts. I still hate Volvos.
