I really like the Odyssey batteries I would think a PC680 or maybe PC535 would suffice if your not running a magneto I would definitely try to put an alternator on your car

I ran the D2070ís on my car for years had shake issues and when it did t shake my car would walk down the track not really that straight.  Last year I switched to the 13.00 33.3 -16 M&H tires which are currently impossible to get. What I can tell you is with these stiffer side wall tires my car runs perfectly straight down the track.  I recommend a finding a stiffer side wall tire then the D2070ís.  My car runs 6.47-6.70 SBC with a 10Ē 2 disk and B&J 3 spd.  I run with another FED powerglide car he has the MT big bubbas which I think are ugly on a FED (my opinion doesnít matter) but it works great for him 6.90-7.0ís no shake

With 23į heads I ran between 28 and 32į depending on the track I was running watch for detonation. One thing to watch for is bolts coming loose if you see this back your timing off add fuel or both

The cam looks like a typical blown alcohol SBC cam that I have run maybe a little small on the lift from mine but everything else is in line.  I have run up to 12.5-1 with a blower just have to be careful you have smalller tuning windows but it will work.
My current cam
Duration at .050     283          298
Lobe Lift           .4800        .4600
Separation     113.             OP     CL         OP     CL
Timing Events @.050       32.5     70.5     86     32

Duration @.020       317          340
Gross Valve lift    .720         .690
Rocker Ratio         1.5         1.5
Valve Lash          .018         .029

Degree Intake Lobe to  109

But I am using 1.7 ratio

Cars looking great nice work

Yes, typically you can grind a little off the intake manifold and it will fit just fine

Didnít realize you could still buy a brand new one but reading the description it says still utilize a stock timing cover.

I have taken a ton of HP from my car just by changing the timing from 30 to 24
