Yes Bruce I would say something ! Dean why don't you send a picture of your bottle mounts to your Division tech director and this way if you have to make a change you can do it ahead of time and avoid any problems when you go to the next race !

Bruce when I tech a car I go by the book as I was told by our tech director and if I have a question I will go to him and his first question is did you look it up in the book ! Last season I flunked a guy in top dragster because his helmet was expired and argued with me because he had raced all year and they told him it was fine ! I also had a woman yell at me and call me an ass hole because her husband lost from me putting him in the wrong lane !

Dean I work part time as a tech inspector for NHRA and from my view point you have done nothing wrong !  I value Roo and Bruces input and they do make a good point about the safety aspect of this ! I plan on re mounting my bottle in a similar manner so I am thinking of a piece of 3/8 tubing in front of the bottle to protect it in case of hitting a foam block or timing beam ! I read both the NHRA and Heritage rules and I can not find it any where so I would have to say it is legal to do ! As a tech inspector I try my best to help a racer out when there is something wrong and help them find a solution !

Try Jones racing products They should be able to help you with what you need or Peterson fluid systems !

I think that what you might gain with the 3 speed you will lose because of the weight overall and the rotating weight of the internal components of both the th 350 and the 904 ! You can get a low gear set for a glide and even get away with a six cylinder carrier !

Because A/F is in the "5's" did not want to take a chance, so I am building it to "FUEL" specs. The major difference is the 1.5" shoulder hoop has to go down to the motor plate
      This was becoming a big problem with Top Dragster cars running in the 5's and NHRA decided to change the minimum to 6.10 with a zero tolerance for any one who goes 5.99 or quicker ! I would assume that A fuel would have to meet TAD specs ?

At your power level you should be 6.90'S or quicker and I would think 190's ! You don't need bead locks till 209 but they are a great safety item ! I wold think a 3.89 gear should be about right ! Just don't know what tire would work for you ! Car looks nice !

Nitrous express will give you a pretty safe tune up to start with just don't guess for your self an what you think it needs ! You can do just as much damage from being way rich as you can from being too lean !
