Went with a Friend & hook up with a few others & made made a day out of it today.
I spent most of my day with Alkydigger's website, my mock-up motor and a big box of Hilborn and Enderle parts, making a final decision about how I want to mount and drive the fuel pump, and sorting out the parts list to make it all happen! :) I am pretty sure now I will go with the Enderle lollipop and pulleys. Its a little shorter than the Hilborn stuff and a little more compact. Gotta order a new drive spud and bearing for the lollipop, and I will order my new nozzles at the same time. :) 8)
Wanted: Used +030 TRW L2249 or Speed Pro 7061P 12.5/1 289/302 ford pistons

^^^ That’s what’s left of the original Kookie T correct? I’ve heard it’s being restored currently...

What are the plans for the 'extra stuff' like the seats, headers, front disc brakes, blowers, etc?  The seats would look cool in a 60's style coupe...

Those disc brake calipers are Halibrand and I think they might be desirable for an Indy 500 roadster restoration.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

Larry,
 I've seen a few famous cars get restored there & not 1 of them sold the parts that someone added later on.They save those to go with the history of it.

Thanks for the explanation Beppie, I never considered that as a possibility.

I could bring myself to sell those. That’s one part of the history of that car I could forget. No offense of course.
