    That looks superb.

    Mind me asking what paint code you are using for the blue? Looks a pretty good match to "guardsman"

    Also, FE in a Cobra makes the rear ports stupid tight as you know.

    You’re going to have to make something custom anyway. Why not build it as a detachable towbar. Best of both worlds?

    Re running on, you may be able to solve that in 2 mins with a screwdriver. Check your idle speed. Even a couple of hundred RPM's up can cause it to run on. You need it around 700-750.

    That's a very good price for a 1965 sideoiler block! That code is bang on for use in a 65 427 Cobra so it won't hang around long.
