Continued working with this. I fixed my f... I mean I fixed my ''oops'' with that dipstick. So I took it off and made a new one, but that comes to the engine. I made it from lead. I added that wire coming from carburetor and it ends somewhere under that fuel injection system... I have to build a new exhaust pipes from scratch because Black Widows didn't have mufflers as in the Revell ones... I they also end before rear tires so it's stupid to do very big modifications to these what are in the box. I can make new ones on the same time... But here are the pics.
Let me know, what you think.
OK, a few things. Don't get me wrong you are doing an awesome job. If you want more accuracy that hole in the lower block near the oil pan rail (well represents a hole anyhow) is where the dipstick tube goes.
Here is a few more pics of the 283 hp 283 you are building.
Not sure if the tube you saw is like the second pic. This is what they call a road tube.
Notice the oil filler on the top of the intake manifold on the schematic drawing and the others.
The road tube was the old school PCV valve more or less. Gave ventilation to the engine.
Also on the third one, the website I got this pic from said all 57's equipped with the 283 hp 283 fuellie had this air intake on the radiator. Just my 2 cents and help.
