Wasn't trying to correct you. Just adding a bit of info. AND, FYI I have been following this project, not avoiding it. I haven't posted to it, and it might not say it on whose following but I have been just not logged in much these days, but I have been keeping an eye on it. ( I was even going to pick YOUR brain) I did help you out some on your last project in case you forgot. As far as the "also for some reason" I meant it as a If I recall correctly. You mentioned about them being pickup and that this was wrong. You were correct, but I am pretty sure that I have seen that mod somewhere. I suppose next time I'll just leave the usual "looks good" and carry on without trying to help. Carry on... Paul
The original fuel blocks were nothing more than thick wall factory castings. Wasn't until the KB stage blocks came out that they went to double cross bolts. Also, for some reason I want to say I have actually seen hollow cross bolts for extra oiling to the crank. (Sox and Martin book maybe?)Those are not pick ups. The pick up is actually the very rear corner of the pan. (back then anyway.) the pump uses the stock passages after that. Just bypasses the small diameter pickup hole.
