      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

I'm going to be doing a factory stock build on my 440 and I wanted to see how the Mopar experts are doing theirs. Some things, like the tan distributor cap, are obvious, but I'm always trying to be as accurate as possible & I'm not sure how to do the pan that goes under the intake manifiold. Am I right in thinking it looks too thick?

Yes. The real valley pan is very thin, and held down on each end by a bar (for lack of a better word), so thin the edges to at least trick the eyes.

IIRC they way the valley pan, engine block, and cylinder heads on the Revell 440 fit together is a bit wonky, and you need to assemble the heads and valley pan at the same time to ensure they all align correctly.
