I received the Holley 350 CFM 2 barrel carb and manifold adaptor. When I purchased these from Summitt Racing they stated clearly that the adaptor might not fit. They where right, however, careful drilling and tapping of the manifold and a couple of new holes in the adaptor and it was fine. I installed the carb and without touching a thing it started with no choke and idled at 600 rpm. Under load I experienced some surging but this was cured by redoing the timing. Mixture setup is very sim...

In summary we installed a 92 Camaro 3.1 V6 and NWC T5 from an 84 Camaro. I purchased the installation kit from CCE, HTOB from BMC and speedo cable from the T5 to the OEM MGB speedo from D&D Fabrication.

The HTOB arrived this week and I got it installed fine. Put the engine transmission in yesterday and had interference between the passenger foot well on the corner just below the charcoal filter shelf and the bolt on the right head.

I will work on the miscellaneous connections this week, fuel, electrics, cooling etc. Should be running by Friday, I hope.
