new control panel

"They are labeled. 0 1. Must have got a deal on switches there. I like switches and gauges. The more I have the more I feel in control. Also need buttons, toggles and some knife switches. Then you can yell, "It's alive!!" upon start up."

"Just replace it because it's likely a Rochester Quadrabo if it's a 4 bbl and a Carter if its a 2 bbl. . I put a Holley on my 78 360 and it worked great."

Got a new and improved blog as they say....

This one's been active since we got the LH2 (an Allegro '87 class A) and I've been working the bugs out of her. Fun, excitement, travel, drama it's all there.

Take a look and laugh and cry at the stuff we go through.

Have a good one and all the best to you....
