When I installed the HEI ignition system, I had to delete the resistor wire. I did not realize i was disconnecting the I terminal on the voltage regulator as well. Today I corrected that wiring error so now the alternator is charging properly. I also installed a new water pump today.

Oh! I've been neglecting updates. Here's a before and after. The first is from when I installed the new carb.



Here's where I am today...

Quite a difference. Where did you locate the chrome master cylinder/booster?

I located a distributor for MBM brakes here in Ga. I cannot remember who now but Google MBM brake boosters. They are a local manufacturer.

Thank you. They are a custom job built by an eBay seller. Perfect fit.
