Speaking of bling..anyone know the proper orientation of the valve cover stickers?

2f goes on front pretty sure .
But the sticker for "improved combustion system"
Dont know which way the words face.

Not real important but would like to get it right before clear

Waiting on parts..so spent a bit of time putting some other things together.
Amazing how long some of this minutia takes.
The carb fan was in bad shape. I took it apart and powder coated it with all the rest of the stuff.

Shane aatlas1x had the new sticker.

Good thing about this kind of stuff is I can do this while watching tv which somewhat appeases the wife.

Elbow grease some new hardware and new sticker equals cool

My fan was inoperable when I got the my '76 back in 1982 so I tossed it. Stupid move but I didn't know better back then.

Found one possible issue staring at 1976 microfiche (1/75? to 9/77 the nipple for the oil cooler is out the back of the t-stat). I don't know what the hose looks like that could make that tight bend.

That upper pipe shows up somewhere between 1/76 to 8/76 for the oil cooler even though the oil cooler itself was 1/76 to 8/92
