Installed all new exhaust system with stinger.

Installed RJ intake and exhaust cams and wideband AFR, runs great. Rejetted carbs. More torque.

Installed temperature sender in oil filter manifold and wired to water temperature via a switch for oil temperature indication.

Connected a stainless braided oil line from block to a brass block with sender unit and additional tubing for mechanical oil pressure gauge indication.

Ignition switch: Wired the cathode of a diode to the wire going to starter solenoid to prevent damage to electrical contacts after starter solenoid drops out. This prevents damage to contacts.

Installed LED 3rd Brake light by wiring to brake pressure switch in engine compartment.
