Two vent lines remained to be fabricated. The first involved slightly bending a piece of 1-inch (outside diameter) tubing to connect the air-meter adapter to the crankcase vent, which is next to the distributor at the rear of the block. The second item was a 1/4-inch line from the exhaust manifold that provides heated air to the automatic choke.

Once all of the necessary brackets, braces, tubes, etc. were fabricated and the entire system assembled, Ken disassembled all of parts to send them to a plating shop. In the end, 50 pieces had been custom-made for this project, and Ken had scrapped 25 more pieces in the process of getting everything right!
