...Unless you live in wet soggy muddy areas. Went back out to Da Wells last weekend with my new and improved side cover. Went with the Team Honda style triangle holes. Whipped out the dremmel and pop rivit gun and went to it. Fun Project. Wish I had done this sooner. Does make a difference. My Edelbrock is taking it's merry time in getting here but Mrs. Barnum assurred me that I should have it by next week. Seems that there has been a run on Quick Silver Carbs just recently! Can't wait!
