The heads look great now. The trick answer is what in the world are those hard pieces that ended up in the intakes?

Looking good. Nice to get the parts together as GM intended! It is exciting to see it come together.

Note: I save the caps off of shop aerosol cans. They make perfect plugs for the carb holes. They seat well and won't fall out like paper. Just thought of this as I looked at the engine picture.

I always liked how a Corvair engine looks. It's a shame it has to hide under all of the sheet metal.
