The Horse has bolted , looking at the photo did you try right angle plug leads to the cap before the mods.
All your work is a credit to you.

No Doc I didn't bother. As you can see below that wouldn't have done it either. The manifold couldn't bolt up and is sitting a 1/4" higher than it should.

Good Work Craig, looks like its coming together. Although you could have polished up the rocker cover a bit :lol:

A bit more testing with mixtures and water pressures before starting on some preservation work on the deck. Pretty happy with it so far.

I hope so! So long as I don't screw it up. This is all new territory for me.
