Return Spring

Scott..... Bob (CdnL79) & I have always had a laugh about the "White throttle return spring????????? Your shot is Carl Riegger's car, right?? I heard he has since sold it?? Maybe gone thru a couple of hands so far?? Here's another one.

Air Cleaner Off

Seems like all the pics of guys showing thier L79's have the air cleaner in place. It would be nice to see a couple with the air cleaner off, to see the other various L79 details up top.

carb/intake

bogus: did you find a correct carb or is there another holley alternative that is close that I could use? Do you have the right intake (snowflake)?
Any suggestions on a close alternative? I'm thinking about building a L-79 for my car complete with dress-ups. No, I will not spend $700 us for a carb, just something that is close would be great.
Thanks, Floyd.

The bracket is an L79 item and was fabbed by Frank (novacars) copied from his original. I think we saw one on e-bat go for hugh bucks!! Easy to make up!! Still don't know if the "White" spring is correct, I just do it to bug my buddy Bob... (who has a chrome one !!)
