Glad I have some pictures to be able to put the plumbing back in order. I've not seen another photos or information on this smog arrangement.

- Here is a trick question for you.. Are harden valve seats required for "today's fuels" to keep form trashing the rest of the motor ? :roll:
Any experience with that ??

I have had a few heads off an have never seen major issues with the bronze intake valve seats. I would not take an engine apart just to do the valve seats. Do them next time the head needs to come off for other things like valve guides and stuff.

Keith,
Thank you for the information! I was hoping that would be the case

As it is, I have the clutch mc and the brake mc to rebuild/ replaced, lines to flush, wheel cyls to deal with. $$

I think that maybe a Datsun 411 intake manifold for an automatic transmission.
