Re: Radius rods and open drive shaft

Id weld in the yoke from a front wishbone and build a cross member to mount the ball pivot
With a low HP setup like you plan its not likely to have any issues … people are running V8 cars this way

Re: Weiand High Rise Intake Flathead

Asking price and selling price are two different things … they sell in the 5 and 6 hundred range
A polished one could bring more but the market gets smaller.

All you should need to do is
Remove starter

You need to PM Ryan asap
So he can step in and help you get your part or cash back and also so the guy no longer can sell here.

Get a 33 to 36 axle … the 42 to 8 is way to wide and the wishbone that fits it won’t fit your car.
