    I read this thread and it's almost like a time capsule.

    Yay to see it getting closer.

    Re: 1984 Coupe DeVille Engine Swap!

    So, big jump in progress tonight.

    I removed my cruise control servo and bracket, and drilled some holes in the body structure. The Holley fuel regulator bracket was then bolted down, and the regulator itself was bolted in. (Those bottom flathead screws were a PAIN at that angle!)



    After the regulator was fastened to the car, I broke out the plumbing supplies and added the nozzles and adapters to the ends of my factory fuel lines. (They still had the throttle body inverted flares on the end. My adapters screwed right on!)



    It was then off to the parts store for some fuel line and hose clamps. After some cutting, creative positioning, and clamping, I had a complete fuel system, complete with fuel filter! Then I tried to bolt the cruise servo bracket back up, and it wouldn't fit due to the new fuel regulator. Fortunately I still had the drill and a large selection of bits laying around. I moved the bracket slightly lower (just below it's original mounting holes), fired up the drill, and had the bracket bolted back into the car in no time. The cruise servo went right back on and I clocked it slightly different so the vacuum line attached to it didn't interfere with my regulator. It was pretty close to the regulator, so I gently pulled it outward from the regulator (towards the engine) and now I have plenty of space between it and the regulator. (How many times can I say the word "regulator" in one sentence? ) All in all it went much more smoothly than I thought. Here is another view of the results:



    I'm really pleased with how it all came out. Next time I'm over there I'll get the negative battery terminal hooked to something other than the exhaust manifold, plop the battery in, and watch some fuel run through my filter. Just because I now can.
