very niceare those valv covers 4 the 335's?

The box that you found, does it have 2 fuel filler doors for 2 fuel tanks? Had a hard time finding them. Does the different intake help for engine performance vs. stock intake? I'm assuming stock heads? Looks nice - working on a 78 crew right now. Would like to see pics when you get it done.

Wow, that is one serious workhorse you've got there. I'd like to see some pics when you're as you progress.

Thanks for the comments, the bed only had one fuel door, so I cut one off my 74 long and had a friend graft it in, a little putty and paint and voila! I don't know how much difference the intake made, since when the motor was pulled, it was totally stock and a real wheezer! Now though, it's a totally different truck. Yes the heads are stock. Upgraded springs is all.
