    Exactly, I was thinking of gasket matching everything and calling it done.

      LOL on the intake I would taper it back about 1" to smooth out the transition. the heads could probably use some gasket matching too!

        If it sat that long dry, the gas tank is probably a real rusty mess. When I got my Magnum it had sat indoors for three or four years and the gas evaporated. I put a new fuel pump, filter, carb and intake on it, filled it up, and it ran good initially. Drove it 600 miles from Iowa to Michigan. A few weeks later it started staving for gas. The fuel filter was completely plugged. The tank and lines were all full of rust.

        I was able to save the lines, but had to have the tank sandblasted and coated in plastic (couldn't find a new one)

          She sat for 16 years. We had it up and going bypassing the tank but unfortunately the car was stolen while we were on vacation a couple weeks ago. Never even got a chance to clean out the tank!
