Waaaay down below you were asking about a gas jet for a propane torch. Years ago I built one very similar to what you're building and it works great. I used 1/4" pipe as it was available at the time. I screwed a collar on the end and then screwed the gas jet into the collar.

Make the jet by getting a 1/4"NPT grease zert, grind off the back of the threaded end, and take out the spring and steel ball. Just screw it into the pipe collar, weld the "flame hood" onto the pipe, and you're all set.

Hey thanks George TX. That is exactly what I have plenty of. Toolman,,Did you see where Steve 12345 has everything done by the dealer or garage? When the guy gets the tranny fixed let him post the bill here,You used to could overhaul your own transmisions . But these may be computer controlled..FUN!!

I built one like this,I built it to be easy to work on,Simple and inexpensive parts. You have full control if you build your own car.Mine started out as a Triumph TR 4 A.

Small block Chevys. Just FYI. Go get the price of a 1974 Chevy pickup altenator.Then ask the price of a new foreign type car.Like a Honda.Try the same with the starter. A 64 chevy fuel pump. A head for a 65 Chevy. Try putting those on the new Honda compared to doing the same to that T bucket.
