Marc, keeping the original set-up with the Z-S at this point. Never really had
an issues with it, although when I changed the head gasket
a few years ago, I did have a leak from the bottom of the carb that dripped
onto the cat! Fortunately, I caught it before I did much
driving, and it just needed a new o-ring on the bottom of the float chamber.
This B is my 'beater' that I drive while I spend most of my money on the '65

Are you trying to keep the ZS carb set up or original appearance?
Otherwise why not convert to old style exhaust manifold? I took the cat
off my LE and switched to old style because it made me really nervous
being right there... Lot of car-B-Que stories....
