My pictures were just of the rebuild of the carbs and the install of the
Miata leather seats. Sorry.
Oh, wait, I drove the B today, and I have a camera here. Stay tuned...
I thought of a couple of things.
You'll need to plug the water outlet (inlet, I'm not sure) in the
head that goes to the water choke. Use the water tube from the '74 for
the return path of the heater core to the radiator hose return.
