    5 Qts of oil Jakob for the motor. I think about 14 on the tranny but i am not positive.

    EDIT: found two different places that state 10 qts bone dry on the tranny

    Don't forget to fill the torque converter before you put it in. Also turn and make sure it seats/clicks 3 times.

    I have a breather on the rocker cover, but where should the hose go to??
    I see that others run a hose from the breather to a inlet on the base plate of the carb. But I dont have any inlet on the base plate anywhere?
    help me out??

    i dont know if the 78 is the same as an 81 but my spedo cable goes in under the main harness connector and just above the inner fender mount. i can post a pic latter if you would like to see where mine is.
