That's the old style cover like on my '67, the timing pointer is sticking out at the 2 o'clock position facing it. I painted the point on the end white to make it easier to see when timing. I'd get a...

You could get a nipple to screw into the intake and simply get a piece of 5/8" hose to connect from the WP nipple to intake temp. nipple then put the 'T' inbetween, this is how it would be with a...

I took a pic of my C4 and AOD on a scale but of course can't find it. From what I can find the C4 w/o torque conv. should be ~110lbs. add ~38lbs. for TC.
