  This is the position for the Oxygen sensor. Just below the collector. This is on the passenger side where the 2 pipes go in to the Cat.
Got these off Ebay. Not sure where I'll put them yet. I want to get it functional first.
$15.00 Shipping & Trouble.
Thanks Chris!
These are from Chris Lindh. 2 ECM's, from Astro Van's I believe, and a couple new fuel filters.

The plate after shaping, drilling holes, and tapping the threads for the TBI unit.  
This is a wooden spacer I put under the AFB to keep the heat from boiling gas over, when it was hot. I think I will keep it, and drill out spaces for the bolts, as well as opening it up where marked to get a smoother transition to the manifold. The butterflies in the TBI will clear, but I want to clean it up.
This is the TBI unit bolted to the plate, rear view.  
This is the TBI unit bolted to the plate, front view.  
You will notice that I polished the openings on this. (Jeweler's force of habit)
