i am from Mercer PA but am currently in del rio, TX and i will be living in Portsmouth NH by Dec. i am a pilot and will be flying the kc135 up there. and actually i have a 351W and C6 (out of 79 van) in it but i still have the 7 3/4" rearend. looking to put a 9" ford in before i really drive it. i just updated the brakes (disc in the front, dual reservoir power brakes, and all new stainless brake lines). now working on modern 18 circuit wiring harness. once i get that done its on to the engine. also quick question...my uncle has a boss 351...better starting point for the extra money?

Hi, just read your intro post. Welcome to the HAMB. Must be going to Pease, eh? My son-in-law is E8, one of the flightline supervisors there. If you need louvers in your F-100 hood, we are ready to do it. Press is in Exeter, not too far from Pease.
