Is it the Lisbon place?
Same for me, didn't run into anyone either. I had a vintage hamb shirt on too.
I dont know the answer, ive never heard that you use 2 fronts or 2 rears. Im not saying you are wrong though. Do you have the bumpers yet? If...
The above engine I posted pics of did not come apart. A good honing on the cyls and a fresh head gasket and it runs smooth and strong.
Exactly. I am a huge advocate of using coke now that I did it with my own engine and it worked (and worked well). My engine was in much worse...
I will vouch for this, as ridiculous as it sounds. I had a motor that I soaked in wd40 for weeks, did nothing. ATF/acetone for weeks, did...
Ive got one like that from harbor freight. Ive only used it to break beads, but it works well for that.
Good to hear, Chef! Thanks for the update, and thanks for everything you've done!
Last time I did that I got like 3 feet of air.
15" I believe, I can check my 57 tomorrow if you dont have an answer by then. A chevy is 14" IIRC.
the bale spike is a good idea, I would check out a farm supply store (or an old tractor junkyard for that special pre-1964 version). If you need...
Thats a beautiful 57! 4dr HT is probably my favorite 57 in Belair trim.
These havent moved in years. They are in a grove of trees that used to be a farmyard.
I've gotten crappy milage with every TBI (thru 1995) pickup ive had/driven.
$220 is a good deal if it turns out to actually be a merc, but you pulled the motor and afterward tried to establish a price?
Tinman, is stainless steel sheetmetal any tougher to metal-finish than regular sheetmetal? Ive seen your work and I know you are capable of...

Suzanne Vega is my cousin.
oh, makes more sense now :D
Id like to see a pic of that 45 white 6X6, have you posted one before?
That stepside pickup?
Theres no way that thing weighs 25k. And you can lower the registered GVW rating on a vehicle, I lowered it on my...
"CM" on the heads shows merc, I believe. So I would say it would probably be the same on the crank...
Thanks for the info!
Wow, exactly. Dont worry about it, city boys love voicing their opinion on stuff they know nothing about. All they know is that there are crop...
This isnt correct. 1987-95 (TBI) heads are the 4 centerbolt style. I dont recall if Vortec heads (started in the 96 model year) are 2 bolt, but...
So, how did this end?
Great post, I like the 57 chevy insert piece.
Im not even half done with the pics, but I had to come back to thank you. Thanks
Great car! Thanks for posting
