Hooking it up is the easy part. Fused hot wire from ignition circuit to the switch then run a wire from the switch to the terminal on the trans...
Put the tranny back in the caddy today. Chose not to replace the front seal since I couldn’t get the Torus shell out. Al is wel so far with no leaks.
Sounds like good info Bill. Makes perfect sense. Guess I better have a sealant ring available before getting any rougher with it.
I am needing to reseal a hydramatic trans in a 1948 Cadillac. I have the front and rear torus removed but can not get the rear tortus shell out to...
Oops. Senior moment. I stand corrected
When I built the last 302 I could not find pistons with less than 11:1 compression ratio. If you want to run pump gas Id build a 327 so the CR can...
If you'll look inside the hole where the plug goes you will see an oil passage on the side of it. Screw a plug in too far and you will block it.
Always a great show and race. Track was challenging. Traction increased all during the day. Finally hooked up good on the last race I ran and...
It took me 20 years to build a mid engine v-8 corvair. It would sit for years at a time. Finally finished it. Still glad I didn't give up.
I've had my 38 coupe for 42 years now. Started out with the factory straight axle. First thing I did was to put bendix brakes on it. Drove it like...
It looks like you are using the stock front suspension. If so what are you doing about the oil pan? I looked over the whole thread and if its...
DACCO's part number for the switch pitch torque converter is B2. Should still be available, I got a new one about a year ago for the Chevy TH400...
364 is actually 1/4" narrower than the 401/425 but the way these brackets attach it doesnt matter.
[IMG] My buddy makes a good set. Fits 364 and 401. He used one of my 364's to make the first patterns and I have a set on my 401....
I just now found this thread. Man what rock have I been hiding under! As a previous owner in the '70's of a '62 Impala that I replaced the 283...
I like the way you left the center points exposed. It creates some different geometric patterns depending on how the light hits it.
About 5 miles from my house
Sorry I never got to meet him!
31vicky is right. Put a short tail housing from a Chevy and use the Chevy yoke. In the past I have turned down a Chevy yoke to fit in the Buick...
I was searching for shit on the internet and it kept popping up.
Man that's my dream car. Had a 62 Hardtop 283 car in the early 70's that I swapped in a 63 425hp 09. Always liked the bubble tops better but never...
Man that monster turned out nice
You should try to work this in.
To start off, if you're building a gasser you don't want a dropped front axle. Gassers have a nose high stance. 9" rear is a good choice along...
One of my favorite shows. More build less bullshit.
Yes that is the fill plug. Fill it through that hole with 90W gear oil till it runs out.
Dressed it up some since I last posted.
Make sure the secondary air valve and weights were not left out. Lots of people leave them out thinking it will increase the flow.
Sadly it's true. He lived next door to a friend and my friend let me know that he passed on April 30th from an immune deficiency desease.
