The Jalopy Journal
Thanks Jim. Always appreciate your work.
Find a retired machinist that likes to tinker at home and have him make you a pair. That would work in my neighbor hood. Don't know about yours....
Put on an electric fuel pump and your troubles are over.
Another care where I would be checking for a good ground.
Thanks Chuck. That's exactly the shop and machinist that I was trying to remember.
The "go to" machine shop in California in the sixties was?
Seemed like it was a short name and they did far better machine work than most machine...
Glad your here Pat. Lots of guys here really know their stuff and some are full of horse hockey.
Sort it out and you are in great shape.
An inspiration to young women and old men as well.
She will be missed.
I think it would be interesting to see what things look like when using a spin balancer on that wheel. I'm talking about the kind that spins the...
Thanks for your pictures and thoughts.
I've seen the salt and would love to race on it.
i'm thinking the same thing that slowmotion and sedantudor are. how does it work when you plug the vacuum advance?
I'm guessing that they didn't clear at all.
Hope all is going well for you and your family and you will exhibit your stories here. Tech was different in the Midwest as well. I...
Thanks for the how-to.
Carried over from my motorcycle days, a skull face mask and a wild rag for my old bald head. Works great. Don't forget you've got it on and...
I'd also look the cap over closely while I had it apart.
Very nice. I'd sure like to see the build pictures.
Just as a bit of caution, 5 out of the last 6 that I checked were cracked.
Hoppes is still available at almost any gun shop but I don't think that is the same stuff that was available years ago. The aroma is addictive.
truck64 is correct. there are all kinds of solvents. dmso is an industrial solvent that will take what's on your skin to your internal parts....
Mineral spirits are the solvent you get at my dealer. $5.00/gal the last I bought.
SBCs are like Harleys. They don't leak, they mark their spot. I've had some that didn't leak but it's probably not that common. I'd probably...
I can vouch that it works ok up to 130 mph on the drag strip.
I build my own. That's what makes it mine.
P&B's signature line is correct.
The X came after the 461. Mainly on vette heads. I'm against 2.02 intakes on a 283 contrary to the now popular belief on the HAMB that they will...
During the early days at MOKAN [62-67} the blown gassers ran hydros and the rest ran 4 speeds. The only powerglide that I remember was in Action...
Not trying to be a horse's ass but the question is probably more appropriate on an S10 site.
The HAMB drags and Bonneville do it for me.
Thirty opinions make it hard to pick the right one. It is a sure thing that knowing where you are makes it much easier to get where you need to...
All the above plus heat, penetrating oil and a Big Hammer.
