I put a Jaguar xj6 front on my 53. Improvement on every level. If you're going in go all in.
I have a little hobart with the MIG conversion kit. welds all kinds of stuff. Big stick lincoln if I ever need to weld 1/2".
I saw a 500 in a chevette on Power Tour, back in 97, 98 or so. Tubbed and everything. It was glorious.
You can buy a kit to use a dual chamber master in the stock location. I believe ECI sold one as did a guy in the PNW. I made my own from 1/8 steel...
Brake light switch is not anywhere near the mc. Two problems, causation is not correlation and vice versa.
Take this opportunity to really fix...
The parts have to match. If you don't have the correct bore, you are using too much stroke to actuate the pistons in the disc. When I swapped the...
I miss my car. :(
just get some weld on perches for the s10 rear and you're good to go.
the 55-57 rears fit right up. just drill a new hole for the pilot pin to...
I had this setup on mine after I put the jag front end (big calipers).
Hope this helps.
235 with a t5. trust me, i've been there.
I replaced my 15 lb cap with a 1 lb cap to save weight. Picked up 3/10 in the quarter.
4.8L ls turbo motor and overdrive.
you do have the steering rack on the front of the cross member, right? engine is rear sump, right? or is there a rear steer m2 i don't know of?...
sodbuster shot video of hamb drags a few years back and got quite a bit of video.
I ran a ram horn on the passenger side and a 80s 305 truck driver side manifold. Chassis engineering motor mount, home made trans mount. worked...
They say most fuel problems are really ignition. How is your fuel filter?
call speedway, they list a flywheel for use with RAM clutches
I used AAJ on the 55 desoto and ECI on my 53. I was happy with the parts. Just make sure to match up the parts. Bore size matters. stroke matters.
Use the 4 speed. More gears are always better.
Sometimes function follows form. Just use hard bias plies so cornering is never a concern.
RUN the other direction.
buy another hobart, miller or lincoln. You can sell it and recoup your cost later, or you can not weld it very well at all.
I've had plenty of bad modulators. One even allowed fluid to get sucked into the engine, running really rich. Best way is short vacuum rubber with...
I have had a 235 3 speed, 235 t5 5-speed, 305/sag 4 speed and a 350/700r4.
235 t5 was the most fun, got over 20mpg and got lots of compliments.
yeah, that will be under the seat, no access with out jacking it up.
I ran a non-power 1" manual corvette on a home made bracket, access hole in...
bag size, placement, pressure, shocks all will contribute. what worked over here will not perform the same over there. longer arms with bags on...
fit the door to the body, then the fender to the door. If the catch is worn (it always is) you're chasing ghosts.
If you're going to build a 400 with stock parts, except for pistons, this is a winner.
Also, you can use 327 pistons with the 5.94" GM rods in...
