    Jackson, hope you have recovered from your mishap.
    And just thinking out loud, shouldn't these vintage T/F parts just be something to watch?

  3. I don't think affordable adjustable rockers exist for early Hemi's. Those words don't even fit in a sentence together.

    If any of you run across a 225 head I could sure use one to start carving on. Most went to the scrap yard I’m sure

    I can handle that. There is a lot of great stuff in your neck of the woods I want to see. A kid building an altered, a 60’s model a coupe with a killer lace paint job, and who knows what all you are hiding

    So Jackson, sounds like you ain't going North for the summer.
    If you can get that heap 3 1/2 hours north east of you, we can dag it up there and your happy ass along with it.
    Don't make me come down there. :p

    If you haven’t seen pictures of the model a yet. You will be amazed it’s a beauty. The same guy has a Chevy coupe that does wheelies.

    Well I'm out for the year spun a rod bearing so the hemi is apart and the crank is awaiting a turn in line at the machine shop it's not bad but bad enough to need turned it will clean up at .010 under but there is no where good that can get to it very quick so I have to wait however I have collected up a nice roller cam for it and working on some good rods also have a fresh 6-71 blower ready and a hilborn 4 port waiting so there is a good chance that next year it will have nitro in it

    I did but the reason it spun a bearing is the oil pump took a dump and it lost oil pressure I'm just lucky I was shut off when I was due to the blower drive was slinging oil things happen for a reason
