    Clothes at work

    Same as my "official" work outfit. Jeans and hoodie when it's cold, and shorts and T-shirts when it's warm. My buddy wears coveralls when he works on anything. Thirty seconds on or off and it saves his "good" clothes underneath .

    I'm running the 800 cfm Edlebrock with a big cam in my 408 and we able to get it jetted and running great. Very easy to tune.

    Coolant Recovery on a 72 Demon 340 Questions.

    What are your thoughts on these? I'm always a little leery of buying no name parts off of eBay. I am running stock Morels on a Comp 292 hydraulic roller cam. They are making a little noise (not unbearable) but I am regretting not going solid to begin with.
