    904 front clutch spring question

    I've read/heard that if you're building a hipo/race 904 that the front clutch spring should be replace either with a reverse wound spring or a multiple spring pack. The reason for this is that at higher RPM the stock spring winds up and thus loosens. Question - at what RPM would this become...

    Drag Race Advice Needed

    Welcome to FABO! :welcome: You COULD go with a glide but then you'd need to buy the motor/trans adapter kit. Just an expense that is not needed with a 727. Plus with the 727 you get a lower 1st gear to get a heavier car moving. I'm not a big fan of TCI transmissions, but only from fellow...

    Torque Flight Shift Problem

    I have the same problem with a B&M cable operated shifter. The outer casing melted and the cable goes out the slot/hole when I try to move into any gear other than first. First gear is when the cable is stretched the most and the tension pulls it back into the cable housing. How it melted is...

    Longer rear break hose available?

    Update.... I checked on Raybestos web site and the length of the hose is 14.5". The hose I have is JUST shy of that. Either way it was still too short. However, there is an exhaust/muffler hanger mount about 3" below the mounting point for the hose. I ended up using that point to mount the...

    Longer rear break hose available?

    I replacing the rear brake hose and the one I ordered is too short. I'm working on a 73 Duster with an 8.25 rear axle and when the rear suspension is fully extended the new hose is way to short. I'd say 3-4 inches too short. I've looked at hoses online for other cars and there are different...

    Question for 904 gurus

    Got what I hope is a simple question. My 904 seems to have a too high shift point even at part throttle. I'm using Lokar throttle and kickdown cables and I noticed that when the carb is at idle the kickdown cable does not allow the lever (on the trans) to go far enough to release all the...

    B1 heads?

    I've always been a fan of the original B1 heads. I was wondering if those heads are still available and what other heads would be comparable?

    Speedometer needle replacement

    Thanks Jim. I went with Cudamark's suggestion and epoxied an 18 gauge aluminum wire where it broke off and painted it bright orange. Looks pretty good and you probably wouldn't notice it.

    Hydr lifters, adjustable roller rocker arms, had some noise, tried to adjust preload did i mess up?

    I've been following this thread, very good always from y'all,. I've read that stock cams are designed so that they reduce lifter noise as much as possible. Performance cams designers couldn't care less so those cams are naturally noisier. My question for the op - is it overall...

    Street Radials. Speed ratings

    If your concern is wet traction why are you the least bit concerned about speed rating? Are you planning on going at a high rate of speed in the rain? Speed rating should only be an issue if you plan to race on those same tires AND can get going fast enough where the tire speed rating should...
