    Firm feel adjustable a body strut rods

    I would call or E Mail them to check. I would use their bushings if it was me. They are great people and will not lead you wrong. I sold them a Max Wedge car a few years ago and know them personally.

    71 TQ info

    No Sir = those are 1971 340 production carbs. The Competition Series are 850 and 1000 race carbs that are completely different animals. (I have been hoarding one of each).

    71 TQ info

    Many of the 71 carbs were replaced under warranty by 72 carbs by the dealers. This was because of drivability issues! This helps to explain why they are hard to find. I do not recommend them for a daily driver The best performance calibrations were the 9800 followed by 9801/9810/9811 all...

    71 TQ info

    The 71 are totally unique. They are faster on our stockers by 1 to 2 MPH The only carbs that are nearly as fast are the "Super Quad" 9800 carb. The next best are 9801/9810/9811. The reasons are too complicated to go thru hear and only of interest to Stock and Superstock Racers. The all require...

    Inner Axle Housing Seal

    Are not the Green bearings weaker on side load and not as desirable as stock bearings for a street driver? That is what I heard years ago. I run them on the race cars and never had an incident and no seal.

    What are these for ?

    I assume that they are Wheel studs = Perhaps for a different year or brake. The A body wheel Studs that I have ever seen that were lefts were 7/16 NOT 1/2.

    Now that’s a nice find of some parts

    We usually use Aftermarket Caps unless it is a pretty low HP Deal! We have broken several stock caps = No power adders either added!

    Not mine but looks like a good deal for someone close.

    In our Sonic testing the early 360 Blocks are significantly generally thicker walls and less core shift. Look for block with 34xxxxx OR 36xxxxx numbers. I would buy that in a Hot Minute if it was not 2,000 Miles away!

    Speedmaster rockers

    You would need to set them up on the car to know for sure the length is correct. The adjuster positioning is fairly critical. Let me know if you need help measuring as I am in Vegas a couple days a week and would be happy to lend a hand with the measurement.
