    Lead body work

    There are a couple of Gene Winfield leading instructional videos on YouTube. You would be hard pressed to find someone with more leading experience than him.

    Car transport

    Look for someone local. There are small time one man show type guys with truck and trailer who are quite reasonable. Talk to guys that do body work and restorations , smaller shops with low budgets. These guys are out there, of course make sure they are insured.

    Recommendations for outdoor storage shed

    I bought this “shed in a box”, 6x6 on sale 1/2 price for $75 and built a 2x6 floor/base from distressed/dunnage lumber I bought at fleet farm for $1.00 a stick. I sprayed it with an old can of tomsens water seal I had from a previous project. The shed is metal frame covered with a vinyl cover. I...

    340 Stroker: experiences with parts

    I would chose scat over eagle. Buy the best heads you can afford. Iron or aluminum. By the time you put hardened seats in and port the j heads, your already there with the aftermarket. Headers definitely, but save the iron manifolds, they are pricey and only going to go up. Sell the j heads to a...

    Stock '69 318, t-quad vs q-jet vs holley vs edelbrock?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the TQ. I have a collection of them. I buy them up price permitting. Just saying, hard to find parts. If you have the time and will, start your hunt. Yes, I believe the TQ is the performance leader for a street car and street/ strip car. All out race car? Holley unless...

    Cryo treating blocks?

    I believe what it does is refine the grain structure of the metal and it also aligns the polarity thus strenthening the part. This would be beneficial to a casting.

    Cryo treating blocks?

    I would assume this process is best used for engine components that run on the ragged edge. Components in top fuel racing are still changed between rounds and I assume this is a standard treatment in those engines. Passenger car blocks still are not race blocks. Everything fails at some point. I...

    Doors won't open

    Use a flat blade to get between the glass and wiskers to grab the lock rod on the passenger door. Your local police department will have one. They may even get it open if your nice to them. They did this on a regular basis years back so they have experience.

    SBM Dual Plane Intake vs Single Plane Intake Dyno Results on a Rowdy 408" Stroker

    So I’m thinking with 3:23 gears or less you would go with the dual plane. If deeper gears like 3:91 or deeper,the single plane as your tack’d up at low speed already. I’m also thinking that with a rpm engine that revs like a chainsaw you go with the single plane cause your there so quick. If...

Other options were rear window defogger, tinted windows and dealer installed air conditioning. Am/fm radio was also...
