    My Valve Spring Compressor - Heads On/In Car

    No issues, even extended way out, it worked fine with the Lunati double springs, 336 lbs open, 402 lbs/in. No need for a brace.

    My Valve Spring Compressor - Heads On/In Car

    Thanks guys! I use an old plug wire with the distributor boot cut off, coiled in the cylinder. The spark plug boot eliminates worrying about it dropping in, it's easy to clean each time, and no worries about air pressure failing. It just takes some practice on where to set the cylinder before...

    REMFLEX GASKETS BLOW OUT

    Three sets later, I'm done with Remflex. I can think of very few other products people rave about, that suck so bad! Every set leaked, and tore up coming off. Taylor Cable Seal 4 Good are all I'll use anymore. They sealed better on my run stand without nuts the end studs, than the Remflex ever...

    My Valve Spring Compressor - Heads On/In Car

    I ended up needing to install fresh valve springs in my truck. All I had was a cheapy screw type compressor, with the fingers that grab the springs. They are not too horrible, for what they cost, but are completely useless when it comes to INSTALLING double springs. That left me looking for a...

    Looking for info on a Manley big block cam 17383

    It's a fresh build for a drag car, that's been sitting 25-30 years. Yeah, I figured 107 might be the LSA. Nick did all the engine work for Ed Hamburger back in the day. I'm sure he used it for a reason. I was just hoping to find specs, or maybe even a cam card while I'm waiting to hear back from...

    Looking for info on a Manley big block cam 17383

    Thank you! Where did you find the info? From the little mention I did find on Moparts, somebody said they were "cheater cams".

    Looking for info on a Manley big block cam 17383

    Looking for specs on this old Manley cam out of a 440. Only markings I can find are shown. "Manley" and "17383" on the snout, and it looks like "107" on the shaft, a few paint bands and dabs. I believe it is a "Thunderstick" , but am coming up dry searching the internet, including Manley's...

    [WANTED] Need a single solid motor mount for SB A-Body

    Is that just sealer on the top bolt threads? Not a Moroso mount, but I would think that would work fine.

    [WANTED] Need a single solid motor mount for SB A-Body

    I know a lot of people buy a set, and only use one, so I thought I'd ask if anyone has one laying around. Thing is, I need it pretty quick, though. Thanks!

    Hamburger/Batchelder time machine

    As old as it is, this thread just popped up in my alerts. Such a cool car! In a strange twist of fate, I now own a 440 built by Nick Tosi. When I was talking to Nick about it, he mentioned he did a lot of engine stuff for Ed Hamburger.

    Oil gallery plug size?

    Can somebody tell me the correct size or part number for the plug that goes inbetween the oil filter passages under the #5 cap? Apparently I threw the old one out when I tore this engine down, or just can't find it amongst all my junk. Thanks!

    [SOLD] Modified Edelbrock MAGNUM RPM 7577

    This is an RPM Air Gap intake that TXDart (Martin) either modified, had modified, or bought before he passed away a little over a year ago. It has been modified to run a Thermoquad, or other spreadbore carb. It's very well done, somebody put a lot of work into this unique piece! I think he...

    b motor into a body

    Yeah. Local roundy round guy had a couple stashed away. Trying to get the second one. He said he had 8 to begin with. His buddy bought a truckload when MP was liquidating the big block stuff. I bought a 440 block at a swap meet, and he approached me while I was loading it and asked if I wanted...

    b motor into a body

    Thanks guys. Yeah Rusty, I know how that goes. I already have a set of the Hedmans in my parts stash. I have a 400, toying with the idea of dropping it in my Duster down the road a bit. My small block is out for an overhaul. Might have to just buy the mounts and mock it up. Are the Transdapt...
