    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 .

    Blueprint 408 carburetor

    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. As far as the Dana 60, I bought a Strange60 from Cass (Dr. Diff) and it was dropped shipped from Strange. Cass is very helpful so I let him make a couple hundred bucks...

    Lets Talk About Coffee

    After reading this thread, I had to go make coffee and take some measurements. My coffee scoop holds EXACTLY one tablespoon. One scoop per 6oz cup. Whole bean freshly ground by me. Kitchen smells like Starbucks without having to take a second mortgage. Like @memike said, a pinch of salt to...

    What Are You Doing To/With Your Car Today?

    I'm dragging my car two hours south today where it will spend the winter in my buddy's shop. I've got a small list of things that need to be done and I never seem to be able to find the time in the summer to do them.

    Coolant Recovery on a 72 Demon 340 Questions.

    Yeah, I didn't think about different tanks might be plumbed differently than mine. The long tube inside vents to the outside, the short tube stays covered in coolant and sucks back into the radiator.

    Coolant Recovery on a 72 Demon 340 Questions.

    I think you have this backwards. The short pipe is the inlet to the tank and the tall one allows the container to vent if it fills up. At least that's how we hooked mine up.

    Hydraulic roller lifter questions (LA 318)

    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.

    Dash Pad Repair?

    A professional interior repair guy (Dr. Vinyl around here) could fix those cracks but it would cost more than the plastic cap. I've been running a cap for 15 years and haven't had one person comment about it.

    Minion Ring Weber kettle grill

    Cook it on your Weber for up to three hours and then take it off and finish it in your oven or crock pot with a cup of apple juice until it is tender enough to shred. I've never had a complaint.

    Anyone else sick of all the ads popping up all over this site lately?

    NO ads at all for me? But when I look at FABO on my cell phone I get lost in them, so I get what you're saying.

    Factory hydraulic roller lifters RPM

    I’ve been running Morel factory style roller lifters in my 408 for five years now with no problems. It’sa street driven car but sees the north side of 6 grand almost every time out. I think proper springs would be the limiting factor.

    Powermaster Altenator

    I agree with both of you. Also, check your bulkhead connector. Mine was corroded and someone had stuck a sheet metal screw in it to make a better connection! I ended up replacing the engine and front wiring harnesses. It was money well spent.

    Prostate Remedies: Are They Real or a Scam?

    As a prostate cancer survivor, I would recommend getting a doctor you can trust. I had a STRONG family history of prostate cancer, so they were watching me like a hawk. PSA test every year. One year it was slightly elevated, the next even higher. A biopsy was performed (ouch) and a form of...

    Thanks guys. Someone had suggested that I cover the whole piece in masking tape and then cut the areas that I want painted black with an Exacto knife. What do you think?

    Quality masking tape recommendations needed

    Don't want to hijack but since we are talking tape, I'm going to be painting this soon and need to tape off the areas that aren't black. Any recommendations for tape or technique? Thanks!

    Turn That Crap Down!!!

    No one touches a customer's radio. These are all loaner vehicles or used cars that are being reconditioned for resale. The GM had to get involved when a used car started blasting NSFW hip hop on a test drive.

    Riding lawn mowers

    I agree with @abodyjoe above. I bought my Deere at the farm implement store outside of town, twenty years ago this weekend. All I've done is regular service and replaced the original battery after ELEVEN years.

    Turn That Crap Down!!!
