Re: Wilwood front disc kit 140-14190

The cheapest way to go is with the speedway kit, unfortunately ths system is heaver than the stock brake drum and will cause handling problems. However for a passenger car/truck, work very well.

Use an AF meter to get the best AF. Plug reading doesn't work anymore.

Re: Melting M19 oil pump

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

To be honest, I can't remember using a stock cam. I did use an EAB cam in the 289, but never checked it. I did however use the original alum timing gear. Runs great so far.
