Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

The key word here is "perhaps". It has been my experience that, unless experienced with flatheads, most of these guys do the great majority of their work on modern engines with thin wall castings,...

Re: 266 versus 276 CI?

I'll take all of the free horsepower I can get. Seeing that .125" pistons are usually the same price as .030", it's an extra free 16 ci or 6% increase, which I would think would be noticeable.

As...

Re: Holy Crap! Kindergarten kids stamped my block. What do I have here?

The link works fine and is a lot more defined. Thank you.

That being said, I cannot offer any help. Sorry.:(

Re: Cut off HAMB again????

Re: Hagerty insurance ?

I'd be careful with Condon & Skelly right now. I have had them for over 30 years, and my last communication with them is that they are no longer associated with "Ironshore Indemnity Inc.". Included...

Re: Help decipher GM distributor vacuum canister numbers

Being a Corvette owner, I frequent The Corvette Forum, specifically the "C2" section. I remember this being covered in detail there. I took a quick look, but couldn't find it. They do allow guests...

They do interchange year to year, but not side to side.

Re: vacuum wipers

The wipers on my '51 weren't completely dead, but didn't work very well. I "refurbished" them by filling a squirt bottle with brake fluid, inserting it into the vacuum line, and operating the wiper...

Re: BorgWarner Overdrive Questions

Just the overdrive or a complete transmission with the overdrive included? What is your application for it? "Expensive" (in the US at least) makes this sound like not the best deal. We need more...

Re: shipping frustration

This (regular packages doing better than "Priority Mail") seems counter-intuitive to me. I can tell you that over that last 6 months, none of the "Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Boxes" I have sent (8...

Re: using the stock mechanical fuel pump with electric

I agree with this. Maintenance over "band-aids" every time. I am old enough to remember when the last generation of these cars were new. Nobody ever did this sort of thing because it was unnecessary....

Re: shipping frustration

I have heard that "Priority Mail" packages are moving quite well, but regular "First Class" stuff suffers from the overload problem.

Re: Crab distributor or ???

Have you tested it when it's hot? Or over a period of time? The ability of the condenser to do it's job can vary greatly with both of these conditions.

Re: Crab distributor or ???

Points burning indicate a condenser that is way out of spec.

Re: headers vs duals

After having them installed for over 30 years, I still love my Fenton cast iron headers. They look and sound great! Anyone who puts power over style shouldn't run a flathead anyway.:D

Re: Prony Brake Ideas

I don't know because I am down in the Keys, which is way off the beaten track.

I will "Google" it, now that you mention it.
