Re: For US '40 Coupe Folks....Some Serious "Shooby-Dooby Shu Bop"

Enjoyable...but at the end it has a Finish banner showing. Kind of a weird race track that only has a start and end to it unless it's the downhill version of Pikes Peak!

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

Different oil pans. I have one truck and one regular (?) car pan. The reinforcement had me confused. Why was that required?

I have the LZ cluster gears in great shape. Second may just need a little...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

I knew about "the same block for all!" company edict which makes sense except for the different block identification marks. Now that oil pump doesn't look familiar. If I use the Merc oil pan is it...

Re: PCV VALVE SYSTEM for 8BA with Early Intake Manifold

I'm just getting into a C8BA using the newer Fenton intake. However, I don't like the looks of the road draft tube so is there a way to hook up a PCV valve and not use the road draft tube?
