Re: Hotrod Capitol?

I guess this makes me a biting fish!! Thanks Randy Not only was it nasty...it was 7 years late!! Hahaha And...

Re: Singing engine

HF II desperately wanted to impress his Italian wife, Cristina Ford. He figured winning an international race like LeMans would do it. No expense was spared as evident in the above video. She divorced him shortly after his infamous DUI. "Never complain, never explain". (HF II quote) Thanks Randy htt...

Re: Is there a plumber in the house?

The late 1980's Chrysler Turbo 2.2/2.5's used a unique vacuum ejector.

This made vacuum from boost for the vacuum operated cruise control.

Thanks

Interesting
In my forced induction engine, I assume that only the PVC line is in vacuum.

What about using Engine vacuum to fill the tanks??

Re: Are vented rear discs 'worth it' on a FWD track car?

Sounds like Ed Peters?? Thanks Randy Many years ago, I had a conversation with an OME engineer who was pissed he had to add rear disc brakes just to satisfy marketing. He said, "We've tested it and on a stock FWD under racing conditions, the rear brakes are just along for the ride. The weight transf...

Re: Later 300 engine in a 61-65 Econoline Pickup

Way back in the late 1960's I had a 1965/66 van with a 240 in it. 240 mounts etc should make a 300 a bolt in with donor parts?? As mentioned, the 250 was a nice Engine and should drop in? I replaced a tired 144/170 with a 250 in a 1960 Frontenac way back. The 250 was a bullet in comparison!! Thanks ...

Re: Well they finally did it

Very sad day for car enthusiasts in the EU.

Around here creations like this are still allowed!

Not mine, but these can be legally registered and insured.

Re: Stock and hopped Z-28 engines here..

Whats real about the question you ask?? You claimed your built 302 Z28 was a dog, your words. You stated an automatic TA with A/C and full of girls beat you. Next logical question how many girls were in the 5.0 Mustang How did you dog run against a 5.0, with and without the girls? Thanks Randy https...
