Re: Things that make me worry and scratch my head!

I recently read a post on another forum discussing the quality of Wal-Mart and Costco brand engine oil. One posted said he was disappointed with their oils since the bottles don't have a clear stripe on the sides that show how much is left in the bottle. His car uses 4.5 quarts of oil and with those...

Re: Late 1960s Chevrolet crate engines?

No... Remove the head bolts and the intake bolts on the side you are working on...just loosen the dizzy a bit. Then use a prybar with a nice thin face and wedge it between the head and block. Wiggle it enough to get the head off the locating pins and slide the down and away from the head. Clean up t...

Re: Late 1960s Chevrolet crate engines?

Back in '67 I was the new kid on the lube rack at Humphrey Chevrolet in Milwaukee. I did plenty of warranty work after I earned the service managers confidence. I learned how to replace a small block head gasket without removing the head. My Dad's 396 Chevelle spun a rod bearing and we installed a w...

We had a few guys running modifieds that had engine deals with Chevy dealers. Free longblock 365/327 each racing season in exchange for advertising on the car. Made a great race engine.

Re: Holley 850...Made in China?

Here's my confession for today... Normally I would know better but I bought a cheap ($48.00) 2" carb spacer from FuManChu Racing Parts. Got delivered on time... Nice fit and finish. So I ordered some carb studs from McMaster & Carr. Delivered on time...nice finish. I attempt to screw them into the ...

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner for small parts

I’d get a bit bigger than you need... I bought mine for carb work but it is just a tad small at 6 litres.

I bought mine on Amazon. All the Chinese ones appear to be from the same source. Mine was $55.00 and it has been trouble free.
