Re: Need to run EDM solid lifters?

Says it’s for .842/.875 lifters. Doesn’t say if you can get it for .904 lifters.

Re: W2 mopar

After removing and reinstalling? Why would they need to be removed anyway? I had several come loose. I suspect the previous owner or his builder tried to install liners from the valve side or something. I had 2 on one head and 1 on the other that would come out just flipping the head over on the be...

That looks like a bit of a cluster f&@k situation.

I can’t imagine having those inserts removed is going to improve the odds of them not leaking in the future.
I never has one leak. And I’m not very lucky.

Re: NHRA STOCK valve job

The OP is asking if it is legal in NHRA Stock Eliminator to use other than factory valves seat angles. I think he understands not every valve job works on every head and what it takes to test them. He just wants to know if his reading of the rule book is what is legal. And that is can you use other ...

Re: So the pertronix ignitor 3 cant be static timed?

ClassAct, Tell us how you did it, please. Did you use a ohmmeter? If you are talking about static timing it like a Mag, I don’t know if you can do that with it. What I’m talking about is just getting the distributor in to fire it off. I set the crank at 38-40 degrees BTDC on number one, drop the di...

Re: So the pertronix ignitor 3 cant be static timed?

Reading the pertromix site only the ignitor 1 can be static timed, the 2 and 3 cant. I'd like my fresh flat tappet rebuild to light off straight away, any advice or tips on how to get the timing good enough for the 30 mins at 2500RPM run time? Thanks in advance Adrian I just did a SBC with a III an...

Re: Dominator - can't even get it to idle

2 circuit versus 3 circuit metering...... I see you have a 2 circuit Dominator on a mildly cammed road car. I recall hearing mention of mods to make the older 2 circuit Dominators into 3 circuit metering to help with drivability. That was a long time ago and I cannot recall the details now. But I'm...

What do you guys think of the old Holley Pro Dominator tunnel ram that Jenkins used ?? If you can find one that hasn't been molested.

That is still my favorite and I think best cast TR.

Re: SBC Tunnel Ram

If you select the cam timing based on the TR and spend the money on carbs with someone who knows what they are doing (@MarkWhitener) the TR will out perform everything. What would you do different for cam timing on a TR compared to a good single plane and dominator? Less at .050 and tighter LSA.

Why do the pushrod guys recommend you less if more is better. Thats what i wanna know.
They don’t want you to think they make weak pushrods. You can’t get a pushrod too big. Ever.

Re: How to sleeve a 350 the right way?

Just curious, is there any concern about the crack continuing to get bigger? Do you leave it alone, or do you stop drill each end for insurance? I’ve sleeved blocks with HOLES in them. One was a 390 Ford that lost a wrist pin, gouged the hell out of the bore, failed the piston and shoved the rod ri...

If you bought the tool, then you’d be the shop in your area that could offer that service for $30.

If he would change the boosters for 30 bucks I’d send people to him.
