New Unused Parts 441 SC-1 SBF, dry sump only

Spring cleaning. Offroad trophy truck project that got shelved. Selling a complete engine seems to get pennies on the dollar. Will finish, sell complete, or anticipate easier to sell as unused parts. Application is high torque, dry sump, race gas engine that will be running just as strong after a 10...

Re: Cartridge water pumps for SBC

Thanks for the reply. Tried Edelbrock several times hoping for a different tech or different answer but no luck. Have a full plate scheduled thru tomorrow evening but will try calling Stewart Tuesday. Jones is a distributor for Edelbrock pumps, will check with them also.

Cartridge water pumps for SBC

Does anyone have any data as to flow potential of Edelbrock's Victor Pro 8827. I've tried several times to get info from Edelbrock with zero results. This is with their own advertising going on about their water pump dyno, equal flow rates per side, etc. Power tour type application with lots of btu'...

Re: Stainless steel head bolts

Make yourself a test fixture where you have access to both ends of your head bolt to measure bolt stretch with a micrometer. You will find ARP's stainless head bolts allow a more proper bolt stretch for proper torque retention as opposed to standard high grade bolts that will tear the threads out of...

Re: Mopar MLS sealant

Old can and new can. Both spray red, REALLY sticky product that to me is identical to red high tack. Not brown or blue, doesn't foam either. Does like to clog the nozzle while spraying.

Mopar MLS sealant

Is Mopar 04318035AA just repackaged Permatex High Tack spray or something different? In searching I've seen it referred to as being Hylomar but it doesn't seem to have the solvent evaporation action that Hylomar shows. Sure looks a lot like High Tack. Thanks

Re: Polylock problems

Make sure your reduced diameter base on your locks aren't powdering away. Comp has their .550 seats instead of .600 and like to cut a big champher on the bottom of the lock leaving close to a knife edge. Doesn't last long. Don't know if your locks are coming loose or you are loosing your lash settin...

Early this year TK built a BBC with the centerfire heads for Terry Nish. The engine is going in some kind of charity project.

Re: Increasing Holley's PVCR, how much?

Mail order machine shop supply companies like ENCO or Rutland, industrial suppliers like Grainger or MSC. Enco and Rutland have pin guage sets (import / China) for sale at give away prices all the time. They would be fine for a part time carb tuner. I would buy only USA drill bits however.
