    Spark Plugs

    I am running a petronix ignition module with a petronix flame thrower coil with I think 1.5 ohm . As far as driving , I drove 35 to about 50 with the last at WOT. Turned it off let it cool , plugs black. as far as checking vacuum, I will check that today. I do have a extra 3662 , and an...

    Spark Plugs

    Thanks to all for your input. I've had good luck with NGK's in the past. The carbs are original carters , 3661 , and2. restored to original. That being said , it's possible the the original jetting for a 409 horsepower engine might be too rich for the 10:1 pistons and milder hydraulic cam. I put...

    Spark Plugs

    What plugs are the best for my mild 62 409 with 10 to 1 pistons , a mild hydraulic cam , and 2 carter four barrels. The carbs have been restored to what I think are factory specs. Seems to run very rich.

    Hurricane fan

    Ok, well I finally got around to putting a new clutch fan in the truck. I noticed the old one was much harder to turn than the new. Figuring I had the problem handled, I installed it . Just about as noisy as the the old one. The way I figure it , there's three options , sell it, put electric...

    Hurricane fan

    I worked for a company in 1988. They bought 2 brand new Astro vans with V-6's. They both had the same fan roar from new.

    Hurricane fan

    This has nothing to do with 409/s. Don't hang up. I have a 1990 Chevy 1500 p/u with a stock 350. Runs great, the problem is the clutch fan. It never seams to shut down. Sounds like hurricane winds. Years ago I had a 88 GMC astro van that sounded the same way. My 96 S-10 does the same thing ...

    Engine # vs car model

    I guess I'll put my 2 cents in. The third digit on the vin plate gives the info you need. Odd number is a six cylinder, even number is a V-8. That being said, having a car that was originally a six might be a blessing. A six was probably owned by an older person and was driven carefully and...

    1962 Quarter Panels

    I agree with Bob on the half panels. They create a looooong seam that will take work to get flat. Don't paint it black:confused

    I have three, all in, driver or resto condition. The originals are way better the re-pops, at least they were when I did my 63. Restoration costs ???
