    Maybe it's due to the jeans length as Fuzz alluded to.

    Harmonic balancer clearance

    I'm a big fan of sway bars and have the biggest ones I can get on almost everything. All I could find for the 61 was a 1", I'm a little embarrassed at having to go so puny but it does clear the balancer on the big block by about 1/8". The Camaro, GTO and Nova all have 1 1/4" bars with quick...

    BBC into 62 Impala Advice needed.

    I bought a set of ceramic shorty headers for the 61 and tried them with the big block. They wouldn't clear he steering shaft so I had to go back to the side exit headers.

With one hand holding tightly onto thin air, I used the other one to pull the cover back enough to open the door and get in to take some pictures. I hope the seams show up...

    Remember my posts about my weekends?

    So I made it home yesterday after being gone 10 days. Now we're leaving this morning to go to Belleville Il. for a swap meet tomorrow. The last couple of years it's been on the second day of deer season which made it a tough choice, go try to buy car parts or kill something. Monday will be back...

    Remember my posts about my weekends?

    Thanks Dave, I'm doing what I like best which is managing people in an automotive related business. I have a couple of big projects coming up; we're taking on the building of GM 4L60E's and should be producing 15 a day by the end of January. We'll start out with 8 stock numbers for 1999- 2014 4...
