    Who has different year, make, model rear installed into their X frame?

    My 78 Trans Am still has stock 28 spline 10 bolt axles and an Eaton posi 1.5s 60 fts 10.90s @ 124. Although 30 spline are in the future and what I put in the 81 Trans Am when the factory posi was worn out for it's future 455. There is a guy repoping the factory posi friction plates now.

    The newer versions had "button" head screw for better clearance to the timing cover.

    How long will an M22 Muncie hold up to 500hp?

    The Nash racing straight cut gear 5 speed I picked up years ago was used in a Stocker but 4th and 5th were 1:1 so legal and 5th was not used. It was just stronger than other 4 speeds. Now it's 2.80, 2.22, 1.77,1.33, 1.0. Lots of my Pontiac buddies have broken Muncies and ST-10s with a healthy...

    So guys I've always heard HP 409s had two shim head gaskets from the factory to drop CR. My first 64 was a 340 HP and only one. Real or myth?

    Not on the fronts rear Cragar SS 15x8 zero offset 275-60-15s. The fronts will need a 0 offset also as the 1/2" TA wheels thow it too far in. Might get soem spacers just as a trial fit, don't trust spacers to drive myself.

    Converting A/C car to A/C heater delete

    "So when installing after market A/C both those holes are blocked off with delete plates? " I was wondering that too if I decide to go that route.

    Metering rod question.

    I think that is Jon. He is very opinionated about "real" Carter quality vs Edelbrock quality. I think there have been different subtle design changes since Edlebrock/Weber took them over in production why some things do not fit. I can tell you his rebuild kits are VERY complete including new...

    Converting A/C car to A/C heater delete

    Thanks Jim I meant to get pictures of it at the shop yesterday but got distracted. I'll be out Wed. I have a much larger hole and I want to think the area where the round hole is is totally different. Got a nice complete A/C heater box in Houston if some one needs one!

    LED Dash lights

    Some pictures of the completed dash/tach. Since the factory paint had some texture to it I used rustoleum black texture. The Mopar guys like it for getting close to their factory finish. I'm finding it is harder to wipe dust off. Clock has an "A Oct 1963" on it. Cluster has a faint 10(?) 3 1963...

    LED Dash lights

    "I will be changing my other 62’s to LED’s as soon as I determine a good way to reach the sockets under the dashes. " Luckily mine is on the workbench and easier to get to! I hate the access all cars and trucks have to get to the bulbs. I would like to find an oil pressure and maybe voltmeter...
