    409 starter problem

    If it was skipping teeth you would see damage. There is a one way clutch in the starter drive that could be bad.

    Speedway motors 325 - 7158 SMALL PORT Edelbrock 348/409 intake

    The single four would be a good intake for a driver. Maybe a fuel injection on top. Maybe Edelbrock is not selling small port dual quad intakes to force head sales?

    A Day In The Office

    Tom K. I have an older diesel grasshopper mower with a snowblower attachment. That unit will move a lot of snow if it's less than ten inches deep. For the 4 foot or deeper drifts we get here there is a snowblower with two 4 foot fans. Works ok if you got 180 hp tractor on it.

    What do you ride?

    It was the shops machine. I didn't own it. I couldn't get a price out of my boss to buy it. I think they got afraid of a product liability lawsuit if someone got hurt. It was parked in the warehouse when I quit there in 1984. My past employers were getting a divorce and sold the dealership...
