    Should have them swap out the trash-lok while they're at it. Sell it to some fool that thinks it is worth something.

    I've always been a fan of Marlin 70, Remington 597, and Marlin 70 in that order. Tube magazines are just such a PITA.

    It was early. And I think you meant dirp.

    On another note, I saw a mid-size RWD sedan with camouflage yesterday.

    Can usually find Remington Game Loads for around $5.50/box. I find they reload nice, not as nice as AAs though.

    You're about 70hp short. Something is amiss. I made 372rwhp with a Summit el-cheapo 383 as I called it. Eagle cast crank, Summit's version of a 272H cam, ARP studs on crank and rods, 20 hours on a...

    Nice find. I can't believe it isn't mangled from 50 "farmers" cobbling it together. Modern rubber isn't bad to mount on those wheels.

    Chances are, the seal is leaking because the shaft is pushed into the case more than it used to be and is running on rust. When you remove the...

    You have a 1/2 ton vehicle with a 6.5TD and a 4L80e in it. There is nothing 3/4 ton about it other than it has torsion bars and keys to hold up the engine. It's not even a high GVW vehicle like the...

    Sounds like a universal joint to me.

    But anyway, I'd just buy a whole set of gears on an open or G80 differential, complete with shims, and put it in your case. A little slop never hurt a 200hp...

    I saw something heavily camouflaged with a long hood, a wide body, and a short rear that sounded interesting. It reminded me of a R8 or ZR1 with its complete lack of laboring to get up to speed. It...

    Going by what you said, keep the original DR rods that came with the Quadrajet in the car and put a G hanger on it. A B hanger will probably be too rich.

    That cam is a relatively lopey cam, it's...

    Richard Lee is a pretty cool guy. He's a little more dedicated. He won't make anything that isn't inexpensive and works well. Even if you buy a MEC...

    I think its travel is ~28" to ~46". It's a multiple bypass damper with a lot of volume so it has some pretty weird dynamics (as compare to a ~1.5" diameter 6" travel car damper).
