Re: C-clip eliminators and 30 spline axles

bruce, I'd pull the rear end and replace the housing tube ends with ford or olds bearing housing ends. That way you can replace the c-clip setup and go with stouter aftermarket axles. It's not cheap, but it is good insurance. I can provide you with the design drawings I did when I did that for mine....

Re: Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose

I ran the conventional MSD Blaster 2 cannister coil for quite a while before jumping over the the solid state MSD Blaster SS coil. When using that conventional coil design you have to make sure you don't install it laying down - it needs to be standing up, vertically. I found that I would develop a ...

Re: Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose

What coil are you running, and, what's your comp ratio ? I run my plugs at .030 - pretty tight but then my dynamic compression under boost is pretty ugly.

Re: You and your ride... Post it here get to know everyone...

Yeah, I didn't mention the Chevelle guys. I figured they'd be upset being listed in line *after* the Mopar crowd so I just left them out altogether. You know me, always kind to the less fortunate. 8-) :smt002 :smt003 :thumb:

Re: You and your ride... Post it here get to know everyone...

Charlie, you have to know there is a long running (and humorous) battle between the Blue Oval, Bowtie and Mopar guys here on the forum. Bruce and I, being Camaro owners, are far superior to the Nova guys in the Bowtie group, but all of us Bowtie guys are far superior to the gaggle of Blue Oval guys ...

Re: Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose

OOOOO me LIKEY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What kind of carb do ya need, there Bruce ? All I have (literally all I have) are 2 x 750 boost-referenced holleys that are targeted to go back on this little blower motor when I rebuild it.
