I am running pro 4.11 - 12 bolt gears in a BBC street/drag car that weights 3400lbs @ 10.40 - 128mph for 14yrs without breaking them.

I use a TCI on a glide and it works fine :-P . Used it for one season without any problems. Shifter is also very light weight if that is important.

Mostly Mason Dixon since 75/80 closed. Some at MIR, Maple Grove and South Mtn. If you bring your yoke & joints they only charge $75 to make shaft, balance and assemble unit.

You can go to Martin Truck - Hagerstown, Md and get one made for $125 -$175 in 2 days. I had mine made there 2 yrs ago and it works great. :o D

vega springs

I used BB 69 camaro springs on my 72 vega. Make sure you change the ball joints to V-8 monza. (very easy to do) The lower factory vega joints broke on mine after a good launch. Lucky it was only out 30 ft not 1320 ft or the ride would have been scary!! :shock:

I also had a K&N race oil filter collapse on a bbc. Ruined a final round race with an early shut-off. Now I use only AC Delco also.

The ones on my race car were used on NMCA cars and they sound like regular flows, the street car that had the complete 4" system sounded like bullets or no mufflers at all. The insides are built different.

He says the pins were the originals that were taken off when he fly cut pistons. Can the rods ends stay too big/loose after heating ?

flowmaster mufflers

I ran them on a 69 camaro with 4 inch exhaust out the back. You can set off car alarms in parking lots, knock things off the shelf in a garage and get the cops to tell you to leave the state, but to me thay sound great. Just very-very-very loud outside of the car. Not bad inside with full interior. ...

BBC wrist pins

Hi, I have a question about pressed wrist pins. I had a set of pistons fly cut to clear a bigger cam. The shop that did the work also reinstalled the rods. After about 10 miles of driving the motor started to smoke with bad blow by. I thought that a piston broke so I tore the motor down and found th...
