A 540 huh. I'm afraid I just can't let you do that. As I'm only running a 496, why don't you building a 327 instead :thumb:

Ok I need to know, what's the difference between aircraft shoulder bolts and shoulder bolts that are grade 5 or 8?
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

imo aircraft bolts have a better shoulder ,also closer tolorances.
and they are stronger than a grade eight bolt. also i'd never use a grade 5 bolt for a suspension bolt.
