I have a 63 with a 69 427 engine in it. There are new laws up here now(MTO) and although the car is 63, they can go by the year of the engine for emisions
I know little of emission equipment , but doing some Google searches it looks like a pcv and perhaps an AIR pump is required...
I recently started up my car and tried it with open headers and then with mufflers on
My headers go out the sides and I have mufflers which are DNA's. The car is loud....way too loud. The mufflers took the sharp crack off from the headers, but it is deafening inside the car
I bought some...
I am assembling the doors on my car. I have started to do this about ten times over the past couple of yrs, either put it off or found I needed another pc for the assembly
I had to buy everything and never took the doors apart. I have two(sets) rear window tracts. (will be a large...
I have an 18 circuit Painless harness to put in the car( just had an overhead panel on the cage before) and I am trying to install it neatly
I was hoping to put it behind the glove compt, but it basically is going to be level with the glove compt door in order to fit(wiper arms in the...
Unfortunately, this is as far as I am going with the car this year. Work has really gone downhill and I need to spend a bit more money to get ready to take it for a pass
I decided a few weeks ago, just to break in the cam and put together what I can with the parts I have(which is...
I have not posted a pic in so long, I hope this works
I put together my old 427 from my drag car(freshened up) and set it in late last night. I painted it GM corporate blue, already have too much black and orange will be too much with a red oil pan and red scattershield
I am getting...
This is a pic of a friend of mines car from last sat at Cayuga. This was the season opener for the OSCA Ontario Street Car Association and Mike runs in a class called Pro Comp which is on an 8.50 index
His can can run faster and those are the real Hillborn injectors on this
Has anyone had their headers ceramic coated to reduce underhood temps?
Any before and after comparisons?
Has anyone used header wraps?
I sprayed the interior in Lizard skin, but I am worried about heat from the engine. Funds are limited now, but I am looking for advice ahead of...
Does anyone have any info on a TRW piston L 2268 . It is a dome of about .300 , closed chamber
I think the 11.1's are .140 high on the dome, wondering if these are 12.5?
Also would anyone know the volume of the dome cc's ?
I am looking for the pedal bracket which holds the steering column and bolts to the firewall
This is for a custom application, I only need the brkt, not the pedals. It does not have to be pristine condition, but solid enough for structural use
I am running into some problems with trying to obtain quiet mufflers for my car(quieter) I had wanted to come out the sides with my headers and then run custom sidepipes, but I have been told that I won't get it quiet enough
My frame has been triangulated underneath for drag racing...
My car came back home from the bodyshop last Friday. It is in urethane primer with a bit of a flame pattern on it. I am going to add one more lick on the flame, it is not the design I will keep when it is painted, but the final design is complicated just for primer. ( I may not even use...
My car left for the bodyshop on Sunday afternoon. I still have the hood and I am going to do a bit more on it this week
The car will be back in 2 or 3 weeks. It will either be in Hot Rod flat black or in a flat blue finish. I want to keep the car in the sun and try it at the...
I am getting closer on my project and I have been asking about insurance
I talked with Silver Wheel classic car insurance( custom) but the one thing they said is you are not allowed to race your car or even time trial it. If you do, your insurance is revoked. You have to sign paperwork...
I am unsure how many people are interested in this article, but Vette magazine published articles on Drag race vettes in the Nov/ Dec issues
I missed the Nov issue , but I do have the Dec issue. The 5 speed Modified Production class cars where wild to watch,and the trannies those...
I am currently trying to fit my inline shifter into the tunnel. I have a Doug Nash 5 speed which is the same dimensionally as a Richmond 5 speed or a G-Force
I have two Long style inline shifters( vertical gate style and I do have a Hurst as well) but I don't want to cut up my 63...
