Timing Question

  Views: 224   Comments: 17

My '33 has a heavily modified 383 Chevy Stroker in it (turned just over 600 hp on an engine dyno) and needs 36 degrees total timing to get the maximum performance. I'm running an MSD 6AL system with an MSD pro-billet mechanical advance distributor, part number 85551. I changed the advance stop bushing to a 23 degree unit, which I thought would reduce my initial timing to a minimum of 13 degrees, although I'm ok up to about 18 degrees, Right now, the initial won't go below 22 degrees, giving s...

Torque convertors

  Views: 190   Comments: 9

I recently installed a new 350/290 Chevy performance create engine and reused my stock 1975 TH350 transmission (maybe around 1300 rpm stall). The engine seems to idle a little rough and tends to stall until the engine is warmed up.The installation instructions indicated a 'torque convertor with a higher stall speed on automatic transmissions' may be required. Chevrolet performance suggested a 2500 rpm stall however that's way more than I want for just a Sunday cruiser.
Has anyone been able to u...

A little help needed

  Views: 178   Comments: 6

I have what I think is a '76-'78 Mustang II rack for my '37 Ford, but unfortunately the fittings in the rack are not in the same place as the one in my '33. I want to be sure I'm connecting the right hoses to the right place, but can't find a clear answer online and my casting number doesn't seem to match what I have found.

I've attached a number of photos to see if I have this right. I'm assuming the large line out of the bottom of the reservoir is the high pressure suppy line to the GM ty...

A retired older couple return to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they were interested in to a beautiful blonde in a very revealing outfit.

The old man was visibly upset. He spoke to the salesman sharply. "Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $55,000 asking price," said the older man. "Yet I just heard you closed the deal for $45,000 to the lovely young lady there."

"And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no w...

Is it just me or do some of you other guys and gals have trouble posting pictures. I would post more often on different subjects but when it comes time to ad pics I get confused and delete the whole subject. If you could make it easier i believe you would have more people participate and get more members and subjects. I know it always comes down to send them to willy and he will post them for you. Their has to be a better and easier way. When I post on ebay or craigs list I can post over 20 p...

Why you need insurance on your Classic

  Views: 213   Comments: 1

Why you need insurance on your Classic. I just got back from a show in Oklahoma and met a guy who had a very nice 1957 Chevy convertible. The car was super nice except for the smashed front end. The guy hit a deer on his way in during the early morning hours. What a mess. I did not ask if he had insurance. I know I drive my builders from time to time with no insurance but I guess most of us do... Good luck out there. Willie Moore...
