Re: John Haynes passed away recently

oh yea, sometimes there would be some minor flaws about torque values or something but generally were accurate. Super helpful for most things and the electrical schematics were a godsend.

Re: Exh. manifold to muffler; does anyone make....

Yup - once you get it close using the block of wood use an old junk manifold to beat the perfect fit against. Ive got a pile of warped manifolds or severely pitted/blown out/broken eared ones.

Re: The guy whose car is too fast with a new idea.

Dual high requires an AA crossmember and special holder/mount for it. Be much easier to install a 4 speed.

Re: Distributor worth rebuilding?
