Re: Ol man thinkin & seeking to learn

This is my thought. If the points have gotten to the a place of being worn out, then the condenser was subjected to the same heat cycles, etc. but not actual physical wear.

Re: Great resource for ARP studs and hardware

Pete,

I am on the hunt for a sub $500 lathe for I'd love to make them myself. For $200, that money for ARP's saved me a lot of time.

Re: The "W" Block

My L block is at 3.4050" (3 3/8" + .030) after the required boring and, according to the sonic testing, still has a lot of meat left in the bore.

Re: Great resource for ARP studs and hardware

Yes, agree. No way was I going to pay $500 for studs. Plus, the ones I got are broached on the top with a hex head which makes installation a lot easier.

Great resource for ARP studs and hardware

I know a lot of folks baulk at purchasing ARP studs and other bits of their hardware due to their cost. Ronnie Roadster turned me on to a great site: Allen's Fasteners.

Re: Marsden nuts

Re: Fenton 2x2 intake. Good, bad, or ugly?

I didn’t do the exchange rate, but a Fenton intake is around $200-$300 US. Factor in your time locating one and this one may be a good deal for you.

Thanks, Mac. You've summed it up nicely. I now feel guilty for I've been known to try and pry every last tip or trick from Mac while ordering parts. I know his time valuable, but he makes you feel...
