    Wth is going on with this crap?

    I fired it up and warmed for about 20 to 30 seconds and it idled fine. Drove around the block. Punched it a little to get a hard shift and then drove it back about 20mph. Pulling in the driveway it started stumbling and wouldn't take Throttle very well. Then this..... I think it's electrical...

    2,3 or 4 core radiator for BBC?

    Ok, I'm looking for a radiator upgrade for my square. 454 with no fan shroud in it right now is not good. I have a perfectly good fan shroud that came out when swapped out the 305. It's too big for the 454. It looks like I'll be going aluminum with electric fans. Then I can remove the fan on...

    Ring and pinion gear ratio

    I picked up the truck 2 days ago with new 3.73 posi rear end. On the way home it was running 2700rpm at 55mph. It's a bit more than I figured up before. I got 2700rpm at 65mph but, I was wrong. I figure I'll burn up the motor and transmission driving it long distance at that rpm and speed. It...

    89 firebird to buy or not to buy

    Bad habit of always looking for cars and trucks to buy. Don't really need one but, this might be a good deal. I'd offer him 3k for it. It does have a v8 so that's a plus. I'd like some opinions on this car. I know you can't tell much about it but, maybe somebody else has had one and can tell me...

    Looking at car lifts

    I would love to put a 2 post car lift on the side of the house. They have 9,000lb ones for about 2k or so. That would be ideal but, would have to ask the city because I'd hate to buy it and them come by and tell me to get rid of it. Saw this one at HF for 1,800. It holds 6,000lbs and is...

    Where do you put your antifreeze when doing a flush?

    Will a 5 gallon bucket work? I don't have a shallow big pan to slide under there. I was thinking of doing this while the truck is still on the ramps. Once in the bucket what do I do with it? Need to do the SS too and it's much more lower. Thanks for any ideas.
