    Are rubber valve cover gaskets JUNK? Pic inside

    I've never had good luck with any kind of perimeter bolt covers being completely leak free until I used the felpro double thick cork with steel core.

    Traction Aid for 77 K10

    Trutrac rear diff gets my vote. The one in my Tahoe works great. Dont even know it's there with normal driving

    Lowering Shackle with 56" Springs

    Dont know of it's rare it not but mine is a shortbed with the longer springs and I had to notch the bed crossmember

    ARP with the 5/16" head or Percy's split lock for the bolts and felpro for the gaskets on my junk. Never had any issues

    Header angle / ground clearance

    I've got stainless Hooker street stock headers on mine. Can't say I'd recommend it but they can be made to work dimpling a tube on each side to clear the control arm and minor trimming at the firewall. If you've got tubular lower control arms it would be a piece of cake...

    I'm sure they love all these interest free loans everyone gives them.

    15x10 OE Pickup 71-87 5x5

    I've looked for months myself and come up empty handed. Makes no sense the corvette rally style is less than half that price.

    What are your favorite/ best looking valve covers for SBC?

    Tall Proforms. Their orange didn't match so I painted them

    I wouldn't order anything from them given my own and others experiences.

    Yes. As long as the leaf width and arch is similar youre good.

    Stripped crankshaft hole with new harmonic balancer bolt.

    It's smaller than the BBC bolt which is 1/2-20. Probably wouldnt have to drill it out any. I've just ran the tap in there on stripped exhaust manifold bolts when I couldn't get a drill into position.

    305 HO valve covers?

    Magnesium ones from early 80s vettes are similar.

    Stripped crankshaft hole with new harmonic balancer bolt.

    Should be enough material there to go metric also. 12mm

    USA1 Industries

    I thought they would need to actually produce something to need a production manager. Probably wanted it to sound like a legit company. Guy that answered the phone spins his hat around the right way and becomes the "production manager" Lol

    86 BIG BLOCK C10 upper radiator hose collapsing. Why?? Video inside.

    With a serpentine belt I'm guessing someone may have installed the wrong rotation water pump. The hose shouldn't be that soft either

    Camshaft identification

    Mercruiser/HT383/Ramjet cam unless it's been reground. Part number is 14097395. Little bigger than the stock vortec cam with a tighter LSA.

    Cup Holder

    I like it and probably as safe as a gear shift lever on a manual transmission between a middle seat riders legs.

    I ordered some door panels from these clowns because it said they were in stock on their website. 2 weeks after they charged my card and no shipping info I shot em an email only to find out they were backordered. Requested a refund and it took em another week before they sent it through PayPal.

    NV4500/NP205 Rebuild First Impression

    Are you using a stock rubber isolated shifter handle? I swapped one in my Tahoe with a 241 t case and it's only noisy in 5th gear. The aftermarket Core shifter i bought amplifies everything because I can grab the handle and it shuts up. I'm guessing the gear driven 205 probably makes yours...

    AC Delco 15-33220 Replacement

    It can happen. My heater core started to leak after a few high RPM blasts with the new engine. I just put a stainless all thread coupling nut in the inlet hose, with a clamp on the outside. Dont remember the size but it was a snug fit. Haven't had any recurring issues after replacing the heater...

    Aluminum interior door handles/straps

    Those look great, and wouldnt be too hard to copy since you have a set to go off of. Aluminum flat bar is cheap and a little bit of polish would shine em up to match the rest of the trim.
