If you need THAT case just find 2 ears, bolt it all to a bell housing and weld. We have done several. Some creative grinding and you can hardly tell.

Without big tires I think the 350 will do OK. Might want to think about that low rpm converter unless your motor likes to idle at 6 or 700 rpm.

I was on Ebay and bidded on some parts that were modified to the point of no repair. My bids were rejected and I wondered what they based their value on. Must have been this vendors store.

Does that 5 blade fan fit other engines? It seems I have seen more of them around.

I just bought a new trailer. I plan to buy some tire covers. A friend in the tire business says that they help with the UV damage. The tires on my Z are 17 years old but have never been left in the sun more than cruises, look great and ride great. Some off brand tires that came on one of my other cars looked good were so hard I threw them away.

I would worry about the VIN. Not much need to fake the trim tag.

I have never thought about it. It seems that this would help the bottom end which is what a street car wants. My search parameters have grown wider.

Looks like I lost the Ebay bid anyway. Might look for an oval port next time. I have never ran a big block tri power but I think it would have that day 2 cool factor. Keeping all the real stuff on the shelf if I do it.

Thinking of running a 427 tri power on my L78 just for cruise in shows. I have used rectangle port intakes over oval port heads, no problem. Can I use oval port intakes over rectangle port heads? Some power loss not a factor, just cruising and have way more power than tire now.

I seem to remember a picture of a as delivered car here or ? that was to show paint overspray on the exhaust manifolds. I remember it having grease pencil marks on the head.

Different brands of paint using the same numbers do not always match.

Does your NCRS papers show production date and Bill Conner? Your date and color really makes this worth the time to search.
