Mike- yes, many years ago. I pulled it all apart and it sits in pieces in my shed and my parents house! Looking back at it I can't believe I got it for $700 bucks with all the pristine sheet metal on it (probably should have finished it instead of my 81) Been starting a family and am finally in a good spot to start working on it again- going to combine them both together. there's a very good chance I may be sending my 81 to B&C auto restoration in Wayne county to do all the bodywork/roll bar, etc. I got more money then time at this point of my life and am tired of staring at a car in my garage for the past 10 years! (Owned it now for 20) On a more related note to this thread, the machine shop couldn't get the head to weld up so I'm buying a new pair. New question- I have a solid Flat tappet comp cam (230/236 duration- .501 lift) - can I use the stock springs in the New AFRs with this solid cam? Opening pressure is 140lbs and at .500 lift will be about 320lbs. These springs are advertised as "hydraulic roller" springs but it is my understanding that solid flat tappets tolerate/want more pressure then hydraulic flat tappets and these should work (seem maybe to be 5-10lbs high on the initial seat pressure but not sure if I should be worried about That- cam is already broken in and has a few thousand miles on it).
