    New best

    Clean everything up good. Make sure cover is in good shape and Throw the stupid o-ring in garbage. Use Red Lock tite on the cover surface where it is pressed into the case, Let it set up overnight before adding fluid. wont fly off again. Be sure to check the governer and gear while u have it apart.

    Hook and spin

    Also, With a Radial and ANY kind of power you need a lower SLR (starting line ratio). Radials DO NOT like to be Shocked. Id recommend if you have a th400 to install a 2nd gear start Transbrake valve body. OR if you have a manual Valve body just start out in 2nd gear. It will feel kinda like a...

    Hook and spin

    You need 5 inches of dropout on the back, leave 1.5 for compression. If the Car Hooks and spins while the front is in the air Chances are its doing one of two things, Either you need to tighten up the extension on the rear shocks ( you do have double adjustables right? ) and or tighten up the...

    ET/MPH estimate

    12.30's if you can get it to hook. Drag radials dont work well with stick. New Pro's are a touch better with a stick but still not the preferred tire for a stick.

    Anyone Running This Manifold??

    There is much better cams out there then those two. The 282 is a older grind... Call straub technologies or bullet and give them your engine specs. They can provide you a cam that will be much better suited.

    hurst v gate ram rod 4 speed shifter

    how often do u change ur oil and.....

    What is acceptable in the filter when you cut it open? My 436 sbc has 3 oil changes and 2000 miles on it now and I'm still getting little stuff in filter. It's not magnetic and its not much maybe a little piece of alluminum dibris here and there. Motor previously ate a alluminum Timing cover...

    SBC 427 HP question

    Weind air strike intake port matched to heads with a 1 inch open spacer. This combo on ky 383 went 12.01 verses 12.28 with a victor Jr intake. All the tests I've seen has proven that this is a good compromise vs a single plane intake.

    SBC 427 HP question

    Depends on what your plans are for The car and hood issues. If its gonna be a hotbstreet/strip car a holley 300-25 strip dominator intake and 850-950 Carb would be a good choice...really depends on the full cam he has spec'd for you tho too. A dual plane intake would be fine on that motor for...

    SBC 427 HP question

    I dont thing your gonna see 600 in that combo, 525-550 is more realistic. You can not effectivly "over head" a big inch small block of this nature. The dual plane intake and 220 runners are gonna hold it back a little but it will be a stump pulled for sure. My 436 sbc has dart 230cc platinum...
