    Headers that fit the steering shaft

    This is with ProFiler 195 heads. Those AFR's may have a higher port but the headers "should" still clear.

    Headers that fit the steering shaft

    I have Hedman 65104 (1 3/34"), no issues around steering shaft. Those look like they're for another application that someone beat into place.

    Extended Thread Lug nuts

    I had TT 2's at one time, don't remember which lug nut. I see that ARE's web site has a support chat and phone number. They would certainly know.

    Cringe worthy to imagine the number of people destined to repeat history.

    Head gasket blown?

    I don't see where a wiped out cam would cause the milky froth in the valve covers. Engine will need to go to a machine shop for evaluation. Hopefully you caught it in time to avoid major damage.

    Forgetting History

    Pearl Harbor, December 7th, 1941, 2,400 killed, and hardly a word in the media. Sad status of the current situation we live under.

    New Here, 1981 Camaro Z28

    Nice looking car, welcome aboard. Ask around and be patient, I'm sure someone has a correct rear end they're willing to part with.

    Head gasket blown?

    Yep, may be time to pull heads, check the intake gaskets first.

    Head gasket blown?

    One of the old ways to check for a blown head gasket is to take the radiator cap off, crank engine, and watch for bubbles in the radiator.

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    Both tires are worn the same, so I'm certain he didn't adjust for road crown. Roads around here are widely varied. I live near Chickamauga National Park, a Civil War battle ground. So we have everything from interstate to wagon trails. I'm going to have the alignment guy check for what I...

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    Have tall ball joints. Hopefully a 1 3/8" front bar will further reduce roll, keep the tires a bit flatter on the road. Nothing for toe in under bump, I'm not that knowledgeable on suspension. At 72 I'm still trying to learn, mainly just jack of all trades, master of none. But when I start...

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    Which version Firehawk, Indy 500? Yes, old and discontinued "summer" tire. Latest version is 555 G2. I have same tire on the rear but 275/40x18 and they're wearing a lot better.

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    Nitto 555, not known for good wear. I didn't realize this when I got them wholesale through a friend that manages a body shop. it was a great deal though. Do you recommend Firehawk tires?

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    There may be 3K on these tires, it does drive straight. No rotation, tires are directional and different size front/rear, 35psi. I bought the car new, a bit over 70K miles now. I replaced everything in steering and suspension about 10K ago when I installed 2G spring, arms, etc. Front and rear...

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    I questioned about raising to 40psi a couple months ago, negative feedback on that. Yep, tread wear is certainly not a strong point on these tires. I'm thinking strings a pie pans might do the same job. Alignment was on a brand new Hunter machine. Technician had to ask how to disable...

    Outside Edge Wear on Front Tires

    Starting with the specs and wear is same on both tires. Tires are directional with fronts being smaller, so no rotation. Tire: Nitto 555, 245/45x17, 35psi. Wheel: 17x8, 4.5 BS. Align specs per Custom Works: 1/2-1* negative camber, 5* caster, 1/8-1/16" toe in. I do not auto cross or road race...

    Cheap 283 on my local FB. Will it direct swap?

    I used my ZTR to push/pull the 56 around when I was working on it. Works great.

    Battery disconnect switch and ground - a stupid question.

    I misspoke when I said mini relay, I meant mini circuit breaker. I got if from EvilBay, it fits into a standard fuse holder and is wired just like the fuse you described, jumpered around the battery disconnect. All the extra wires I have are for the in tank fuel pump relay, pos/neg cables...

    Battery disconnect switch and ground - a stupid question.

    Think I have something like you're describing, a picture would be helpful. If so, no the car will not start. The starter will draw too many amps and blow the fuse. I'm using a 3 amp mini relay on my setup. So when my old forgetful azz forgets to reconnect the ground, it just trips the relay...
