I bought 2 of these 850 HP bodies for $63 each last night, but this morning I was going to tell you guys here about them as Holey had a bunch on sale and I got mine on Amazon (no shipping) and now these are $160 WTF?? wonder if someone caught on to this price and changed it. Oh well I have two on the way this week.

I am not sure if they are the XP main bodies (that would be cool) more like the older HP version. Either way I can take my 2 4781's no one wants and make HP carbs out of them. Sounds like these main bodies comes with all the gaskets also.

Nope, older HP mold with lower quality casting that some have casting flash/flaking issues, sent them back....could be blems, could be mine LOL.

Take a machinist file to it, watch out for possible casting flash in the booster entries, make sure they are straight as well. They flow more then advertised for the most part.

I'll take those old 4781's that nobody wants off your hands 1980RS LOL.

Needed a new torque wrench to replace my old beam type. New vehicle lugs torque to 140 ft/lbs and old wrench tops out at 100. Found this on Amazon for reasonable money, not made in China. Real slick wrench, heavy, good length for leverage, ratchet head, easy smooth turning set mechanism, nice solid snap at torque. Still like the beam wrench for some things that don't need that much torque.

I just like new tools too.

I saw a post here for a regular email for "barn finds" it looked interesting and joined it. I had no intention of buying anything because I'm not quite done with the Camaro nevermind I don't have room for another car. Well a 1977 Datsun 280z showed up. Complete car but not running but will crank and turn over. Clear and clean title and complete ownership trail and the seller has owned it since 2010 and only wanted what he paid for the car back out of it. The ad title said $800 I thought it was a scam and meant $8000. I inquired and talked and texted all day yesterday with the owner. $800 was the price so I bought it. He and his wife are making a road trip and bringing it to my parents home in OK this weekend for a very reasonable cost. I'm really excited to see it the next time I'm down there. Here are a few pics.
