    Older stuff but still pretty cool!
    scored a old crane cam in good shape it's a 284-2-nc i believe it's a mechanical cam, and i scored a dual flex-a-lite electric fans with wiring and all.
    old eddy intake c4b some thin head gaskets and some fuel lines all for 23 bux :)

    Soak that intake down with "aluminum brightener" (acid), and it will look like brand new cast.

    I buy a spray bottle of chrome wheel cleaner, it has acid in the ingredients. Once that's gone, I keep refilling it with the gallon jug I buy for $20. You can't use a regular spray bottle because the acid will eat the pump. I get the gallon jug at the local farm supply store for half of what Napa charges. I spray it on heavy, let it sit, brush it, then soak it down again. It will start fizzing real good on the second spray down. Let it eat for a few minutes and rinse it off.

    Thats a great deal congrats. Either a mad GF sold the stuff cheap or the guy didn't know what he had or what it was worth.

    Lucky dog. The fan was worth that much. Makes me want to get out Saturday morning and see what I can find.
