    My 8 month HORROR story. What would you do?

    This was from Mr. Mooneys engine during our tear down. Do y'all see any evidence of rod knock? How about those tolerances? Think this would make any noise?

    My 8 month HORROR story. What would you do?

    First of all I want to say I’m very sorry about your frustration with the motor. I’ve been through it. Several times. In fact after dumping about 20,000 into my car it was wrecked by a dumbass less than 2 months after getting it back on the road. I was gutted. But we move on and do the best we...

    ECM Reset

    Hello all. Wanted to see if any of you had seen this problem as I have seen it on my own personal car as well as several customer cars. Check out this datalog below. As you can see there is a single frame where the ECM resets itself. You see RPM drop to nothing, and the same with the TPS and...

    Machine shop costs

    I think self promotion is a little tacky so I wont tell you who I work for in this post. What I will say is that while our machine prices are relatively high; I've calculated what my boss makes per hour on an average stroker motor/girdle build. I'll just say I made more working at mcdonalds. You...

    Suggestions for monitoring oil pressure

    Does anyone on this board monitor Oil pressure from the back of the block as Ruggles suggested way back in the day? Would love to put a transducer back there.

    Intercooler Hoses - Why they matter in restoration work

    Hello all. RC and I have been working a few cars where the directive from the customer is to "present the car in factory or showroom condition." As you all know Richard (and now I for that matter) can be very picky when it comes to original parts. So when a customer had supplied us with...

    OIl pan removal with front main studs

    I have taken the pan out with main studs many times. Watch that counterweight as has been suggested. If your motor mounts are worn that might make it hard. I ended up putting Poly motor mounts which makes the pan practically fall out now.

    Caspers cap suggestion - you good with this?

    Not a fan of that cap personally. Would rather have the tool that plugs in. I think Casper might still make that.

    Frame bracing / support

    I have a very low-tech version of this (made from a sign post lol). I took it off for shits and giggles one day and noticed a lot more squeaky squeak in the rear. The brace that goes up above the rear shocks Would probably be just as good although I don't know if it would have as much leverage.

    Oil Catch Can & Valve Covers Installed

    How to install a DW 300 fuel pump and achieve proper fuel pressure

    The filter sock design of this pump is its major downfall. I've already had one chuck its sock off in-tank when that cheesy retaining clip broke off. Of course for the price and performance it still can't be beat.

    CNC porting head porting or the "old fashioned way"

    Just having driven a couple cars with ported irons I can say the seat of the pants difference is definitely there. Even down low. My main concern with my car is to get it to feel as strong from a light as possible. Heads are where I'm looking next.
