    He is no longer among us the living. He is greatly missed and has a legacy here at TB.Com that will stand for sometime.

    I decide to sell my spare 3800 stall speed ( stalls at 3400 on my 274) JW Turbo 350 converter and get a 3500 JW. Summit has it for 483.00. Jeg's had it for 362.22 shipped. That's cheaper than re-stalling the one I have, considering the shipping both ways to JW. The one in my truck now is a 2800 TCS billet converter that works much better with the nitrous than the 3800 did. The 3500 should stall at 3100. The tighter 2800 converter was worth 3/10ths. in the 1/8th over the 3800. Less wheel spin for my MT Street Radials.

    Fast Lane Friday on the 1/8th mile pit road strip. N/A with a 125 shot of N20. After the Corvette, a 392 Hemi Charger went down to the truck.

    Nope. It's a 74 Toyota I have had since new. It's had various Buick V6's since 1977 and it has 360,000 miles on it.

    I had a spare 4.1 291 block sitting around that was supposed to be standard bore, but was actually .030 over. It also had small cracks in the deck on the center bolts. I honed it out to 4" and had it decked .005 to see how deep the cracks were. They were deep enough to cause concern. I put Time Sert thread inserts in the 4 bolt holes affected by the cracks. Attached is a photo of the finished inserts. I used steel inserts and used a big flat whetstone to bring them down flat to the deck. I countersunk the holes to within .015 of the full depth the countersink tool goes to. I modified a Time Sert fixture I bought cheap on E Bay to bolt it flat to the deck with a drill bushing to drill the holes straight, then used the tap and tap guide in the 7/16-14 Big Block Chevy kit to tap the holes for the inserts. I will have another .005 taken off the deck if I ever use this block. The biggest problem is getting the inserts in perfectly square to the deck. I first tried this on a junk block and got them crooked before I used the plate type fixture I modified. Having the inserts even with the deck, instead of recessed as the inserts are intended to be, should keep water away from the studs.

    Put an offer in on this. My LC2 setup needs a home. 3.8 car. Pretty nice overall. Lord knows I don't need 3 G bodies but i've been looking for a clean G wagon for 6 years and this popped up. I have enough parts floating around that I can probably get this in the low 12's with what I got for $500.
