Cool Re: Test

Lumpy alright there Jon!

What's the story on the Deuce?

Edit, I just saw your post.

Who doesn't love that sound?

She is long gone in Texas Don. But I talk to the guy from time to time. He is having a blast in it around town . Here's a couple shots of it.

Cool Re: Test

I've always loved those cars.

Should be just a skosh over 2600 lbs.?

Who made the fender well exit headers?

It actually weighed #2850 with my fat butt in it. The headers were Hooker super comps. They were pretty pricey back in 98 when I built the car and motor. I'm thinking about running some XR1's on my Camaro like the Deuce had on it.

Re: Test

I did a 65 for a guy that wanted to keep the original look with a few updates like what would have been done back in the day.







Went with a crate 350 and a TH350. A far cry from your beast

That reminds me, what did you do for a front-sump pan and pump?

Don, I didn't see your post asking about the pump and pan. I had a stock pan with a high pressure pump. Worked really well had 60lbs at idle and around 70 to 75 WOT.

I tried to find an oil pump locally...everybody handed me a regular small block pump.

LOL, I said "front sump... this won't work" Then they looked at me like I had 2 heads. Kids!

LOL! Yea I always like going to get a basic 350 Chevy engine seal kit. They ask what's it going in what color how much air is in the tires etc... and I know some kits have other stuff that others don't but when you just need basic stuff it gets frustrating. But they have a job to do can't blame them one bit.
