Hello from the somewhat cold north
Hi all,just bought a membership. I live in Regina Saskatchewan Canada, 3 hours north of the North Dakota border. I have a 79 Camaro that I'm fixing up. Did the shake down run this weekend. I bought it with a blown motor (missing 1 rod) so I had no clue as to what I bought other than the body was in ok shape. I had a 383 built and dynoed at 393 hp and 440 lb and installed it. The car is a 4 speed and had stock shifter so I installed a Hurst Super Shifter. A little cutting, welding and bending got the stick close to where I want it. So far, I have changed the alternator out 2 twice and need a third. First to where used junk. The trans is very noisy (marbles) but shifts ok (its a Sag) and I have a driveline virbation when accelerating. I replaced the master cylinder so now I have some brakes and need to change out the front calipars as one is leaking. I installed a Jegs 2.5' manderal exhaust kit with Ultra Flows. Anyhow, good to be on this site.
