Just Starting

Hi - I've been an occasional lurker here for a year or so. I've had a nice driver '67 RS/SS coupe for about 2 years that I was pretty content to just keep the same way I bought it, but a couple of months ago I cooked the M20 that was in it.

Thinking I could relive my youth.. (I rebuilt a 283 and powerglide back in high-school and replaced my crappy old 6 cyl in a '53 Chevy truck..) I decided to do handle the tranny fix myself.

After researching options, I decided to get a new Supercase M22 Wide-ratio. A couple hundred more for a bulletproof new tranny seemed worth it rather than rebuilding the old M20. Well, then I figured, might as well get a new shifter while I'm at it and also seems like a good time to take care of the leaky pinion seal. Might as well do a new clutch while its all apart too.

The replacement went well and all of this new drivetrain now has me wanting to bolt something more "worthy" to it. Along with a little more muscle I figure I'm going to need to take care of a few "safety" items also...Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Larger Wheels, Front-end rebuild, body bushings, etc.

Anyways, my wife now thinks I'm an idiot and I seem to be spending all my time here, on summitt and reading Chevy High Performance. I figure I'll be needing some help in the near future and look forward to reading suggestions in the forums.

The Internet. It doesn't make you stupid. It just makes your stupidity more accessible to others.
