I have the following spare parts I wanted to use to put the motor together with: - Ready to run MSD distributor + blaster coil...
  3. Restoration Corner
    I know it may be a bit too early to ask without having any look or estimating what I will be repairing, but I'm wanting to try to take a peek at what are the most likely tools I will be needing to repair my Camaro? I'm sure it would mostly depend on what area on what I'll be working into, I...

    OK, so first off let me say that I've looked through some of the previous topics on this and found a lot of good info, but I still wanted to start a new thread because every build and every opinion seems different, so I wanted to get recommendations as tailored to my specific situation as...

    I'm putting a new cam and heads in my 350 with the assistance of one of my mechanic friends. I am a newbie when it comes to engine building and would like to get your input in addition to his on what would be some good options for me to consider for a cam and heads. I had spoke to the person...
  8. Fourth Generation
    I recently traded a Mitsubishi Eclipse and therefore am new to the muscle. I have a Cam Bearing going out due to ( I think ) letting the car over heat and warping it. At least that's what I was told. How much is it gonna cost to fix the problem? Am I gonna have to go through the whole rebuild...

    Ok, so I am not a car guy (never been in an auto shop class) but I am turning into one. I am 43 and loving this project. :) I am doing a jack stand restore on my wife’s first car. It is a 68 plain Jane 327, power glide, single leaf (Do not know much more that that). I have dropped the rear end...
  10. New Member Introductions
    Greetings all! First time poster here - recently got the bug to rebuild/restore a 1967 or 1968 Camaro, and looking for a sanity check on a project car. Seems like current trends can get me a rusty shell (maybe with/without engine) for $3-4K and below. On the flip side, I'm seeing cars in the...
