Yeah fair enough Tom, upper end work. Calling it like it is
Gonna repeat it here, looking for a set of iron ported heads to slap on this thing this winter.
I remember Chris--- Azstage1 I think had a set for sale.
Not sure if you already ruled them out or not but last I saw
he had dropped the price a little.
Had a bunch of port work done and he did have a set of rollers on them but I think he sold the rollers.
Might be worth a second look....
Bringing this to the front cause I might get bored tomorrow:
Tighten a lot of bolts on the engine to find out where oil is going on long highway trips, cause it's apparently not being burnt in the cylinders
The Driverside front window
Fix the damn dash brake light, once and for all
Auto adjust the drum brakes by using reverse
Tighten the exhaust again just to make sure
If I get ahead of myself on the heads:
New rear tires
Trans work to firm up shifts
New fuel line up to the pump? I'm thinking yes
Check current intake for leaks by spraying starting fluid
Going to Cecil??
I really wish, I can’t though, I have walking pneumonia and now have to get healthy.
Man...sorry to hear...take it easy on all that car work...
Here's something that might help you;
The above is a list of testimonials of people that had various ailments that were helped by using the protocol.
Here is the home page that came from;
The protocol is suppose to help the body heal itself from almost anything that ails it.
Probably shouldn’t have been surprised:
Sway bar end links are rotted to death
Brake reaction bar bushings are shot
Sway bar bushings are shot
Track bar bushings are shot
All four shocks are locked up
Ball joints seem to be doing well
I’m guessing after this fix, if I need to, I’ll be replacing front and rear coil springs.
Very cold (45*) for this time of year in the morning, just warming up before I took it to a local show with over 500 cars after installing 4 new shocks, track bar bushings, brake reaction rod bushings, sway bar bushings, and sway bar end links. Feels remarkably better after two short cruises.
Looking & sounding good John.
Stealth and stock appearing mode activated.
May not make a big performance increase but will be easier on your back to install.
