    HI Tom5

    I need some input on a imca stockcar circle track engine i'm building. Trying to decide which mellings select oil pump is right for my application. 355 with solid cam, edm lifters, full roller rockers, PAC 1201x springs... 7400 rpm max. I have some serious money in the heads so want to get it right... I bought a 10555C but wondering if I should rethink that.

    Hi Tom. I just read a post of yours in regards to steering box's. You mentioned VR in your original 70 box. If you don't mind, could you explain that to me, and if anyway let me know how I can do that to mine?

    Tom, sorry I dragged you into the mess in that thread, hopefully I'll do better reading of a thread before I post, but maybe not, Thanks for helping folks out.

    Hey Tom, thanks for the reply on the brake question. I did I not bench bleed the master. Will that defeat the power boost? The pedal is not spongy. It just doesn't have any stopping power. I can stop the car but I can't lock up the wheels.

    Hi Tom, today i've a new answer for you! Could you tell me the correct spark for my 1972 402 BB!!! The old owner used seven AC Delco R44T and one R44Ts!!!!!!!! Yes one spark was different from the others!!! Now i'm riding with NGK BR6FS, a marine spark. But could be these NGK sparks my issue? Maybe my distributor is ok! Thanks for your patience.

    Hi Tom, how do you do?
    I think about your message and i decide to buy a stock front disc brake conversion , like those used in 196, keeping the rear drum brake! I want it like it leaves Kansas City assembly plant in 1969!!!!
    But unfortunately i discovered that my engine is not a stock 396!!!! Last night i was looking for casting numbers and i saw these codes:

    Engine block : 3999290, D6 72 ( 402 BB 1972, 2 bolt )
    Front : T 0412 TLM (Towananda NY, april 12, Truck TH400 )

    Cylinder heads : 3993820, L 21 70, GM 11 T ( 1970 LS3 heads 330 HP, december 21 of 1970, 113 cc , oval port, open chamber , 2.06 INT. and 1,72 EXH.

    That's the truth?

    There is nothing I like more than talking cars, especially old Chevys & eating lunch. However, I am still a go to work every day kinda guy and I will keep punching the clock as long as they let me. With that being said, if my teaching schedule allows I can take a long lunch sometime. So let me know when you are coming to this side of town.
