    Hi my name is Mike, I am new to the site. I just purchased a 70 SS with 454. I want to change the oil and noticed you used 0/40, do you still use it, and do you recommend I should?


    Thanks in advance.




    Mike

    Thanx for replying to my tailgate trim posting. I'll use the repro piece I have & continue to look for a restorable original.

    Re: Replace Elky Shocks
    Use Chevelle shocks like he said. Since mine was a rarer than most 454 Elco and had many options I elected to try and restore the brass air lines/fittings and spent major dollars on EBAY for a NOS set of "pleasure lift/superlift" airshocks. Elcos came with factory airshocks so whatever you do please PM me if you decide to go standard shocks in the back. I would like to have the factory brass lines/fittings off yours if their not cut or bent.
