  1. Brakes, Suspension & Steering
    Has anyone ordered from Southwest performance products? They have a set of tubular control arms for $330, and this seems a little iffy to me because it doesn't state if they are made in the U.S.A. and they seem a little on the cheap side for a full set of tubular control arms. I am currently in...
  2. Headers and Exhaust
    I have a carbureted crate sbc 350 engine LM1, stock exhaust manifolds and just bought Edelbrock e-street heads and comp cam CL 12-246-3 with new lifters, pushrods and stamped steel roller tip rocker arms that I haven’t installed yet. Besides starting over and making it electric 🤮, how do I make...
  3. Engine
    Seems these 4-bolt "Universal" blocks have some threaded holes I do not recall seeing on the older blocks. Not certain if they reach oil/water. Left/drivers side. Want to plug them just to be sure, they are not pipe thread "probably" are dry. One is just to the right and up from the oil filter...
  4. Parts
    Hello I am new to the classic car world, I just bought a 66 el camino, lots of work to be done but has great bones. I was wondering if anyone could help out a young buck/newbie. My power steering pump is leaking and I am trying to decide if I rebuild, buy a new oem part, or buy a remanufactured...
  5. Projects & Builds
    So...my Grandfather, Dad and I ended up driving up to Oklahoma earlier this week and picking up a Chevelle that we have been chasing down for almost 2 years and bringing it home with us! Extremely excited because this car is actually the first car that I bought for myself! Anyways I thought I...
  6. Engine
    I'm knee deep into my ground up 71' Chevelle 454 restoration. This will be a pump gas street car and want it to go fast, stop quick, corner as good as possible, and sound mean as hell. The chassis (powder coat doner frame) is mostly done (thx Mark @ SC&C- AFX suspension kit, V2 Verishock, 14"...
  7. Restoration Corner
    While cleaning and painting the front clip of my Chevelle earlier this year, I decided to go deeper into the engine bay and give her the cleaning and detailing that I've been meaning to do since 1998. The first major component, as I work my way towards the firewall, was the Saginaw power...
  8. Restoration Corner
    I'm currently working to restore my 1970 SS396's front end and engine compartment. My immediate project is brakes related: master cylinder, booster, hold-off valve, pressure differential valve/switch, and hard & soft lines. There is precious little information concerning the hold-off valve...
  9. Electrical & Wiring
    I need to rebuild my stock distributor and am having trouble finding a rebuild kit (bushings, etc). Any suggestions where to find them? My engine is a 67 327.
  10. Engine
    I searched and could find an answer, trying this... I'm looking for distributor rebuild instructions for my original points dist on my 67 327. The shaft has about 3-32 play up and down and is a little sloppy at the rotor, which may be causing some gear noise/wear. Methinks it's time to...
  11. Heating & Cooling
    Is there some one out there that rebuilds A6 compressors or sells rebuilt on with a core exchange? I am adding A/C to my 71 but the compressor needs to be rebuilt and I dont want to spend the $$ for a new one from the local auto parts store. Any suggestions?
