The FE is not "better" necessarily--I have a Y-Block that I love--but the FE will definitely give you more options for transmission swaps. Parts and expertise for the FE might be easier to get as...

Any chance these letters are available anywhere, reproduced or NOS? The "F" on the front of my '62 fell off a while back and it would be nice to find a replacement.

My 390 is in a car, but same vintage, similar tuning issues. Most people I know with 390's and other vintage motors set the timing by ear or vacuum gauge. My timing marks are also close to where they...

Make sure the Dana 44 is in good shape before you commit--it cost me much more than that to have mine rebuilt.

Thanks--I've got it running nicely, but a little worried that I've got them a bit too tight. Next opportunity, I'll loosen them up a tad.

Thanks, Charlie. I found that the #8 intake pushrod was not on the lifter as you suggested. I was thankful to find that the depressed valve did not hit the piston. So far, but the new head gasket and...

Nothing like fixing one problem only to create another. I dug into the valve train and found that the pushrod on the #8 intake cylinder was jammed, holding the valve open. Fixed that and fired it...

Took a while to get to this. Rather than try to torque the heads, I bought a gasket set and pulled the head. The plugs looked normal and all-in-all everything was pretty clean. On of the head bolts...

This was true on my '62. In my case, Summit took them back, even after advising me to try bending them (which I did not attempt). If time is not an issue, then they may be worth a try. For me, Red's...
