Don't know about on line, but Birmingham Spring, 201 2nd Ave S.,
Birmningham, Al. is great. Talk to Ray in the machine shop. Ph# (205)
251-6281. They have just about anything pertaining to driveshafts from
little bitty to Huge. Do a lot of custom shafts for all kinds of

I've used them on many occasions, and have never been disappointed. Not
affiliated in any way except a satisfied customer.

Well after almost 3 months, my Windsor is on it's way back together..
visited the speed shop yesterday and got the 4 page spec sheet (and the
bill for an extra $350 in parts)..

Some of the extra goodies:

ARP Main Stud Kit
ARP Rod Bolts
Comp Cam's roller tip rockers
Comp Cam's heat treated push rods
StreetDamper (non SFI approved version of Vibratech's Fluidamper)
Assorted Clevitte, Cloyes, Meling, Childs-Alberts, Badger, Carter

Machine work included but not limited to:

Complete blueprinting
balancing all rotating mass
Zero Decking
Align Boring
Torque Plate cylinder bore (.040)
Crank grind (.20/.20) chamfered and micropolished..
Boiled block, etc, etc, etc...

Being that I don't have time, they disassembled and will resassemble..

When all is said and done, except for the bare block and heads will be
brand new...

With them doing a rebuild on my Holley as well, this is gonna end up
costing me $1997 with $900 of it being parts.. and I supplied a
finished set of heads (guide plates, screw-in studs, Comp Cam's
springs.. they did a 3 angle valve jobs and put in new guides).. I have
seen some of their engines in action at the local dragstrip (both Ford
and Ch*vy), so I feel good about the price... won't be drag racin' but
nice to know the engine is built to that kind of spec

BTW.. that .040 bore makes it a 358.9ci.. can I just call it a 360...

Hopefull next week I can put the engine back in the '64 and start the
brakin fun.... I am really beginning to have old truck withdrawals...

Do You Yahoo!?
Thousands of Stores. Millions of Products. All in one place.

Sure if I can call mine a 396 (390+0.030= 395.359 :) Just don't order
parts for a 360 when you go to the parts store ... they won't fit quite
right :)

Good luck ! :)

Just my $.02

96 Mustang GT 5spd 4.6L
73ish 1/2ton 4x4 6.4L
