7 valve cover bolts = big block 385 series. 8 valve cover bolts = Cleveland/modified.

Wouldn't hurt to change the fluid. If there is gear oil in the bellhousing the only place it can come from is the trans. The vent for the gearbox is through the shifter. There is a seal for the...

Quick and dirty, cut that boot off if you are worried about it. If it isn't there, it can't get into the workings of the clutch.

The boot isn't the source, it is a symptom. Oil causes rubber to swell. You could have a leaking oil pan, but that wouldn't sling the oil around like a rear main would off a flywheel. Is the...

The problem with ohm testing battery cables is that all it takes for a wire to have zero resistance is a single good strand of copper. Voltage drop is a better way because the cable is loaded. I...
