Why are the brake lines coiled?

The 360 didn't come along until later ('72 or so?), so someone put it in there. Nothing wrong with that, as, basically, the 360 is a 390 block with a 352 crank. Except, for emissions purposes (I...

If you have one of those remote starter buttons, you can always hold 'down' pressure on the distributor and bump the starter a couple times, it'll drop right in place. The distributor gear is meshed...

Let us know what your guy says, and we'll go from there.
