Good point. I'll have to keep that in mind. Interestingly enough the old Holley was rated at 7 PSI. This new Carter is rated at 5.5 to 6.5 PSI.

I'm aware of the history of the 400 and its 335 class brethren, but this 400 is far from stock and is carbed with a 600 cfm Edelbrock Performer, and full MSD ignition - as was mentioned in the first...

400 Engine Flutters then dies

The modified 400 in my '53 appears to have gotten a virus. It will run fine then will start to get a flutter sound to the engine and just die. Put it in neutral, coast to a stop and it will fire...

I think for a sale, you just need the VIN inspection which is stamped on the frame or radiator cross member, (as it is on my '53). Seems like the DMV will do an inspection and verify this. Give...

Those will work. A 26 would be a hotter plug, 24 would be colder. I'm running full MSD ignition system in my warmed over 410 in my '53, and I run 24s. I run 25 copper core Autolites in my stock...

Mine is stamped in the same spot, on that front cross member that the radiator support sits on. I have nothing stamped on my frame rails.

I haven't bought one of their magazines in years. It seems that they recycled their stories every few years and I stopped buying.

Your local driveline shop can set you up, too. I got a complete driveshaft custom made locally for my '53 for right around $200. They are not that hard to measure, the shop will tell you how.
