Re: '65 Coupe Resto-Mod and '68 Full Custom Restoration

I was wondering just how hot the car body would get this time of year. We do have a lot of sun, but it's not a really hot sun, and the temperatures rarely get above 75-80 degrees this time of year, and most days not even that warm. All weekend the car was in the sun in my front driveway and the hood...

You slide it between the windshield and the tr...

As for the exhaust manifold, I am considering switching to headers, especially for the sound and somewhat for the performance gains, but am worried about increased heat in the cockpit. Paul I had both Hooker standard and then Hooker chrome side exhaust headers on the '68 small block and I did not h...

Re: 71 Sees Daylight After 21 Years!

I looked at the picture of the valves. There are others on here who may be able to offer a better guess but I'd say you may have a valve seal that's leaking. The valve on the right looks dry while the valve on the left appears to have a greasy buildup that, at least to my mind, is the telltale sign...
