    Apparently Graffix Unlimited can make almost any sticker with a good sample. Never used them, but others on here have.

    That balancer is fooked..... Have a look at Pertronix (USA) they did electronical doodads for converting points. Good reviews, too.

    As far as I recall, the XD became the first "Metric" blocks, (5.8 instead of 351), and they changed to electronic ignition, and used a metric diameter dizzy. Not much else changed inside though, all the journals were still Imperial, I reckon. typical Clevo issue, cracked manifolds......Custom headers are gonna be expensive, maybe find yourself a good welding company. Can be fixed, but needs some experience.

    Fuck....... that chain is barely engaged on the teeth of the timing gear.! One backfire, and she was toast. Good news on the internals being reasonable, at least it hasn't been thrashed, and left to rot with a bent 'rod, or worse.

    347 stroker build

    All good info, there. Also consider the 9 inch is VERY heavy, why did you want one? Ease of changing ratios, or just because? E series diffs can be just as strong, if built right, and obviously, they bolt straight in. As Thom asked, what are you going to do with the car? Burnouts, Caltracs, weekend cruiser.?

    Yep. Agree with Gerg and Boingk. Use it as a door stop. Looked at the Edelbrock carbs.?

    The bores will probably hone out ok, but the cylinders will be "egg" shaped when you mic them up accurately. A 'dingle ball' or 'tree' hone will be best, but they are size specific EG: 4.000" - 4.100" etc, etc, so at $100 a pop, and you may only use them once, on one specific bore size. Having said that, if you're not chasing big numbers, a hone and new rings will suffice, if theres no ridge at the top of the pots.

    Replacement head for iron crossy

    Thunderhead289 (YouTuber) did this on their Satellite revival. 318 hemi (I think) worked a treat.
