I use glass bead on aluminum. Aluminum Oxide is very, very aggressive on aluminum.

Last one we had would twist some up just by lifting it with a floor jack on one corner. Get the connectors or make some, the car needs it.

Well, if it's external they would have had to have your balancer and flexplate or flywheel. If they did not and it is balanced, then it's internal. Makes a big difference, obviously.

Hate 'em. Worthless IMHO on an aluminum intake because the intake will conduct heat from the heads/engine quick enough. If it's intake heat you are worried about and the intake uses an exhaust...

I stage my 351C at 180 and it's 200 across the line at 1/8 mile. Run the fans and wp in the pit for 5 minutes and we're back below 180. I like to run mine hot - less wear and tear. I use dual fans...

My hot rods are locked at 36 or 38 and use a 10 degree start retard. Works good, especially with a bigger cam. I'll be I crank the car 50 times at the drag strip and no problems. Use a good PMGR...

I would spend my money on optimizing the deck clearance and chamber size - unless it really needed boring. Then do that also.

In my experience, girdles are good for breaking valve springs. Oops, now looked at link. I would spend your $$$ on main studs and skip the girdle. If it was a 302, I'd say yes because when the...

My experience with those on a 351C is that it depends on the fastener. With ARP bolts, I don't have to mod anything or remove the guides to pull the heads. With head studs, the plates have to come...

I usually use the HP X .5 then double that as a ball park, then go up to the next size. Big pumps can be used, best if used in a return system to help reduce the load on the pump. My 351C only...

Every car here has one, including the race cars. Running an engine at a good temp - 190~200F is good for long life, less wear and it runs cooler.
