I was in to Chevrolets back then. Seems like his site has been dormant for a few years. Anyway, lots of good information for all...

I'll have the starter ready and while running the drill priming the engine, bump the starter a few times. Some may disagree but it mays sense to me, either that or...

    Oil filter video

    I use to cut open my filters to look for "gold" when racing. I quit using "orange" filters many years ago after comparing them to NAPA/Wix. This video "says" it all but with visual.
