    INTRO 1984 Cutlass Calais

    Okey doky, sounds good because you have them. I pumped a lot of money over the years into heads, mostly iron. Back then only Battens were available and you needed to buy the intake plus exhaust flanges and have a set of headers made. Rather than one LARGE purchase I sunk smaller(but still...

    INTRO 1984 Cutlass Calais

    Jmo here, from personal experience. Don't necessarily expect a large improvement with Edelbrock heads. 461 with iron G heads, big valved, backcut, sodium filled, ported/filled crossovers/milled yada yada. Car ran 11:23. Chanded to Mondello cryogenic frozen/ported Edelbrock head$, one of...

    INTRO 1984 Cutlass Calais

    A-heads are 1965 heads. Are you still running the original one year big block only valve train? They look like their adjustable but not. Is this a 45 degree 1965/66 block? I'm getting ready to put a 1965 425+ 0.030. I sold the A-heads. I plan on using big valved B or C's. Have you any time...

    Installing a 425 into my 87 cutlass

    Without the A.C. compressor and using an aluminium intake the "big block" (actually just a taller block) will be about the same as a 307. So the springs should work. As for the headers, I know Hooker made Super Comps for the 400/425/455 Olds. The drivers side tuve came outside the frame rail. I...

    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.

    SN oil in a 40 or 50 weight

    I think I'd only do 1 qt of ATF and 4 qts of oil with a fresh Wic/NAPA filter. I'd buy a few oil filters.

    Another selling thread

    Yes, I've been trying to get motivated and get rid of some sh*t, opps I mean stuff. I jokingly say(but kind of true) my Daughter "the Attorney" is making me get rid of some of my cars/parts. She says "what am I going to do with all those cars if you die?" I tell her, either call and auction...

    Another selling thread

    I use to sell of eBay but haven't in 12/14 years. I loved ebay back in the day. Not only did i sell but i had a "scam" I did. I'd see something selling that I had, I'd put it in the watch list. If there was a bidding war, I'd go to the bidding history and email the 2nd and 3rd (loosing...

    My Last Rodeo

    I have a few small air compressors but on Black Friday I went to Tractor supply and bought a DeWalt 60 gallon, I know, it's only one stage but for the price $399 I'm happy. It looks like a creature from Despicable Me.

    4A intake and 5A heads

    Oh, Okay. I had a nice rebuilt and ported set done by a rather well known local Oldsmobile racer Chuck Powell. I have 6 buildings of stuff and I've looked for them and didn't find them.

    4A intake and 5A heads

    I think A4's were on 403's. 307's had like 5a's maybe 7a's but not the same as the 1972 7A's. The 4A's use 1/2" head bolts, not a big deal. Jmo

    Jetstar 1 was a "bad boy" car in its day. One step under the Starfire, only cosmetically not performance wise. I had a chance to buy a 1965 Jetstar 1 4-speed car in the late 90's. The guy wanted an arm and a leg for it, I only had the leg.t Plus back then I had a "ball and chain" she hated old...

    Cars you've sold

    It's been a little sloooow on this forum so maybe this thread will liven it up. Over the years, my car hobby got carried away a bit. I had always planned on selling/downsizing after I retired. Well, I've been retired over 6 years. I've done a little downsizing but not much. The demand for Olds...

    Got my 72 Supreme from its Slumber.

    Jmo, part it out. Your story sounds like Deja vu to me. As I've posted, because of my car hauler and advertising, I was always finding field/project cars. I'd sell a lot but I accumulated a lot also. I had a set of perfect 70/72 doors/fenders/71/72 air induction hood w25? Anyway I came across a...

    My Last Rodeo

    I probably should tell you how it was when I was young. Luckily I had an older Brother that got me interested in cars, he's now deceased and my car hobby interest hasn't been the same since. I literally "push" on. Early 1960s we had an old shed 8X10 with a little pot belly stove that had every...
