I believe that the V8 bushing has a 0.672" inside diameter. I think the transmission shaft is 0.668" outside diameter. That makes the free space at about 17.0 mm. From Rockauto: DORMAN 690083 {C...

No, it is not recommended to just swap air flow meters without a change in engine control calibration or strategy. The swap from an old Vane Air Flow meter to a newer Hot Wire Mass Air Flow sensor ha...

I would only worry about 1st gear. If you need too much clutch slip to launch you want a higher ratio than 3:1. Going to 3.31 (43/13) might be good enough. If you liked 3.55 (39/11) in a 3000 # car th...

Some of the gear teeth wear away to razor blades before they break off. Other gear teeth look alright. On both failures (1000 miles and 10000 miles) I had problems with the ignition timing. On the lat...

My distributor gear saga to the best of my knowledge. 10 years ago at 130,000 miles I paid a mechanic to rebuild my 2.3L Turbo engine. He insisted that I replace the oil pump. I went for the stock re...
