Here's a link to another one that is supposedly V code also in FK5 at the bottom of the page. Looks like it has black interior. I wonder if it's the same car before the restoration? I'd be surprised if more than one of the 29 total were this color, but I guess you never know.

I thought the T/A Fast Ratio made it 12.7:1?

Yes... the internal PS box ratios are actually all the same... the difference comes from the longer arms.

The factor screwed up on the E-bodies and didn't install the correct matching longer Idler arm (~70-C-Body.... aka Fast Ratio Idler)... to match the longer "FAST RATIO" Pitman Arm.

Regardless, add a smaller diameter steering wheel and you'll experience quicker steering yet!... and have the PS box rebuilt to tighter specs (IE: FF Stage 2 or preferably Stag-3).

I've been looking at a Mercedes on CL. The pictures show a lot of "fog" on the upper surfaces of the paint. My understanding is that if it is single stage paint, it can probably be buffed out. But a clear coat means a paint job. Does anyone know what the '83 MB used?

On getting the right length read the B3 raceing info on their site. In a nutshell you want a 90 deg (right) angle (valve to rocker) at 1/2 cam lift to give you the most area under the curve to get the most out of your cam choice. On the other side Hughes has pushrod to rocker angle article.

I'm more seriously starting to grind on my stock dual plane intake. I plan on running in the FAST class at some point.

I've extensively searched for any good port pics from anyone who's ever extensively ported a dual plane intake. I've found plenty of pics of plenum work but, no good pics of port work. I'm interested to see how deep most are able to get down into the ports.

I don't care if the pics are of an aftermarket intake or stock. Does anyone have any they can post?

Thanks!

Yes get a generic collar which will be tighter radially than the OE collar (unless you want it 100% OE). While you are at it reduce the axial clearance to .005" & speedway mtrs has a kit of flat washers for dirt cheap ($4.99 iirc + the ride).

I had Carlisle 10 ply on my overloaded 24 foot enclosed trailer with 5-10 pounds over what was listed on the sidewalls and had lots of luck with them. My new 26 foot trailer is now rated just under 10,000 pounds and has 16 inch tires on it.

Those are the lower ears I put on when I built it. Boxing in the mount is not a bad idea with the amount of stiffness I can get with the qa1 adjustables

I'm sure someone will like the title and tag. Has the trans and all the 4 speed stuff, 8.75 (2), driveshaft seat frames if not rusted out, not likely but what if the trunk lid is workable, the bottom of the door in trunk looks good. There's stuff there but it would have to be delivered to even consider the $1200 much less the $1500 it's at now. twocents

If you want to run a motorplate with a hellcat front cover, we have that program on our waterjet along with the earlier gen3 motorplate patterns. Mike

Doc used to do some road racing at Mid Ohio, too. I remember him as a really cool guy.


Jeff Dunham, the ventriloquist, bought the burnt orange superbird the doc owned.

Anybody have a picture of this weather strip? Bought replacement strip but can’t get to fit,just want to make sure it’s the correct one.
This is for a 2 door sedan but I’m sure 4 door style is the same.
