Both are the same temp, 181 for their respective gauge readings?

That is my goal but with my old small block junk. I'm mostly there, I haven't needed to work on it at the track in a long time, i just have to let go of the safety net of the tool box. I feel it is pretty reliable for having 600ish HP.

I suspect the reason a max effort boosted combo doesn't care about quench is because they are using the appropriate race fuel to support the combo. A pump gas combo doesn't have that luxury.

I stored the wife's 78 Trans Am in an Omni Bag for 10 years changing out the dessicant every few years. It was in her mom's garage that was not heated and it always came out of the bag just as nice as when I put it in. I have no idea if they still sell those though. shruggy

I have access to some mustang ii spindles and brakes, but was curious if the swap was plausible, before pulling stuff apart.

Would a Dr Diff brake kit for Abody spindles solve the problem? Disc spindle or drum? Defeats the purpose of use what you can put your hands on I know.

After breaking in my 451 with Brad Penn, I put in "regular" motor oil with a bottle of ZDDP. So basically there's no hours on it - well, maybe 10-20 mins. of run time. Then it sat in the garage for six months.
But when I pulled the pan to fix the leaks recently, I was surprised at how black the oil was (and I had to wipe a thin layer of black stuff like that to clean the pan out, too). Figured it was the additive. Also I saw a few greenish drops hanging from rod bolt heads shock My heart stopped for a moment - then I tasted it and it's just oily, definitely not antifreeze!

No "blob" like OP's though. shruggy

It’s ringing most of my bells, but looks like I would come short of the consensus value.

First thing I would do is crack the drain plug in the oil pan and see how much green comes out first. Then I'd pressure test the cooling system before I went into panic mode.

They are local to me and great people!

I bought a mild converter from them years ago for the 727 in my Cuda and it worked great.

I went there about a year ago to get my current converter drilled and tapped for the larger bolts and they told me they no longer did Mopar converters.

If I were spraying, I would keep it but I'm naturally aspirated small block. 5.40 in the 1/8th
1.18 60 foot.
Dont want to lose any 60 foot.
I'm sure I'd lose some 330 and 660 as well.

Based on my own personal experiences, I'll always be a FFF.

Heck, I won't use any filter with the FRAM name on it at this point.

I don't track a Mopar myself, but here are some good pics of my brother's stock '68 RoadRunner. Two seasons so far and he's improving nicely..

Is he getting ready to audition for a spot in the Joey Chitwood Thrill show? eek

Sorry, just kidding, everybody has to start somewhere. up biggrin.
