My block has a real problem with the rear main seal groove depth. You can see the difference between the seal gaps in these two photos. One side is clearly... Show more deeper than the other. I installed 4 of the new seals and they all leaked. Finally threw in an old rope seal and its tight as a drum and has not leaked a drop. Go figure.
These pulleys fixed my high rpm belt throwing problem. Cost about $7 each.

Its Hurricane season in Florida...again.
If you mount a Hydratech hydraboost on a 67 F-body convertible with a power top you will have to notch the mounting pad to clear the power relay wire.
Another shot of my son's old Z28 with a 455, 5-speed TKO and a 9" rear. Notice the air under both front wheels. He had a 041 cam, Torker II and Holley 750. Car pulled the wheels about 3" everytime. This is a still from a video.
Car is somewhere in Chicago now.
Silly me, I was mispronouncing it as "Cowl Induction" when it was really "cow induction."

Matching dead cam. This is the Crane version of the 041 cam. Over 20k miles and suddenly it went bye-bye.
Correct alignment of the timing chain and sprockets.
This is what a correct alignment looks like at 1am in the morning! No more late night wrenching for me. We actually assembled the 455 this way and went to the track. The car was way down on power so I knew something was up. Sure enough, I messed up the install. Live and learn.
This is the connector on the Mark VIII fan. The middle connector is a dummy.
