If the raised surface that a tapered nut entered are destroyed, perhaps the wrong nuts were used plus someone with an impact wrench used it improperly. If the studs are not rigid, it is time to get new 9/16(the next size larger) bolts, use a careful

These engines generate lots of waste heat. The more work the engine does, the more waste heat is generated and it has to be eliminated. If your system is challenged because of some problems, it will overheat as more power is applied. By the way the w

I thought the pitman arm could really only go on one way? On my '50 the shaft has 3 splines that are wider than all the others, and I have to align the arm with those to get it on. If the '54 gearbox is the same as the '50 gearbox, there are no in

I take you are talking about when it goes into OD which is D. Is your car a highway driver (lower rpm torque) or high performance? You can use a formula to see rpms at a certain speed. https://www.ringpinion.com/calculators/Calc_RPM.aspx 1:1 in

Get an original-style 1950 water pump and relocate it with this adapter. Make sure all pulley widths match. Use a 0-4 psi radiator cap.

I have a rebuilt 200-4r from a project I gave up on. I'm considering putting it in my '56. Do you think my rear end is too high geared for such an application?

When I bought my '51 chevy, the interior and exterior looked great but the engine compartment still had the original 1951 oil and grease everywhere. I took off the generator, intake and exhaust manifolds and the distributor. Scrape all the big stuf
