Just thought I'd let you folks know about a book I just picked up - Tex Smith's How To Build Chevy Hot Rods by Rich Johnson, ISBN 1878772163.

Since there's been some talk in here about hotrodding the stovebolt, I thought I'd relay that there's a section in the book about this. Including MPFI and blowers. smile

When I bought the book, I was hoping it would have a section on replacing wood floors with steel. If anyone knows of a good resource for this, lemme know.

Stink, another good book is by Corky Bell called "Supercharging" or something like that. He has another book called "Maximum boost" everything you ever wanted to know, but don't try to make any sense out of the equations . . . they have a crappy editor and it is full of mistakes. Best book for late model sixes is by Leo Santucci ("Chevroley Inline Six-Cylinder Power Manual", get it at or from Amazon. Pretty neat stuff . . . never knew I knew so little about engines.

Hey Jeff,

I work at usask... smile Got me a '52 Suburban on the go. I've got spring break week booked off to go out and hide in my garage. Whatcha takin'?

Ken, thanks for the other recomendations. I figured you might be interested in the section I mentioned most but it sounds like you've already done your homework. smile
