Hello. I am a new member here, though I’ve been reading posts through searches for a little while. I recently re acquired my dads 51 3100 that I drove in high school. A 25 year dream come true for me. Currently it has a full pressure 235, 3 speed with overdrive and rear end from a bel air. FI Tech fuel injection on a Clifford intake. It has an original set of Fenton headers and an original Fenton valve cover. Looking forward to all the knowledge that is here.

Happy Thanksgiving and Welcome to Stovebolt. Nice to hear your truck has been in the family. You will find answers to any question you may have in the Garage forums. Just pick the forum that best fits your problem and we'll do the rest.

I see your just up the road in Asheville. If your down here near Spartanburg (actually Boiling Springs) look me up and we can get some BBQ or a good hot dog and cold Pepsi. Treats on me!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Welcome Sludge! With history like that, as well as how the truck is set up, it seems like you probably have a lot of knowledge yourself to share! Thanks for joining in -- I look forward to learning what you have to share with us!

Welcome to the "BOLT". I know there will be a lot of questions headed your way about the fuel injection. Many of us here have discussed it but only a few are brave enough to cross over and try it.


Come,Bleed or Blister somethings got to give!!!
