hey everyone, i am new to the inline engine, but have some experience with older 60's chevy trucks. i just bought a 62 c10 in december, and i have spent some time going through and updating and cleaning a number of things on my truck. beyond that, i hope to keep her running till i cant hold my ratchet any longer. (hopefully, that's a long way off)

since i am relatively new to inlines, but know engines in general(i mean how they operate) i might post retarded questions, so please bear with me. either way, hope to hear much wisdom!
