      Maintenance Complete   07/19/2018

       The maintenance went very smoothly. With the recent database problems, a table got very very big, and needed some surgery. You should experience any changes.

  1. Need info and some parts.

    Thanks. I'll take a look at it.
  2. Spark plug wire in bulk

    Welcome, anytime.
  3. Spark plug wire in bulk

    IT's hard to see, but in the first pic you can see a red wire going to the starter, the plug wires and coil wires. There is a wire under the plug wires going to the hot side of the coil and one going to the dist. since this is a points dist. Last pic, I can't see them, but the fuel line and red and black battery cable can be seen through the rear fender.
  4. Spark plug wire in bulk

    Not sure if you can see them in these pics, but that is all phone wire.
  5. Spark plug wire in bulk

    You can get 50 to 100 ft for 5 bucks, unless it went up. Go to Wal Mart or any hobby shop Radios Shack type store or place that sells phones. Get OUTDOOR phone line. Indoor phone line is stranded copper wire and it wont hold when bent into position. Get outdoor phone line, it is solid strand copper and holds position when bent. It's gray on the outside, but slice it open and you have black, red, green, yellow, blue, and white wire inside. Perfect for plug wires and other such wires. The yellow in my role is real pale. I use it to mimic clear hose that turns that yellowish color with age. I run it from the radiator caps to a catch can or just down the side of the rad. I have not found a use for white and green unless you are wiring up maybe an MSD box. Ive used all the other colors for plug wires and grounds and fuel line and brake lines and starter wires, you name it.
  6. Searching for MPC Super Z Camaro

  7. Shelby Cobra 427 SC

    Thanks. Still a good looking build though.
  8. Shelby Cobra 427 SC

    Looks good, just one thing, your linkage for the carbs on the wrong side. Cobra carbs mount backwards with the vacuum secondary pod on the drivers side and the linkage and springs on the passenger side.
  9. Buddy Baker torino

    Bored over 351. They were running 355's and then later on finally settled on a 358 that they still run today.

  11. Tire dry transfers

    https://www.mikesdecals.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=tire+decals&search_in_description=0&osCsid=ovcqnhveksmitkhcv4tr4i3hk4 Mikes has what you need. They are decals instead of dry rub though. Just sand the tires so they look used and real, slap on a decal and flat clear and the edges disappear.

  14. AMT NASCAR/sportsman Nova swap

    Are you sure it's a rear steer chassis? Not sure what year it was, but at some point everyone went front steer no matter what make they ran. Since it's a Nova, wouldn't ya want to use a front steer too since that was stock? Clip the chassis and put the front steer on the rear steer chassis like we do the real cars?
  15. What makes these "Radial" ?

    IF you are talking about the tires, nothing but the words on the sidewall if it even says drag radial on it. Most are more low profile on the sidewall as compared to a real drag slick though. As for a real tire, it's the inner construction. Radial tires have their fabric and metal belts ran from one side of the bead to the other in an X fashion all the way around the tire. That's why you can't tell if they are low on air by looking cause the wont bulge very much even when they only have as little as 10 pounds in them. Bias ply tires have the same cloth or metal belts, but they run from bead to bead in a straight line. That's why they look flat even if they have 40 pounds of air in them, but if you drop that down ten pounds you can defiantly see a bigger bulge in the side wall. Drag radials are not worth much. Not for serious racers. Just made to fit new cars with small wheel wells. They are usually wayy to short in the sidewall to do any good as a drag tire too. They wont wrinkle enough in the side wall for a big high horsepower car. You need bias ply or normal drag tires for high hp cars. The sidewalls wrinkle up on launch cause the tire sticks to the ground as the wheel starts to move and then the tire starts to move as it runs out of sidewall. That way the sidewall takes some of the shock of the launch and it helps to keep the tire from breaking loose and spinning uncontrollably. This is a general answer just to get the point across as simple as I could so don't have a fit from the ones that want to get more technical.
