  1. HELLO SCACER 1. HOPING YOU HAVE THINGS SORTED OUT WITH YOUR CARB. I PLAN ON USING THE SAME HOWARDS CAMSHAFT AND A 750 OR 780 HOLLEY 4150 SERIES OF SOME SORT. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU HAVE BEEN ABLE TO "TRY OUT" YOUR COMBO YET, AND HOW IT PERFORMS. I WILL BE USING MINE IN A 73 COUGAR CONVERTIBLE, C6 2500-3000 STALL 3.89 GEARS. THANKS!
  2. Sounds like the consensus seems to be in my favor with no clearance issues so far. I was hoping for a simple drop in fit for the rotating assy with no problems with interference anywhere, including the cam. Seems like there is interference with some combos though. Do any of you guys have an approximate price for modifying the heads for studs and guide plates? I am located a little southwest of Fort Worth Texas in a little town called Granbury. I am a retired pilot with a little grease under my fingernails and occasionally I mix up a little bondo and straighten a fender or two!
  3. Just getting started on this. It will be a 73 cougar convertible with the 71-72 front end, red/white leather. planning on selling when I finish. I have a 70 Mach 1 428CJ numbers matching that I ordered July of 69. That will be my keeper. Closed quench 4V iron heads from a 70, probably an edelbrock Air Gap with some kind of engineered Ram Air. A fairly mild Hydraulic Roller for the street, A C6 with about 2200-2500 stall, 3.89 gear in back. details are still coming though.
  4. Building a 383C stroker with the 3.75 scat kit. it uses the 6.125 H beam rods with the 14212 Probe pistons. It will be going on a 73 4 bolt oem block. I believe it will be a drop in kit. Does anyone have any experience with this combo as to clearance issues? Is a small base circle cam required for clearance with the rod bolts. Thanks!
