  1. Our engine builder(now retired) had me use straight 30 non detergent for break in. Been running regular 10w40 ever since. Put about 25k on that engine so far and the oil pressure is just as good as day 1
  2. Not likely-the longer 6 requires a slightly different dist.
  3. It's special when talking about the B series as it was introduced for the last year. You are right it then continued into the 80s when they stopped making flare side boxes.
  4. I believe Dads 51 ply convert it just runs under the carpet/flooring
  5. Also remember you are hooking up an auto choke in a vehicle that didn't come with one. Do you have the car carb or the original from your truck?
  6. So I'm 3 years past the suburban club. Mine is a 64 belvedere
  7. congrats that one looks like a nice buy. I'm trailing behind with only 1 wagon(when did they stop being suburbans?)
  8. I don't seem to have any car ones on hand but the two trucks one I have look different from yours but still measured 8 and 9 inches.
  9. Dad and I swapped an overdrive into a 51 dodge with gyromatic. Needed the long input shaft on the OD standard linkage for shifting and I believe an extension for the parking brake cable.
  10. Brad how much do you trust this shop? The reason I ask is I had 2 radiators tested for my 47 truck build. They told me both were full of holes and would require a few $100 dollars to repair. So I figured I'd just go new aluminum since I'm not doing a restoration. In the meantime I wanted to test run the engine so I figured even a leaky radiator would work for short term. I put in one of the ones they tested and never saw it leak a drop.
  11. Getting close. First test fitting on the actual truck. Now winter has come in MN so the truck is back outside. So far it hasn't gotten snowed on so if that holds I might be able to sneak out for a little more work.....
  12. This does make me wonder now if the car ones which are taller and have a brace to the head might also be smaller circumference.....
  13. that is hard to say as there are many styles over the years.
  14. Option 5) find or make an aircleaner that fits over both. Think an oval with maybe an oval or 2 circle filters inside
