Ordered new headman headers and gear drive starter from sumitt. cant wait to install, old headers have holes. ceramic coated also. see what kind of temps i get then. tried to get R.A.R.E manifolds, but they won't email back.. so went with headers again...
Hello Finally starting to rebuild my motor and just starting to start putting parts for sale on here. Can someone give a honest opinion on how much I can possibly sell these heads for. I think they came from a 1970 400. For some reason it not letting me attach my photos. if you provide me email I can send photos Thanks
If you want to drive it often I would jack it up and remove the rear wheels. Then have a friend start it up and put it in drive and get it up to where it should be vibrating. Watch the drums and see if everything runs out smoothly. Also it is possible a balancing weight came off the drum. A good machine shop should be able to check balance on the drums. Hope this helps.
Bad idea running the speed up to 55 MPH with nothing holding the drum on the car.
I ended up ordering a 4 leaf set from Eaton Detroit, was torn between a 1” raise or a 2” raise, then when talking to them, they said they can also do .5” increments, so I split the difference and went with a 1.5” raise, hopefully it gets me close to how it’s sitting now.🤷🏼♂️ Have till Monday to change it, so I’m trying to figure out for sure this weekend if that’s what I want and if I need to change.
When looking through the 68 Brochure, they sure do seem low in the rear, has me wondering if I shouldn’t go with the full 2”??
