    Fan Too Close ???

    Trying to make up my mind on this distance. Worked out at 3/4" at the bottom, 1-1/2" at the top. Leave it or shorten the fan extension?

    Break-In Oil Additives

    If I'm useing a break-in oil for the first start up, do I need to use an additive too? (Hydraulic flat tappet build). Would that be overkill? Also how long do you leave the break-in oil in the engine? I've heard some say just for the 20min. cam break-in. I'm going with a semi synthetic oil...

    Big Block Dampner Choices

    I have a, like new, Professional Products #90013, and have heard a lot of negatives about them. So I'm changing my mind about useing it. It's just a mild build 440, forged crank.

    Sometimes It's The Smallest Part

    What's the smallest part that left you sitting on the side of the road, or gave you a fit, trying to fix a problem? Or in my case, trying to finish a build. I finished all of the machine work on my heads in order to change to a different spring. Had to wait for a back ordered set of springs...

    2005 Chrysler Rear Strut Mounts !

    Started hearing a rattle coming from the back of my 2005 Sebring. Turned out it was the upper strut mount. They are made of magnesium and just completely disintegrate into nothing! Found the replacements at Advance Auto for $27 and come with new rubber. They are made of aluminum and are...

    Auto-Trans Expert Needed

    I know this isn't the right year vehicle to discuss but I cannot get a straight answer anywhere. 2003 Dodge Ram, 2500, Hemi, overdrive automatic trans. My truck might sit for a couple of weeks at a time. I'll start it up and while idling, trans fluid will travel up the dip stick tube and spill...
