Looking For Dragster Tow Eyelets

I think that’s what they are called. I see a number of dragsters with them. They are the ones that attach to the top of front wheels spindle using the 4 bolts. Used to connect a tow strap. I assume they are all standard, just can’t seem to find them. Looked on Jegs and Summit but I must be searching...

Re: Stock BBC block Oil Pressure Port Question

Both holes have threads but no oil passage hole on the upper right and left of the big hole. I guess I will get the fittings and use the big one.
Huh? Mine must have been drilled at some point by a machinest. That's where my oil pressure guage is.

Re: Stock BBC block Oil Pressure Port Question

Can you run oil pressure gauge to this or is there another port for the gauge ?
The port slightly above and to the right in the attached picture is also an oil port. This is typically the one that is used becasue it's a smaller port and more easilly fits the line you would be using.

Stock BBC block Oil Pressure Port Question

Hi All, Hoping someone can help me ID a port on a stock BBC block. In the attached picture, is this an oil port and if so, is it pressurized with filtered or non-filtered oil? The reason I'm asking is I'm planning to install an oil accumulator and really don't want to install an adapter. My engine d...

Re: Question About Borla Collector Muffler

YES The Borla's work....So do the Dyna-max version but they are MUCHO cheaper. Either will give a rich, throaty sound....AND they both will appease the sound police.... :wink: I was wondering if the Borla was any quieter than the Dyna-max becasue they are stainless. Does anyone know if the Flowmast...

Re: Question For People Using Gas Primers For Methanol

You can get enough heat in the engine in say 45-50 degree weather on alcohol alone?

Question For People Using Gas Primers For Methanol

Hi All, For those people that use gas primers to warm up their methanol engines. Has anyone built their own that is controlled electronically by the pump? I know you can use a Primer Plus from Ron’s but the flow control is mechanically controlled at the intake manifold and can’t be tuned from within...

Question About Borla Collector Muffler

Hey All, Has anyone done any real world testing of these things? How much do they really quiet your car down? How much did they hurt performance? My Camaro had very limited clearance and although I have tried to fit a muffler under my car there is no way without modifying the chassis. Right now I’m ...

I've found that the biggest thing the milks the oil is burbling around at idle - especially if you have the barrel valve set fairly rich at idle - and of course it's worse when the engine's cold. If you get the motor warmed up and don't drive it around too much, the oil will last longer. I don't ru...
