Not a very prolific forum I guess.

Re: building a back half car...got questions

Thanks, Stimpy, does it matter if the wishbone is on top of the rear or the bottom?

Re: building a back half car...got questions

Well that's my feelings too. So do you think I should still employ engine lateral limiters if I keep the trans mount. Seems to me it would limit the fore/aft movement of the engine/trans during acceleration and deceleration.

Tools

I've got to buy some tools to use on my engine. I need a valve spring checker that will stand up to some pretty heavy springs. And probably something to compress the springs for remove/replace. I have T&D Machine pedistal mount rockers on a BBC. The engine has been setting for about 1 1/2 years and ...

Re: building a back half car...got questions

OK, if you mods think I should start a new thread just say so and I will. I will be using a front engine plate and a mid plate. The mid plate will be a hanger instead of bolting to the body on either side. Front plate will be 1/4" aluminum. Do I still need the mount on the rear of the transmission? ...

Re: building a back half car...got questions

ah, yeah, I've seem these before. I don't have enough room to do that. I think I'm going to do the wishbone for awhile and see how it works out. I'll just add that to my service procedure and go from there. Thanks for the help.

Re: building a back half car...got questions

My frame rails are 24" apart. The diagonal bar would be pretty short which would be good for strength, but would cause the rear end to move sideways a bit more than a longer one. Now I've read and seem some are selling and using an "X" bar between the lower 4-link bars. What is a Watts link, could y...

building a back half car...got questions

I'm in the process of building a 87 Camaro drag car. It has a S&W 4 link back half coil overs, etc. I'm trying to decide what to use for a track locator. I have read and by just looking at it, I thought the wish bone type would be the best. But the guy that is going to install the roll cage says the...

Re: Antrons acident

BP, yes I have read some of the post on this board, but not all. I'm sure you folks have discussed this a lot. Sorry if this is getting tiresome. I don't get here often. Billy Mac, My point exactly. It's a dangerous game no matter what you run for how many feet. Accidents will continue. Forge ahead ...

Antrons acident

With all do respect to Antron, his crew, the lady that lost her life, her family and all involved, it was a terrible tragedy. It should be evident and I'm sure it is, to NHRA that TFD and TFF are both very dangerous classes. It does not matter if you are running 660', 1000' or 1320', things can, do ...
