Cylinder head decision for 318

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Cylinder head decision for 318
As I have posted before, I plan on using a huges whiplash camshaft in my 318, the engine is a 1974 production and I am thinking about changing the heads. The only concern is the whiplash cam works well with stock compression and Im not sure how much more compression will rise with a set of performance heads.

Two hole firewall grommet

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Two hole firewall grommet
I'm looking for a two hole firewall grommet like this:
View attachment 973911 . It's about 2" long and goes in about a 3/4" hole. It is used to route the climate control switch vacuum wires thru the far left side of the firewall. It might have also been used to route large wires thru the firewall on some cars as well.

Thank you.

Anybody know Variable Frequency Drives ?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Anybody know Variable Frequency Drives ?
I'm getting a real mill, my Rung Fu is gonna have to say good bye...

So the new (used) mill has a 2 hp 3 ph 220v 6.5 FLA motor.... My shop naturally has single phase power.... I've been told I need to up size the VFD but that you can buy to big of a VFD also....

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Pocket knifes & LEOs?
In my ever expanding search for a nice EDC blade that is fully ambidextrous (im a lefty) and not some POS from china i am left with very few options.
