M BODY UPGRADE

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on M BODY UPGRADE
A few weeks ago, I picked up a '81 Diplomat /6 2 door. Topped out at 85 mph and the front end had picked up by the time I hit 65 mph. Definitely driving on a cloud.

MOTOR MOUNTS

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on MOTOR MOUNTS
With some free time, I'm building a 360 for my '80 F body. Presently its a 318. Has the factory motor mounts. The 360 should be making abot 450 HP. Looked at Rock auto for new mounts, not just the insulators. They don't show any difference between a 318 and 360. I thought the drivers side mount is different. Whose right?

ISO PUCKS

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on ISO PUCKS
I'm looking to replace the front iso rubber pucks. Have a urathane one and an aluminum one. I'll be fabbing a pair for my next race car project. Can I assume that the puck is just a filler? Can I fab a pair fron delrin or aluminum, depending on what is the lightest, and drill some additional holes to loose a few more ounces? I've already replaced the 5 mph impact systems and fabricating a much lighter front bumper. I'm very weight conscious.

F BODY ROLL BAR

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on F BODY ROLL BAR
Started mocking up my S&W roll bar kit for my '80 Aspen. After tacking in the main hoop, I was looking at where to place the 2 rear bars. Saw 2 F body mustangs that ended where the shocks and 4 links are located.I was going to run then from the hoop to where the truck floor above the rear shackle. Any thoughts? Its about 76" from hope to trunk floor.
