    It probably was since a B&B 11" pressure plate bolts to the flywheel with the same pattern as a diaphragm. So it's a bolt in swap. The 67 Camaro I raced way back when had a firewall brace also. ...

    That would be correct on the Long style vs. Borg & Beck. B&B uses a short throwout bearing as does a raised finger diaphragm. A flat diaphragm (which was the original clutch in a trifive) uses the...

    I saw where the upcoming NHRA race at Pomona will not be requiring proof of vaccine. Looks like for now outdoor events won't require that.

    Have you ever had a set of aluminum heads? The ones I've had stay the way they were new, dirt and grime is their main enemy. But that's true of anything.

    AAW includes more components and more terminated conductors. It's best for a nearly stock car.
