    Many, many kits out there. The basic disc brake upgrade would be caliper brackets, rotors, and calipers. The rotors and calipers should be the replacement parts for a 69-72 Chevelle. Those are the...

    A 30-30 Duntov cam is noisy, I thought many liked that. Just like they like the random misses at idle. And I agree with markm, you don't have to adjust the valves often. It's just not necessary.

    I don't think you'll find any cold lash specs. What you do is set the initial lash with an educated guess and then when warmed up, check and set again. There is a difference but it's not spec'd and...

    Depends on the gasket. If it's a common composite replacement gasket, it's dry. If it's a metal gasket, then you need a sealer like K&W Copper Spray or Permatex Hi Tack. Others, see the...

    Permatex #2 works well too, but the aviation sealer might be a little less messy.

    Loctite/Permatex has a sealer product that should work well too.

    Factory angle is 4° down. Stick with it, as that is what determines the clearance and fit of the transmission to the floor pan and transmission tunnel.

    This has nothing to do with the oil pan...

    I don't know how you do much with a bench grinder and a file. A cutoff wheel makes more sense to me except for the last little bit removing the inside radius. I'd want my raw stock to be thicker...

    The Jamtac style conductors are not known for reliable use, and at best the pieces in the door and the A pillar must line up with accuracy which is difficult.

    The pan will fit and not interfere with the crossmember if your engine mounts are fitted correctly. It will be closest at the front pan bolts.

    Timo, what you want on the mount for the upper bar is for the bar to be parallel to the lower bar when viewing from the side. It's difficult to tell from your video whether you have that or not.
