    Since a 605 or a CPP500 box have a spline, that's pretty much what you have to use on one end of your rag joint. The other end must match the steering column. Again, no shafts are involved.

    You don't need a shaft at all to correctly mount a 605 steering box, same with CPP and Borgeson.

    The lateral offset of the pinion shaft to the transmission shaft just causes the angle of the u-joints that comes from ride height to be slightly increased. It is not usually a problem unless the...

    Yes there is an adjustment, but it's not on the pump, it's on the power steering valve that's on the end of the steering center link. That's where the power steering hoses connect also. Connecting...

    I think it's very well known what the list of assembly plants was.

    Big block Chevrolet gas engines did not exist in the 55-57 time frame. If the trucks were GMCs they had a six cylinder engine....

    I don't know if I've seen a photo or not, but that's essentially the way it was done. No bumpers though, because they were shipped without a frame - and the bumper attaches to the frame.

    If I thought the voltage limiter might be bad, I would try another used stock gauge.

    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. ...

    You aren't missing anything. Voltage is supposed to be constant, resistance of the sender is the desired variable, and the current is what reads on the gauge movement. An undesired variable is...

    Voltage variation shouldn't affect the gauge output, as a voltage limiter is part of the circuit internal to the gauge. On the other hand, it could be in disrepair.

    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.

    I've heard of the vacuum ashtray, but had no idea the vacuum was supposed to carry away the butts too. Thought it was just for the smoke.
