    Lean burn delete. Wiring clean up

    So one of the prior owners either did or had done a delete. Should have made this a better running car but whoever did the wiring was a hack. And that is being nice. They used wire nuts and lamp cord to do this. And I'm thinking at this point the poor connections are causing my hard starts and...

    Does anyone remember this ?

    So this is from the April 2002 Popular Hot Rodding. Was an idea section on remodeling some 80s cars. Loved this concept. Part of the reason i had always wanted one and why i bought the one i did. Does anyone know if anyone tried to follow this and build it as it was conceptualized?

    question about the 7.25

    yes I get it they are junk. everything I can find about them says the weak spots are the carrier bearings and spider gears in non posi's. is it worth the time/money/effort to bother upgrading one to be a posi and changing the gear set? seems like there are carriers and gears galore on ebay for...

    Redhead steering box

    Has anyone used them or know of someone that has? I was recommended them from a co-worker. Said he has had less problems in his truck with it then another one with a borgeson unit. I was just going to use a unit from rockauto since they are cheap, but you get what you pay for. Thoughts?
