I agree you shouldn't need an octane booster (if that's what you meant by additive), I use Stabil for winter storage. I have had carb corrosion from long term octane boost usage (probably related to...

Newb, I feel your pain. I've did several stock and performance builds back in the 80-90's and things went pretty smooth, fast forward to my 427 Tri-power rebuild/upgrade to 460 and in the second...

If you were in state I'd be handing you a set a slicks for that thing (from a low 11's Chevelle, bolt right up) and I'm thinking on a good air day you'd be near the 150 mark looking at the dyno sheet...

I would guess new Motor Mounts will solve the issue as the rubbing is a classic symptom of a broken drivers side mount (if the car has always made the noise there may more troubleshooting involved),...

MIG welding steel is very easy to learn, a class would be great if you've never done any welding. I'd say if you are able to read instructions (setting controls on the welder) and are a visual...

The Brake Light Switch is probably stuck due to crud, it should return to center when you push hard on the pedal.

Depending on Torque of the 502, you will be able to destroy the trans and rear end/axles if you use sticky tires. If you're happy with the 350, a stout 383 will cost a lot less, let you run sticky...

Probably date codes, you can check these with a hand vac. pump to see how close to the rated (6.5") vac. the valve actually opens at. I've only seen them off if they are really old and the rubber...
