That's a nice setup and while I'd love to have it on my 406, not for the better part of two grand! And not sure that would even fit under a big block hood!

I've done the whole bolt on package from a reputable dealer and over time reverted back to a pretty much stock configuration. My advice is to do much as Bosshog8 has done, Borgeson, increased...

That's precisely correct except for the small detail that the only instructions I had were from the ring manufacturer. Since I'm not the type to lay blame elsewhere, I just chalked it up to a...

I've owned mine for 40 years and agree with many of the recommendations, especially new bushings but whatever you do there, don't go with urethane. I also wouldn't add a rear sway bar but would go...

I put a March conversion system on my L79 many years ago, probably 20 or so and had no problems with it. I don't remember it being called 'Revolver' but it bolted up and had all the correct...

Interesting thoughts about the cam, could be part of the problem but I've about decided I've got something else going on. I've swapped out the coil and ignition components with no change, plugs and...

Thanks for responding. Let me be clear, there is no hesitation on acceleration at any speed/rpm. The stumble/trailer hitching or whatever one wants to call it is at steady throttle at rpms less...

I'm of the same mind as many respondents...it's not abuse to drive it hard! I bought my 65 at 28 in '76 and have always drove it as intended. I will burn rubber whenever the mood and circumstances...

Okay, no more guessing, I installed a wide band sensor with gauge and while it does indicate I'm lean at low speed, light throttle, it also indicates I'm lean all the way to WOT.

So I've gone...

3 deuces under a small block hood?

I know I've seen at least one setup but it was using the small mushroom style air cleaners which I don't care for and the front one looked bent downward anyway. I'd think some sort of oval shape...

Yes, I see now you recommend a wide band, something I had since forgotten. I guess you have to be close in the first place to use a narrow band.

O2 sensor installed - no voltage!

I finally relented, pulled off the header pipe and welded in a bung for an O2 sensor. I bought the recommended SG12 single wire, narrow band sensor, installed it and went for a ride of several miles...

I'm not familiar with evaporust but if it's like ospho, you can't let it dry on the surface. Nothing will stick to it!
