Sorry bout that man, my bad. They must have changed the accepted head list when I wasn't looking. LOL

Thanks Will..
Forwarded over to the person who is fixing up the frame.
Have a Budd Rowe 350/255 that had built a few years ago.
But think I have an early cam in it.

I really like that low first gear in the Jerico.
Have 5.13 with a new Moroso Posi and Summers Axles.
TurboAction auto and TCI Converter.
But may buy a new ATI set up.

GM car was upgraded with a 427/335 and 390 over the 396.
Though a 396/265 with a 2v was available.

I can not imagine a 12 bolt living long is a big heavy stick car.

Ed...
I think Will has the right set up using an Aluminum Flywheel and Clutch in his BB.

His comment about "the hit" and too violent of a hit is the clue.
With some of the new converters that have a hard STR rate I see the same TOO MUCH HIT. Especially on some lighter cars.

The nice thing on our Plus Sized Cars is that we have real 4-link suspension.
The weakness are the attach points on the Frame.

For some reason when properly stripped they can get fairly light even with BB.

Will what was the lightest weight you got your car?

Dan

Tom , most (if not all ) of the 12 bolt cars had the 4 arm suspension.
Most of the 10 bolts did not, although I have seen some 10 bolt 4 arms.
The holes are all there in the upper cross member, so the 4 arms bolt right in...
