If you worry about switching noise from the regulator, you could put a capacitor to ground from the power lead, or put a filter choke (an inductor) inline with the power, or both. Perhaps a Corcom...

Typical USA iron block motors can take two over-bores at 30 and 60. If you worry, have your shop do an ultrasonic measurement of the wall thickness in your block. That's a standard service for a...

The OEM pedal frame can also bend. Comes from stomping on the pedal at an angle. These pedals went through several revisions, and '76 is early.

Ford (F-100) wheels will fit the lugs, but make sure the center hole is big enough. In the day they'd use Ford centers for very wide sand buggy wheels, and cut out the center hole. The large center...

Have you located a donor for the 360/A727? I would just copy what I found in the donor. There are many differences between the I6 and V8 vehicles - this has been covered a lot in previous post on...

That part, as in the residual check valves or the combination valve?

Glad to hear you and yours are ok.
