Re: Is a SB fan shroud really necessary???

Yes!

Without a fan shroud you reduce the effective size of your fan by a third as air slides off the ends of the blades without the shroud to hold it in place.

Re: Mustang II Power Steering Rubber Hose won't be

Don't know about going to China to get them made as most metropolitan areas have truck stops (super centers around crossing interstates) that make similar lines while you wait. If you live in fly...

Re: Mustang II Power Steering Rubber Hose won't be

Power steering hose is steel lined to resist rupturing under the high pressure that they operate under. You can get a DOT hose made at many locations near you (truck stops, tractor supply houses)...

Re: Alternator wiring harness

Wiring harness remains the same. You change the terminal on the end for the different alternator (assume you are thinking about a one wire CS style Delco Remy alternator).

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

You can expect 140 (2 barrel base engine) to 350 horsepower in the Z/28 and LT-1 Corvette with factory heads (three different choices in intake port size and vale diameter). You also have to consider...

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

A 350 can be a high reving 355 for the strip or a 383 stump puller for the street. 1969 means it is a good candidate as it will have a stronger block (newer engines have a weaker block as Chevy...

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

305 is a boat anchor looking for a tramp steamer to claim it. Bores are way too small to make any power. You need a minimum of a four inch bore block (327 or a 350) that you then rebuild as a 383. Or...

Re: 66 V8 Floor Shift Powerglide

All two piece cranks share the same 3⅝" bolt pattern. To this crank you can bolt a 10", 11 or even a 12 inch clutch assembly. The difference in fit is in the bell housing clearance and the starter...

Re: Small block flywheels

You are correct the 168 tooth fly wheel is for big blocks and high horse small blocks using the 11 clutch disc. The Chevy II never had an 11 inch disc and used the smaller 153 tooth flywheel.

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

You can turbocharge any engine, but is the cost worth the return (ROI in business speak). You can find a used 305 for the price of it's scrap value ($8.70 per hundred weight). This will nearly double...
