23 T-bucket

I was told my rod has a 3000 stall kit on it. What does that mean?

Don't let the engine get over 3000 RPM or it will stall???

That, or it might be a torque converter which is designed to allow the RPM to go to 3000 with your foot on the brakes at the starting line, thereby putting the engine into it's power band from the get go.
nice looking T BTW.

This is the theoretic point where the torque converter will stop the engine from revving any higher without the car moving(Transmission turning). The number is more of a reference than a true number in most cases as a 3000 rpm stall will work different behind a small block VS a big block and will be different in a light car VS a heavy car.
In a T-Bucket the car is so light that if you don't raise the stock stall speed you will need to stand hard on the brakes at a light to keep the car from moving.
I have a 2400 in my t-bucket and it made it a lot easier to control at the traffic lights.
Stock stall is around 1100-1200 I believe.
