Barry.We have had a boat load of combo's over the yrs.The reason why is we have a racing operation turn into a business where we where racing a 9.90 car for a yr and flip selling them. before this came to past we had a 69 Camero that we ran with BBC's in it.We went through hard times with that having 5 different BBC engines in the car in 4 weeks.All of them damaged beyond repair.We sold everything,car,trailer,parts,everything except the tools and seat out from active racing for two yrs.During that time we still,well really developed,a trade in selling parts and realized a market for selling the race cars.But those hard times almost ended active racing for us.

When we came back on line with a race program we still feeling the sting from BBC's started back using SBC's.

Here my point.All those engines and up to last season's BBC 632 and the yr before back-up 565 BBC,all we used was Kings bearings without a single failure. It is that company that we used for all the hard core race engines we have built for people over the yrs as well.It's for that reason I have such a strong endorsement for that company. Also we have won a national and a whole bunch of track and regional events with them doing hot laps in the finals.
