Slow down a bit, and get the car moving so you can evaluate your combination and improvements.

What is your intended use for the car(will it see highway crusin', back and forth to work, is fuel economy a concern at all?) Choose your gearing based on this. build the motor to emphasize torque, the T/A isnt exactly a light car.

Before you take advice or buy parts from Mondello Performance Parts, do a web search on the current owner's business practices, so you know what you might be getting into.

there are many other Olds specific Vendors across the country that can give better advice and get the same parts

What part of the country(world?) do you live in? We can get you the names of some of the closer Olds specialists

Joe Mondello's family is not associated with, nor recommends buying from MPP.

Joe's Technical School is still operating in Tennessee(His family still owns this)

Cloyes True Roller is a good quality timing set for the Olds. Make sure you degree your cam.
