is it just the pic, or does the right rear tire have some funny tread in the middle?
it almost looks like it has a broken belt?
or is it just dirt?

Matt,

Thanks for noticing that. I got out in the garage this morning and looked at the tire again. It's fine. Maybe a little over inflated, but what I think you were seeing in that particular pic was some kitty litter that I had thrown down on the driveway after an oil spill and it the tire is sitting right on it. Creates the illusion that the tire looks bigger in that one part of the center section. Thanks again tho.

Brent

Well not much accomplished last week. Just been ordering parts for the 350.

Got the chrome goodies in this week along with my SCAT flexplate. I have the SCAT rods, Speed Pro pistons and rings, along with a Summit SFI 18.1 harmonic balancer on order. Hopefully most of it should be here by the weekend. Then it's off to Keith Mauldin's shop for a top notch balance job.

Also called up Lunati today and they are going to custom grind me a solid roller cam for the small block. Should have that and the lifters ordered by the beginning of next week.

Finally determined that I am going to have to order a new 48" straight axle for it with new spindles for my disc brake conversion. That will be another $1000, but oh well. Want it done right the first time. Guess I will be working alot more overtime.







SCAT flexplate.







Chrome goodies to help make it look purty.




I will post more pics as the goodies start coming in.
