Got the heads on and first coat of paint on the motor. Hope to port the intake tomorrow, already have it marked, and put the second coat of paint on the motor. I done some tradin with a buddy of mine and got a pair of "416" HO heads. Suppose to do some tradin on a 4.3 S10 radiator for a starter I have.

Switched out my BG 220 for the Holly black. The BG started leaking so it got to go. I have read a lot of ppl on here say the Holly is loud. It is much quieter the the BG. I used the supplied rubber mouthing cushion. Power seems equal with no top end lag. We'll see how the longevity is.

A short day at the shop due to cold weather and no helper showing up. I'm replacing the column shifter (from a GM van) for a 700-R4 with a floor-mounted Lokar shifter. The column shifter is worn amnd sloppy and the column is ugly and will eventually be replaced with something more visually appealing. I've had the shifter for a while; no money currently for a column.

I am so cold blooded, I just can't get out to that garage when this house is so warm. What a candy ars guys out in the REAL cold are saying I am sure. But it is all relative, I am cold.

I did my column shopping on evilbay a couple years ago and was able to procure a real nice colum from an '87 olds 442 with a floor shift. With fresh paint it works and looks good in my T-bucket.

It must be my Scandinavian blood, 'cause I don't even put on a long sleeve shirt to go out to the store or to put out the trash unless it is mid 30's or below. I get funny looks walking from my car into Walmart in a T-shirt in January in 36 degree weather.

Me too brother! I do NOT LIKE TO BE COLD! I have a basement that is easy to heat in the winter and stays pretty cool in the summer. Pretty meat.

Don't feel bad I used to own a wizard lawn mower years ago, they also made bicycles when we were kids, owned one of them to. We still have a Western Auto in the next town over here in Maine.

LOL You are too young to remember Mike but "SK Wayne" was a pretty good tool that was sold in the independant Auto parts stores. The same summer I bought that wizard drill I bought my first 3/8 socket set. I checked on the internet and found that SK Wayne was purchased by Dresser ind. who changed the knurled handles on the ratchets and of course dropped the Wayne portion of the name.

Does anyone know if they are still a good tool?

Just found this after a little bit more reading

"Then in June, 2010, the S-K Tool company declared bankruptcy. And then Ideal Industries purchased the name and toolings. Ideal has placed the new S-K Tool Company in Sycamore, Illinois, after building a new facility there. Ideal Industries also plans to utilize one of their divisions, Western Forge (est 1964), for manufacturing some of S-K's tools. It sounds like a good long-lasting and prosperous arrangement.

S-K Tools will continue to be made in the USA for the time being."

I started buying my own tools when I was about eleven a hundred years ago. I still have some of my old Barcalo wrenches and Fleet sockets bought from Pep Boys.

I think it's funny how you guys don't want to work on your cars cause it's too cold, while I'm down here complaining that I don't want to work cause it's too hot! Today is the coldest day we've had in at least a month and it's 75. Feels nice at first until you actually start to do something.

Poor baby. I think you will get a lot of sympathy from the guys on here.
