  1. Rack & Pinion

    Suspension - Brakes - Steering
    I have a 52 GMC on a s10 chassis, what can be used for Power Rack, are there any stock systems that will work? Aftermarket? Will manual Rack work well? Thanks
  2. instrument panel

    Have been thinking about using an s10 instrument panel in my 36 chevy. My question is: will the tach from a v6 (4.3) work and be accurate when used with a tech 4 (2.5) ?? The engine,tranny, and computer are out of an 88 s10. The Dash panel is from 97 s10. OBD1 and OBD2

I have a 1985 GMC S15 Jimmy with 2wd project. It has a 2.8 V6/5 speed but that's not why I wanted to post my post. I want to find...

    Hey all, after getting my engine in my truck, got a couple questions I hope to get the answers to in this fine place. First, it is a (supposedly) stone stock late 70s 350, with an Edelbrock Victor intake and a Holley 600. It seems to run okay, not as quick as I think it should be, but I have...
