    Oil pump driveshaft failure

    I swear this car is cursed, or just flat out hates my guts. I'm on the verge of solving my electrical gremlins and this shit happens. Not really sure what to do about this, engine is fresh built with maybe 5k miles on it. Full rebuild with all new bearings at the bare minimum i suspect.

    My alternator isn't putting a charge into the batt, it's a brand new alternator and the batt load tested good. It started when I did a hard pull earlier today. Swapped out the alternator with a known good one and still not charging. The yellow/green wire from the alt is getting 12v from the...

    Timing issues

    Today on the way to work i did a quick 1-2 pull and i felt a little bit of misfire at the higher rpm. After that the car startes bucking at cruising speed but smoothens out when i give it 20% throttle or more. I reset the base timing last night because my cps had moved a little bit. After i had...

    7m to 2j mani... Why not?

    I know theres like one of these threads made every month asking if the 2 mani will bolt on the 7m. Then a few comments of "you can cut the runners and weld them together, but its a hackjob." How come no one has made a decent 7m to 2j intake manifold adaptor? Seems like it would be super cheap...
