The Dynacorn replacement metal parts are actually as good, or better than original. They use a more modern steel (that's actually high quality) and some of the parts are a little heavier gauge than...

It might be the problem, or part of it. You might also have stuck pistons. In either case, you need to run a disc m/c with discs.

You have to use a disc m/c with disc brakes. Some drum m/c's have a residual pressure valve to counter the force of the return springs in drum arrangements to prevent low pedals when you reapply the...

Could always use c-clip eliminators. For a street car without crazy suspension floating calipers work great. They actually work on street/track cars too with a bit of extra maintenance, but since the...

I'm more concerned with pad knockback. When you start doing serious cornering on pavement, c-clip axles generate a lot of pad knockback and give you a low brake pedal. That's why most of the race...

Wilwood has a lot of replacement calipers. You'll spend more than you would on typical parts store junk. NAPA generally carries good quality stuff as well.

Even if you're not going to race, brakes...

On the matter of 1.6 vs 1.7, it's slightly more complicated than just resulting in increased lift. It also increases valve acceleration, because for any given part of the slope that results in...

Yeah, performance can be subjective, especially when talking about bottom end and street manners.

Looks like it includes the link bar style lifters. Lunati is currently having them manufactured by Morel, which is why they're pricey. But they're really good quality lifters.

1/8 of a turn on the distributor is ****ing HUGE for timing. That's literally a change in timing of 90*.

If the pistons are too tight you'll know, when you pull the heads the cylinders you can see...

That 270hr is a good cam that makes a lot of power in many applications; and it's not too hard on the valvetrain either.

The advantage of the 351/HO firing order was improved load distribution on...

Your timing is probably way the **** off. Put a timing pointer on it and fix your timing (which is probably really high atm).

A lot less than 12.5:1 most likely, with iron heads it would have probably detonated a lot, even on premium.

And milling heads can effect rocker geometry if you take enough off. It'll be more of...

Running warmer at a stop is a fan/shroud issue, and yeah, you don't need to worry about overheating until you get upwards of 230* (unless you get detonation before then).

Inspect them, make sure the pistons aren't stuck, and the hardware is returning the shoes back to resting position. Probably burnt up the shoes on that 1 side though.

The Lunati might not be too great with a 3.00 gear and average compression. The Comp cam will be a bit torquier down low, should work fine with 1.7 rockers also.

You don't really want ladder bars on a street car. Also, ch-mo for a cage is overkill unless it's a really fast race car, mild steel is fine (and you can go 4 or 6 pnt, no need for 10).
