I run 60/40 water/coolant, and I use universal long-life coolant designed for engines with high aluminum composition, as well as a bottle of water wetter. A 50/50 mix will get you better corrosion...

How so? Do you have an accurate temp gauge? If it's running between 195 and 210, you're in pretty good shape.

Staggered vs inline has to do with your current hose configuration. You need to look at your current radiator inlet/outlet to see if they're both on the same side, or on opposite sides.

Do you...

Actually, many higher end aftermarket performance coils require a full 12V supply. This is the only way they can make their advertised secondary voltage. They may operate on lower primary voltage,...

I thought that was a bit low as well, but I don't think it'd cause a complete no-fire situation. I still suspect the coil, module, or pickup as the culprit.

Do you have an old distributor to...

Yes and no. Technically, CA requires that you leave all original emissions equipment (which includes the PCV breather hose) attached, beginning with CA cars in 1966.

That said, that is the only...

Exactly, butcharndt. Screw the studs into the heads and leave them there, and use nuts to secure the valve covers. Lets you set the covers on without having to worry about all the holes lining up.

I'd only recommend a 9" if you really need the extra torque capacity. I have a pretty stout 331 and my 8" handles it just fine.

An 8.8" is a good upgrade for a 67-68 car (and possibly 69-70?)...

Depends on the type of valve cover you have. If you have factory stamped steel valve covers, I recommend cork. The ones with the integral washers to prevent over-torquing are nice. A very thin...

That's what the hammer is for;) Really, there's not much you can do aside from beating up your existing headers or replacing them.

+1 on the starter solenoid.

Be sure to get a quality replacement. BWD (or Napa's Echlin line, which come from the same Standard Motor Parts factory) are good quality. Stay away from everything...

We definitely need more information to help you out.

What engine/cam?

What transmission?

What kind of driving do you do? In-town? Freeway? Combination? Street/Strip?

For simplicity and functionality, I really like clutch fan setups. They're still used on many vehicles today. Efficient, relatively quiet, and not terribly expensive.

If you want to go electric,...

I would use softer strut rod bushings, or upgrade to spherical-bearing strut rods. Overly stiff strut rod bushings can result in broken stock-style strut rods.

"620" springs are often .620" diameter, not 620 lbs. Have to be careful while looking at options. I have the Grab-A-Trak .620" springs (which are roughly 480-500 lbs) and I love them. Stiff enough...

Any parts store should have that gasket. It's just a fiber gasket, nothing special. Same gasket for 302/351W.

Barnett, I'm fairly sure shouldered rocker studs didn't start until '68. My factory '67 heads definitely had adjustable rockers.
