  2. Nailhead weight

    Removing the trans cross member seems a logical move,it will allow the tail shaft to pivot as you lift the engine. By removing the radiator and grill the angle to lift will be less acute
  3. Nailhead weight

    The engine and trans are easier to install for me if they are one unit, I`m done with wrestling under a car with a trans. As I have limited room in my single car garage the engine will be moved into storage till it mates up with the trans down the road after the rebuild. At 61 I still think having a concrete floor is a luxury !
  4. Hi fellas, I am pulling my motor and trans this winter to repair my trans. I will be putting my engine on a stand while the trans is worked on. The stands I can buy or borrow are rated for 1000 lbs. Does anyone have an idea how much a 425 Nailhead weighs ?

  11. I`ve always been fond of Supreme wheels on a Riviera , I have `66 road wheels on my `64 and have grown to like them mainly because they fit without any drama and look good and at this time , they fit the budget. Now, if I fall into a bucket of cash, I`ll be rethinking those sexy Supremes
