    Re: Oil usage and detonation problems solved.

    Re: Oil usage and detonation problems solved.

    I'm thinking about unshrouding the chambers. I need to pick up 15 cc's. My head gasket is Cometic .084. Maybe they make a thicker one. I used 3.530 for the gasket opening. I have a .014 deck but I...

    I appreciate that offer. I have an idea that might be easier for you to verify from your memory of when you replaced your lines on the Omni. My car is on jack stands right now. I can take pictures of...

    Interesting article, I've got a 557 on my cam which I got from Jackson, probably 89-92 vintage. But I still need the cam specs. Does any one have them.
