Jan,

Cool tank project.  I too like the cool factor of the Pontiac cammer, but agree the Toyota will make a bunch more HP...  Either choice it looks like a cool project.

Good luck

What ever you put in it for power it is going to be TIGHT!!! That is a pretty small package to get all of the required "parts" and a driver into. Your build is going to be fun to watch. Keep us posted!!!!

I would check that MAS axel out. Mine had to have considerable straightening. However was a  6"dropped
one. King pin inclination was not the same side to side and one side was 1/2" adhead of the other.

if you  put a new axel in a car before the car and parts are painted or powder coated the car should be taken to a front end alignment shop and have the axel tweeked until every thing is right then disassemble for paint -----------------------------willie buchta

sometimes its better to go to a truck alignment shop they are more familiar with solid axels

Jan, what's the car in your avatar?  Looks like a late-40's Pontiac "fastback".  I'd like a full-size photo of it -- since a '48 Pontiac was the first car I spent lots of time working on, driving, even learning how to build a straight-8 engine.  Have you a good photo?  Thanks.

Well, I was close -- Chevy and Pontiac were very close back then.  Thanks for the big photo -- I'm going to send it to my dad as a reminder of the cars we used to have.  No flame jobs on ours, though. . .

That car looks familiar.  Then I remember that my mother had one when I was a little child.  It was light green without the flames.  Those cars have a lot of room inside.  Its nice to see one on the road and looking good.
