That's the one, sorry to hear about your friend, my Special is up and running, got the usual rattles and clunks need to tighten things down and drive it til I can chase down everything that's loose, maybe next year, keep in touch for updates on the Buick, later, George
I hope your friend feels better, I'm going to the G.S.T.A. show later this month at the Collisium in the Minnesota State Fairgrounds with Jon Kosmoski to debut his '34 Phaenton, you see it under the plastic cover in my latest pics I've posted, there will be more posted before and after the show.
Things have been about as well as they can be! Good to hear from you hope all is well on your end! Been pretty busy lately with all sorts of different things happening, hopefully soon I will be getting a little bit more of a break so I can get some new postings and Pic's up on here! I'll be talking to all of you guys again real soon!
As far as steering wheels with airbags go, there isn't too many choices. Because of liability issues with the bags, nobody is willing to tackle it. The cost of the insurance to produce 'em would be crazy! Most guys I have seen just remove the bags and wheel, and install an aftermarket wheel. Not real good for safety, but if you're going for pure looks... Another option is check with Grant. They make some steering wheel covers that don't look bad. The leather wheel in my Mustang was worn, and they wanted a LOT for a new one. So I got a Grant cover for about $50 and it's all good.
You are right Kevin, Maybe I could jump back in and at least offer a different perspective without p****** too many people off...LOL Sorry to say, I can't find your engine specs, however, if you would get them to me once again, I will look in to a few cam options for you.
Hey Kevin, How have you been?
Regarding that 12:1 engine suggestion, it is obvious that the guy knows and understands engine building, however, to suggest such a package and then state how he thinks the system can be beat for smog controls is JUST WRONG in my opinion.
I started to help the guy out and then basically got jumped on, so, I backed out to see where this leads. Don't know how I would be interpeted if I jumped back in now and made different suggestions?
Maybe I will just to read the other guys comments about me...LOL
As for your cam on the Pro-Charger Engine, what specs were you looking for? If I can be of help...just let me know
