  1. It's better at blowing header gaskets. You can get a much better selection of chrome valve covers from autozone. 1 word, Edelbrock. It doesn't have any of those unamerican metric bolts. SBC wins points at the car show all day every day. Dale Earnhardt didn't have no stupid LS in the old number 3.

    I’ve got an M8 helicoil kit, but only have 10mm long inserts left. You’ll probably want 16-20mm inserts.

    Was the pushrod touching the head anywhere?

    Made In China, lesser material, improper design, sub par QC, coronavirus etc. If I remember right these were higher ratio. You get a higher ratio by shortening the distance from the pushrod cup to the roller. That increases forces on the arm at the pushrod cup and changes the geometry. TSP doesn't have a team of GM engineers analyzing the rocker bodies and years of testing behind them like the stock arms. Even the non roller LS3 china made replacement rocker arms have issues breaking.

    Whatever black RTV I had laying around. For what it's worth. I run stock head bolts without issue.

    The wire has to be broken somewhere or there's a bad pin in a connector or something between the clutch switch and the starter. I say tuck that new wire in nicely and move on. I think you've fixed the problem, you just never found the specific source of the problem. The anti theft stuff on a new edge car is in the ecu. The anti theft will allow the car to start, then immediately shut off. It has nothing to do with the starter

    The connector breaks inside the sensor. You'll have to unplug it to be sure. I've fixed 2 of these so far and have the connector bodies to do a couple more.

    There is only one coolant temp sensor. The same value shown on the dash is the same the pcm sees. If it gets no reading it probably assumes it's high. The sensor is on the driver side head next to the header. The connector is probably broken.

    It looked fine also. Anything on that south side of the centennial is fine. Sysco is trashed, pull-a-part is rough. And all the buildings past the airport are ruined.

    Looks like a big portion of the old prison collapsed. The TVA lines next to it are in the river. The TDOT building is fine. It went on the south edge of the glass plant. The damage is a 2-400’ wide strip from riverbend to 109 in lebanon. Pictures don’t do it justice.

    I think the area near the prison might be the worst. Most of those warehouses are destroyed and some are leveled. I've got some pictures I'll post later.

    It's pretty bad. The damage around Nashville is through some highly populated areas. I work for Nashville Electric and we have a lot of damage. I see some people being out of power well into next week.

    The jokes on them. Ashley, like all good amish, doesn't use any technology newer than the 1980's.

    Your purchasing department probably has the above in the bid spec.

    In white to low bid government agencies and rental car companies.
