Track arm bar repair and setup

Customer stated the rear end of his Mustang was clunking terribly; upon inspection it was found that the rear track arm bar was disconnected and in need of repair. Our fabricator was able to successfully weld the components back together and get it down the road. IMG_1098 IMG_1099

Big block Chevelle timing woes

We received a call from a customer who had just installed a newly built big block engine in their hot rod; but experienced constant backfiring and the car just wouldn’t rev. Inspection found that several timing related components were far off from where they should have been; resulting in a significant loss of power. Set everything up properly and the car now does 400 horsepower dyno pulls all day.

460 Ford 460 Truck valvetrain failure.

This engine is a 460 swapped into an F-100 that the owner had some pretty serious valve train problems with. The engine would randomly toss the push rods out of the rocker arms. New correct length push rods and careful attention to the rockers geometry fixed this concern.

Anytime anything in the engines upper end is replaced its a necessity to pay attention to the valve train if you want the engine to stay together. Luckily this didn’t cause a complete¬†engine failure.

Dodge Ram exhaust upgrade

IMG_0867 IMG_0868 IMG_0869 IMG_0873 IMG_0874 IMG_0875The owner of this ’06 Ram with a HEMI loved the power his truck puts down; but not the quiet restrictive exhaust. We ordered up a Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust system at the customer request and it sounds¬†amazing; looks better to since the kit turns a factory single pipe to dual side exit.
