But I just know I can pull a bit more Power out of this Little 305 Ha-Ha . Never thought I would see the day that a 305 out Powered a 350 Ha-Ha

Thanks for asking . It's running Great My pride and Joy these Day's biggrin I was showing it to My Buddy at work Today . He is a Hot Rodder too . And really got a kick out of it . Last weekend I did a bit more Fine tuning to the Secondary Adjustment on My Q-Jet . I still want to install a High Volt Performance HEI Coil maybe some Better Spark Plug Wires .

After my Daily Work out I have been tinkering with this 600 V/S Holley Carb . I may try it out on My Pick up . I did not go to Fat with it . With the Cost of Fuel on the rise and I am only running 305 ci .

I went with a 4.5 Power Valve and #28 Shooter #66 Jets up Front and #68 yes this one has the rear metering block conversion .

Changed My mind again I bought this Edelbrock AVS 650CFM Carb Heat shield and Hard Line kit and O.D Trans Linkage arm a Few months back . Soon it will top that 305 in My Truck . Better Mileage and Power ? smile COOL

Here are the shocks I bought for the rear . You can get them at the Local auto store for around $110.00 bucks . They still seem to be about as strong as the day I installed them . Not crazy about the rougher ride but I can haul more weight now .

They Looked to have heavier coil overs then another brand I was Looking at . I can tell you this they don't go down with age . I did Like the ride much better with stock type shocks . I have used this type of coil over shocks on the front of old cars that had worn front coil springs and really Like how they helped the handling of the car . Less fender dip on turns . Back then we would never Lower our car's Like so many guys do today . One of the first things we would do after buying a used car was Lift it up with New springs . 2" over stock Looks Cool .

I would have to take the hanger out and check them . Most of the time I use a G-H hanger . And I Look close at the rods I find some that Look to be three Stage that end up thin on the ends but not to short . On the GTO's I have had they had some rich rear metering Rods . Real thin tips and short . But boy them 400's Loved Fuel . I had My truck out today it was a nice day and I must have got a good batch of Fuel . It was pulling out in Front of everything I wanted it to Ha-Ha that Q-Jet was opening up good .
