Go For Your Guns!
Barry Grant's company, Triple-D Induction, has just introduced their SixShooter induction for Ford 302ci engines. By combining three 250-cfm two-barrel carbs (choke on center unit), a new aluminum intake manifold, and a polished Rush Performance air cleaner, the SixShooter matches and outperforms today's best single four-barrel combinations. With carbs turned rearward-like the originals-to clear the distributor, this triple two-barrel induction system is beautifully crafted, nostalgic in appearance, and easy to install and tune. The SixShooter features just three adjustment screws-no synchronization needed. This kit also comes with fuel inlets and throttle linkages, including a special right-side crossover mechanism. For more power and economy, contact Demon Carburetion, 706-864-8544; www.barrygrant.com.
Lock It Up or Suck It Up
If you're running a Chevy Turbo 350, 200-4R, 700-R4, or 4L60 automatic, your lockup torque converter was designed to be fully locked up for maximum efficiency. Full lockup allows no slippage with much less transmission wear and better mileage, and who doesn't want that these days? Converters were made to be locked up by the factory's ECM, so Ron Francis came up with a solution that will only take you about 30 minutes to install. There is no reason to remove the pan or modify anything. Your vehicle's speed is read through the speedometer cable adapter, and you can set the lockup speed anywhere you want it. It's all electronically controlled. The converter unlocks whenever you go below the lockup speed or if you hit the brakes. Comes pre-set for you at between 42-47 mph, but you can adjust it to your favorite cruising speed. Better gas mileage is only a simple adjustment away. For more information, contact Ron Francis Wiring or one of their dealers at Ron Francis Wiring 800-292-1940; www.ronfrancis.com.
New Binders For Your Pony
Make sure your Mustang II-sprung truck keeps up with all the hot rods headed for extreme duty or a day at the track with Wilwood's big new four-piston forged Superlite calipers, high cooling efficiency GT-series directional rotors, and lightweight aluminum hats mounted on super-strong forged billet hubs. Does that sound competition-ready or what? Wilwood's new front brake kit is configured for use on the popular '74-80 Pinto and '74-78 Mustang II disc brake spindles. BP-10 compound "Smart Pads" provide quiet engagement and low dust performance on the street, with fast response, superb friction, and high resistance to fade for those hot braking sessions at the track or in congested traffic. This entire package fits neatly inside a variety of 15-inch or larger rims, including the Trigo pin drive adapters and 15-inch knockoff-style Cobra wheels. Bolt-on caliper mounts, new wheel bearings, seals, premium-grade hardware, and alignment shims are all included for an easy installation. As you'd expect from a kit like this, it meets all sanctioning body rules in categories requiring four-piston calipers and a maximum 12.25-inch rotor diameter. Buckle up and call your Wilwood dealer at 805-388-1188 or go to www.wilwood.com.
It's Ok To Play With Dollies
Have you ever had to maneuver any type of project car or truck around with it teetering on a floorjack as you try to slide it in the corner of the garage? If you have or ever plan to, it's time to step it up! LMC Truck now exclusively offers the Extra Heavy-Duty Truck Dolly Set. These dollies make it easy for one person to move a car, truck, or SUV forward, backward, or even sideways into a tight spot. The Extra Heavy-Duty Dolly Set is rated at 7,000 pounds and can support any vehicle up to 3/4-ton. Each dolly platform is painted black and made of sturdy 1/4-inch-thick mild steel, measures 12x16 inches and mounts 3-inch ball bearing casters.
