One-Stop Top End
First introduced for the small-block Chevy over a year ago, Edelbrock's Top End Kits were an instant hit due to their all-in-one-box convenience and no-guesswork performance appeal. Their concept has been called the Edelbrock Total Power Package since the 1980s, but this is the first time Edelbrock has put it all in one box. Now, Ford fanatics can benefit from their famous Power Package concept. An Edelbrock Top End Kit for Ford includes an Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap intake manifold, Performer RPM cylinder heads, matching Performer RPM camshaft/lifters, intake bolts, timing chain, and high-quality Edelbrock gaskets. These kits can be topped off with an Edelbrock Performer Series or Thunder Series AVS carb for 367 horsepower from your 302 or 400 horsepower from your 351W Ford engine. There's no more guesswork about which parts to choose for the best street performance. Get more info from Edelbrock by calling 310-781-2222.
Wanna learn to weld, but are worried about all the dials and settings on the welder and how to get 'em right? Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has boiled down the MIG welder as we know it to their new no-brainer Auto-Set line of MIGs. With their new all-in-one MIG welder, you simply set the wire diameter and material thickness. Simple enough? Once you set those, Miller's patent-pending Auto-Set technology automatically sets wire feed speed and voltage to achieve optimal welding results. "Auto-Set technology allows the user to weld with confidence knowing that the machine is properly set up," says Ken Stanzel, product manager at Miller Electric. "Welders with all types of ability will benefit from this new technology, as it allows them to focus on their welding without worrying if their machine has been set up properly." The Millermatic 140, available with and without Auto-Set, also provides smooth, spatter-free starts through Miller's exclusive Smooth-Start technology, improving weld quality and decreasing the need for spatter cleanup. To find the nearest Miller distributor or for more information, call 800-4-A-Miller.
