Making New Old
Customized old-school small-block Chevy valve covers are always a great addition to any vintage engine bay, but with the development of GM LS engines, many classic truckers have made the switch to one of these modern GM engines. To complement the late-model engine platforms with classic show-inspired looks, the all-new small-block Chevy valve cover adapter kit from Inglese enables mounting traditional SBC valve covers on a Gen III/IV LS engine. The adapters are CNC-machined from billet aluminum and have an O-ring channel for reuse of stock LS valve cover seals and more. For more information, contact Inglese at 866-450-8089 or visit them online at www.inglese.com.

See Ya C-Clips
Strange Engineering introduces a new style, specifically designed for street and/or strip, C-clip eliminator for most 10- and 12-bolt GM rearends equipped with C-clip-style axles. In the past, C-clip eliminators for these applications have been designed for drag racing, which use ball bearings that are prone to leaking and premature failure when used for prolonged street use. Strange's specially designed C-clip eliminator kit utilizes Timken bearings, which survive severe side-loads and constant use. The Strange A1033 kit also features two seals per axleshaft, ensuring a completely sealed axle end. For more info, contact Strange Engineering at www.strangeeng.net or 847-663-1701.
