The set comes standard with a 3 3/8-inch diameter mechanical speedometer (an electronic speedometer is also available), a 3 3/8-inch diameter electronic tachometer, and the remaining electronic 2 1/16-inch diameter gauges include: oil pressure, water temperature, fuel level, and volt gauges.
The new American Gasser gauges are packaged with fuel, oil, and water temperature sending units in addition to all brackets and hardware necessary for installation. The easy-to-follow instructions make this a rapid installation for the novice to the expert. The gauges are only available with chrome trim bezels with black faces.

ZZ Crateengine D.U.I.
Performance Distributors has applied their ignition expertise to the popular ZZ series of crate engines with their new ZZ Crate Engine D.U.I. Distributor. This new D.U.I. (Davis Unified Ignition) is specifically designed for the ZZ-4, ZZ-454, and the ZZ-502. Two features distinguish the Crate Engine D.U.I. from the regular line of DUI Distributors. First, Performance Distributors calibrates the advance curve on a distributor machine to accommodate the GM Performance Parts catalog's timing recommendations. Secondly, a melonized distributor gear is used to mesh properly with the crate engine's steel hydraulic roller camshaft. The distributor comes complete, including the Street/Strip D.U.I. Coil and Dyna-Module, which allow you to open up your plug gaps to .050-.055 inch, burning your fuel more completely. Magnetic pickup coil power is ensured by aligning the teeth on the pickup to the teeth on the shaft reluctor to very exact tolerances. An additional step that also ensures maximum magnetic pickup coil power is the hand setting of the endplay between the distributor gear and the distributor housing. For more information, contact Performance Distributors at 901-396-5782 or at www.performancedistributors.com/gmzzdui.htm.
Pace Pac LS 4.8L 293-CId Engine Package
Pace Performance has designed this screamin' little engine package using GM's 4.8L truck engines. GM has used these stout 4.8L LS series engines in their base and work series trucks since 1999. The 4.8-liter is known for its high torque and dependability, so they wanted to see what would happen when this engine was allowed to breathe with a 600-cfm carb. The dyno testing showed 'em that they were right ending up with 300 hp at 5,350 rpm and 340 lb-ft torque at 3,850 rpm. This 4.8L makes for a great way to introduce your ride to the LS engine family and still have some money left over for headers, engine mounts, plumbing and electrical. This engine only requires a two wire hookup to run, timing is preset (but can be adjusted), does not require O2 exhaust sensors and runs on low 5- to 7-psi fuel pressures. GM engineered the LS engines so that most of the parts included with this engine can also be used on other LS engines if you decide to upgrade to larger, higher performance LS engines in the future. You can check this baby out by contacting Pace Performance at 888-748-4655 or checking 'em out on the web at
CadStar Taillight Kit
New from Star Kustom Shop is the CadStar taillight kit. For years customizers and street rodders have been utilizing '59 Cadillac taillights, but the CadStar offers a new twist on an old take. The CadStar taillight kit mounts two '59 Cadillac taillights end to end for one long flowing stellar look. Surrounding the taillight is a custom, form-fitting, 18-gauge sheetmetal frenching bucket. When the taillight is installed in the bucket it mounts flush with the outer edge of the bucket for a clean and unique look. The CadStar taillight kit can be mounted vertical, horizontal, or diagonal-pretty much any way you want. The taillight's assembly measures 13 inches tall with a 3-inch center diameter, while the frenching bucket measures 16 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 4 inches. The CadStar is available with either dual-filament bulbs or LED bulbs. Both bulb options handle taillight, flashers, and brake light functions. For those only wanting the CadStar taillight, Star Kustom offers just the taillight as well. For more information, contact Star Kustom Shop at 918-257-4234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Large Diameter Precision Tubing Bender
Bending 3/8-inch OD tubing can be difficult with a lightweight handheld bender, particularly when bending stainless steel tubing. This husky Classic Tube swivel handle bender (No. 3820) can be repositioned anytime during a bend, which makes compound bends a simple, easy process. You can bend any 3/8-inch tubing using indicators at 15-degree increments, and this tool will bend from 1 to 180 degrees. This bender will also eliminate scoring or flattening of the tubing.
This tool features an open side design, which slips over the tube at any point. It's calibrated to show the angle of the bend and also features a wide hook that grips the tube securely. The design of this bender provides for precise control, stability, and leverage.

AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil
AMSOIL, the leader in synthetic lubrication and performance products, introduces a new premium engine fogging oil that offers superior film retention and provides long-term protection against rust and corrosion. Classic trucks and cars are commonly operated seasonally or infrequently, then stored for long periods of time. During these periods of inactivity engines are left vulnerable to the formation of condensation that causes surface corrosion. It may also dry out cylinders, which can cause permanent damage when the equipment is dry started. The most effective way to make sure the oil gets distributed into the internal engine parts is to use an aerosol fogging oil. AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil is applied through the engine intake or carburetor as the engine is running for a complete distribution of oil onto engine parts. For more information about AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and performance products, contact your nearest AMSOIL distributor or call 715-392-7101 or 800-777-8491.
