Classic Industries Opens Windows into Your Engine
These new transparent valve covers and thermostat housings from Classic Industries let you see inside your cooling and valvetrain systems. Anyone who's ever had to troubleshoot an engine problem can attest the job would be much easier if you could only see into the engine without taking it apart. Classic Industries is making that a reality by adding transparent thermostats and valve covers to its selection of engine products. Transparent engine parts were popular in the 1960s and 1970s, but the plastics of the day had severe limitations. They were prone to cracking and often became yellowed and cloudy, but recent advancements in materials, especially polycarbonates, have virtually eliminated those concerns. These new thermostat assemblies are manufactured from billet aluminum and heavy borosilicate glass (as used in steam boilers) and are designed to accept thermostats and restrictor plates. The valve covers are manufactured from a polycarbonate blend that will not warp, haze, or become yellow over time due to heat, while causing oil to sheet after about 30 seconds, even after running at high rpm's. These are more than novelty items; with a window into the beating heart of the vehicle, it's easy to find and correct minor problems in valvetrain, cooling, and oiling systems before they become major problems. These new transparent valve covers are available for big- and small-block Chevy engines and the thermostat housings for GM and Mopar V-8s.

Holley Ultra HP Two-Barrel Carbs
Holley carbs have powered more racers than all others combined and they're now proud to introduce the all-new Ultra HP Two-Barrel. Holley two-barrel carburetors have been a mainstay in oval track racing for decades, but racers always want more. They want more tuning ability, more durability, more weight savings, and more features. So, as always, Holley listened and designed the all-new Ultra HP Two-Barrel. These carbs deliver the proven results of the Ultra HP four-barrel, but now in a 500-cfm two barrel. They're all aluminum, providing a nearly 50-percent weight savings. They have no choke tower and an all-new air entry area for smoother airflow, yet retain the critical venturii and throttle bore dimensions for rule racing. They have large capacity HP fuel bowls, wedged float, dedicated race-only throttle levers, billet metering blocks and baseplates, plus much more. The new Ultra HP Two-Barrel carbs are available in two finishes – a vibratory polished with black billet (part number 0-4412BK) and a Hard Core Gray hard-coat anodized with black billet (part number 0-4412HB). They are already approved for use in the NASCAR Mid-West/West Coast Late Model Divisions and Holley expects more sanctioning bodies to approve them soon.

Hedman's C10 Headers
Hedman's new mid-length headers for small-block, big-block, and LS-swapped C10s and C20s maximize power and flow without sacrificing ground clearance. Adding to the popularity of these trucks is their ability to accept just about any Chevy V-8, whether it's a classic small-block, a monster big-block, or the modern LS engine. However if your truck is lowered, traditional long-tube headers can have major ground-clearance issues leading to scraped and dented primary tubes. Hedman's mid-length headers are engineered to deliver maximum exhaust flow, while maintaining a lower profile than traditional long tubes. Designed to fit 1967-1987 Chevrolet and GMC 2WD ½-ton and ¾-ton trucks equipped with the factory small-block or big-block engines as well as transplanted LS engines and aftermarket crate engines that utilize factory-style heads. With 1¾-inch mandrel bent primaries and 3-inch collectors, these headers have the capacity to easily complement heavy-breathing naturally aspirated or supercharged engines. For those with stock or more mildly modified small-blocks, the C10 SBC headers are also available with 15⁄8-inch primaries, while the C10 big-block headers are also available with optional 2-inch primaries for ultra-high horsepower applications. Hedman's C10/20 headers also feature an integrated ball-and-socket style flange collector to provide a durable, gasket-free seal. LS-swap headers also feature built-in 02 sensor bungs for a pain-free installation. For more information, call 562-921-0404, email TheC10Guy@hedman.com, or visit www.c10headers.com.
