Belt tension adjustment on radius tooth setups don’t require much tension at all, which removes a bit of stress from the crank. The tooth engagement alone provides a positive pulley drive. Routing the -12 plumbing from the vacuum pump to the valve [...]

Using my Goodson 1.8″ – 2.6″ valve spring height gauge, we set final spring installed height at 2.150″.

During intake manifold and gasket test fitting, I [...]
