Not wrong hobby bud. 11.5 to 1 so I need to find good gas or lots of additives for 700 miles one way. Guess I'll carry extra fuel just in case.

I empathize, sympathize, good luck when you mobilize, been there done that/got the "T' shirt, hat and belt buckle! Hopefully you've got aluminum heads on it. That's usually good for a half point over cast iron.

Many lotsa years ago, when I bought mine it had a 331 small journal with 12.5. It had been put together back in the '70's when 260 Sunoco was available. Did 2 years of Detroit in Aug. for the Dreamcruise with it before I built sensible mill. Race gas when I could find it, octane booster, crossed fingers, outside temperature racing the humidity for the 100 mark and lots of worry. Construction back ups were real fun!

Randy, I drove my 57 all over the country when I was a teenager with a 3:55 rear. It was the stock gear set for a three speed 57. You will have no problems, its a great all around gear in my opinion.

Oh I'm glad I did, it's way peppier with these gears and still not taching too much with the OD.

I am always up for a little longroof vs longroof action. Last year the only other guy that wanted to play was Doug username "WaggyWagon" in the green and white 56 210 four door.
