    I love this car.
    Search ebay for AOD TV bushing is one source where I got mine.

    I think you're about 1500 lb over curb weight there. That sounds like GVWR, which is curb + max load.

    I think I'm going to leave it alone. It runs so good, and is so original I might feel guilty. When this engine pukes, I'll probably go to a 351 based stroker of stupid unnecessary size. The thought of a factory looking 331 under pressure is VERY appealing too.

    A friend has a set of AFR 165s with 3 passes on them. Deal of the century for me.
    Soo... Might get them and toss them on the shelf for now.
    Now comes the big decision.
    Leave Sherrie alone or pinch her butt a little for more power.
