My entire exhaust system needs replacing. I have to pass CA smog when it's over, so yeah. I want to use these smog legal headers:

This muffler:

Stock routing, 2.5" -> 3", unless I can think of something better.

I'll also put in some V-band clamps to let me remove the Y-pipe for transmission work.

All advice is appreciated.

I'm still relatively new to American cars, so bear with me. I've been deal with a lot of trans leaks lately, including a pretty bad one coming from an age-hardened front pump seal.

My question is, with all these seals on the outside failing, will internal seals start failing next? Does that happen? Should I be preparing for major transmission work in my near future? The thing operates fine; just leaks a lot.

Hey everyone,

I have a 1979 Chevy C10 and I'm rebuilding the 350 that came in it. I've got the engine out already and tore down to the block. I'll be looking to take the block into a machine shop sometime in the next few weeks to get bored .030 over and get the oil pan and head mating surfaces milled nice and flat.

The rotating assembly will be pretty stock except the .030 over pistons. Crank and connecting rods will be stock. So I'm really talking about selecting a camshaft, and I know nothing about selecting a camshaft.

I need new lifters so we can change out the lifters as well to match the cam or just buy Summit's oem style lifters.

My question then is really simple: what can I buy to get good daily driving performance but give myself a nice little upgrade over the stock camshaft? Looking to make more power, I'm not particular about the noise. I'm not looking for anything crazy, but I'd say my max budget for a camshaft and lifters would be $500. Any suggestions?

Edit: Also looking to probably do a vortec head swap at some point in the future after it's back in the truck (just a matter of saving and then building them right), so it's a bonus if the cam would interface well with both the stock and vortec heads.

Selecting a cam really starts to make a novice like me dizzy.

So I want to get a locking rear diff for my 87 Chevy v10, Ive read into it a little bit and I think a Eaton E-Locker is a good example of the best fit for me. I want it to be selectable, and I want it to be a full lock as opposed to limited slip. But they are quite pricy.

Do yall have any suggestions of certain products or routes I can get this done?

Thanks in advance fellas!

I searched this subject and there was quite a bit of technical information on how to remove them, rebuild them and such but I'm looking to find a place to buy them rebuilt. has them listed but it's been a LONG time (pardon the pun) since they haven't been backordered. Is there anyone who does this service? I do not have the time to rebuild them myself. Plus I'm old and have no intent to waste the precious time I have left on a gamble I could even do it correctly. I'm sure I could get them installed but that's all I'm confident in.
