Description: I'm not a real mechanic but with the help of real mechanics on the internet I was able to do a ring job, honned out all the cylinders and upgraded to 1.6 to 1 roler Comp Cam rocker arms and new valve springs and a new set of pushrods. I put a new intake manifold and carberator and a new distributer and a set of long tube headers complete with electric cutouts. I also installed a rack & pinion steering unit. Just because we're not a mechanic, doesn't mean we can't work on our cars.
If I can do it....anyone who knows the difference between a torque wrench and a cresant wrench can do it.
