    Hi Bear,
    I have a 1968 LeMans with a 350 converted from 2 barrel to a 4 barrel otherwise completely stock. Currently 2.56 gears eventually to be changed to nothing lower than 3.55. I am replacing my tired st300 trans with a rebuilt th350 with slight shift kit. My question is would I do alright with a basic lower stall torque converter from say Summit or Monster Trans that are undoubtedly built for chevy's? I am not looking to beat on the car beyond the very rare stomp on it and go situation.


    Thanks for any help you can give me

    Jon

    Hi Bear,

    Do you have a recommendation for a Pontiac tuner here in Dallas? I live in Grapevine and am having issues with my engine (400 with Ram Air III top end & Qjet) getting really hot. It's idles Ok once you get it started and struggles to start back up after warm. We're pretty sure it's a combination of timing and Qjet tuning. Tuning a Qjet and timing is out of my expertise; if you of it you know anyone who can do this would be very helpful. Thanks for your time. - Wayne 817-319-0798

    Hey Bear,
    I need to paint the front wheel wells for my 65, but I'm not sure what to use. I know it's black, but I want to match the factory as much as possible.
    Do you have a recommendation, and can I just paint it out of a can, or should I have it sprayed?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    What is a running Desoto Hemi 330 worth, with a tranny? Buddy has one pulled out, thought it would be cool for a ratrod. Don't know how good it runs, but he's putting it on craigslist, so may want to jump as he doesn't really know either.. It has a 1 barrel on it.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    hey Bear, always impressed by your concise and informed posts regarding our Engines and store it in my ever growing knowledge of the intricacy's of them. was wondering if you get a chance you might be able to run my engine specs through your software to see what kind of numbers i might expect.

    Thanks
    Brian
