    My Chevy is 4.5" pattern and likely the same as your setup. But I'm pretty happy with the Torq Thrusts, so I'll pass Mike! Thanks anyway!

    With those RWHP figures that's a very good flywheel HP number for a SBC. I'd guess it's getting up in the 450 hp range or maybe a bit more at the flywheel, which is darn good.

    Wow! I didn't realize that anyone sold generic panels that type? That's a nice option for those of us without a bead roller!

    If you plan to drive it a lot, it's currently not set up to do so with ladder bars and leaf springs, and no floater brackets at the axle tubes. The springs will be in a bind with the ladder bars,...

    I'm down to two leafs on the Speedway axle front springs on my Austin gasser with SBC, and I could still remove one more and make it a single leaf. It's plenty firm with just two leafs.

    Have a brand new set of wheelie bars here I planned to use on the falcon, but never did. Not going to use them on the '39, as it wont fit the theme of old '60's hotrod.
