    With 500+hp, an auto would be great for the drag racers.

    Just think what the car would do with a set of slicks & a 3500 stall converter.

    Consider yourself lucky as there aren't many of those finds left. Most barn finds have deteriorated to a rusty plie of metal from dampness.

    Perfect timing... I was looking for one of these to check the bottom end in a 383 stroker.

    Saw a Ryobi scope at Home Depot today, but the probe is too large for the oil pan hole.

    You can replace the 1 piece seal by only removing the flywheel.... no need to remove the pan, crank or main cap. Much easier to replace & less likely to leak.
