    Borg Warner T-5

    Dellow Jeff is the only one I could find that knew what I needed. He is a very nice to work with but he takes long vacations. He has been to the U.S. and is familiar with the southeast and even knows where some of the salvage yards are.

    This looks like a good flying machine to me

    I love watching the good ones go I was a teen age air traffic controller on a S.A.C. base in 1964. We had one U2 land take off again while I was on duty. Amazing!! One day we had a Navy plane come in and when he left my boss told me not to ask him to do anything but if I wanted to see a show...

    Joe the plumber

    getting better all the time Nick, Since my last post in this thread my fleet has increased to 32 trucks. The worse the economy gets the better I am doing. I found a way to make truck drivers happy with their jobs. I now have a waiting list of 26 who want to come aboard. They will have to wait...

    I don't know a lot about airplanes but this looks like it could still give you a good ride. http://www.greatdanepromilitary.com/SR-71/index.htm

    Borg Warner T-5

    The kit from Dellow is to connect a Toyota 5 speed transmission to a 4 cylinder Alpine engine. Jeff appears to be the only one that knows anything about this kit. The Australians seem to take their time about things. Jeff went on about a four month vacation and I couldn't get anyone to do...

    I bought mine directly from Traction Master. I called with my credit card number and they arrived about 12 days later. They will be installed next week along with a new set of shocks.

    Gas conversion

    I don't know the mechanics of doing it but I do know that this conversion can be done to any internal combustion engine. Your local gas company most likely can direct you to the process.

    V6 Kits

    The same thing happened to me on an unrelated item which I thought had been prepaid. I called U.P.S. and indeed the driver had made an error as their form they deliver on is vague in that respect. U.P.S. sent me a check for what I had paid the driver.

    Re: Zdp

    I certainly have no knowledge about the Alpine or the V6 oil application but I have a 1989 Silverado 350 which has had nothing but Castrol full synthetic oil since I bought it in 1992 and it uses no oil and runs like new after 261,000 miles. My 1999 Bonneville V6 has had the same type oil since...

    V6 Performance?

    John, I think you might be coming around to the darkside. Next thing we may see is questions about how you can fit parts to your V6 conversion. Seriously, there is a place for purist and a place for mods. I think I am on both sides. There is room for us all.

    electric radiator fan

    And they are sometimes installed on the rear of the radiator to pull the air rather than push it. I think it may depend on how much room you have between the engine and the radiator.

    V6 Performance?

    Mine will smoke the tires for about half a block from a dead stop and will do 90 plus in 4th which is where I chicken out and there is still another gear left. The steering seems a little twitchy at 90 but I don't plan to be in that neighborhood very often so that is o.k.
