The bottom one.
The top one is for a small block.

Point well taken Randy and I apologize to you for veering off your subject.

By the way your revelation on the Canadian heads and the follow-up posts was my Christmas present and a fascinating read, I always wondered about that!

General Discussion / What is the proper clutch rod?

Hi, I am trying to figure out which clutch rod is proper for my 69 SJC.  The one I have seems to fit weird.  Any suggestions as to the proper one?  Is it where the attach points are on the same side, or opposite side?

  Baseball AIN'T drag racing Ken. Drag racing is FULL of cheaters!!!!!! DSR JFR and THOUSANDS of others. SKILL of the driver is "maybe" 20% of the equation at BEST. Let's keep on the subject.

Was Eddie a cheater or a smart competitor?

With respect to major car races, what racing team came out of the cellar to win a major event? 

What is the driving force behind number 1 finishers, the machinery and pit crew or the skill of the driver?

Just because an AC system holds a vacuum doesn't necessarily mean it will hold pressure....and vice versa...

It stands to reason that you're right about that, b--r30, but I've never actually seen it happen.  Have you?

      THANK YOU as always! You are  (and were) there and I'm a couple thousand miles away , there is no substitute for that . My associations are from ( now 50) years of trying to establish them after I saw my first experimental parts and wanted to know how to get them.I was a "nobody" but a persistent "pest". Doug Nash (rip) was one of the first to help me ( kind of like giving a screaming kid a piece of candy LOL). In later years as the parts became "obsolete" they became available from many sources. this rekindled the fire in me and I returned to my search for answers. Through the help of many this "outsider" has been given some insight on many of the parts I have owned and in many cases returned them to usefulness. I just last week spent 3 hours with Bob Wendland who is also looking forward to talking with Bruce after  30+ years.  As we continue to lose the retirees  the "magic" of what they created will be lost forever. I think back about a ton of questions  I should have asked Bill Holbrook (rip) . He was SO happy to talk about the things he and the others did back then. To him it was like yesterday. Selfishly , I would like to know as much as I can about what went on and I refuse to give up trying.
