      Nick, could you please give me a call regarding EFI for my Jeep V6 225. I went to the megasquirt site and I think they have an application that is made for a Jeep. I am running a DUI distributor if that matters. My number is 240 330 2967.

      Thanks,

      Robert Stein

      Good morning, Nick suggested for me to contact you to find out if you were making the Saginaw gear box mounting plate and spud shafts. Nick stated your products are a lot better than Advance Adaptors and your plate can be adjusted. Please let me know if you have any of these items still available. You can email me at robertstein5847@yahoo.com.

      Thanks,

      Mike, last year I purchased front shims from you. Now I am working on the rear to bring the driveline within spec. I would like to purchase a set of 4 degrees, 1-3/4", 3/8" center bolt. Please cost and I will get a cashier check mail to you.
      Thank you

      Where did you get a 2 hole knuckle or what did you use for a (66) cj5 to convert to Power Steering?

      Mcruff,
      I saw a page at one time showing pics of some items you produced but cant seem to find it now. Anyway, I'm looking for an alternator bracket for an Fhead and I also seem to recall you had a saginaw manual mounting bracket. Do you still make these? If so I'd take one of each. Lemme know.
      Thanks,
      Mike

      Hey Mike,
      the tooling I got was a 3/8 Kennametal carbide insert turning tool, and a Kennametal boring bar that takes the same inserts. I was quite happy, my teacher knew I was looking for them so he sold them to me, he needed the cash, and he had the tools. He offered first, $80 later with 4 spare inserts and I'm super happy :D
      Looks like I'll be machining some dimple dies out of A2 tool steel and tempering them for the next project
