    Thanks, bought myself a set of S type driveshafts/wishbones. They are 70mm shorter so once fitted I’ll need rear wheels with an additional 70mm of offset to put the wheels in the same place.

    Holley refurb

    I’ve got a Holley on an engine that’s not run for a decade!
    Was going to get the carb vapour plaster to clean it up then put a rebuild kit on it. Anything I should be wary of?
