    Exactly.

    @ridethecliche , it's not as simple as switching rods. you will still need to thoroughly apply maintenance to the bearings, and install new rings. because if you don't? :rolleyes2:
    it's a waste of an opportunity.
    while you have the head off? at the very least, seat the valves, and install stronger valve springs.

    the more you give it, the more it gives you. cheap out at your own risk.:stirpot:

    Yes, and that steering wheel will kill you you in a 20 mph collision :crazy: Hehe, love the simplicity of older cars, but they for sure were not designed with safety in mind!
