Flanges for Fabricators
Deeds Engineering is pleased to announce the release of their all-new steel exhaust flanges. Made of 3/8-inch thick 1018 (cold rolled) steel to create a strong, durable, warp-resistant flange, they're cut with a CNC milling process for a smooth, TIG weld friendly surface. All flanges are coated in high-luster, weld-through plating resulting in an amazing appearance without the higher cost of using stainless steel. Flanges offered include header flanges, three-bolt union flanges, as well as turbocharger flanges.
MBM Brakes, Steering, & Suspension is happy to announce the addition of the DBK9 rear disc brake conversion kit to their product line. The DBK9 provides an easy to install, bolt-on solution for upgrading your 9-inch rearend to disc brake performance. MBM's kit is unique in that it provides all the brackets and flanges that fit the three most popular sizes of the 9-inch rearend. This eliminates all guesswork when purchasing and installing the kit. The DBK9 comes in both standard and high-performance kits with the high-performance LX kit including cross-drilled and slotted rotors and stainless steel braided brake lines. Both kits are also available as a full power brake kit which includes a power booster and master cylinder in addition to the basic conversion kit.
To complement their 800hp-rated 4L60E transmission, B&M has introduced the Holeshot and Traveler series torque converters. Furnace brazed for strength, the 3,500-stall unit includes an anti-balooning plate making it suitable for higher-horsepower racing applications.
OTB Gear continues to "brake" new ground with this solution to the standard brake master cylinder. Truck owners can finally stop settling for that ugly, stock unit probably in use right now. As opposed to billet, this high-quality casting of A-356 aircraft grade aluminum is finished to a show-quality shine with that vintage OTB finned design that they're famous for. Based on the popular GM-style master cylinder it features a 1-inch bore and a dual-chamber cylinder with four connection ports. Tubing can be run left or right, it's the owner's choice.
American Autowire's Latching Relay Module (PN 510170) replaces a dimmer switch and allows you to switch between high and low beams with either a momentary pushbutton turn signal switch (PN 510169) or a momentary pushbutton tilt lever switch (PN 510168). In addition to switching between high and low beams, the latching relay module automatically resets your headlights to the low beam position whenever the headlight switch or vehicle is turned off. Lastly, the latching relay module allows you to flash your high beams in a "flash to pass" situation, when the headlight switch is not in the on position.
In a Fog
Motor oil for two- and four-stroke engines often acts as a barrier to keep condensation from contacting engine parts and forming corrosion. Yet, motor oils lose their effectiveness over time. That's why AMSOIL announces the introduction of a new premium engine fogging oil that offers superior film retention and provides long-term protection against rust and corrosion. The aerosol spray formulation offers easy and clean applications, while reaching more components and offering better distribution than straight motor oil. AMSOIL Engine Fogging Oil is applied through the engine intake or carburetor as the engine is running for a complete distribution of oil onto engine parts. It is easier, more effective, and cleaner than pouring motor oil into the engine cylinders and manually rotating the engine and will protect the engine internals on vehicles that are stored for long periods of time.
A Balanced Flathead
If you've ever built a Flathead Ford V-8, you know the crank pulley is very easily bent and provides no vibration damping benefits for the crankshaft. The result is excessive wear on internal engine parts and an extremely short engine life. Speedway Motors can help your Flathead live longer and run smoother with the addition of their new chrome-plated Flathead balancer. This crankshaft balancer fits '49-53 Flathead Ford V-8s and provides the vital protection from vibrations that ol' Henry should have offered in the first place. The brilliant chrome-plated finish also adds a bit of flair to the front of your Flathead. Matching bolt-on chrome-plated pulleys (available for wide-belt or narrow-belt applications) are also available and necessary to complete your balancer installation. Protect the investment you've put into your Flathead with this affordable new balancer from Speedway Motors!

This 5.3L LS powerplant from Pace Performance has the same 327ci displacement of the high-winding small-block engines of the '60s. Introduced in 1962, the 327 was found in everything from fuel-injected Corvettes to the very first Camaros. It was renowned for its high-rpm performance and surprising torque from a comparatively small-displacement V-8. This powerful and economical LS327 crate engine delivers a strong 350 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque. It is based on the 5.3L engine used in thousands of GM trucks and SUVs, but it is "breathed on" by GM Performance Parts engineers with a hotter cam, Grafal-coated high-silicon pistons, and more. An iron block reinforces the engine's strength and keeps the cost down. Pace finishes the GMPP 327 with all the components needed to make these engines completely turn-key. This very economical LS engine package is perfect for trucks. Like all the LS family engines, all the components can be transferred to other larger, more powerful LS engines when more horses are a necessity.
Rear Disc Convert
Wilwood Engineering's new 11-inch Internal Drum E-Brake Rear Kits are perfect for enthusiasts who have original classic trucks that are running smaller diameter rear wheel sizes. This kit will be perfect for all 15-inch diameter wheels and will also work with many 14-inch wheels that are designed to clear disc brakes. The brake kit features Wilwood's special internal drum parking brake design that allows an efficient parking brake system that is easy to install and a snap to hook into the stock parking brake cable system. The kit features a forged billet Dynalite caliper in a Platinum -E, Red, Black and polished finish for a show appearance. The kit also features an 11-inch rotor that works with the internal brake assembly. The rotor is available in a standard smooth design or slotted and drilled for a more aggressive appearance. This kit has been designed to fit all of the rear axle assemblies that Wilwood offers rear brake kits for, as well as the stock Tri-5 Chevy axles.
U.S. Radiators' new cross-flow radiator and bolt-in mounting supports for '55-59 Chevy and GMC trucks offers maximum temperature drop while cleaning up the engine compartment's looks and accessibility. It uses the original core support mounting holes for both the upper and lower mounts with one simple modification. The new cross-flow radiators are available in both aluminum and copper/brass construction allowing longer core tube length and greater temperature drop from inlet to outlet for those hard-to-cool applications. With nothing extending above the top core support bar, front access to the engine compartment is greatly improved for maintenance and overall appearance.
