Extreme Elco Engine Swap! - Roadkill Episode 4
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan and a carsick dog drive a '69 El Camino 500 miles from home (on seven cylinders) to change an engine in the parking lot of Summit Racing. The story goes that Finnegan's wife's grandfather bought this1969 Chevy El Camino brand new, and it's been passed down through the family, finally to her. It's a solid car, and the suspension has been hopped up, but the all-original 350 engine was smoking like a freight train. That didn't stop the guys from limping it from Los Angeles, California to Sparks, Nevada, where Summit Racing has a fully-stocked warehouse. Summit sells every speed part and replacement part on Earth, including the 420hp, 383ci crate engine, so the logic was that the guys would save time on the engine swap because they could walk right into the store instead of driving to a parts store multiple times, as they would have back home. So how long will it take a couple gearheads to change an engine outside in a snow flurry? Will the EPA shut them down before they can finish? And what happens when you let a carsick dog ride shotgun? Watch to find out!

homemade press , Pressing in control arm bushings
New video here Removing wheel bearings https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfYIhzbv8Ro . Homemade Hydraulic shop press with 20 ton jack. Pressing in energy suspension bushings and progress spherical bearings on honda civic lower control arms. 2x2" square steel 1/4" thick. 3/16 square tube works great too. The outside dimensions are about 21" tall x 18" wide. updates below. Update added thick top plates and a base. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tN5KcTr4bQs - The most difficult part in making this frame with single top and bottom tube is you have to make sure the top and bottom square tubes is absolutely parallel to each other. Not only from side to side but from front and back. This is a little difficult , if you are welding , make tacks then check and adjust if necessary. If the tubes is not parallel then the part will try to come out when the force is applied. This is why the single top tube is not so great idea or if you look at a real press it has 2 tubes at the base where the part sits. - If all you have is 1/16 thick tube it will work with most bushings but you need to protect the top tube with a plate(i write about that below) - If you make this , try to protect the top bar by using a plate, you can see I have the black plate tied to the top tube , if you do not use a thick plate here to spread the load you can easily damage the top bar, if you look at the orange frame in the background you can see how that one is damaged. If you are pressing in some soft or easy bushings then you do not need that part but if you are pressing in something difficult that requires a lot of force then use something to protect the top. Wood press - there is a video on youtube about a wood press pressing in a wheel bearing it is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krbrm1bN-Mg I tried wood to press out control arm bushings but they were so tight and the whole frame flexed so it did not work for me but maybe you can make it work.

Development of the New Hotchkis Tuned APS Adjustable Monotube Shocks
Having the right shock on your car can mean the difference between winning and losing in racing. For our new Hotchkis Tuned APS adjustable shocks, we spent countless hours road testing, track testing, and testing in the lab to develop a shock that meets the needs of the racing enthusiast. We started by benchmarking data from OEM-spec shocks, aftermarket performance shocks, and the Hotchkis SPS non-adjustable shocks on a shock Dyno as well as on a 7-post shaker rig with our '67 Chevelle test car. After going over the data, the valving for the new adjustable shocks was fine-tuned on the shaker rig to offer a smooth, comfortable ride on the shock's softest setting and a more aggressive, race-oriented ride on its stiffest setting. All of this testing ensures that every shock application is perfectly matched to the each vehicle's size, weight, and suspension geometry to offer superior ride comfort and excellent vehicle control.
