    cast vs forged pistons

    For a vehicle that will not see heavy duty use there is really no benefit in specing forged pistons. In short forged pistons offer more strength. Go with cast for your use.

    I am desparately searching for a good timing cover from a 62-66 401 or 425 Nailhead engine. Also need a set of motor mounts for the same engine in a 66 Skylark.
    I cannot put my car back together without these parts so if you know anyone who can help, please contact me ASAP.
    Thank You,
    Terry Lucas

    can anyone point me in the right direction? I am restoring a 1964 wildcat convertible and need the moldings.

    I want to see someone sell a good Towing Cam for a 264/322 and a decent 4 barrel intake. Headers to fit in the 50s cars with those engines would be great too. I feel like the 264/and 322 are forsaken motors no one wants to make things for them. Mean while how many hundred thousand were made come on....

    I have long felt that the 264 was the greatest of the Nailheads. having said that, I must confess that my Buchev pickup is 425 (.30 over) 431 cu. in. Nailhead. I would be ecstatic to swap it for a perfect 264 (plus all parts required to do the swap, plus shipping/pickup).
