Classic GM Automatic Transmission Rebuild Kits McLeod Racing, Placentia, California, and Raybestos Powertrain present a new line of Performance Automatic Transmission Rebuild kits, including applications for classic GM applications such as Power Glide, TH350 and TH400. The kits feature National Oil seals and Farpak gaskets for improved sealing capabilities, and Teflon-coated rings for tighter seals. OEM-thickness grooved friction plates increase holding capacity, and all filter materials are brass. With holding power of up to 1,000 hp, the kits can be used on the street or at the track. LS S10 Swap Oil Pan Canton Racing Products, North Branford, Connecticut, presents an LS S10 Swap Oil Pan. Designed to be used in LS swaps for S10/S15 and Blazer 4x4 chassis, the pan is fabricated from 14-gauge steel and powder-coated gloss black for durability. It has a 7-quart system capacity and also accepts OEM tray part #12558253. The pan requires the 16-279 pickup for 16-278 oil pan. Lightweight Steel Flywheel Fidanza Performance, Perry, Ohio, presents a Lightweight Steel Flywheel for Ford, Toyota and Subaru applications. Offering a one-piece design made from 1045 steel, the flywheels are designed to reduce weight and inertia for better engine response. The ring gear teeth are milled into the flywheel, which incorporates features to enhance airflow for improved clutch cooling. The flywheels work with a variety of aftermarket and OEM clutch kits. Jeep TJ/LJ 2-Inch Lift Rear Coil Springs Synergy MFG, San Luis Obispo, California, presents 2-inch lift Rear Coil Springs for Jeep Wrangler TJ and LJ applications. Designed to offer improved off-road performance while preserving ride quality, the coil springs are progressively wound and feature an abrasion- resistant black powder-coat finish. They give the advertised amount of lift with use of aftermarket rear bumpers and tire carriers. Sold in pairs, rear bump stop spacers are required. Radiator Cleaner LIQUI MOLY, Hauppauge, New York, presents Radiator Cleaner, designed to reliably remove deposits and dirt from the cooling system. After the cleaner is added, the radiator is switched on and the motor left to run. Active ingredients dissolve deposits, slime and dirt. After 10 to 30 minutes they are drained away with the old coolant and the system is rinsed with water. The service life of the water pump is also increased, and problems with the cooling system are prevented. SBC Aluminum Block Bill Mitchell Products, Deland, Florida, presents its Aluminum Block for small- block Chevy applications. The block features cooling-enhancement fins for improved cylinder wall stabilization and reinforcement. Reinforcing ribs in the engine's valley connect the banks and add stability, and the ribs are drilled to cross-feed the lifter galleys as well. The Chevy small-block is configured for priority main oiling to assure that the crankshaft is lubricated before the lifters, and offers standard fuel pump location and engine mounts that accommodate drop-in replacement or all-out race use.
