There not lost, His daughter misplaced them somewhere in his shop. The Lifters where Rodes Lifters, both the lifters and chain where in the same card board box. He ordered performance lifts NDA. Bondsman it's not Spring Hill Speed shop. It's Ken's Speed & Machine Shop in Brooksville. He has been working out of the same shop for 30 years. He has done work for me off and on for 25 of those 30 years.

It's been 4 months with out my Airboat I'm not drag racing the boat so stock should be fine.I'm ready to get the dam think back in the water or I'll be looking for a new place to stay. :tired: :screwy: The wife is about ready to kick me out :eyepopping:

To much time at the house...

Bondsman and I are in Hernando Co. We are at ext 301 off of I-75 then head West. Stan is up by Lake George which is North East of Ocala. T-Rex it's getting that way everywhere. I hope this intrest hike stops it.
There is going to be a big run put on by KRVSA at Kissimmee in Oct we all should hook up then!! :yes:


OK like I stated before They misplaced some parts which I stop by today and they gave me back. Now since it's been over 90 days Summit is going to charge me 10% plus shipping. So should I sell them on Ebay or take the loss?...Which by the way they meaning Summit sent the wrong timing set. It's for a Caddy but it's a single roller set.

Well then Summit needs to stop advertising that it's a double roller than.

That's the part number that they sent me.

Agreed, the places should fix their listings.
But, look at page 6 of the current catalog
http://www.cloyes.com/images/CloyesHighPerformCat-2002.pdf
It says 2002, but that's the link on the web  :screwy:
It also doesn't list the new "Street" part number, that is being sold 9-1139

I think the issue stems from all the other "Original" and "Street" set being double rollers.

Can you give us some pictures and specifics?
What intake?carb? Is the cam stock (does it have a lope?)
headers? What head numbers does it have (under the valve covers)? Get us a photo.
Are you sure its a 425? There are only a few differences notable on the outside from a 425 versus a 472/500.
