    ok...two problems:
    engine gremlins: at freeway speeds, my engine stubles. It only happens when i gas it r am doing above 60 on the freeway. The RPM's drop, kick back up, over and again. I think it is the engine and not the tranny cuz it starts to die, not "slip" also if it was the tranny it the RPM's would skyrocket, not die, right? i repaced the q-jet yesterday, timing is fine, plugs are ok, no wires burnt...any suggestions as to what it might be? new fuel pump going on today.
    Second: How do i put on a d60 steering block? i wold have to take apart the steering and am not that comfortable doing that...is it something i can tackle alone?
    any and all help or suggestions appreciated!

    If you have a inline fuel filter, be sure to replace that too
