    *Just a thought* (CK5) should have a section that is updated once a week with new reading material. Or links to other articles on other sites with new products. Or articles that other members could write up and submit to Steve F.

    Well the reason that I ask is while I'm at work and nature calls and I want to read something new and exciting. It takes me 10-15 min. to find something new. By then I'm running with nothing to read.
    Except an old issue of Four Wheeler Mag from last year that I have read cover to cover at least 15 times. Cuz I left the new issue at home.

    Any way just a thought.
    What do you all think.

    Try "How To Build hosepower" by David Vizard

    -Vol 1: engines, covers theorys and operation. Cams/heads/exhaust etc.

    -Vol 2: carbs and intakes. He starts from the ground up, and descibes the fundementals, then it gets nasty.. cuts up a Q-jet for performance.

    "How to Build and Modify Chev S. B. Camshafts and Valvetrains". By David Vizard.
    Again, starts from theorys and operation and goes into detail.

    Currently "Chassis Engineering" By Herb Adams is resideing next to my throne (again)
    -More circle track and road race stuff. Still good reading, better than starring at the wall. but not all that usefull.

    How's Somkey's book? That guy was way-before his time.

    PS. Carolina K5 This is NO JOKE. My girlfriends Pet name for me is "Pooter Boy" some times just Pooter. I guess cuz I'm on the computer all day at work and I spend a lot o time on the pooper.

    Maybe you should have a little more fiber? Less time to stare at the wall...

    Well I took your advice and got a couple of books last night at the cheepy book store. One is from GM, printed in 1955 but it all still stands true (most of it at least) It goes into detail about the Internal Combustion Engine. "Hey for $2.75 you cant go wrong"
    and another about Emissions and the whole story about it.

    So thanks for the suggestions.

    Glad to here it.

    Does any body else have any good book sugestions?

    I have read: all the Carrol Smith books, welder's handbook, and a few budget 350 books.

    Any good books on offroad suspension, axles, etc.
