AutoMeter: Direct-Fit Gauge Sets for Classic Chevrolet and Ford

The new direct-fit gauge sets from AutoMeter simplify part selection and installation, giving builders of classic (’40s to ’60s) Chevrolet and Ford car and truck projects a custom performance instrument solution without the custom fabrication price.

These AutoMeter sets excel in three specific areas: simplicity (take the guesswork out of deciding which parts to use), value (bundled components save money vs. buying individual pieces), and installation (gauge clusters use factory mounting locations).

Available in five-piece sets (programmable electric speedometer, electric oil pressure, electric water temperature, voltmeter, and fuel level) and six-piece sets (includes five-piece set contents plus a tachometer).

Features

  • Application-specific billet-aluminum mounting hardware.
  • Seamlessly integrates five or six iconic AutoMeter gauges into the original dashboard without disrupting the unique character of the vehicle’s interior.
  • Preterminated, color-coded universal wiring harness for simplified installation.
  • LED indicator lights for turn signals and high beams.
  • 1/8” NPT sensors for oil pressure and water temperature.
  • 1/4”, 3/8”, and 1/2” NPT adapter bushings and vehicle speed sensor for OEM transmission type.
  • Matched fuel level gauge ready to use with your factory sending unit.
  • Made in the USA.

SA Design (CT625): CarTech’s “Hubert Platt: Fast Fords of the ‘Georgia Shaker’” Book

In CarTech’s Hubert Platt: Fast Fords of the “Georgia Shaker,” Platt’s son (and fellow drag racer) Allen Platt explores his father’s impact on the NHRA universe. Known as the “Georgia Shaker,” Platt cut his motoring teeth on the long straightaways and twisty back roads of South Carolina while bootlegging moonshine. After a run-in with the law in 1958, Platt transferred his driving skills from illegal activity to sanctioned drag racing and began one of the most dominant runs in drag racing history until his retirement in 1977.

Hubert Platt: Fast Fords of the “Georgia Shaker” (CT625) dives in to Platt’s most famous machines, incomparable showmanship, and his 1986 induction into the NHRA Hall of Fame.

PROFORM (69520): Ignition Coil Brackets for GM LS1/S6 V8 Engines

PROFORM has the solution for what to do with those pesky coils in confined spaces. The company’s 69520 ignition coil brackets lift your coils off your valve cover so you can see the Chevrolet emblem. How do they work? A unique rail-mounting system attaches to the threaded holes on the valve cover, and the individual coils attach to the rail to allow for mounting in multiple positions. All necessary hardware is included. Also available for LS3/S7 applications (PN 69521).

Note: PROFORM coil brackets are not compatible with AC Delco coils D585 and D581 or stock spark plug wires (which are not long enough); if making your own wires, a 13–15” length is required.

Flex-A-Lite (315360): Direct-Fit Extruded-Tube Core Radiator/Fan System for 6.0L Power Stroke Turbodiesel

Thanks to Flex-A-Lite, better cooling is in sight for owners of 2003–2007 Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty pickups with 6.0L Power Stroke Turbodiesel engines. The 315360 system, which comes with dual electric fans, replaces the factory belt-driven clutch fan and shroud to deliver more engine power to the wheels and better fuel economy. It also allows for faster engine warm-up and improves A/C performance at idle and slow speeds.

The future of performance aluminum radiators includes a variable-speed, adjustable thermostatic controller, moves 6,000 cfm of airflow, and provides better heat transfer—all thanks to the extruded-tube design, which replaces outdated single-, two-, three-, and four-core configurations. The Flex-A-Lite 315360 radiator/fan combo achieves this performance along with more durability (100 psi burst rating) and less weight.

Applications (including LS swap) available for muscle cars, pickups, and Jeep. Also available without a fan (315300).

Features

  • Increased contact between coolant and aluminum tubes—and tubes and fins—for better heat rejection and cooling.
  • Redesigned cooling fins also contribute to improved heat rejection and cooling—wind tunnel tested!
  • 100 psi burst rating.
  • Corner subhead reinforces the cooling tube–to–header connection, an area prone to cracking and leaking in other brands of aluminum radiators.
  • Available with (315360) and without (315300) dual electric fans.
  • Warranty: 2-year transferrable.
