Last week, I purchased a 1976 TA 455 4spd sight unseen. I had the car shipped to my wife's home in CA. The car is absolutely pristine. My wife found paperwork in the car that indicates a Crane Cam, Holley Carb, Offenhauser EGR Adapter, Blackjack headers. I have the paper on the cam specs, but don't understand what it means. My question is: is there anyway to estimate the HP with these modifications ?
About to change the heather gasket, left siode. Managed to loosen the heather today. Quite a job. The removed gasket was severely damaged.
Hopefully, I will stop the exhaust leak by installing a new gasket , left side. Not sure about the other, R. side.
