    Welcome to the 'stall' world! All stall converters will need increased rpm to get the car moving. How much rpm depends on the efficiency of the design. Also, the stall rpm is dependant on the engine...

    Others will probably have a different opinion to me, but I think 'cruise' is a condition, not a number. Actual cruise speed could be 5kph or 200 kph.

    Cruise condition is where the throttle is held...

    Sneem,

    I just remembered something. I have some Chrysler TF heads here. The top of the guide is 0.500" to take the 500 seal. But there is a step where the locator sits, 0.5XX" that takes a 0.530"...

    Sneem,

    I know what you mean about the sloppy fit, but I do not think it is a problem. Crane, Isky & Crower have a couple of 0.505" ID locators, but I think they are for beehive springs. Might be...

    HQ,
    Yeah 10lb out of the f/wheel or c'ter. The point to note is that the further out from the centre of a rotating weight, that wt is removed, the greater the acceleration benefit.
