Bill was one of Kevin Sellers good friends and the builder and just all around wrench for his Skater. The man really knows what he's doing. You know I just got mine back from Eddie Young and I couldn't be happier.

wow. That sux. 82 Jets in a Dominator has to be lean.

A common problem has been when the cuprinickel comes apart from the intercooler and drops in the motor.

Man that sucks bro, sorry to hear.

Maybe I'm alone on this, but whenever I see a shop with the name like "and marine" like Acme Speed and Marine, or any variation of, I steer clear. IMO, there are too many 'car guys' with car knowledge in those places that forget ( or dont even know ! ) that marine stuff is different and only added the "and marine" part in hopes of broader sales and $$$ but knowing jack-sh/t about it.

Best of luck moving forward Bill.
