I knew someone would remember where they came from...... by the way thanks a lot we pulled the drive, had powersteering pump and starter rebuilt, fixed power steering cylinder "air" problems and stabbed the drive. Started saturday morning really early, took a break around 11 and went to watch poker run leave, and had it together by 4 to catch up with the poker run on their way back in.

i have a freind that builds 3a,s for the goverment every day. he told me last week that mercury has or will stop making 3a,s & 5,s any day. he also told me that mercury had a bad run of upper gears that took him one drive (while building could not get clearences to come in) to find and took mercury several blown up drives to find. call mercury and they will replace certin date code sets. my buddy has built at least 1000 3a,s and if you want it done better than mercury he is the man. let me know i will get you in touch with him.
