I do like the new style of Hot Rod Magazine. It's looking like they're willing to spend a little more of that money they collect from the ad pages, on the editorial pages. My only question after the last issue (which I loved) was whether they'd be able to keep it up for the next. So far so good.
Finnegan is a real asset to the mag I believe, but he's been on my radar for small boo-boos. This month a freind's accident inspired him to put on a pair of leather gloves while using a band saw, in the quest of caution (pp. 12), and there was a comment about A833 overdrives, which were "found in early-'80s GM two-wheel-drive trucks.
That trans was also found in GM 4wd's (there's one in my back yard) and some Dodges as well, although I guess he didn't actually exclude them. And, uh, do NOT wear leather gloves while bandsawing, or using any other power tool which has any liklihood of grabbing the glove and pulling your hand into it. That is general knowledge in the mfg. trades but here's a link: http://www.forrestmfg.com/wear-glove...-a-bandsaw.php
Since we have magazine columns in Hot Rod for exposing internet lies and bad advice (pp 127, 145) maybe there should be one going the other way...
