Both horizontal and vertical configurations are available, with the unit sized to match the Vintage Air controller for a simple migration. Installation is nearly effortless with the addition of a series of temp sensors, while plugging directly into the Gen IV wiring.

While Performance Automatic’s C4 Coyote Stock Pro Heads Up trans package is specifically designed for NMRA Coyote Stock race competition, we just know Ford’s Coyote engine is going to become popular, and builders are going to need bulletproof transmissions to back them up. Rated to 1,000 hp, the package starts with the company’s C4 Pro Mod trans, and includes their Pro Tree transbrake and SFI Pro Fit bellhousing.
There’s an SFI certified flexplate and 8-inch Pro Launch converter, custom designed to enhance the unique performance characteristics of the Coyote 5.0 sealed race engine. A direct bolt-up fit, the package will provide proven performance, consistency, and reliability, and is backed by a Guaranteed Forever lifetime warranty.

That’s The Way To Buick!
Seems we’re running more parts for the Buick Nailhead recently than ever before! PML has just released not one, but three new valve cover designs for the engine, a classic smooth-sided design, the Full Fin, and a finned version with the “BUICK” script on the side. Heavy-duty, sand-cast aluminum construction provides strength and durability and will not bend or flex.
In addition to the three design options, these covers are available in three finishes: natural cast, powdercoated, and polished. Each design accommodates PCV, oil fill, and breathers, if needed, and fit ’53-66 Buick engines from 264-425 ci. For more information, contact PML at (310) 671-4345 or www.yourcovers.com.
It’s A Groove Thang
Get your groove thing back with this new design of power window switches from Watson’s StreetWorks. They’re the same high-quality switch kit as always, but with a different look. Watson’s has added grooves to the switch for looks and tactile ease during operation and more lighting holes for the illumination on these five-wire rocker switches to shine through.
The single oval frame measures 2 11/16x1 15/16 inches high, the double is 3 1/8x2 1/4 inches high. The frames mount with blind studs from behind, and as with all Watson’s products, the kits come complete with all necessary wire hook ups as well as installation instructions. For more information contact Watson’s StreetWorks at (860) 859-0513 or www.watsons-streetworks.com.
A Sweet Sickness
We meant to include this movie in our DVD reviews last month, but ran out of time to watch ’em all! A Sweet Sickness is a movie by Brian Darwas, and is a must for Flathead fans, covering all aspects of the engine that pioneered the hobby we all enjoy today. You’ll see Mike Herman of H&H Flatheads and Ron San Giovani build high-powered Flatties, ride along with Verne Hammond and Jack Carroll of the Burbank Choppers and Ryan Cochran of the Jalopy Journal in their Flat-motored hot rods, and learn speed secrets from Vern Tardel, Paul Howard, and Dave Simard. But mostly you’ll see and hear this iconic engine, get right inside them as they’re built, and learn what makes them tick and what their weak points are. It’s an infinitely better way to spend an evening than watching America’s Talentless Housewife Idol. For more information, visit www.atomichotrods.com.
