does anyone have a picture (or take a picture) of an assembled Lincoln rear
disc caliper installed... it's been so long since I took them apart...it's
a little fuzzy. I'm particularly interested in the back side with the
e-brake bracket position...

It's tough getting old and losing your memory...

Hi Kevin,

Nice truck.
Is this a Super Stock or Modified ?
I am building a '66 4x4 for pulling.
It started off as a Street Stock,but the local
officials ruled that safety measures such as scatter shield
and shaft loops are not "stock"...so I guess I build a "street legal"
Super Stock :-)

I'd like more details/help from any and all 4x4 Pullers.

Main concern is getting the 4x4 lowered to lessen the knuckle
angles.

Another topic I'd like is tire type.
Most local tracks (N.IL ) are sticky clay when wet ,
hard as concrete when dry.

Does one run All Terrain tires like Kelly Springfield
(local manufacture is important to me), or is a more open "Mud Type"
better for the sticky goo ?

Some guys like traction through bite and others prefer tire speed.

Thanks for any help for the "Beige Beast and her Newbie Owner"

Especially, with the almost half ton of weight I can fit into it :)

We have had some issues with the safety rules here too. Street trucks with
safety features are not bumped up a class though.

My truck, is actually a street truck. I don't fit the rules for the NY
super stocks, except for their non-points pulls. PA and NJ do not have a
class, other than street trucks, and sometimes what is called street
modified. We are working on getting a single consistant class all over,
like a super stock class. We finally, just this year got some places to
change to a 5800, and 6200 lb weight class. Classes used to be broken up
into big block and small block.

As for tires, we are also allowed pulling tires and cut tires almost
everywhere now. For street tires, the BFG all terrains are the best I have
ever used for almost all tracks. Just remember that getting more traction
means better chance of breaking parts. I'm looking for some Cepek giant
pullers used, but I know with that kind of traction, I need more power, and
most likely will be breaking parts.

Personally, I feel that traction, and tire speed are needed. Increasing
either can help, as long as you have the power to turn the tires faster.
Good traction is needed to get out of the hole and speed the sled up as
fast as possible and keep pulling. The faster the sled is moving, the more
distance it will go under it's own momentum once the truck can't pull it
any more. Therefore high tire speed is needed to give the sled a high
momentum. Did that make sense?

Oh, one more thing about tires. If you can find a set of Goodyrear Terra
tires, get them. They are not sold anymore with a DOT number, but if you
can get the older DOT tires if you need them, or if you can run non DOT
tires, new ones, they work very well. Running the backwards on some tracks
gives even better bite too. I have a set of these, though they are cut.
They do work very well.

Kevin

One of my friends found that driving a car with a beatup front end stopped people
from doing stuff ... not that you would intentionally beat up the front of your
truck, but makin it look ugly sometimes makes em think ...

Just my $.02
