I think weve agreed twice in the last few months...

Im not sure if this has anything to do with it or not but your gf gave me a rash in the shape of a maple leaf, eh.

I wouldnt drink the pisswater you called beer but i appreciate the fact of you acknowledging the necessity of alcohol.


Id build a dana 27 to the nuts before i used rockwells. They are "cheap" until you actually get to work on them

I ran a welded d44 with 39.5 swampers in high school for about a year. We'd go wheelin and it would always get through that big hard section that nobody could do then.......Snap!
FUN OVER.

Not to mention steering was a chore. Just made everything difficult. Life is good with my ARB

It was a real bitch when you went airborne racing it and one side landed before the other.... it only broke once doing that but it would hurt for a week afterwards.... the one time it broke i went straight up the wall and climbed the guard rail before i got ti steered back into the pit no way in hell i was letting out,,, hit both walls and the left side one twice something like 250 feet in a 200 foot pit in a little less than 13 seconds with a snapped front end

I think Tim Cameron knows what works in link below


Pirate4x4.Com - The largest off roading and 4x4 website in the world.

.


Just how much heavier do you think rockwells are than trussed, sleeved, steerable 14 bolts?

Maybe 6-700 lbs more with rockwells. Equivilant to about carrying another 4 people all the time.

You watch the pinion move up and down in that front dig video. Any plans for a front traction bar?

No plans as of now. We'll see how things hold up with the new engine. I've been slowly buying up parts for a 514. Cam suggestions are welcome. Looking for a hydraulic roller with idle-5,000 power range. This is what I've found so far.
Crane Cams 359331 - Crane Hydraulic Roller Camshafts - Overview - SummitRacing.com

I have recently acquired the following parts (some have made it onto the current 460):
MSD-6600 my cost- free

MSD-8250 my cost- $80

SUM-850071-1 my cost - $78.16

MSD-35383 my cost - free
Click the image to open in full size.


Parts still to be bought:

Stroker kit - source undetermined. I know I want to run the SCAT based rotating assembly for sure.

SUM-820048

Fenderwell exit headers

The Holley Truck Avenger carb I have will be sufficient to start with but I eventually want to go to propane. I'm going to be pulling a serpentine system off of a 460 van in the junk yard soon as well. I've also recently installed a master cut off, push button start and Autometer 5" tach.

Also liked this flat tappet cam but really wanna go with roller. Lunati 316A1LUN - Lunati Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshafts - Overview - SummitRacing.com


ps- Ya'll will be happy to know that I have traded my 53's for a set of 44" TSL's on 8 lug beadlocks. Plans are to recenter the beadlocks and try out the TSL's. I don't think they'll grab like these cut claws but we'll see.. Either way, they'll probably get comp cut.
