This one had sentimental value to me. It took $7K to get it to that level.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Mick I wish I had something like that to work with. I'm stuck with my old Dana for now. Looking forward to see how your QC deal and build turns out.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

No real updates. All my motor stuff is still out. We are two months in on rods and pistons. It's PRI Show week so all the performance folks shut down to go there. I'll be lucky if the rods and pistons show up before the end of the year. My new lifters came in though. we went with BAM lifters. They are DLC coated axle no bushing or bearing. My rear end is sitting in the floor. I need to put it back in but that's no big deal. I just hope I don't get hung out till the last minute. Our first race is the last weekend of February.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime



Well the rear is back in. Ken came out yesterday and helped me bleed the brakes. The money I wasted on this gear experiment would have more than paid for new slicks that I need.

I guess the light was shining just right though the window. Ken noticed this wave inside the bed. I guess it may be a good thing the tailgate is bolted on. It may have saved other parts of the bed when the frame broke.

Just a random pic. I think my gauge cluster will look good out in the daylight.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I wondered if the bed suffered any stress from the frame rail issue & that sure suggests it did. Doesn't look too bad though so there's that....

Progress is looking good.
Merry Christmas!

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Yep it is what it is (in a Forrest Gump voice). It is what it is. This poor old truck. I wonder if it could have had a better life? Merry Christmas to Everyone.

No parts right now other than new slicks. I'm still waiting on rods and pistons. I hope I get to race in February.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime


This is where we are at now.


This is where I need to be in six weeks. I got word from Rick that my heads were ready. I also got word from Donnel that my rods and pistons should be here next week.

Well I went and got my heads yesterday. We got pistons last week so the block is finished for the pistons. Still no rods as of Friday. Damn!

I like the way you think Karl. Maybe a bigger block too. 5.3 bore space billet stuff would be cool. Ya'll start a Go Fund for me. Lol
