    Tim, you make it look so easy, then have time to take pictures so you can share with us. You are amazing! The new Y sounds great, I hope the folks next door understand. Good luck!

    I had almost forgot my 62 , it was the same color turquose blue &white the only thing that bugged me was hoe bad it rattled I drove it for a couople of years and traded up to a 66 F-100 and that was a better truck, 352 4 on the floor I loved that old girl but trucks go by the way, I only have room for 1 at a time now I'm working on a 58 F-100 shorty, 350 chev motoer with 350 trans, disk brakes up front and almost ready for some new windows one step at a time. jimd4j

    Maybe bolt the iron heads to the rear axle to hold those tires down to the salt and keep the wheels from spinnen.
     
  21. along with all those sbc blocks in the bed........
     
  22. I don't see there being enough difference to make handling issues. I didn't weight the heads but the truck sits the same. Not like my old FE powered Fairlane, you take the heads and intake off that thing and it sat like the engine was out. :rolleyes:

    Ran a set of CP's and was one of the finest looking pistons I've ever put in an engine. Run Diamond now.....16:1 (static) sbc @ 803 hp on Alky @ 7,600 rpm.
    Fantastic info and advice...my 2nd ring gap (total 3mm) is .023 bigger with a compression chamber between ring lands. Works fantastic !
     
  25. All washed and waxed! Packing up, leave for the salt in two days. See you all there!

    Wishes for good numbers, but even more for a great time for you - you put a lot of work in the trucks & the trips! Great to see some "finished & functioning" stuff that works so well and looks SO good. Very inspiring. Enjoy every minute - breathe it all in, get it all over you.
