    I got no idea on that one man.. .maybe bad wheel cyls or clogged lines?? On my car I've removed all the original brakes and replaced with a modern hydro booster and master cyl from an astro van and s10 disc brakes

    Dam this car sounds and looks mean!!! Awesome work
    I drive a 92 d250 daily with this engine and being a diesel Mecanic I know what these are capable of have you turned up the pump or done injectors anything like that yet?
    I'm building a 48 merc pickup with a s10 front clip full air 3inch chop i was going olds big block but since seeing this I think iv changed my mind again
    How is the s10 ft clip holding up so far what steering box are you running with it?hows the astro van hydro boost

    S10 clip is holding up pretty good.. I got the motor so far back most of the weight is offset just behind the suspension.. probably have close to 3,500 miles on it since I got it runnng.. the steering box is a factory gm from the s10 I believe its a Saginaw box.. astro hydrobooster is workin great! brakes in my 50 work better than the brakes in my 2008 magnum

    Recently did a little work to the Injection pump on the cummins.. installed a Denny T AFC delete top plate (basicly adds more fuel no air fuel control so my foot is the fuel control) more fuel = roll a lil coal if I slowly roll into the throttle pedal theres no smoke at all but if I stomp rite into it... its a fukn smoke screen!!

    heres a vid from a few weeks ago when I first installed it

    Are the gauges 12v reproductions? Is there a way to make the 6v work on 12v
