  1. Sure hate to see you spend all that money & it only be a boost leak of some sort

    Guess the blower did the damage? Those small journal’s good for that rpm & compression? I drag raced for awhile; ran small block 400 & shifted at 7400; (poor man engine) had trw pistons ( 2477?) I think; small dome; Lunati roller; some nascar Chevy aluminum heads that we had to make valve covers for (can’t remember; thinking something about the pushrods) 588 gear; powerglide, in a 72 nova; ran 5.77 in a 1/8th. It would set 60’ marker with rear tires. It was fun! 1 dominator carb, no nitrous
  3. I was hesitant to make statement. Looks like been modifications on frame maybe? Truck looks very good elsewhere; dash not butchered up & engine compartment looks very good too. Can’t remember if I have ever seen ih on differential
  4. Looks like it’s got ih on the differential

    Night time illumination devises

    All that auto stuff is nice but; all the people that drive now don’t understand the proper way & undoubtedly don’t know if it’s not automatic. Most of the folks now know how to read the fuel gauge & if the low fuel light doesn’t come on there in trouble.

    mack 18 speed question

    That’s true on a Mack transmission; only difference is the knob; but it is made to split in either or high & low; you don’t need a steering wheel holder driving anything but an automatic of some sort

    mack 18 speed question

    I really liked my Mack transmission; but they don’t shift as fast as an Eaton, But I believe they are better performers with that triple shaft in heavy applications
