  1. I have run CDS lines and not had a lick of trouble.  Wimers in Sandy Lake, PA makes lines.  Any pump shop should be able to make them you may have to send them an old line so they can reuse the fuel pencil that goes into the head.  On my inline pump we made two plates and put foam inside them to sturdy down the lines coming out of the top of the pump



  2. My suggestion is pull in the street class. Get a set of one over injectors (.013), borg warner s480 charger, and turn fuel up on pump and get the big governor spring for the v pump which should give you around 2,700 rpms, a fass supply pump, and the big lipe clutch.  You go any further than that hp wise the money will go up A LOT, trust me lol.  Also make sure your air-to-air charger has no leaks in it.

  3. Swap injectors around and see if #7 still does it with another injector and see if the old injector makes the same tick noise in another cylinder.  its likely a bad injector, probably scored.  A good pump shop can fix that pretty easy.

    My Francis heads leaked when we first put them on we ran them so they got some heat on them, let it cool down and re torqued and they sealed.  I torqued mine to 240.

  4. I think there was more Marine e9 motors produced than what people think.  I know American Marine or whatever marinized some.  I think all their motors were painted white.  Daytona e9 mack marines are the aqua green/blue motors.  I know they also made a 2 piece piston for the marine motors.  There was a truck parts warehouse across the street from that kept odd ball truck parts anything from motors to cabs.  Macks, Volvo, Ford, sterling, etc had different parts in this warehouse.  Long story short the warehouse shut down and sold to some local business guys with all parts in them.  There was several complete brand new Marine motors.  Dick Bonner ended up buying them all.  Makes me sick to this day to know they were there and I didnt find out until they were gone


  5. Wow didn't realize I needed to explain. I am far from a freight hauler, and quite honest feel a little offended. I'm actually hunting a used 18 speed for our pulling truck. I feel it is a "NEED" to be able to choose a half gear. Next year I plan to run for points, so every advantage I can gain would be great.

    My three newest granites have 18 speeds I live in the hills of SE ohio and haul in the oil fields so climbing the hills and going in off road terrains make an 18 speed nice if that passes your test or maybe I should switch to hauling freight, you tell me... SMH

  6. You can do over 100 psi boost in a single charger easy, but very expensive to do so. Mine did over 70 last season now it gets around 65psi now with Francis Headers. I am upgrading to a better 4.1 charger this offseason. Albert and I are limited to a 4.1 max.

    What are your EGT's at? Boost is nice, but the secret to make these motors really run lies with EGTs. Also 4,500 is pushing your luck. I am governed at 4k, a lot of guys don't go over 4. Do you have stock heads?
