When I was in the USAF and got to England in 1985, we had Sicard runway snow brooms with 413 and 440 (depending on the year) engine. I don't remember what the governed speed was, but I do remember seeing the exhaust from the manifolds almost to the rain caps glowing orange after a while... They eventually got overhauled in Germany and came back with Mercedes inline-6 diesels. Depending on use, those Industrial units may not have had many hours, but every one they had was a tough one.

Does seem cheap. Might be a rebody thing or who knows what.

I have never seen it around. Lot of people have moved here from other places recently and are selling their toys so there is a lot of stuff that is new to this area. Also a lot of them moved here and have no toys and are buying local stuff like crazy. Deals go quick, which makes me wonder why this car is still for sale...

Dealer here.

Tax rules vary state to state regards tax savings on trade ins.
Here in Michigan, we have 6% sales tax. The tax savings on trades has ramped up from if I remember right 1500 to the current 8,000.
So, in other words, if the value of your trade is 8k or more, you get a tax savings of 480 bucks, 6% of 8,000.

The regulator has little to do with output and is the simplest part to change.

It's the rest of the charging system that needs replacing and upgrading. Wires, ammeter, fuse links and likely even belt and pulley arrangements like going to double belts.

What's your need for power?

It did make peak at 8000. So the power difference between 7500 and 8000 wasn’t much so that’s why I’m shifting it at 8000.

My car goes 1.19 with this but its a bit too aggressive for it in good weather and a tight track. If I were running 6.0s it would be perfect I bet.

thanks Al for your insight , again .
Always the case of " I want vs I need " .
I see it at work , everyone wants a 700+ HP motor for tootling around and going to the shops . My opinion is unless you are racing why bother ? As long as you can do a burn out on the street just lie about the HP grin .
Andy thanks also withyour comments re Tflow and the boost to a lot of mid level bracket racers . I'm one of them . Now all I need is to get rid of 100lbs or so from the Satellite .
Don't forget some racers dont want the extra SFI parts turnover or extra safety gear that a higher HP / ET car brings . So that sorta easy 700 or so HP number is fine , especially in a dual purpose car .
And yes I have the TF 270s on my 505 and laugh with fellow Ford/Chev racers about how small the port sizes are , even @ Max Wedge size .

I guess I'll leave it in. Don't really want hard shifts nor care about chirping the tires but does leaving it in defeat the purpose of using this particular valve body? Would I be better off just leaving the factory valve body in the trans.? Engine is a 400/470 stroker.

The bad lifters was a problem with hemis newer then that. I think the biggest thing with that year range was more exhaust manifold leak related and things like dropped valve seats and broken valve springs which would cause problems more noticable then a tick,

Well one will make peak 8000-8500 built all out and the other 10,000+ in maxed out form. A generalization but hope it makes for a clearer picture. Also 99/06 stuff is getting harder and harder to come by, they also are VERY short deck height blocks, think smalblock Ford short. And no one makes a block to accommodate the head. So 550ish cubes is the limit. Not really a matter of liking one better they are IMO focused on two different types of racing. Both canmake power. The 99 can make more naturally aspirated at the cost of RPM...The other can be done from bracket NA to power adder stuff and they see to work well. The Wheatcrafts have a few centrifugal Predators making right at 2000hp at low boost levels.

The control arms will always appear stripped.
I recently had one upper ball joint that felt as if it would strip/would not take torque.
I'm a mechanic and I've had issues with press in ball joints at work that were mis-sized.
You measure several different parts and they are a few thousands different.
At the time I just happened to have some new spare front end parts and another new ball joint measured larger than the part with the causing the problem.
The spare ball joint went in and I was able to torque it no problem.

But the drivers window rocker on the driverside two switch assembly is a bit wobbly (for lack of a better word) it seems to have more "jiggle" movement than the passenger window rocker in the same switch assembly.

I have never had a bad plastic tank in any of the 72-87 trucks, ramchargers, etc.

But I have had to find tanks for 88-93 before. Not sure what they did, but something was definitely better on the earlier tanks.

Yeah just mount it on the inner fender of your brand new paint job and it will start melting in a few weeks eek

I had an orange box do that before.

For our race teams we had over the years lots and lots of box vans from Grumman, Supreme, etc. On one delivery from Grumman the delivery driver showed up and I watched and waited for a vehicle to show up to take the driver back to the assembly plant and no one showed up. As I waited the box van delivery driver opens the back door, slides out two folding ramps and drives out a small car with a roof rack. Folds up the two ramps, straps them to the roof of the small car and drives away. shock Never thought a small car would fit inside of a box van but that proved me wrong. That's why I know a full-size car with the right ramps will fit inside of a 26' rental truck and saw it done too. Just saying. wink

I think you can also tow a dolly or trailer for you pickup or tow vehicle behind a 26' truck and do it in one move?
