    Same size tire as my taco I just drug home.
    track width and wheelbase will be smaller on mine.

    I wonder what it weighs in at..

    HOTRODS ARE SLOW>> :(
    got a 71 IH 1100 series in the shop right now for a n/a 7.3 swap.
    and T-19.
    il be starting a new thread on that here in the next few days
    a little update on the manchero.
    mocked up boost anf fuel pressure gauges for the show last month.
    and i kinda dig the placement.
    so i have 2 other gauges to add to it and cover up the radio spot.

    new build is underway! rotating assembly includes IDIT, balanced, .020 shaved off the new slugs, total seal 2nd comp ring.
    along with being coated.
    Anderson is getting really good at coating these things!
    my first set was-eah....
    this set rocks.

    yup, 4 psi isnt enough. i dont think the pump is doing its job still.
    15 psi of incomming fuel pressure.
    hope to get to time it today
    but it was really advanced, by the clatter.
    i retarded it a bit but its still not right

    When is it ever enough? Just picked up some squeeze for the shop truck yesterday... that’s really weird to be cleaning up all the smoke with such low boost
