Yay, back on the build!
Any thoughts on the 261 cam and what your plans are on that end.
I'm at 5k-ish miles on the rebuild and I am loving my setup. I have also driven my buddies rig a few times on big road trips (which is a recent rebuild with 35k miles, DT/open exhaust and a 252 cam) and my truck is just destroying it on all fronts. Better pickup and better mpgs, and quieter valve train. Granted, it is a bit apples to oranges since he is running 33's and 410's, and I am 35s / 529s. I still have to do my first valve adjustment after the rebuild so I am hoping to gain a littler performance there.
Yes, I’m back at it.
Very happy to read that your engine is catz-a$$!!
I’m concerned that you have NOT adjusted the valve lash before 5,000 miles!!!!!?
I’m not feeling the “power” with this rebuild that I thought I’d feel. I still have some tuning to do, but it’s feeling sluggish. Only 200 miles on the break in, but I think it should be more peppy than it feels.
I talked to my good friend engine builder and off-road racer today. When I get the tranny back in and the rear diff seal fixed I’m going to let him listen to it and drive it.
I’ll post up a report.
