*SMACK* I could have had a V8.....



All these years, i just did not know what I was missing!

Picked up Kate on Friday and wheeled her on Saturday at this new ranch in Katemcy Texas.

It is a BAD ASS place!

The Cruiser group split up when we go there due to the fact that our vehicles are all set up differently.

TXCruiser came over and rode shotgun with me for 1/2 day. The fuel injection took a dump about 5 hours into the day and would not stay running. It would throw a code and then shut off.

If I kept the engine loaded up it did not happen. Oh well, what are the odds of that being right the first time.

Should be an easy fix.

Here are some shots of the place we went, enjoy!

Katemcy ROCKS

I see Birfzilla found his way to Katemcy!

Looks like a lot of fun! I'm gonna have to get that SM465 stuffed into my truck real soon!

Maybe I should find a Chevy 350 someplace and have my V8 too! I can setup Chevy TBI systems in my sleep. No I'm not advertising, just bragging.

Hmmmm, I just helped a friend sell a 94 LT1 motor for $700

Think I made a mistake not stuffing it in the cruiser???





(remember, the turbo is on the boat right now though)

Hey Nolan,
I have loved my V8 for about 15 years now. I'm doing the TBI conversion now. Wish I had found a complete engine instead of trying to marry new parts onto older block. Would have been much sweeter, and I could have sold the 327.

Have you got to drive around and piss your neighbors off yet? You need to put a dump on it so you can run straight headers

Deff. doing to have to go back up there when I get the cruiser back... its just to kick ass up there.
Do you have the guy in the yellow cruisers e-mail addresses so I can send him pics of the cage?
Thanks

BTW...how much did you pay for your cage? I'll give you half of that for it(since its been tested), I'm playing with paintbrush trying to figure outa a freaking cage...

Woohoo! Glad to see that she's alive! My friend had a problem with his motor that sounded like yours... wouldn't run unless it was above 3k and near WOT.. was a bad spark module...

The pics looks awesome.. I want my cruiser to grow up and be just like yours one of these..decades!

And nice spring hanger! Is that one of those new W's designs?

Less than ever actually....I have one more crossmember than before.

I now have one under the tranny, one behind the transfer that the traction bar is tied to and one over the rear axle.

Once I tie the cage to the frame it will be as good as I can ask for.

Those 42's and D60's are a ton of unsprung weight you know

Cool,

Hey, I didn't see and pics of the underbelly of Kate on that run.
Those 60's keeping it shiny side up?
Or are you just getting tired of seeing her on her side???

BTW, Did she get another paint job to fix the damage done in Moab?

I'm planning on coming down to wheel with you either in Spring or fall. Probably fall if we do Los cruces..

Cruces is in Feb.

No I just did a little touch up after Moab...there was very little damage.

I did not wheel long enough to turn over

Good to see you back out playing. Don't get discouraged, took me 3 months of tinkering to really figure out the little quirks with my TBI. Just need to address my fuel starvation issue. Seems to surge and hesitate a bit. Think I may build a surge tank like what was posted here earlier. I'm working on getting there for the weekend of the Harold Stephens meeting. What an opportunity! Any wheeling going to go on that weekend? If so, I'll tow my 40 behing the motorhome and just camp out for a few days. Let me know.

I'll keep you posted as time goes by. Right now the motorhome is getting some major roof repairs. Just hope it's done in time. Been 2 months already.
