Forgive me for my ignorance, but, what's a "center cap"?

center cap goes in the center of the wheel. Fronts are open rears are closed.

No rear bumper because my old one needs modded to fit but I want to wait and get something similar to a marlin rear bumper.

I was talking about the front bumper, but it might have just not been visible at that angle. A rear bumper is a must if you want to keep that thing looking good, I pushed a big bolder out of my way with my rear bumper the first time I wheeled my rig. I proudly have a huge battle scar on my rear bumper now. Rear bumpers are good for recovery points too. your sliders and front bumper look pretty good on that.

Center caps cost me $12 I have no worries. Rear bumper will come when funds allow. Work paycheck isn't that great.

hopefully you have some stubby center's cause if they get dented on a something... you'll have a hard time getting them back out of the wheel.

Just read through the whole build, nice and clean. I also started out with a long bed.

I was joking about the center caps. There's a great deal on these center caps at Marlin right now.

Finally got some video of the beast in action! Did some crawling and some mudding. Need lockers, bigger tires and dual T's but it did pretty good for what it is.

Videos include me and a few buddies. Good stuff!

There's two videos, second video has more of my truck:

I've been trying to hunt this probem down forever and just can't find it.

I have a 20r motor, hedman header, 2.25 exhaust and a 32/36 weber carb.

Anywhere after 3/4 throttle my engine bogs and nearly shuts itself off. Doesn't matter if I gradually give it throttle or slam it. Runs great up until that last 1/4 of throttle. Anywhere in the 3/4 range truck runs great, I just can't give it any more.

It also bogs horrible under load such as cilimbing steep inclines or being in sand/mud.

I have a very small air leak between my header and exhaust flange, but don't think this is the problem because it was much worse before I attended to it and I didn't notice a change. I also got a weber jet kit and played around with jet settings for a week and never got a difference. I'm told that may be off too so here's a picture of my current settings:



It could be my fuel filters but there only 2,000 miles old, but it could be my distributor isn't advancing right too. Anyone else have some ideas? Wenesdays my day off and I'm going to tackle it some more.

I had a leak between the header flange and exhaust. I sealed it nearly tight and it didn't change at all. Can't feel nor see any leaks from header and block.

How would I check around the carb?

Spray starting fluid or similar around the entire base of the carb and see if the RPM's increase.
