  1. I always loves the way the albins shifter feels we are now producing shifters for the Seq Trans have done some testing and think they work pretty good couple of pics of the shifter before paint
  2. lol, as you know most DD sand car guys call the chassis a dual sport, then the dual sport guys call them Prerunners,

  4. Damn those are fighting words lol it is a True Desert Dynamics pre-runner chassis, would think it is about the same as my car, mine came in on a set of Longacre scales at 3600, on the same scales the Tatum black widow was 2300 and the gen V funco was around 1950 holds 27 gallon fuel cell I talk to John today and think he was keeping the car, but that can change from month to month

    LS7 vs LSX454

    I have owned both and built many of both I have also had both in my car, I don't know you car, but for my application the iron block is way better, I have a DD car with boxed front arms, I hated the aluminum block in both my DD boxed and non boxed DD cars, these cars are very heavy in the front and the aluminum block for me made it over steer Both motors for a crate engine do need work for a sand car, LSX block, this was designed for strength in mind with low extended RPM use, the LSX has only 2 drain back holes .400 front and rear and pools up oil and has bad oil control in the upper end and can starve the motor, this motor does not contract or expand as much as other blocks so it loosed oil pressure quicker than a aluminum block when oil temps get over 220, we change the oil pump out to a M355 and add a copo camaro style spring but with more spring tension, this will help this motor out, we sell the oil spring for around $22 if you need one or they are $100 from GM, I really like my 454 spins up like any ls motor, my personal motor was built from the bottom up from us, we added 6 upper drain back holes like the RHS block and went to head studs and TIE BAR lifers, don't like the factory guides, LS7 motor used, we have had ls7 blocks that have had cracked sleeves or worn sleeves, the motor factory I would not use, to make it easier we covert them to a WET SUMP like a ls1, like Bruce said at CBM we change out the valves, I like the del west Ti valves but check them for straightness, we also use SS or Inconel Exhaust valves and upgrade the guides to a performance bronze guide, no matter if the motor is brand new or used, also you will want to add a real cam and dual springs and chromo pushrods to the LS7, the factory titanium rods are stronger than a stock ls rod but not even close to a H beam rod like the LSX or Stroked motor kits, also the LS7 sleeves are thin and can crack or wear easy so be carful on a used motor, this is a great block for DARTON Sleeves My opinion, and I get opinions everyone has, is that if the car can handle the weight the LSX will need less modification for a sandcar if purchasing new, if you are stuck on aluminum another option that we do allot that is popular is DARTON Sleeving the block, not all blocks can be sleeved, the ls1 is very thin and can crack and leak water, the LS3 is also not a good block to sleeve and is very thin, the LS2 and the 5.3 block has the most cast aluminum, and works the best, you can also sleeve the Iron block, when sleeving a block we stay around 4.165 so we can use a factory style gasket, if going bigger it will be a cometic style gasket and the R finish is Hi so they can leak, unless both the heads and the block meet the R finish so unless you can get a RA50 finish you can have a issue,
  6. Correct John is taking the car out this weekend, I will see if he is keeping or selling, it really depends on the construction market in socal

    CV Grease

    I just have never been impressed with the swepco, the belray I thing I would try with a mantek mixed with belray, the swepco was just so thin by itself it leaked out, and the belray was really chaulcky after a couple of heat cycles,

    CV Grease

    the issue I had with Belray mix was the cvs pitted the first season on a new set of GKN's but they never clicked
  9. J Alper

    CV Grease

    for me on a sand car Belray was the worst, it got very chaulky, also belray is a anti seize that is why some mix it, still feel the Mantek is one of the best for a Sandcar

    CV Grease

    I tried the Mantek now certified labs years ago, for a sand car works amazing, it was the Elite, with C-sulfite now we went to the Extreme for higher heat with A-sulfite, we sell them for $17 a tube, I have tried, Bellray, Bellray mixed with 101 molly, straight 101 Moly, Cat Gold, Neo, and RCV Moly so far the Mantek/Certified has held up the best to staying tacky,

    Can Anyone Beat A Funco?

    the good thing about a funco, is that the chassis has not changed below the dash so you are buying a 2005 car with 2019 pricing,

    parking ticket advice

    at least they did not tow it, that could have been $200-500 really depends on what your time is worth, I would pay it and just move on for me it is not worth the frustration of going on and on with this company, but like I said it is really what your time is worth

    Power steering

    not sure what unit at EpowerSteering , but it looked like Kartek was cheaper and more complete
  23. J Alper

    Power steering

    I can see going to electric if you had no steering, but everything is there so you can make a new bracket wider then add a pulley between them and you are done at very low cost,
  24. J Alper

    Power steering

    see how much rap is around the 6rib, on the balancer and the power steering, this is done by adding the idler between the balancer and the alternator, so on your setup it would be like the alternator
  25. J Alper

    Power steering

    why would it not squeal? if you look at the ls1 belt line they almost have 75% wrap around every 6 rib drive pulley if the bracket was refabed to add a idler pulley between the power steering and the balancer, than that would fix the squealing issue,
