77 F350 xtended 4x4 build
i figured i would start documenting my setup here and ask for ideas.
its an extended cab short bed. (i love these things)...
i have a d3 running engine in the truck. solid, stock bottom end. i am building an everyday work/camping truck. needs to pull my 68 jeep around. =)
i just put my d0ve c heads in the machine shop yesterday. i am going to clean up the intake and port out the exhaust.
i have a performer coming in the mail shortly.
comp cams extreme 4x4 X4262H will give it life. the cam is rated for heavy tow on stock converter.
i am also putting the new street demon 750 spread bore on it. i want it running on the small primaries until we need, then it had better smoke em down. =)
1" phenolic 4 hole will be ported to match the carb (and goggle valve) then rounded on all 4 (3) holes for smoother flow.
i am going to buy one of scotties dizzies.
its sitting on 38's, but i have a set of 40's that will be going back on it when i purchase the 4th tire (the guy had a blow out, threw the 38's on, then sold to me).
i dont know the ratio yet, i will pull the cover here shortly and check it all out, then hit it with a gear calc for correct ratio-stock.
stock divorced transfer case. several inches of lift. it comes to the bottom of my nose and i am 6'2".
dana 60's front and back.
i am thinking of notching the performer intake right at the spot where the rear barrel is like the performer RPM airgap. a little notch in there to help when i put it down..nothing big, just a lil help below that big goggle valve.
i bought a edelbrock double roller that i might save for my high performance build. i will need to get my other chain and make sure its strait up, then put it on it.
it should run great...after i jet the carb for this 4000 feet.
the torque should be REALLY snappy with that spread bore vacuum secondary....like the old quadrajets. atleast itll be loud like they were..=)
i LOVE that sound..=)
more to come.
