On a set of dual tires (truck or pickup) one tire will always be slightly bigger (or smaller) in diameter than it's mate. The brain teaser I have for you is which of the two tires will wear out faster? The bigger tire or the smaller tire? And why?
hey Fatguy...hows that new bigblock running?
Flat tappet or roller?the new motor is running really good, need to get the car into the exhaust shop for mufflers now. i think the INTAKE was milled to compensate or a set of heads that were flat milled, they get lower/closer together when you mill them so the intake needs to be milled a like amount-now throw that intake on a set of heads that havent been milled, and its actually too small to reach ! ( i wondered why it was a pain getting all the bolts in on the intake ). so, solution was a new in the box intake ( we ended up with the performer RPM this time ) and new gaskets. and new bearings. and rings. and cam and lifters. and....why ? because even if they are REMOTELY suspect, im changing them. i do not want to do this swap yet a third time.....
Flat tappet or roller?
is that an invitation?...now you do know we have some of the best sport fishing in the country here.Ok so to make it even more trivial, You got duals on a tractor trailer. Which scenario is more dangerous, Over and under pressure? Why?
Steve, glad you didn't get injured in your fire. I had the float stick on my rodchester 2 jet and it back fired, it was a flame thrower.
Fish, When ya gonna come up and slay some real fish?
but a roller sure is sweet.. in my car, LOL!flat tappet hydraulic, yes i know all the benefits of the roller but just couldnt afford it. by the time you buy all the necessary pieces to support the conversion ( cam, special lifters for non-roller block, special length pushrods,springs,machine work,etc...) it adds another $1000 plus to the already outrageous price tag....if i could afford it i would. but i cant, so i dont. last car built virtually identical to this one went [email protected],and was my daily driver for 4 and a half years before it got sold- cant argue with that....
