Default Pulling truck project

Thought I'd share a couple of the many things I've been working on this winter. Although with all the rain we've gotten in the last 24 hours, I'm thinking of starting on an ARK... LOL

Looks nice, I like the dash. Is that an 89 or a 90? Can't tell for sure, but I recognize the buttons on the doors

What motor you puttin in it?

Answers;

It is a 1990, and for next season, I'm thinking of getting a 1 lung Briggs from Cutter to keep things fair for the Chebbie boys. :evil: Actually it has a 468 cu in Ford mill and has had a built C6.

For the last 3 seasons, I've been running a Dana 60 front with a Detroit locker from an 87 F350 and the original 90 vintage Sterling 10.25 with a lincoln locked rear, but for the 08 season, I've got a Eaton H110 rear axle to replace the Sterling. Folks sell the Sterling short in my opinion cuz, after 3 seasons, the only issue I've had is one u-joint failure. I'm still working on a new trans for the 08 season. I know what I want to use, but $$ may be an issue! Also, I've been running down and back headers, but they have been sold and a set of uprights are in the works along with a custom tuned carb.

I'm not all that familiar with pulling, so forgive me if I don't use the right lingo. Last time I went to a competition they only had 1 monster truck for the entertainment. Before that we were frequent spectators, but I don't think it's been a separate event around here for years, or if they've even had a pull here.

What "class" does your truck run in? How many events per year do you compete?

Nice truck, I have been a big fan of truck and tractor pulls for a very long time, as well as a NTPA member. Usually I have toyed with the diesel side of the competition.

Default Diesels

I thought about going diesel, but it is simply insane what those guy's are spending to be competitive. Even at the "stock" level they have to spend a large amount of money to be competitive. And besides, there's just something about the roar of a well tuned V8, right up there close to sex in my book......
