    circle track rear gear ratio info needed

    I do as mentioned. Find what trans gear ratio, diff gear, and rpm. I use 2nd gear 2.022:1, with 3:30 diff on one track. 3rd gear 1.384:1, with 4:30 at another. 7500 chip

    Wheel hop. 68 383 4 spd

    A whole lotta other stuff has to happen in harmony with the snubber for best results . Bolt a snubber on a stock chassis may help, - weight transfer, shocks, preload, all need attn as well . Using the info in the Mopar Chassis Manual helped Calvert make something shiny to sell, - but perhaps...

    Mike, this would be a great place to look for that 8 1/4 side gear. Perhaps put up a want ad .

    Are you actually test driving the vehicle, or just revving it up in your driveway with no load ?

    My kids put an injection kit on theirs, they ruined a cap, the final line of the instructions said - "set the total timing to 32* - 34*" jmo .

    Yet he is still running those plugs, does that suggest a novice . The original post states "plugs are rich", is that how YOU read them ?

    340 Chugging instead of Reving

    All my schooling and experience has taught me to eliminate all the obvious easy stuff before going deep . I'm not saying the plugs are THE cause, but that oil fouled plug will likely misfire under load . If it's still sucking oil, that's a vacuum leak, is that okay, let's ignore it ! Do you...

    Just for grins and giggles, put some new plugs in it, probably solve problem for a short while, then read the plugs again . They may tell a different story . If not, my asshole's sucking wind . EDIT

    340 Chugging instead of Reving

    I maintain your spark plugs are telling you it looks like one plane of the manifold is sucking oil, with probable vacuum leak. The other runner, not so much. That oil is coming from somewhere . Perhaps put a vacuum guages on it . My mentor had me read EVERY spark plug I took out, prob nearing a...

    You need to rotate crank 360* after TDC compression stroke to get overlap, or look to #6 for equal overlap when #1 at TDC compression .

    I've found that with the extreme voltages were using, and improved quality of induction pick-ups, that if the timing lite pick-up is alongside or near other wires, it will trigger the light with multi strikes . I found isolating the wire, or placing the induction pick-up away from other...

    Valve to piston clearance

    As mentioned, your cam timing's outta whack. The Toyota engines I race now have 20 thou shims to stack on the block when the factory turbo'd them. Bigger turbo, more shims. Back in the day, we tagged 4 - 5 welds on a sacrificial valve, sharpen, then use a piece of fuel line and clamp to limit...

    How much gain with lower gears?

    Get it to hook first. Can't get any accurate info if you're spinning the wheels 60'. Cheers.

    Acting like one cylinder firing lean.

    On pass side of carb , there's a lever on the very outside of the linkages connecting the front to rear shafts, there's a piece that is supposed to push the secondary closed. You likely need to adjust ( bend) the tab to get the sec to close at idle.. Look closely, to understand before you...

    Need Opinions. Have nothing to compare to.

    You've done more than most to find extra power, ie.dyno tune. I'd move over to the charger.. If you feel you just can't leave it alone, try a bigger carb, 850ish, for a bigger, easy bolt on boost. Jmo

    Safe rpm

    If you have a smart phone, most have an accelerometer chip in them, download a g-meter app. Use that to find what rpm your acceleration starts to fade, a hundred under that is optimum shift point.

    Crankcase Evac Pump

    With so much blow-by,, there has to be a point,, without adequate venting,, that the crankcase pressure will actually start to blow the rings off the lands, causing more blow-by,, and the pump (like having more breathers) may relieve that pressure allowing the rings back on the lands, and more...
