he is in a box on my nightstand.....keeping an eye on me.
HAHAHAHA, but you can sneak away and he won't hear you!
I heard a story when you where at the parts store about a "Jesus Clip." LOL
I pulled the #1 hole spark plug after the 180 mile trip....I'll try to get John to post a couple of photos. I cannot believe how clean it is burning. by far, the best it has ever ran.
That looks lean to me.......was it running HOT?
not at all.....barely on the first mark....180, right with the thermostat. I verified temp a while back with an infra red heat gun. I do like the chocolate colored electrode. 99% interstate running 65-70 MPH @ 2300-2500 RPM with a few blasts to 100 mph just to check acceleration and vibration. Smooth as a babys butt. If it got hot anytime, I would already be making it richer. Comments are more than welcome.
With today's tuning technology and equipment those plugs may be spot on. ihmo
Is that with EFI,,,,,I forgot
No EFI....old school with two Eldelbrock 1406...front without choke, rear with. Different needles and jets in almost every hole, but the balance is good, all plugs look the same. Progressive linkage, so runs (crispy) on rear carb until you stick your foot in it.
I like that......can we meet in the middle?
That is what we are chasing..eh?
I feel the need....the need for speed!
no new technology on the Ghost Missile....timing light, tachometer, vacuum gauge, seat of the pants (pucker factor) acceleration meter Hot Rod 101....always look for improvement. Might get frustrated, walk away for a day or two.....but never give up and shove it in the corner. I love this forum, the grins, motivation, knowledge and tips I pick up here .......priceless. You guys ROCK!
I know this is old thread but just found this. Wow I never saw a aluminum dana 60,gotta call them.
did you guys take this to Carlisle this year?
no, only room for one Duster in the trailer for the 7 hour haul. The Flash got the nod. The silver Duster is poised in the shop next to the Flash for tomorrow nights cruise. Just need to apply a little tire jizz and its ready to go.
with the Nats cancelled, I decided to adapt the shifter arm mod (pictured) Butch requested for his 72 ghosted California Flash street build to the silver Duster. I never cared for the "factory " spaghetti shift linkage. For both Dusters, the Super Shifter linkage modification is pretty simple, all it takes is a HDK aluminum adapter plate and the arms (Ford Top Loader). Of course, the Flash (post above) already has the bracket, so all I had to do is copy it and figure out the reverse linkage on the street cars.
Nice work as always Denny
while I'm waiting for some shifter arms....thought I would address my 8-3/4 differential.
time to check fit and see what needs to be massaged.
Denny you should write a book. It doesn't have to be professional, just photos of some of what you've done over the years and "outline style" comments and captions.
Thanks for that...building hot rods is fun, but if you guys could peek behind the curtain, you would laugh your ass off. Lifes' been good to me so far (Joe Walsh / The Eagles)
DAMN, over 9 years ...same thread....called "New Hemi Duster - FINAL ASSEMBLY" When is the latter coming? ;)
