I got the new e-brake cables installed yesterday. Noticed it puffed some blue on start ups when it's warm.
Did a compression test on it and they are all 125 -130psi, so I'm thinking valve seals. I'll replace those maybe this weekend. I don't want to use the OEM umbrella style seals, and I'm looking for some positive lock ones. I've seen some CAT engines with 3/8" valve stems, so I may experiment and try some on the 360.
I got it insured and registered today, so of course had to take it for a spin. Not happy with the acceleration... can you say, blah? Maybe I'm used to my 24v Cummins, the 440 in the RC, or the 383 in the Challenger. I'm pretty sure, it's plain slow. I'll have to go through and check timing, etc... do a tune up on it. The plugs looked OK when I did the compression test. It idles well and cruises nice... just no vrooom when you floorboard it. We'll see. Maybe the big block is in order!?
Boons, don't do it... did you see the 6 bolt wheels. Ew! It does look like a sweet ride though. Bet it would be a good little off-road rig. I checked out the local ads for Land Cruisers. Man, are they pricey, but they are good trucks.
Sorry for swiping the Macho from you. As soon as I seen the ad, I had to go look at it. "Must see" was the right wording for the ad. The pictures don't do it justice. I looked for a year or so, and I think it was worth the wait.
