The small block look's way to little sitting in there..Need's something BIG !!!!

Might have to go back to the drawing board on the mount's..

With a 671 I hope this time

Causes problems when I mentioned when I was gonna get it back,, so I just dropped the subject,,, I simply don't let him BORROW anything anymore,,

is this the one you were thinking of Borrowing?
You could build one for what it would cost to come and get it,,,

THAT BE THE ONE !!!!!

I really think the ride would be cheaper and worth it.... Cause I wouldn't be coming home with just the motor... I would be bring back a lot of the wisdom, Your custom motor bike,and your project car...Did I forget anything ????

I think an old 671 would be the best for the C cab.

I have seen plenty with real bad tire wear. But they "work" it would have to handle better with it proper. I have never driven a car without it before but it sure seems like those tires wanting to go in opposite directions thru every corner would be noticeable.

The thing is all it takes is steering arms that are designed for the front wouldn't it? As I said, I have never done it but I have seen the steering arms that go out towards the wheels more (with those discs there's plenty of room) and they just bolt on like those so I would think they could simply be used instead?

Here's a few that must be having the same problem with the Akerman angle..
Been ran this way for years,, And people or still building cars this way.... Must not be that big of a deal..... I can say this much.... You can't tell the difference if you didn't see it first.... You can't tell in the ride for sure.... Some can and will say different,,, And I know you will be one of them.... But that doesn't matter..I owned a few with it... And there was no sign's of anything wrong...

On this car I ran the mustang spindles backwards... So I could put the rack on the back side... I used a geo rack.... I ran this car on the road almost ever day on some very long trips...... For a few years.... NEVER once did I have to change the front tires OR get the front end lined up.... If you didn't know it was done that way,,, You would have called me a liar... And there's more then one of this site that can back up what I'm saying... That car is still going strong today.....That's a lot of years to prove it work's...

On my rat truck I built... I had the front end set up the same way as my C-cab.... When the man drove 17 hrs one way to buy it.... The very first thing he said when He drove it.... Was ''I can't get over how good it drives''

And he has many cars.... So I know it wasn't his first ride in one..That say's a lot about a home made car..


Or they the best set up out there,,,, No !!! Not at all.... But you will be surprised at how good they drive... The t-bucket I'm building right now, Has the same set up... I never rode in a t-bucket before this one... I have to say.... I'm thinking about building me one.... It drives so nice... And fun to drive too..
