Its never been in the mud.

This is the first time i've driven it since we put the 429 in it - first time I've driven it in the 3 years I've had it, for that matter, lol. And it will probably never see mud. For one thing I come from a show truck background and don't really see the point in loading it down with mud and make it all nasty. For another thing, the first time I come home with mud on those March Performance billet pulleys, my dad will beat me like a red-headed step child.

Nice truck BBB, but around here, we say..."No sense having a 4X4, unless you have a snowplow on it"

It snowed here again all day yesterday.........

Congrats B3!! It's been a long haul but now you can start supporting the oil and rubber industries. Nothing like cruising in your rod.

That engine is clean enough to eat off of.
I know some Ford guys who would kill their own mothers for that motor-wait can I say that on here?

Looks like its a runner!

I would suggest that you eliminate the plastic tie wraps around the spark plug wires. You might be getting some cross firing because of them. The wires can induce current between them and loose some voltage as well.

You're the second person to mention that, and I as well thought have the wires touching like that would cause them to cross fire, but I keep forgetting to mention it to my dad. I'll see if I can get some of those pimp chrome wire looms.

I just didn't pay it much attention, I've been waiting THREE years on this project to finish and I've been too happy to nit-pick.
