    I know from past experience that you can shim the alternator out away from the mounting bracket to get it to line up. I know that there is an issue right now with the pulley and water pump. I know that switching over to electric setup doesn't fix that, instead it removes that part of the problem. Besides I will need the electric fans when I go to LS on the truck.

    Or you need a different water pump pulley?? I'm not a old shebby small block guru, but I can't recall any alternator shims.
  5. Random thought thread

    I was stuck at home with doing the brakes on the wife's car, installing a faucet, mowing the yard, then realizing the re manufactured caliper I bought had a screwed up bleeder screw so I had to bleed it with vice grips. I took it to the dealership this morning because I had to study last night, and I do not have time tonight to screw with it. I like taking my daily drivers in and only tinkering with the non-daily cars. Also I got a new water pump/alternator belt for the truck, and I measured the water pump, it is indeed a short pump, the water pump pulley is roughly 1/8th of an inch further forward than the crank and alternator. Either I need to shim the crank pulley/harmonic dampener and alternator, or I can see about going to an electric water pump and fan setup.
  6. They only ran the quick 16 in eliminations. I didn't make that group. The silver crown vic above would have, but he didn't have a cage so they booted him out the group.
  7. I read about qualifying, so do you have any elimination results by now?

  12. Found it... Density Altitude: 2485 feet Relative Density: 92.93 % Drag Times says my corrected ET is: Stock and Mildly Modified Naturally Aspirated Engines 12.741 @ 112.285 MPH I find that hard to believe, though.
  13. It was in the hot and humid when I was up there last. Wonder what the DA was when I ran.
  14. It was hot. 99* when I got there at 4:30. DA was 3300-2700'. I ran a couple 11.1's and an 11.08. Not impressive. I'm not sure that's all due to the heat, but it's possible. I qualified 26 of 34 cars and ahead of Larry Dixon.
  15. Last week

    ^ It dawned on me later that the 4l80e was installed behind the 6.5 turbo. A slug of an engine, but quite torquey compared to a sbc. Trannys held up fine in those trucks.
  18. Random thought thread

    The 4l80e would be fine with it up to about 800ftlb. You would need some type of stand alone controller though. Above that it would need an input shaft and a better direct drum/sprag.

    I wish I new more anything about the fuel mods necessary for that. And if the front suspension would tolerate that much engine, I'd look at that the 12v option. I wonder what a 4l80e would think about that torque/vibration? I've love to fix the KDP issue, install the engine, close the hood, and not have to think about the engine ever again.

    12v with a compound turbo
  21. I think I'm leaving about 3:30. I'm trying to miss some of the heat.
  22. What time are you going Mike I might go up?
  23. Random thought thread

    You definitely need the 12v cummins!
  24. Random thought thread

    lol at it all! I'm tempted to put a 12v Cummins in it just to eliminate this confusion... Hmmm..it's worse when the drunk teacher schools ya...

  26. Finished. I had to let the silicon dry overnight, but I'll fill it up and try it out tonight.
  27. Oh the life of a pasty white Scottish lad. LOL
