haha well it wasnt hard to figure out what I needed to do at the track.

Darryl I owe you 2 90s, and 2 85s dont let me forget.

So I am gona go with a holley volumax mech pump(same as carter 172) keep the 3/8ths line(through research it will feed my motor just fine), and I am gona put in the new sumped as tank. Gotta be the cheapest fix/et ever:D

I am also gona do some tricks to the front suspension...so uh I can do some big ol wheelies. These tricks were handed down to me by the driver of the green weenie:D

Do share the tips...I'd love to hang the front tires in my buggy, too. :yes:
The only way my Elky will see air under the front tires is if the tow truck has me on 'the hook'

That would only cause the rear to sag a bit.....
Maybe if I put jackstands under it 1/2 way down the frame.....

Brian,congrats on the new motor and the new ET
The Holley you mentioned that is like the Carter 172 will work just fine with the stock 3/8 line..I know a few people that ran that set up with BBC 540's deep into the 10's with MPH close to 130 :)
Lose the sock for sure and the sump is not a bad idea,but not required.

Got the battery box mounted today, tried to take off the rear bumper but it might as well be welded to the car. Gona fight with it on saturday mornin.

I dont know what I am gona be doing for fuel system:sad:

Everything I think of doing is pointing me torwards fuel cell with a 1/2" line. So I am also gona take the pass. seat out and try to see if I can fit both slicks inside the car.

Also Mike I tried calling you today but found out you were still working. Just wanted to know if you wanted to help out with the fuel system front suspension since Tim is gona be on the D/L with his surgery next week.

My plan for the front suspension is new ball joints and control arm bushings. And a couple little secrets.

Brian, when I did my fuel system, it was only marginally more expensive to run the 1/2" line than the 3/8". I realize it might be overkill at the present time, but an 8-71 might find it's way home to my place one day. It was easy to do it at this stage. I went with the fuel cell only because my car didn't have a gas tank when I got it. I picked up the 20 gal cell off a circle track guy for $100.

Now that it is all in and quite functional, I'm glad I went that route. Maybe you'll find the same result.

Got up early this morning to go shrimping, by the time I got in and got everything cleaned up in was already 3:00pm. I headed into work after that, should get out of here around 11:00 and then back at 6:00am to my regular shift for the rest of the week. I'm up for helping out after the weekend, just give me a call. I have some experience with the control arm bushing rebuild, its good fun...:noway:

That is why I took the control arm to a guy and he installed the new bushings..
