You can use this calculator to try and figure it out.

Spinning over 3000 @ 70 MPH with stock height tire I suspect 3.73 or higher numerical rear end ratio.

Contact me if you want to do a dual elec fan setup and rad w/ shroud. I run it on my car w/o issues. (455 w/ 550 hp)  Fans pull 4400 cfm and only draw 18 amps via brushless motors. Its not the cheapest but it out performs the rest.  PM you remail, I can send you some pictures.

Restoration / Re: Window regulator wheel

There's actually plenty of power window regulators for 70-81 but since they are nearly all slightly different to stock, they then don't get classed as reproduction. In many cases they are only sold direct through power window specialist shops. No idea how they compare to stock replacements. Expensive though if you only need to replace a bush or two, it's more the hassle or removing it all for access. Take lots of pics in every access hole, might be handy for reassembly!

DriveTrain / Roller Cams
« Last post by bluebyu64gp on July 27, 2015, 04:13:05 PM »
Hey all, been a while since I've been on.  Currently in the middle of my 455 build.  So far have HarbBloc up to freeze plugs, bored .040 with boring plate used.  New Eagle 4.250 crank, Scat H Beam 6.8 rods, DSS Forged racing pistons, with new flex plate and balancer.  Set up has been balanced.  Now to start the top end. 

I have decided to go hydraulic roller set up...We (my Dad and I) see some fairly inexpensive roller lifters on eBay.  I'm sure not made is USA...Are these any good???  I'm guessing probably not the best, but just checking it to see if anybody here has tried them or know somebody that has.

Engine will be running ported 6X-8 heads and ported intake manifold...

Eventually going E-Heads...but going with what I have for now and the budget it fits in.
