    Cory…. Were gonna take that beam out and refurbish end to end… 😎 😎 😎

    We should get painters on an all new 1914cc… carbs, exhaust and gathering tin, alternator etc… you need everything.

    Going to be awesome to have all dialed in!!! Such a great feeling to travel and camp in a bus!! Nothing like it… 😎

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    What kind of gear ratio do you want on this rig? We could keep the stock .82 fourth and go up to a 4.12 or a 3.88 ring and pinion if you plan to drive interstate much?

    I’d probably be on interstates a fair amount if I plan on linking up with you guys on gatherings. Β What would you recommend?

    Depends on your engine choice. 3.88 x .82 or a 3.44 x .89 is what we would typically run with a 2276cc stroker engine.

    I think pushing those gears with a 1914cc or less is going to be a recipe for overheating.

    Probably should go with 4.12 x .82 or 3.88 x .89 if you want the 3/4 shift rpm to less of a jump.

    It takes about 6 weeks to get an exhaust system. What is your preference? A1 sidewinder is the best for power and sound, but the stainless Vintage speed are a little more quiet and easier to adjust valves on. They are about the same price either way.

    Hi Franz,

    Lets go with the Sidewinder please, 6 weeks seems pretty reasonable these days. Β Really excited on all the progress!

    Thanks!
