Post subject:  Another S10

Hey guys, Thought I would post a few picks of what I have been up to. My truck had a 408 sbc in it when I bought it. The rear end was a 9" with 35 spline axles, ladder bars and coil overs. This year I decided to upgrade some things. I had a new rear end setup put in. I went with a cm round tube back half and a fab 9 housing, 35 spline axles, 513 gears, and 33x15x15 slicks. I also built a 555 for it. I fired it up on a test stand and will be installing it this week.

The carb is a Holley 1150 that was converted to E85 with QF blocks. The Fram was only on there for start up. I have a System 1 that I will take off the other motor. My first guess was a high 5.80 to low 5.90. Most think 5.50 to 5.70.

Thanks. Key word "HAD" but after seeing it come together I have no regrets.

Be careful with those QF E85 blocks....There really nothing more than a gas block that is green :-s

OK have to ask.........Motor internals??? CR??Cam??Heads? Etc..

Block is a Dart Big M, Heads are Brodix BB2Xtra, Crank is a Callies Magum, Rods are Eagle 6.535 with Wiseco pistons, Cam is a Comp .775-.748 lift 284-292 dur @ .50* 110 lobe sep, Comp rollers and lifters, Intake is a Dart that has had some porting and Nitro Plated.
As for the carb I have a LM2 to help keep a eye on things and I have a back up carb. I bought a 1050 converted to Alky. It has BLP blocks and was deadly on a friends 568. He ran 4.91-4.92 in a dragster.

Most of the time I race at Mountain Park Dragway, London Dragway or Lake Cumberland Dragway. I only get to BG once or twice a year.

I have never been to Bluegrass. Good Luck this weekend!!
It looks like it's going to take a couple weeks to change some things and get the motor in.

I got the last parts I need for the Alky fuel system today. I got a BLP belt drive pump and shut off valve, fuel log and a BLP bypass regulator. Now I need to figure out where to mount a fuel cell up front. I also got a Moroso vacuum pump setup. All this stuff was on a friends dragster that he wrecked.

I'm making a little progress. The 427 is almost ready to pull and I am doing some test fitting on the new one.
