Looking good, a fresh blank canvas to start the build.

That gas engine also has great possibilities. Talk to a speedshop. Those blocks have a lot of metal and can be built up. Some are even used in truck pulls. Lots of good potential.

Even with stock internals, they respond well to intake,exhaust, and ignition work. They are not high rpm engines, 4000- 4400rpm red line. But nice power in the mid range.

I have the old now Holley pro jection 2D fuel injection on mine. Anyone try the newer stuff? can only imagine how much further the technology has gone, and what gains are to be had with even better fuel management.

ive done some work with MegaSquirt and it is a pretty intense fuel management system if you want to go real deep into it.

Not right now, but at some time yes I do want to get deeper into it. The fuel map on the pro jection is not as tunable as it needs to be. Light throttle is always running rich. Mid range is good though.

My brother had an old cab over camper he was going to scrap, so i grabbed a few things. Stove, fridge, water heater and pump, table, sink, I'll probably grab the toilet, and possibly the black water tank. I don't know how much I'll actually use but it's free. Stove, fridge, and sink will probably be used at least to get the rv title and until we do the full conversion. 20190816_151639.jpg
