what kind of muffler you putting on? a Turbo type.
I like the 38s except when starting on a hill.
I had a flywheel cut down to 10 also but Im scared to run it. Might explode.

Yeah we went with a Turbo and 2" pipe. I've never had any problems with the 38. The flywheel in my truck is lightened too and I haven't had any issues: So I'm keeping a good thought with the car. It's nice to have it on the road again!

My 521 I wish i went with a stock Walker turbo type. The quiet ones.   At 65 this truck is making me go deaf. I got a Dynomax Super Turbo which is fine up to abut 50. after that its the weber and not carpeting thats killing me.


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

Mine's a little loud too ( I don't have carpet either), I may put a resonator on it...My brake booster went out, so I'll have to get one. I have a vacuum cap on it for now. And I'm having a fuel delivery issue with it now. I did set the carb and timing on it before these other issues popped up. I wired up the tach today and it works perfectly: Really happy with that!

We fixed the fuel delivery issue today. The hard line was plugged, so we used compressed air to clear it. It took about 10 minutes and now it runs great! I still have to replace the brake booster on it.

I sold the wagon to make room in the driveway for the Caddy. The wagon didn't have A/C. The Caddy is the one that has it and I just need to convert it over. Thanks for the heads up!
