    Took my Bobbed Deuce down the 1/4 mile track today... (timeslips inside)

    So I finally took my bobbed deuce drag racing today. The event was an annual diesel truck show at State Capitol Raceway in Port Allen, LA. Using past experience from racing days gone by I made sure to have the least amount of fuel possible (1/4 to 1/2 tank). And I stopped off at the bathroom...

    Going to put my Bobbed Deuce on a Dynojet. Any guesses on the RWHP/RWTQ?

    My buddy owns a business where he makes GM vehicles faster (Camaros/Corvettes/Diesel Trucks). He has an in-ground Dynojet chassis dynamometer. Looking at the dynojet website it lists the maximum axle weight at 3000 lbs. Right now I have the M105A2 bed off my deuce in preparation for painting...

    Turning Fuel Up on a "G Code" Injection Pump - Video

    I put together a video on turning the fuel up on a M35A2 equipped with a "G Code" injection pump. This type of pump doesn't have a FDC (fuel density compensator) that is adjusted on the outside. Instead, a cover is removed over the governor and 2 nuts are adjusted between a bridge plate that...
