I sure wish I could download my jack of all trades knowledge (and nothing else) into my grand kids brains. They are doomed. Sat. I was at the local junk yard getting a pickup bed and there were 3 kids with only one old enough to drive, walking around with a tool box looking for parts and trinkets to sell on the internet. Did my heart good to see that. The owner of the yard thought it was pretty cool also.

If you are talking about those $150 ebay radiators, yes I have them on my stock FE Galaxies. I've had zero issues with them and are they ever welded nicely. Last one I bought even had the tanks polished.  How they do on hp stuff I can't say yet. I was thinking of buying a couple of extras just because I can't imagine they will; be around too much longer at those prices.

That certainly is a right nice pillow there.

Here you go. Got this from my grandma in the early '70s. No idea where she got it. One of the best wrenches I have.

Some clutch slippage and a vac. secondary. make the bog work for you. I love my close 4 sp. and 3.50 gears, although not the hot ticket for hole shots, it sure is fun to grab gears.

110 MPH at 3400 RPM? That's some serious overdrive.

I'd look at what other guys are running. Hard to get any traction on the street with that big motor. If you get it to a prepped 1/4 strip, it's a whole different ball game. I'm with Lance on the Towel City tires. At the least you'll look cool with those pie crusts.

Maybe try cracking open the secondaries a little and closing the primaries a tad to keep the proper idle rpm and see if that helps. you'll have to pull the carb as the set screw adj. is from the bottom most likely.

Sanderson says not to use gaskets. Run a bead of hi temp silicon around each tube and let it harden over night, then install. I used permatex copper and it is still working.

I am in the same boat. 445 with BBM heads. With the current unavailability of intakes, it was either this or an Offy I had on the shelf. You can always change it down the road, but ain't she cool.

I had a 73 351c that had a chain jump one tooth on the cam gear and it started and ran fine other than it had no power at all. Was slow to rev even in neutral. Couldn't believe the chain jumped with only 50k miles.

It's ok to be a dick.  After FElony got banned, it left a lot of room for us amateur dicks.
