    Hey dp... I got one off eBay a while ago.... I'll check the manufacturer when I get home... I think I paid around 150... seemed like good quality, but I haven't even pulled it completely out of the box, just took a quick look... maybe I'll pull it out a check the fit while I'm at it... I'll post a pic and manufacturer later...
  2. Sorry to hear... but ya it's kind of looking that way....
  3. Oh that's a bit different. You definitely don't wanna cut that piece off... I follow what your saying now.. Only other thing I can say is try standing the driveshaft on end and soak the end in Pb blast or wd40 or something for a day or so even try and make a puddle on top and let it soak down.. and finally heat and that press again... goodluck
  4. So i don't thinks there are spines where that bearing goes, I think the spines end, there just long enough for the end piece that's bolted on ... didnt you say you have a new carrier bearing ready to put back in? Take a look.. is the bore splinded or smooth?... either way just get surgical with a cutoff wheel you should be able to cut deep enough into the bearing in a couple spots to break it off with a hammer and chisel.... I think your still ok ... just it's really stuck...
  5. So i know I posted this else where but I will add it here... I am running a p4070 carter fuel pump... it was putting out 6+psi.. and recently I couldn't start my truck... flooded with gas... well after I installed a regulator and set it to about 3 psi the motor fired right up, the weber was much happier.... 24 hrs later started no problem... so having the correct psi seems to matter, at least I believe it does.. i feel it was causing a rich start and running condition... so know my question is how much was that effecting my air/fuel ratio?. I knew i needed to rejet but now i feel base line from the dyno is wrong from the extra fuel preasure... i I guess the wideband o2 setup will be coming sooner than later...
  6. Ahh that was your secret... watching too...
  7. If you mess with that pin #17 Watch out for that little pin #12... no idea how to get it out but I know i broke the ear on #37, trying... was able to get it welded and rebuild the ear.... but damn was I pissed....
  8. I questioned that too somewhere else... if he's using that dzstart system or something similar it does start and stop... I was told it will keep cranking till you let go to start it.. it has a tachometer sense wire.. so it knows it's running so next push will shut the engine down....
  9. The w53 comes with 42mm intake and 35mm exhaust valves. How much bigger do you think you can go? Doesn't seem like there is too much room left for bigger valve.. just my opinion.. This is my w53 head . While I agree porting will be beneficial, (saving up for that personally)
  10. Little more progress... Kept working on my hinges, in between stripping the paint on my doors, fenders and hood.... Also got the fuel pressure regulator installed.... carb seems much happier... I have it set a out 3.5 psi.... seems to drop about 1 psi when I rev the engine but stays stable....
  11. So i just installed my fuel regulator and personally my weber is much happier.... I set It a little over 3 at idle and dropped about 1psi when I reved the motor and stayed steady... in my case 6psi was to much, it was causing a flooding situation and wouldn't start.... I still need to rejet but it starts every time for me now. I my situation it mattered....
  12. I can second that mike on taking one apart, comes apart easy but what a pain to get it all back together right.. and still in the truck i can only imagine... he's right on the shim pack and single oring for the steering column tube. I Took mine apart to paint it during my rebuild.... mine actually developed a crack in the shims which was causing a leak. I was able to index the crack to the top edge of the box.. got lucky ... I'd try mikes suggestion first....
  13. That's a great upgrade... saving those type upgrades till after I get mine on the road, winter projects for me. I just wanna drive mine... it been to long.. can't wait to see it all installed....
  14. Hey charlie.... good to hear from you.. That's exactly why I added a regulator... and what my concern was with the extra psi. And tikka, you should look up what you carbs want for psi and set it for that...
  15. That's exactly what I have too and I think I read the same info when I chose mine.... I did find mine was putting out a little over 6psi to my carb.... so I decided to run a regulator .... I was looking to get it down to around 3...
  16. I agree on measuring.. but I'm wondering more about all that heat in that one location... would that cause a weak spot in the crank?.... Or put it out of balance even?
  17. So Mike In this scenario is that crank junk now? Is it not even worth regrinding?
  18. That really does look like it melted that bearing.... definitely spun on the crank.... If your lucky what we are seeing is all melted bearing material.... I did that on my atv spindle once.... I though I junked my spindle, turn out to be what was left of the bearing, spindle was perfect underneither .... One idea I had... and don't get aggressive with it is to See if any of it can easily flake off... carefull not to scratch or gouge what is good.. even use a small file on the journal and see if it comes off or not... might give you an idea if its bearing material melted to the crank or the crank is scored up....
  19. Jersey which carter? Do you remember?...
  20. Ya that looks pretty nasty.... rods and crank... I'd say you might need a new donor....
  21. Maybe.... I couldn't verify how that other pump operates... I thought it was a solenoid style not a rotary vane... I liked the p4070 anyhow.... I just personally think it's a better design for a non return system..... whatever keeps them running right.....
  22. Well just realizes it all beebani's stuff.... looked it up and answered my own question. . But i didn't see a mention of what spindle assemble and ball joints you use ....
  23. Ok I'm officially jealous.... I can tell obvious ball joint conversion, what else is that setup.... Coil overs?... What's that adjuster on the lower arm? Does it get rid of that long arm that goes to front of the trucks?.... What spindles do you use now?
  24. Did you buy a bypass style, designed for a fuel return system? Dont know if thst matters or not... This was the info I was supplied with my regulator....
  25. Ah different designs.... inline 5/16 inlet/outlet 4psi 30gph vs rotary vane 3/8 inlet/outlet 4-7 psi 72gph.... seems like either with work.....
