    Finally tested the 56s and 64s on the old backyard ramp.
    The front had more but the rear tire was stuffed against the inner fender.

    No problems with the square shaft yet. I do have total clearence issue with it and the header though. I believe I've got the wrong headers. I'm going to try another set of 4x4 long tube headers.

    Are the 63's holding up ok?

    Still have mine to trade for 56's or give you mine when I find some 56's.

    Looks good. I need to get moving on mine pronto.

    63s still holding up. I may have to get those from you when you find some 56s. How about some updated pics of your rig.

    Steering pump still wants to wine. I think I must have air or something in it, could have something to do with that loose fitting at the ram.:doah:

    :haha: :haha: Updated pics of my rig haha. Haven't done a thing with it lately.

    Lemme know Steve about those 56's and I'll let you know about those tops and doors. I may or may not have a set of zero rates for you too, just depends on how much stuff I can get done at work. Which is not going all that well, considering I have blown up two engines in the past 10 days :doah: .

    No pics yet. One was rather uneventful, EGR cooler ruptured and locked up the engine at full load. (2300 rpm)

    Other one dropped a valve at 2300 which resulted in a busted cylinder liner and crunched cylinder head.
