    Well i got shocked again today, And it was the worst one out of the three times i been shocked grabbing the Dist cap, then i talked my brother into grabbing just for laughs, Looks pretty funny to see somone else get shocked lol, But the rubber gromet that goes between coil and cap was some how folded causing it to ground out, and shock the [censored] outa me, we fixed that, timed it, Adjusted the valves, and i can ACTUALLY FEEL power, omg it feels good i havent been in a good mood for over a week because of this, I dont think i will light my truck on fire now, I get 5:13's and a detroit in the rear, heres another questoin, are 5:13's too low? will my pinion be too weak? im running 39.5's. Thx for everyone who responded to my earlier post,

    good to hear. let me know when your ready to go play. I would talk to Darrel about the gear strength. he told me that the 5.13's are still very strong in the 1 ton running gear.

    i think it would be ok in th 1 ton setups also.. much bigger gears to work with... a dana 44 might be scary with that gearing... /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/confused.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    it says in your bio that you have 4.88 gears already.not good enuf?i would think this would be amply low for 39's.is this truck driven on the road?i would not want that lower like the 5.13's you are changing to,but thats my .02 /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif
