    Man, you almost had it. Looks like on one of your running start tries you had good momentum but your rear bumper scraped and you lost some of it. I was rootin for ya. That hill (it did look like a borderline mountain) looked kind of sandy and loose. Those kind of hills suck. You'll get it eventually.

    Its not a flodding Rochester, or a slipping clutch. Not enough grunt?

    Looks like it was just losing traction at the top...

    What I was thinking . It looks like a very good surface for traction . 4xcrazy and I cut our teeth on steep stuff like that when we first got our trucks . Only thing different is we had open diffs and gov locs , all terrains , and highway gears ............. and loose dirt :D



    NO offense to the parties involved , I just KNOW he could make it .

    I don´t have any more power and would need other gearing can´t afford any now :mad: .
    The gravel at the top will soon be down the hill so it will be clean then I will win ;) .

    Here's a couple of pictures too. Look at the rear tires. It's nothing wrong with the grip, just needs more power:D

    Naw, I think your 6.2 alittle tired. Foot-to-the-floor in a high load situation I would expect to see a bit of black smoke. Time to "turn up the wick" :D

    Yes I´ve been thinking about that since I bought my first 6,2 and since then (2000) I´ve seen several of 6,2 engines, not mine, gone bad and all of them were "turned up".
    But the difference now is that this is not my DD anymore so turn it up a little couldn`t hurt :crazy:
    How much would you recommend :dunno: for a trailrig who sees very little street.

    Ideally the pump needs to be timed electronically first. The "hash" marks on the pump and mount are only ball-park marks to get it running. I've adjusted the pump around and a timing gauge will tell me the pump is several degrees off, when my eyes tell me the pump alignment hasn't changed :doah:

    Turning up the fuel delivery is a tricky thing with-out an exhaust pyrometer to keep you out of trouble. That said, a heavy climb like that one should produce "alittle" black smoke without cooking the motor (I hope :o ). -Like an 1/8th or less turn.

    I'm swaping to a stick as soon as I can find a good 32 spline 465!!! I cant wait to have a decent crawl ratio, not to mention decending down hills are alot easier :)

    when I rebuilt my 400 I put in some red eagle clutches and koleen steels a shift kit and stack plate cooler, so the tranny never fails to hook up and turn the wheels.. you may want to put your np208 back in there and save up for a doubler, 2.61 is a little better than 2.0
