I am A/C all the way, but have to say- without change/evolution we would still be running wood props, no wire on cages and no bottom treatments.

Re: New 220 gpu owner

Contact Schmidt aviation they make a nice oil separator. It will still lose some, but cut it down drastically. They are oly around $100. When you get 2-3k saved up contact The Stanley's and have them put an A/C intake, carb and 470 or 520 cylinders.

Re: Gladesmen and Panthers - Do They Mix Well??

There is way too many down there. They wipe out too much game. They kill something to eat. Eat enough to make themselves full and leave the rest to rott. Then do it again in a couple days or less.

Why would you want to remove this motor from the truck? They only made approximately 17,000 of these trucks and they are going up in value every day.

Re: How old do I have to be

Gerald I totally agree. It is the hottest I can recall. I would venture to GUESS that the humidity has been higher on average than normal. It surely has been wetter than it has on average in close to 20 years. Maybe Rob can chime in. He certainly seems to have accurate rain/temp info.

Hey Riverrat. Sorry I did not get back to you. I often lose these posts once they are off the front page. I would entertain selling it depending on price of course. I would think it would be imperative to change the pistons to at least a lil higher compression ratio if you remove the turbo. Blackhog...
