Well yesterday was the local car show. Ed and I met at the local gas station and then caravanned to the show. Little later John with the Studebaker showed up.
Due to high temps....round 105+ the show was not all the successful this year, but it was still great to be with friends.

Well Crustine's 600 eddy is really hating this hot weather. Engine has been running a little above norm, but that's to be expected in 110 degree weather. Right now there's a huge flat spot off idle and the carb is starting to load the engine up and nasal leak like mad. SO, between a jet down kit and a carb rebuild kit I was at half the cost of a 500 cfm 1404 so I bit the bullet and decided to down grade. Been wanting to go smaller as I like the size of the primaries much better on the 500. The new carb should be here on Thursday and I'll finally be installing a pressure regulator. That was part of my problem is to much fuel pump pressure. Should see a bit more gas mileage and less nasal leakage now. Also gonna replace fuel filters and check the lines. Will update on the progress.

New carb and pressure regulator are on, engine runs smoother now. Does need the secondaries jetted down and probably one step down again on the primaries. No flat spots and smooth acceleration now. Will get some pictures and footage soon. Have to put a new fuel psi gauge on there cause the one on there is junk.

Regulator set to 5.5 psi hot....runs good! No more cranking over for 5 minutes when it's 100 degrees out.

Put new front shocks on this truck a couple weeks ago...all I can say is....Man...these were the best bang for the buck yet.

KYB Monomax shocks:

These shocks make it feel like a SBC is up front rather than a 900 pound beast. lol Going over bumps and uneven back roads has been much nicer....doesn't have a dang rocking chair affect for miles after one bump.
