    Mace, if you are still out there and reading this, I have some info for you. If you are going to use the factory fuel gauge it only uses 5 volts to power it. And I think it comes from the factory volt regulator. If you switch to the GM 1 wire alt you lose that 5 volts. 12 volts will fry the...

    Hey i'm new to the world of wheeling, so i need some advice on a cheap buildup

    Since you have it rotating you might as well use it. The 390 gets about the same mpg. I own both. If you want a 4 speed still, might look at a mid 80's 1 or 3/4 ton, the four speeds have synchronized 1st gear. I have np435 in my Scout and wish I have a synchro sometimes. Oh, the 460 market of...

    I've read of people doing these swaps all the time at off road shops into jeeps and custom buggies. Shouldn't be hard to find info on it. Most of the swaps are with the LS v8 but GM is GM. They are pretty much the same.

    I would stick with keeping things simple with the tranny. To me dirt and computers don't mix. Easier to fix on the side of the trail. And don't discredit the Ford carb. Its one of the best off road carbs ever made. It is also in my budget. CHEAP. I'll upgrade as time and money permits. For now...

    Hey there is a new injection kit from FAST called EZ-EFI. It is self tuning and bolts on to any 4150 bolt pattern 4 barrel intake. It is a little pricey but is about the easiest conversion I have ever seen. No laptop or programming.

    Roswell Shooting

    You may or may not have heard that there was a shooting in a middle school in Roswell NM today. I live in Roswell, last thing I ever thought would happen here. Please keep the families affected in your thoughts and prayers.

    Good call. I just swapped a fairly new truck avenger volley for a 1969 ford 2 barrel. Runs like a champ now.

    Switching to Military Tires

    For inexpensive tires try Treadwright. They retread 37" hummer tires with the old MTR pattern. They call the Guard Dog, I think. I'm running the old tread pattern on my Scout. When I got them I had them mounted on some aluminum wheels and balanced out very easily. The tire guys were very impressed.

    My scout is sitting on a jeep frame. Mine is a body swap so not real sure how it work. But I bet a cj-5 or 7 tank could fit.

    Hey Chevy stuff is a good way to go. Don't count out the 305. Find them all over. More than a 4.3 less than a 350 just as good or better on gas. Spare tank must be a African thing. My 62 had a tank on both sides. 72 Chevy blazer tank under the back end now.
