    How did it work out with the Kelford cams Scott? Which valves did you end up using? Were you happy with the results! Very nice.
  • E
    Oh wow nice, didn't know you already explored this route. Did you ever test it out? We ended up going with Manley valves as Ferrea was more than I wanted to spend for a refresh. I will have to check in with my head builder on how he tackled...

    Yeah I bought those same cam buckets years ago, the only issue I can identify is that if you grind the inner pad to get the correct clearance you are removing the hardened layer of material and it will wear quickly. You can see if you can order...

    The RD rads are definitely worth the money. All my builds get them now. I also always use the internal and external cooler as designed. The internal cooler is actually a heater. It warms the trans fluid. The external cooler cools it down. Between...

    This might be of some interest to you guys. I don't think this has been done yet, or at least documented here on mud. Like I had mentioned initially, My goal was to free up the breathing a bit via cams, light headwork, and valves. Right at the...

    Ha! I had high hopes with for MLX. A bunch of back and forth with Cometic, multiple 100mi trips, detailed photos requested. I'll be honest, it was kind of a drag. They really did their best in trying to not warranty the HG. At one point they...

    Tell me about it. What was more disheartening was to have to wait another 5 weeks for the MLS HG. Didn't want to chance that the replacement MLX was built on the same JIG or template... Glad your enjoying the updates. I was wondering if...

    Circling back to this HG journey. Didn't post for a while since I was dealing with a Cometic HG mfg defect. After waiting over a month on the Cometic MLX HG, I noticed when I dropped it onto the deck, the HG did not go on without a fight. The...

    Thanks Zonker. I saw your awesome thread on your findings. Pulled the trigger on a RD, as well as just a koyo to get my rig out of the shop. Lead time with RD is now 6 weeks. The shop didn't feel comfortable JB welding the pinhole as a...

    Installed a Ron Davis with the trans cooler. I don’t know why you would want to delete the cooler. Just my opinion. After 5k miles and towing our small off-road trailer.. I could not ask for a more efficient radiator. Most people won’t know...

    I can see all that when it gets translated to the price tag 😅.

    I would hope so too but continually read about issues with cooling from folks using other radiators. To each his or her own, just relating my personal experience.

    Did you opt for the trans cooler in the radiator or the version without? If I can remember correctly Joey and Scott here on mud mentioned they would have gone without the trans cooler (built inside) option. Good to know on your experience with...

    I use Ron Davis radiators on all my swaps, have two currently on order. I've had no issues to date with Ron Davis radiators. I build trucks for owners that are spread out all over the United States. I can not afford to go to any of these...

    A1918 is in my current 80. RD is not worth the price IMO and mine was 1/2 of today's prices Dont own the 80 with the RD but it still in the truck.

    Thanks Phil. If you had to do it all over again, which one would you do? Is your RD still going strong?

    Owned all 3..... my 80 had the first RD back in 2003 Living in Arizona I run along with many others a 1918. My normal running temp 186.6 rarely seeing 200°. I do run and use an LCP aux fan also.

    After a couple of days of scrubbing through radiator threads I thought I'd ask since I haven't found any threads on RD trans cooler deletes. About 5yrs ago, I opted to replace my original radiator on my 97 at 116k. Having not doing my usual...

    I just did the same, but only replaced the injector housing clips, all 6 of them. If I were to do it all over, I'd replace the whole harness, but my vehicle is relatively low mileage. I'd get a new harness, Heat shield wrap the important parts...

    You could also go full custom on your existing instrument cluster and put whatever you want in that space like i did. Custom Gauge Cluster IMO it's the cleanest yet most costly option. Mine are speedhut gauges that monitor the following...

    I got the R&P gears cryo'd by these guys. It was about $100 for both sets at the time. No noticeable difference, no issues. The front gears were set by Zuk. The rear was done by a local shop. http://www.performancecryogenics.com/
