    My Cummins 6BT Story

    Well if that's the case, I owe you one! Have not ran into them yet, but I know a certain someone local to me that would be up for a low stall 343 TC as well!

    I have not, although I'd bet dollars to dog biscuits they won't touch the toyota TC. I'll send them an email though! Thanks!

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    On the 45psi, I was pretty arrogant with boost for a while. I'd let it run 45psi to get up to highway speed and then let things cool back down. As you imply, that was never a place to just sit there and leave it for too long. I tend to cruise at 10-12 and then probably average 20psi to...

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    Have quite a few miles on the setup now... On a cool day, the TC Lock can't hold until the trans temps are up a bit. The shifts are always consistent. Trans is pretty fresh on the rebuild. As long as I allow the trans to warm up before feeding it the beans, I haven't really worried about it and...

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    Oh for sure. a stock 6BT won't run anything like that... Nothing fancy though. Just the standard springs and screw adjustments to push the fueling up higher. It's just a plain 'ol VE pumped motor with a 2nd gen dodge wastegated turbo and about $90 worth of springs and pin on the pump... 3"...

    Put the LX on the dyno today... 215whp and 450wtq... assuming a 25% driveline loss with the big tires, etc, etc.... something like 280hp and 600tq as a factory would advertise (BHP)....

    Builds 4bt cummins 96 FZJ

    ya'll sure there isn't a modular way to pull the dash out of it? Pretty much every assembly line vehicle since the 70s has a modular dash. Now the trick to most of these cars is know how the assembly line installed the dash assembly. A friend here at the shop found on a car he was working on...

    Parasitic Battery Drain and Dome Light Fuse

    My glorious cruiser has the battery drain issue... My door fuse seems to be responsible for the majority of the drain at 100+ma... Did some searching, but missing the easy button post where it lists what's all on the door fuse circuit, albeit plenty of door fuse threads. Anyone have such a...

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    There is none. Doubt there ever will be or a customer that would be willing to pay for it. Best bet is to build yourself or buy from someone that did it right and is just ready to move on. As car builder myself the dollars required to build one correctly and make it economically viable for the...

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    Finally got around to rewiring the battery cables and terminals. I hated that there were 17 things stacked on the positive terminal from dusier. No more. Used 1/0 fine strand high flex cable. It’s welding cable. Overkill for such a short run. The winch cables are coming off the terminal bolts...

    I think I need a lot more cooling... Looking at the Ron Davis and delete the trans cooler/warmer from it for some more area and fewer calories to the cooling system... These turned up 6BTs create some fantastic heat with a trailer...

    My Cummins 6BT Story

    UPDATE: Radflow shocks and Steering... and Cooling... @cjmoon and I made some super tough connecting links that utilize 1 ton GM tie rod ends. We were careful space the link slightly higher than OE to where it would not hit the control arms or the front pinion. A bit of dance there, but we now...

    Small update.... Went back to the TJM stiff springs in the rear. Axle to flare is not 24.5"... so what's that, 4" lift or so... Add 130mm urethane spaces from Man-a-free on the front. I probably did something wrong because I actually spent some time on the lathe with them as I couldn't get them...
