This is the biggest deal to ever go down on this channel! RUvid Superheroes Cleetus McFarland Cooper made the haul from Florida to Georgia to race his Ford Galaxie against the OG Roadkill Ramp Truck. Both have turbocharged Cummins 6BT 5.9L Diesel engines. Both have speed parts from Powerdriven Diesel and they both roll coal.
The Galaxy has the edge in the weight department because the Ramp Truck is a 9,500 lb Chevy R30 Crew Cab with a ramp bed on the back. But the Ramp Truck has twin turbskies, larger fuel delivery valves, better valve springs and a few other tricks that may even the playing field. Who will win this battle Royale of homebuilt hot rods?
Meanwhile, Mike Cotten and David Newbern have been thrashing to get Newbern's Attempted Murder Nova back together with it's new 550ci Big-Block Chevy. In Episode 73 we nearly got it running before a messed up flywheel stopped the starter motor from cranking the big block. This time the engine is rumbling thanks to a new billet flywheel and twin-disc racing clutch from Mantic and Newbern finally gets a chance to run the car down the dragstrip.

I've driven through Atlanta twice and that was plenty for me. I'm not sure how they get that much traffic having that many lanes

Cleetus's diesel looks like it has a skip. When he was going back by Finnegan, you could see it like peak and then drop off, peak and then drop off. Maybe that's just a diesel. I don't know.

You never appreciate how tall Cleetus is until he's standing next to a Lilliputian like Finnegan ( sorry mate! ). The race was epic, I love the OG Roadkill ramp truck and that Galaxy. I wish I had an opportunity to relearn and work on cars like this ( diesel or gas ).

I've been following Finnegan since roadkill and Cleetus since Ruby the junk auction Corvette. They stand as my two favorite RUvidrs so far. A definite inspiration to chalk up my design for what I hope to one day call "Ol' Decker". Either a hemi or LS powered Buick Park Avenue. One day to hopefully race at least one of them.

Smear some grease or anti seize on your gaskets and they'll stay in place when you're putting things together

Screw a long bolt in that open hole in the front of the block and the pushrod will stay up whilst puting in the pump.

Propane is the other nitrous for Diesel engines, not sure how it compares to nitrous performance wise, but makes them run real good.

I cant help but think ... if you guys are willing to use a carb like that what other cheap internet special parts are on that thing? now that I look closer the entire engine looks like a stock 2 bolt internet special. Not Good Ya'll. But, Im only 3 minutes into the clip. I could be talking out my ass but looks to me like ol' Cleetus is gonna smoke that cheap ass p.o.s.

Bet the Ramp Truck could still run a hi 15 with the Nova still strapped down on the back.

These problems seem to occur because these automotive technology companies produce high quality parts, but they don't interface well in real applications. You have to check EVERYTHING physically for compatibility before and after the install, and then find all the things you still missed BEFORE they destroy your build.
otm646 Year ago
In the Dart technical documentation It's specifically states you need a fuel pump pushrod that's 0.200" longer. He did not read the damn manual, it's that easy.
