Also even only down to around 11s you dont think drag radials would be a good fit? it would be nice to drive/race on the same tires..

With a manual, drag radials are only slightly better than regular radials.

Given the small sizes that you could use and the fact that you don't have a slipper clutch, I doubt that you would see much gain.

Even with most drag radials, I wouldn't recommend using them as your daily driver tires. The good ones still have horrible wet traction and wear quickly.

I was doing some reading on the HP main body swap.

Apparently it's calibration is for carbs with four corner idle circuits. Many are finding that the idle bleed jets on the secondaries need to be changed when used with a two corner idle circuit.

I noticed the tuning trouble that you are having and thought it might be worth looking into.

Hmm interesting. I seemed to have more issue on the primary side. At the moment and at the dragstrip I have jetting square at 80 all around. This seems a little too rich on the primary side but safe. I went to 7000 rpm I believe and did not notice issue with it revving though I believe it could be quicker with taking a jet or two out of it.
Do you happen to have a link on what you were reading?
Thank you

No, but I seen it several different times. I was just reading on my phone when I seen it, and then noticed it several more times.

After doing some reading, apparently Proform main bodies come with a extra set of secondary idle bleeds for carbs with two circuit idle.

I have read that some come with 31s and others come with 36s. I have also read that 28s seem to be very close when used on 650 conversions. Oddly enough, original 2 circuit 750 DPs also used a 28 secondary IAB.

Good job.  Some tire & something to help it hook will make a huge difference.  until then just work on what it likes.  You may never get all in in first.  Just float it down easy.  Then start figuring out where the spin lives.  Might take a few rounds.  You may need a little street time to figure out what it does too.  The corn is coming down in Porter County.  You can check for cops from a mile away.  I used be pretty partial to 130 near Hobart.

New Year Update:
Will be buying a set of slapper bars (They work and I like the old school look)
I am looking at buying THIS>>>>>> http://www.jegs.com/i/Proform/778/67007C/10002/-1

My tach does not have a shift light and does not have the connection for one. I believe this is the route to go until I can afford a better tach. No, I do not like the monster 5" tach as I prefer something that I might could blend into my car. The reason for liking the small pen shift lights is because I have a hole in my dash for the original choke cable and I intend to put the shift light behind the dash in that location.

Also this winter I aim to install my subframe connectors. Another item to fix is spacing my electric fan off the radiator a small amount and building a shroud for it.

Does anyone have another option or opinion?

I'd try to mount it so that it can be removed. Adjusting something that is permanently mounted behind the dash could be troublesome.

Oh, and I hate monster tachs too.

I agree with you and intend to make it removable behind the dash. Most likely I would reach it from underneath the dash or from taking out my gauge cluster be able to access it.


Does anyone have a single 7500 rpm module for a 6AL box? Might be good to have a limiter in place.

Yea, but I've got both of mine in line with each other. So, that's like 3.5"+3.5". Right?  Wonder, Ponder

So inspected my oil filter from the last oil change which is from the when I went to the drag strip last year. I am seeing a decent mount of metal flakes in between each fold and I am down on oil pressure.
I have a theory as to what happened. I believe it stems from no baffles in the stock front sump pan and the 10 passes and other little driving I did. I will see about posting a picture tomorrow.

As for the fate of the falcon I am thinking of finding a stock block and throw my top end with either a stock or different cam in for quick and easy. Or one of two longer term goals is either a 363 setup or a coyote engine.

I have no time for the falcon as I have another project I need to finish. I will start another build thread when I pick up the block and head from the machinist.

Maybe a affordable solution for the future, Boss 302 pan copy:

They sell the baffle and pickup separately but its only ~$30 cheaper than the complete kit.
