Posted by 1949 88 puller on July 10, 2013 at 12:11:33 from (188.8.131.52):
Hi, new here. I have been pulling a stock 88 in the 5500 lb. for a few years now. A couple years back we got a 1949 rowcrop 88 that had been sitting for a couple of years and I pulled it out of the woods and pulled the motor. Decided to get it running. The plan is to shoot for the 4000 lb. class w/ driver. So anyway I opened up the motor and relized this had just been rebuilt 10-15 years or so back. They put in a 3 3/4 pistion kit in and it looks great. The plan was to put in a 3 7/8 kit in but that is now changed. So I"m looking for more horse power and here is what I have planned. 3 3/4 pistions, shaved head, valves gone through, 1650 carb intake and exhaust manifold, and a k&n throught the hood. I"m bringing the head to a motor shop to have the vales gone through and the head shaved. I already asked about port and polishing it and they wont do it. How much do I get shaved? Thats all the questions I have about the motor. I can"t do a stroker crank cause I do have a budget but any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks
