Re: L100 Camshaft using 59ab valves

For whatever it is worth here is my experience with an L100 in my 276 with 3- 97's. I like the acceleration thru the gears, but if the RPM's go below 2000 the engine will buck. I don't go over 4000...

Re: '40 and '41 Pickup

That is true.....my 41 was originally a 6 and the radiator mount was further ahead than a 8 to accommodate the longer engine.

Re: Lawsons 97's ( LC ) + vintage kits

If I attempt a swap copper will be a chore, but steal would be much more difficult to fish it around and make the bends. Why not copper it was OEM.?

Re: Alternator or not?

I converted to 12V and used a later model generator. It puts out enough to run bright lights at night or run the fan during the day. :)
