...and this is why I have a cheap paint job.

If there's one thing I learned about four wheeling it's to spin those tires through the loose sloppy spots. So on the way out I keep the revs high to slide though the mud. Tons of fun-for real.

These '44s are such a great package. Balanced. Well geared. Nimble. Love them.

Awesome, thanks for the pictures, looks fun. How did you delete the balance shafts? The lindsey kit? You running solid motor and trans mounts as well?

This would be perfect for your car: http://www.aasesales.com/products/h4e-m58-14g-101514

I've had mine for awhile, it holds up really well.

Sorry, more accurately, I removed the balance shaft belt & rollers to see if I liked it without. I do. (note: reinforcing the oil pan pick up tube is recommended. so I did that also).

In the future I'd like to completely remove the shafts to save weight/make more simple.

How did you reinforce the pick up? I used the Ishihar-Johnson bracket when I went with solid motor mounts. I was going to delete the balance shafts, but I got talked out of it. http://www.lindseyracing.com/LR/Part...NCEDELETE.html

Ok well yours is prettier! Mine is home-made. I re-brazed all the seams excessively & made a full length panel with a bead for rigidity.

I don't have very accurate measuring tools at home right now but from what I can tell, the overall length of the lobs from the edge of base circle to tip distance is very similar of the Milledge 3/4 race to full race. Except the base circle of the full race is smaller. Here's my caliper on the 3/4 race cam. The gap shown represents the extra size of the stock cam (and 3/4 race cam).

Inspired by A.M.H. I thought I'd try lifting the intake with the fuel rail still attached. Required some mechanical kung fu, but we are getting it done.

Finally cleaned Wilson.



I like doing one mod at a time, but sometimes thats stupid.

Its been 3 days with the race cam in. I broke all the rules. I installed the bumpstick without taking the head off & measuring clearances. Head was (rebuilt to factory specs) installed like 7000 miles ago & I don't have the cash to get bigger valves & port & polish yada yada. Also the head has NA valves. Not recommended.

Anyway, with 3 days under my belt & last nights "TEST DRIVE", I am confident that this current format will be fine for say 6 months until I'm inclined to get some head work done. For the time being I can't say this cam feels more powerful than the 3/4 race. In fact perhaps the opposite. The other cam introduced its powerband earlier and I haven't done the mods that were recommended to make this one go. But I did carryover the 4 degree cam advance key to help lower the powerband.

MY big concern: blowing the engine. Didn't happen. Drove it pretty hard last night, 4500-5200 rpm for 2 hours. Touching 6000 rpm here and there. No Porsches were killed during this exercise.

Found out why the rhs door felt really stiff to close.

Screw it, don't need these heavy items anyway. Door is way smoother now!
