New member, 63 Econoline

Post by twinlinemoto on Fri Jan 04, 2013 2:08 pm

First post here, glad I found this forum!
I have a nice 63 econoline pickup that I bought when I was 18 as my first (and still only) 4 wheeled vehicle. It has served me well over the years and I am excited to start giving it more love than beatings in the future.
Here she is:

It has a 170 bored 0.040" over with a Clifford performance cam, Pertronix ignition, Clifford 6-1 header into a 2.5" flowmaster 40 with dual side pipes exiting in front of the rear wheels.

I hope to one day build a 200 with the offenhauser triple carb manifold with 3 holley 1904's, a better ignition, ratio rockers, maybe even a turbo! We will see...

Welcome to VV, very nice truck. How does she run w the clifford stuff? Also to all who put exhaust tips in front rear wheels WHY? Doesn't it dirty the wheels quickly? Just asking Question

Thank you all! I have had it for 7 years now. She runs pretty good with the clifford stuff, needs way more air and fuel though as my autolite cant keep up! Ive been working with Twinline motorcycles off rainier for 6 years now building custom vintage bikes, usually cafe racers and restoration projects.

Oh and for the side pipes comment, my wheels are no dirtier than before. If anything I have to clean the road crap off the pipes so they look nicer!
