Would any one have a KR wilson or similar tool that you use to get the driveshaft bearing sleave out.
I need the outside diameter of it so I can make one.

You are right about the blower,our old hilborn injected engine in the dragster only went about 115 mph, built the new engine with a 471blower and best so far is 142 mph.

Re: stuck rear hub help

I have the KR wilson puller, It wont break free.

Re: Winton trip in the 33

If I was 10 yrs younger I would do a motor home conversion on one of those,

Maybe a smaller bus would be good.
