It is a blast to ride around in and folks really like the harvester power, even the ones that are other brand loyalist. I had a leak at my sight gauge (on the side of the oil pan so I dropped the pan and resealed the sight gauge. Thought I would show off some of Tom mandera's fine engine work and why this is a blast to drive.

Check out all the weight he dropped from the rods and still was able to get it balanced. It spools to 6k at the blip of the throttle

I will have to ask Tom but looks like he dropped a few pounds from the rotating mass on the 304/392 power plant. With the exhaust side pipes it just sounds mean and with the lighter weight you can bet it plants you in the back of the seat when you cobb the go peddle. I will also add the four wheel disc work very good, you do get a little noise when you really push hard on the brakes but you feel good and it stops straight.

Here another shot of the bottom end.

The headers have a flow thru muffler built in, still a touch loud but the 304/392 sounds sweet.
