I,m loving the reminiscing,. i had a 3408 in a 79 pete, rack was twisted in it,.had a 15 over with a 4 speed brownie,.
("60 speed" i used to tell the yankees,.) but it had stiff competion with the big kta's,.. a company called porter had some brokers with k100's that used to run 'em hauling 'a' boxes here in canada,.
i,m a little confused tho,. i,d like to know the math on the gearing and rpm to run 130 mph,..
even 100mph is pretty good,. i had another pete a few years later with a b model and it had an 8 speed with 3:90's and big rubber,..
the k100 i had had a 12v71,. it had n80's in it and had a bhasterdized 13 double over, and was fast and mean sounding with an empty flatdeck
Funny how trucks get stronger and faster as the drivers get older,..
