    The driver of that fueler must have passed out. No chutes were deployed. The big fire ball was scary!

    then why the lifters issue// they pump up and make -lash
    Valve springs for a solid roller. Spring pressures were like 320 on the seat and 645 open. About twice the recommended for those lifters.
    Ya, that's a tad over spec for that RPM - by maybe, oh, 200%.... :o
    That's the problem with Vic Jr heads. No part #'s on them at all to differeniate between the solid and hydraulic valve springs. Physically, they are same, dual springs with dampner, 1.55 diameter. Even if you get them with the box; how do you know for sure if it's the right one without removing a spring and testing it?

    On top of this, I did a chassis dyno day and it ran 18 times to redline. It was months later that I discovered the springs were wrong. I'm looking to get Comp's new short travel lifters.

    Scott, you and me had the exact same verbal reaction. I had the throttle stick on my '99 Blazer while coming back to Fort Hood from Colorado. As soon as I realized what was happening I steered the truck into a bean field and killed the engine. Scared the shit out of me.

    I watched all of those except that last one. It's still gives me the willys. And, it's probably why I think my lifters are collapsed. That 6000+ rev was with solid roller springs on my hydro lifters.
