RE: LeRoar's trip



There are cell phone apps for MPH – to check your speedo/odometer.......  Used that to determine what tranny gear count worked best to correct the speedo.........

Rich, hope your road trip continues  with much enjoyment...no issues. You sure your miles are correct?  That mpg doesn't sound right.   Brutus is getting better mpg than that, and I have 3:55 rear gears --28" diameter rear tires. And a few mpg abuses  with spirited accelerations!  Have fun...............................MO

Yep you're right and I've been good on the throttle. The car originally had a 2:76 but that's not in the equation now.

Have 2:76 gears in the wagon – never have checked MPG – Life’s too short for that – but a 4bbl is a 2bbl until you put a heavy foot into it..............  ; )

Hi Rich,

 

Crazy idea.  Run a two barrel converter plate on your intake and get yourself a Holley two barrel.  Maybe just for the long trips.  My guess is with a nice air cleaner no one would even notice when popping into car shows.

 

By rules we have to run an adapter plate / two barrel on the circle track car and our motors run strong.  Just sayin'

After all these years I finally got LeRoar ready for the road. My wife and I traveled up to our old town of Harrison, NE way up in the NW corner of NE.  It was Sioux County fair time and they had a parade on Saturday. We entered LeRoar in the parade and had a nice time. We drove a total of 1130 miles and averaged 11.3mpg with a per mile gas cost of 22 cents.  It did run well but obviously I should be able to get better mpg since it has been tamed down. I have 3:23 gears, 2000 stall, SS-X manifold, 264 cam and a 600 Eddy which is leaned down to about position 5 on the chart. I'm considering trying a 500 Eddy. I do have a stock converter which only has about 500 miles on it and I could swap it in.  But that sounds like work!  Anybody have any input on that idea?

 

In October my wife and I will drive LeRoar down to Houston for a Halloween Car Show. That will be about a 2000 mile trip. It's good to start driving it more.  I'd be glad to share some pictures but windows 10 and I don't get along well. Maybe computers and I don't get along well !
