Thats why there called crash boxes haha. Love he vid and would love an update one day!
1 st gear is dead low, you use 2nd to take off with. Dead low for use on the farm/work. If you drove a 1940 s Ford or Chevy, they would have been similar. Take it off road, it will go anywhere
This twat needs to burn in Toyata Hell. What a douche!
It seems my computer screen is made of rubber.
Your RPM is too high in each gear, them Pistons are swapin holes! Start out in second gear. Once you learn to feel the engine then you will learn to down shift properly.
how about the slant six power wagon
This is amazing. I would love one of these. Congratulations from here of Colombia.
That is the single most accurate fire truck sound I have ever heard. You sir have true talent.
Thanks all. You re right. 1st gear is not synchro! Now that I start off in 2nd and keep the RPMS down no more gear grinding or over revs! I also changed the carb, adjusted the linkages for more pedal run-out, and remembered how to drive the old gear boxes. I will post another ride soon.
Dude, pull into the slow lane unless you re going to turn left.
they only made like 200 ibft. They get away with having low gears.
I was under the impression that the old Power Wagon relied almost entirely on torque for pulling power.
only 1st wasnt syncro d all the rest were.
and they dont make a lot of torque. They rely on gears to get anything done
Thanks for posting Dave. On the bye and bye.she ll shift easier with lower RPM s and double clutch each shift!
That flathead six won t last long if he keeps running the RPM s so high. Start out in 2nd gear and let the torque do the work. Flatheads don t rely on horsepower, they rely on torque.
That old boy needs to learn how to double clutch! There are no synchros in a Powerwagon.
Is it just an illusion from the camera or does the cab and windshield frame actually bend and twist as much as it seems to be doing in the video?
