I will argue with you all day long, i did the test years aago. Depending on the gearbox of course. The peerless 700 always has twelve gears that rotate when powered by the input shaft. The gear box only has two. Even if you only race in third gear for example all the other eight gears rotate and cause friction with each other ultimately robbing power. This is the complete opposite of a foote for example the only gears that rotate is the gear that you choose the sychros engage the gears and the others dont rotate if not chosen. Back in the day i used to turn my 700's straight into gearboxes taking all the gears out except one and locking it.  Cool

What I should have said was an 820 is more efficient that a 700 trans. Considering I got my info straight from Peerless years ago, I'll argue all day long, too (820 vs. 700). We don't run all the gears in the cluster either, so the 700 has no advantage in that regard. Plus, we don't have the additional parasitic loss created by a chain, two sprockets, with maybe a tensioner. If you are talking an RAGB, that would be correct, it is more efficient than an 820, or a 700. But I believe the discussion is about shiftable boxes.

I kinda like Javelins. Even this one. Ah, the sound of a built 401.

Just like a truck a buddy of mine had. Built 351 Windsor, which made about as much power as an unbuilt Chevy. Lousy with rust, so when he got on it, the box sides would flap in the wind. Kinda like Ed's plow truck.

You know, there are nights I can't tell the difference between Bud Light, Miller Lite and lighter fluid, but that lab of mine had his act down. Had to put him down a few years ago at age 13. Pretty good for a lab. Still miss him.

He'd have to give me at least 5 Colts if he's getting my dear Pinto.

the gear box will consume less power

Beeeeeeeeeep!!. Wrong, Grasshopper.

I had a Collie once that had some German Shepard parts. He turned out OK.

Outerwear will make a pre-filter for you using dimensions of the filter. I know the number I had was for a custom made piece. Kind of like a job number.

Chuck, while I have no intention of buying any of this stuff, I am curious on the shipping expense. Could you please compute and let Ed know, because he has no intention of buying anything either.

Does it have a super rare clock worth $6,000?

No, no it doesn't. But it does have one back up that light works.

And my green truck originally came with a SOHC 427. I swapped in the 4.2 because they sound better.
