A Blown Ramp Truck Road Trip to Get a 350 SBC-Swapped Mini Truck! Finnegan's Garage Ep.115 

Ganger 907 k
98% 8 909 160

This marks the final installment of our 1969 Chevy C50 ramp truck project. If you recall, this is the truck that we traded Big Red and a wad of cash for. We've put a lot of work into this ride including a complete wiring job, new front suspension, new brakes, a restored engine compartment and most importantly, a new Weiand 6-71 supercharger and dual Holley Double Pumper carbs. Now, we make her even more street friendly with the addition of a fresh 14-bolt rear axle from the dudes at Quick Performance. This axle has all he goodies for freeway flying and maximum wheelspeed burnouts; it's stuffed with a Yukon Grizzly locker, 35 spline axles, new seals and bearings throughout, and a 3.55:1 ring and pinion gearset.
We swapped axles right before making an 800 mile trip to Florida to pick up a pile of parts and a Toyota Mini-Truck from our friend Steve Shaw. This truck will become Newbern's next project, which I'm sure you'll see on this channel at some point. Thanks for watching. If you'd like some Finnegan Speed AND MARINE MERCH, go here:

hey mike, when your woman asks if 2 quarts over is bad, and your response is "depends on how bad the valve cover gaskets are" is that too roadkill?

Ive welded a lot of axles and tongues on mobile homes , and a block or even two helps keep the tires from blowing out from rubbing the out riggers .......then you have a blowout on the road you got about thousand in-patient road ragers to deal with.....

I just found a cab and chassis of one of these it’s has a big chrome badge on the front saying she’s powered by a 427 . It has a very low stance and very large wheel well mouldings that look a little strange to me . I can’t say that I’ve seen another in 30 years when I use to play in the old scrap yards . Most of that cool tin got crushed in the early 2000,s when scrap rose upon value .

Hey bro love the channel! You should get what i use now ON EVERY vehicle with electric fans the DERALE PWM (pulse modulated) fan controller, 80 amp breaker interall auto resetting, SOLID STATE circuitry NO mechanical relays or reostats, Stick/glue on temp sensor OR get the better factoty style screw in temp sensor from them, Full hidden wiring that has a bolt on aluminum cover that hides all the stud post style terminal connections, it also has a air conditioning 12volt input so when the A/c is on it goes to a minmum 60% BUT without a/c input wire showing + battery volts the controller will start at 1% fan speed and increase only until the tempature stops rising past the degree you set it to then it ramps down as the temp goes below set tempature until its a few (5 or 10 i think) degrees lower than set temp and it goes down quickly to zero. Theres never a alternator LOAD when the fans start because instead of full amps or low then high amps IT always starts at 0 then 1% then 2% as needed making the current draw very low and the less cooling needed like while moving it will use almost no amps or turn off the fans. Best thing ever for a street vehicle .
