    I saw that and I wasn't sure what to think, when are you picking one up? I'd love to hear your thoughts on it,


    So dad's new dually is apparently a let down, steering has been an issue as it will want to pull side to side; the steering is tight, but it will start to pull then catch going one way, and as soon as you correct it pulls to the other side, anyone know what that could be? We bought it with about 80% of the front end components replaced.

    It's disappointing towing, it's got 4:56 gearing so it's a pig off the line, and it's got a slight miss; he said he was pulling up a hill with our camper and the truck was screaming bogged down to about 20 miles an hour, I asked him if he checked the ignition components but he said they look new, any other 454 owners got any tips?

    I'll have it soon, but my engine is still out in pieces waiting on more parts before i can reinstall, I probably won't have it running for another couple months or so.

    It does look like a deal, doesn't Dave have something similar to that in the Fox?

    Thinking about going with this, would it be compatible with my stock shaft? Or should I just go with Delco ignition components?

    4.56 gears and it's a pig off the line ? What's up with that ?

    That was my thought. I figured that thing would scream from a stop.

    Maybe it's got real tall tires. Like 36" or taller.

    Nope. Stock tires. 225/75r16 or something like that. I think there's got to be a filter or something clogged, or something not plugged in on the ignition system?
