4-53T source?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where to get a 4-53T? Jamie has a 6-71 but that is a little too big for most light duty trucks. 

Thanks!

If you find one let me know!

I have cut down the 6-71 and made a 4-71 before. If you go that route GW Trucks makes a very nice 6-71 as well. You could also make a 3-71. It would have more cubic inches than a 4-53.

This one was made by cutting down the 6-71 from Spaulding. It's not quite as nice as Jamie's or Gary's 6-71.

Thanks for the info. I could make a 3-71! Maybe someone will fill the void and cast a 4-53 for us.

I'm not as far along as Brian but I made one too. Once you get the block done you can use a lot of parts from a kit 8v-71 to finish it.
