Welcome to the forums. I pull diesels and don't really mess with the alcohol toys. Chris is an active member on here as he's rebuilding his. Id let Lakota racing or Nichols performance do the work for you I know these things can be a pain sometimes

Ok First thing you want to do is go on the nqs web sit and get engine rules. you can only do so much. SA cam stock stroke crank and bore max is .030 get a good rod and piston. and flywheel. I think valve size is 1.375.

This is just my opinion but if this is your first time pulling I would try and keep with the stock stuff first to get a feeling for it then move from there so you have a little bit of experience

I'm starting in a bone stock class with a 4000 rpm limit. But I built my cub to be able to take the punishment of a alcohol 16. I know me that once I get my feet wet I'll be moving up in class. The good thing for me is all machine work only cost me my time. Got access to all tbe equipment where I work.

Don't spend a lot of money. The points will work very good for what your doing.

S/A isn't a bad class to look into but it is rather expensive to me at least. Chris is a good guy and knows what he's doing with the alcohols and they look good as well :thumbs:
