Should be good for plowing snow as well.


I don’t know Bob, looks awfully low to me.

Good to see you’re watching Lance, the front end I beam is still well below the front guard……it’s an optical illusion. I’ll post some pictures with a tape measure tomorrow. Also, the air is out of the front suspension now so it’ll rise about 3 more inches when full. Regards, Bob

OK, so here are the measurements…..I even measured the 325LE to put my mind at ease. The axle (front) on the 370LE is the lowest point. To my knowledge I have never hit anything with that. The front suspension air bags raise the tranny cooler/guard up 3 more inches when the engine is running. It is also removable in the event of towing…..Regards, BobClick image for larger version

Time flys I'm looking for the original rubber mounts as well. Any advice where?

I did a little research on the fuel injection for the Ford 460 cu in engine a couple of years ago. I didn’t see anything that was advantageous by going this route. My advise to you is to just keep the Holley on, depending on how many miles you plan on driving the 370LE each camping season the return on your investment will never be seen by going with fuel injection or whatever. You might consider installing 4 speed overdrive transmission like I did. We went from 8-9 miles per gallon to 12 or so. Regards, Bob

We had a really great weekend at Roger’s Rock ( North end of Lake George, N.Y.) The only thing missing was the 370LE. The 34’ Classic S/O is nice but I prefer the 370LE. The carburetor should be finished this week and I’ll be able to install it on Sunday. Even though the gathering in Arkansas was cancelled we decided to take the week off and try some other places. I didn’t cancel our reservations for Columbus Day weekend because I wasn’t sure if the gathering was going to happen so we will be there Saturday through Monday with some friends, Monday we leave Cooperstown for North/South Lake campground in Hunter, NY. Not sure how long we’ll stay, but we reserved a site that we saw the last time we were there. Regards, Bob
