Mine is built for fun not for speed so it is a Funster. It has a Muncie but only gets used to load and unload and reverse so I can use the low pedal to go backwards.

You don't have to pull the pan with a neoprene seal to get the timing cover off unless you are going to replace the seal. I have had a number of timing covers off and just clean out the old sealer and put new in the groove when putting it back together.

Re: 21" tires for a driver

If you hate changing tires as much as I do, I would step up and get Firestones. They will last a whole lot longer, also don't forget to check you toe in when you put the new tires on.
