I have a 78 Caprice with a 2 pump setup.
14" cylinders in rear with coilovers.
I have no cut-off valves, is that a must for 3 wheeling?
Or am i just missing a lot of weight in the rear to be able to do a rolling 3 wheel?

I know a chain-bridge and cut-offs would be the way to go, but that has to be later.

2 pump 3 dump setup should be cool .... i dont see why you cant do a rolling 3 ... are you doing it correct..

I have 2 pumps and 4 dumps.
I raise the whole car and lower the right front and left rear wheels while rolling.
I have tried with a guy in the trunk :) (Not a dead one)
But it's still like it has the same weight in the front as in the rear.
Looks like it should have 4-500 pounds in the trunk to do it...

yeah dont worry about dumpin the front corner yet. all that does it take pressure off the coil, thats it.

one way with 2 pump 4 dump setup is to raise it up, dump one side, the hit the back again and it will fill up the lifted side the rest of the way, then make sure the dumped side is still dumped all the way, then gas it and pump the front at the same time.

I have 4 batteries only.
2 batteries in each side of the trunk.
But a guy of 150 pounds should do it out for the weight of 4 more batteries.
But hey...With the guy in the back, i only rolled 3 meters.
Maybe i should let it roll much longer...

I had an astro van ones which i could 3 wheel only when the cylinders was mounted outside the frames. It seems like the same problem here.
But i will try to let it roll much longer.

I was gonna say the same thing...............hmmmm.....it's gonna take more than 4. You should be able to do it regardless, but, it won't be a nice long rollin' 3.

is it 2 or 4 dr?
I was close to get my hands on a 2 door, but i didn't get it.
That would have been cool.
So now it's a 4-door.
There are not many of them in Denmark where i am from.
