whats your setup look like? i've got 3 pumps 10 batts and at first i couldnt get it to stand 3, but then i just keep tapping the switch and it popped up. Make sure your frame is notched for your uppers trailing arms too. Mine wasnt and my uppers got a little mangled. That had something too do with it too i bet.

my other 2 pumps arent in the car in this picture, but they sit right beside the front pump.

here's mine except there's another pump in it now
i can like hit a rear corner up, and then get out and pull the front bumper up into a three but it wont stay up :angry:

the frame is notched for the uppers, i was thinking maybe if i got those pro hopper adjustables it might make a difference :dunno:

Try locking the whole car up dump the passanger side, after the whole side is down dump the rear passanger corner to make sure it's all the way down, hit the rear driver side pump up to make sure the cylinder is fully entended, then hit up the front pump till it gets off the ground. This is the way I did it on my '80 monte with 8 batteries along the back of the trunk, 12" cylinders, no chains, 2 pumps to the rear and single to the front. I would even take the little kids from the neighborhood for rides on the front rim, turning the opposite way and it still wouldn't fall.

well of course 3 pumps will do it. 2 to the rear and one to the front. :cheesy: :cheesy:




this guy might have a hard time trying to figure a way how to do it wil 2 pumps and 6-8 batteries.

He has 3 pumps already. HiLow is correct but some of you did not read the original question. He said he put 2 pumps to the back. Anyway.......
Do you have a rear sway bar? If you do, that may be causing you to not stand. The way we do it here is by hitting up the front and then doing 1 rear corner till it tips. You must have at least 12 inch cylinders in the rear. Some wore out bushings also help. Keep trying it. It will eventually sit. :biggrin:

my rear sway bars off, i tried doing it the exact way you described, and what happens is the car feels like it wants to stand but its like there just isnt enough weight to make it tip, cuz i can get out and pull up the front corner, and it'll go up, but when i let go of it, it just comes right back down. i got 14's but they dont get full extension due to the trailing arms and brakeline :( i guess i'll just keep trying

the frame is re-enforced, not fully wrapped, but the sides are done from front to to back, my trunk and hood still open when im trying to three.
i guess wrappin it might make a difference.
