Its @ 9.9 & more than I wanted for a regular fuel driver. Heads have 55cc chambers but they make good torque. Will run premium fuel with the carb & set the mechanical advance for 24 crank degrees. When the Vette TPI goes on it will have knock sensors, running regular fuel if spark knock occurs they will kill timing before the pistons melt.
Yep, new pump with adjusted .003 gear/rotor to housing clearance.
Had to modify a pickup to work with an early 5 qt pan that clears the rear steering. The pickup now sits 3/8" off the bottom.
Push in pickup tube is welded to the pump + I made a weld bracket from the screen that bolts to the pump cover.
Rear main cap oil galley is enlarged + the main feed passage to the block is radius ground at the entrance to it.
Also put baffles in the oil pan. Just a carry over from my early oval track wet sump motor building days.
Custom zero offset front hubs with Trans Am brakes.
Stock asbestos insulation removed from roof then cleaned, painted & new insulation.
Dash is done with SW gauges except am using a stock fuel gauge. Tach will be installed later.
Tilt column is in, radio will live in the glove box, hang on AC under the dash.
It’s a function over form build.
Had this fuse panel left over from a street rod build.
Rebuilt a stock distributor, changed mechanical advance springs & weights, converted it to electronic.
Moroso wires are from my last oval track car. Set the base timing using the starter to spin it over.
Carb gets a rebuild today.
Since we love all things with motors I'd like to share another project I've been working on. Started life as a $25 rolling frame from goodwill (razor mx650). My goal was to throw a gas engine in and not stretch the frame or remove the rear suspension. Had a old snowblower engine for a few years...
I guys, we are coming into riding season in northern Illinois, but because of this Pandemic and the precautions needed to contain it we are on a lock down. Does anyone understand this order as it pertains to going out for a ride? I cant see the harm unless this virus can land on someone behind...
Boy I could use some time off to enjoy my warrior. But my company wont shut down unless they are made too (Harley-Davidson)
Anyone else in the same boat? I don't want to get sick just want the time off of course.
