Scott injector hat - Need a photo

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Brootal, Jun 18, 2011.

  1. Not just any photo. I need a shot of an ORIGINAL Scott 'Super Slot' injector scoop that shows the inside, looking up to the top surface if possible.

    Anyone got one kicking around a shed, or on their car?

    As seen on Tony Nancy's gorgeous dragster...

    And of course, Mad Max's Interceptor. :)

  3. Thanks for the offer, but it needs to be an original one. I'm looking for casting marks on the inside of the scoop.

  5. No worries, Doc. I had a quick look on the net, but couldn't find what I was looking for. That's why I put the question out there. I'm hoping someone has one kicking around that they can get a good photo of.

  7. Thanks fuzzybear, looking for a real close up of the inside of the scoop though.

    Is that your Interceptor? :)

    just FYI, the Tony Nancy car in your first post actually used an Enderle "Barn-Door" with a Jimmy Summers fabricated, Steve Swaja designed, handformed scoop, not a Scott
     
  9. Well, there you go. :)

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    Still a great photo.

    that is one beautiful dragster
     
  11. OK... this is what I'm looking for. Sorry for the crappy screen grab pic, but it's all I've got to work with. Trying to find out if any other Scott injector hats have a casting mark or possibly a weld repair on the inside. It's tough to see in the pic, but I've circled it.

  13. Very cool fasttimes. Do you have a larger version of the photo on the bench? If my eyes don't deceive me, it looks like it's got the same mark on the underside.

    I had pictures of my "Scott's Super Slot" the later models and mine did have a stamp inside... I'll see if I can find the photo's...
     
  17. Thanks for all the help, guys. That bigger version's not really any clearer fassttimes. :(

    Royalshifter - Do you have a close up pic of the one on the dragster showing the inside?

    Brootal, Your hat appears (hard to tell) fabbed rather than cast - maybe it's just the picture, but it appears that the base has been formed and the seem almost looks welded.
    Maybe it's just the pic - kinda hard to tell.

    The guy that bought my Scott Super Slot "Randy in Vancouver" is in correspondence with the originator himself and he said that the first scoops were fabbed up out of sheet metal and it wasn't until his injectors were mass produced before they were cast from aluminum.

    He said they were crude at best... but worked for the dragsters at wide open throttle!
     
  21. You know what, I was wondering that myself as another pic I've seen looks like there's a weld running along the seam.

    Wingnutz - I wonder if a fabricated one was used as a pattern for the cast ones?

    From what Randy told me... it was!

    The Aluminum Guy on ebay is casting them to fit dual quads and they are adjustable for different set ups.

    I think he's asking around $350 and I sold my original for almost triple that.

    Here is a Scott Slot 6-71 top. Painted black inside but you are able to see where the orginal casting is ground. Can provide other pics just let me know.

    Hey Brootal, Just want to help you out with a clear pic of what you're looking for. This scott hat is the same one in the screen grab you supplied.[​IMG]
     
  25. Cheers, mate. But it looks like you need some technical assistance with posting pics. :)

    Would love to see it. Story has already run in Street Machine, but would be cool to get some factual info on the whereabouts of the hat.

    after owning 8 Super Slots in the last 14 years I can assure you that 3/4 of them had this casting mark on the inside. Mel himself told me that quality control was not a huge factor so it was no big deal if the inside of the scoop had a few blems. Even the outside had it's issues with the odd pit mark. I'm guessing you are in search of the actual super slot as in the movie and trying to use the casting flaw to verify a unit may be the original. I have had a few people contact me, trying to sell what they claim to be the actual unit used in the movie and they have all used the casting flaw as their selling point...no dice. There will never be any way to prove that some one has the actual unit unless they can provide home movies of them removing it from the car....Murray Smith himself removed it and returned it to the guy they borrowed it from and it was sold shortly afterwards. I tried to track it but after talking to 2 people, the trail went cold
