Got a new toy for the olds engine...
Looking good !!!
I don't know Paul you have a corner on being a Olds nut
you have the rest of the injection setup?
looks pretty clean
A buddy of mine has a pump for me. I will need to piece the rest together.
I've always liked gassers, and Studes. Now you're combining both, it looks great!
I gotta try one of those one day, be sure and give me a call when you get it running
oh yeah. It will be a party.
Hey Paul have you looked at this thread? http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/40-willys-project.550683/page-7#post-10659528 He has a injected Olds in it which sounds wicked.
Thanks Super Streak.
Man that chassis looks nice! Ill let you know how the E85 works out on mine, looks like you have the 'newer' style manifolds with the built in spouts for the radiator hoses to attach. Nice build man!!!
Man. I love the injected olds idea. Cant wait to see more pics!
Oh nice score! What's the throttle plate diameter?
I will have to let you know when I get back home. I am down in Ca in drydock on my ship.
I do know it is a Hilborn 303-0-8B which is actually for a 58-64 371-394. I have a set of 57-58 371 heads which are having some extensive mods (splitting center exhaust port and mods to port design) done to them we will be bolting them on after mods to the intake ports.
Just found this build, what a cool car!!
Thanks. I can't wait to get home and work on it some more.
I emailed hilborn with my serial number for the injection and got this emailed back this morning. So cool.
That is cool
'57 block bored and stroked to 406 ci with '60 heads?
Sounds pretty wild huh?
I picked up a hilborn fuel pump from a buddy but its the wrong unit anyone have a size 0 or S0 pump interested in trading for a size 1 hilborn pump.
Injection sitting on my mock up engine
It keeps on getting better!
Dig the stacks leaned over like that more than the straight up look. Wonder if that was done for a reason. My hemi setup was made to stand straight up.
My guess would be they are leaned like that to keep the shot into the intake runner as straight as possible.
Where did you ever find that clean injector, boy you did good
You might send the unit down to Hilborn and have it all checked & flowed that way you will know that it will be right for your new engine and set up, money well spent as my Injector never missed a lick !!!
