Johnny, do you want me to be on the lookout for a 2 car trailer?
Not yet sir. Because this thread name includes "Other Toys" in the title, probably leave it here.
I removed the heads on the Fiddle Picker looking for a water leak. Ended up being a crack at the head bold that runs into the "4 clyinder wall. Stinks ! That cylinder has already been sleeved for the same reason from a head bolt on the other side of the cylinder. Not sure what I'm going to do about this. Maybe sleeve it again if they can and put a repair plug in the bolt hole. Going to pick up another block today.
Got a backup motor going together , 327 ci, while waiting on the 306 at the local engine shop. Block done, crank done, pistons and rods showed up today. There's hope, trying to make the March 21 SEGA race in Florida !!
Florida race got postponed. I wasn't gonna make it , so looking forward to Shady Side in April. We have started on a 55 Chevy for Super Stock. Getting carried away with it (can't help it) and is going to take a while. So, I have purchased this 67 Chevelle 300 4dr to make Super Stock this season. Got the parts ordered to convert to 4 speed. Change wheels, scoop and whatever else to get it ready.
Hey guys. Been a while. I have put a turbo 350 in the 54 Stude running with index racers. Trying to find a fit for the "Fiddle Picker" Studebaker. Turns out, worked out great !! Won the gasser race at Ringgold, Ga. this past weekend, then won the Super Eliminator round with a dead on index pass !! It's happy, I'm happy with the out come . I love the 4-speed stuff, Still have the Super Stock 67 Chevelle that we are running. Looking for power...ain't we all. Life is good !!
Good to hear of your progress.
Way to go Johnny! I hope to catch you at Knoxville in a couple weeks.
Hey Brian !! Great !! Stop by and say hello !! Still waiting on the Falcon debut !!
