    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. teardown 1.jpg teardown 2.jpg

    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. 0316201201.jpg

    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 !! Cody TNT 2.jpg Brainerd trophies.jpg Ala 1.jpg
