    Coolest thing I've seen in a while. I have a couple of chevy bangers in queue for my time and money. Can't wait to get to them.

    Thanks! The car is pretty much worthless except for rounden up cattle and destroying tires haha

    The cam is a Stipe RR340, its actually a flathead cam. I figured id give it a shot, its not very streetable as it has 1.5 to 1 rockers and huge ports.

    I found these specs online.

    I modified the oil pump so it woukd build more pressure and ran a line from the oil pump set screw. I also am running an oil line to the center main and oil to the rear dippers.

  16. Hey Pierre,

    I think Jimsky (Bluto) gave me your email address a few years ago. But, when I sent you, what ever you needed at the time, the email address was kicked back. I think it had something to do with a starter drive for a banger.

    At any rate, what I did, to run oil to the OHV cylinder head, is to run a small rubber (no more than 3/8") line up to the head. Don't use solid line, it may crack or break. I took the line off the main oil gallery (we're talking a Model B block) up to the head. We took a threaded plug and drilled a very small hole (approx. 3/32"). That was attached at the head. You don't want to get too much oil up in the rocker box, hence the small reducer hole.

    JK

    haha hope your NOT wearing your seat belt. Better to get thrown from the wreckage than be a smear on the pavement.
