    Love the pictures and I believe the rear suspension would help in the classification process. Love the Mcgurk manifold a real antique. Are those 94 crbs you're running? And lastly what car did your raditator come out of? I'm sure it wouldn't be available here but it is perfect in size. I have been looking all over for a used raditator for my car and all to no avail. New is cost prohibitive. Keep up the good work.:DRoy

    Hi 348, I found my radiator in an early dodge mini van, maybe 84, they have a radiator on one side and the condenser on the other side, so it's not real wide, and it has an electric fan with it, the motor was a 3 liter V6, so it cools my 3.7 liter slant 6 just fine, it even seems to cool better with the electric water pump drive, good luck on your search. Joe

    The car looks great I like the firewall position, with it between the box and bellhousing do you still need scatter shield over the clutch ?
     
  9. Yes.

    Keep at it boys, chasing your brake's now.

    Cheers,

    you need a 360 degree scatter shield, protects you, the crowd and other cars that you are racing and your own back tires.

    Man, if you can do that well as a FNG I'm scared to think of what will happen when you reach Grenade Inspector status.

    Sorry to see of your problems, when these old engines come apart they do tend to make sure that we can't put them back together again.

    Reminds me of about 40 years ago at Lions a fuel bike was coming up to the starting line and he run the revs up and the engine came apart. The carb was hanging from the throttle cable and the cylinders were gone. The guy looked down and gave the throttle a couple of twists I guess to see if what he was looking at was really true. :eek:Roy
