    Looking forward to seeing (and hearing!) the blown version!
     
  10. Well after two months of the wrong parts going back and forth and other anomolies the trans is back in one piece, course naturally the new converter required me to make a new pilot bushing.....

    Looks good Carl, How's the manifold coming along? Tim Jones
     
  12. Well Tim I got sidetracked with the trans but did get the lower pulley mounted......and the intake holes all matched up now on to welding

  13. Hey Carl: Are you planning on running the blower pulley that far out on the snout? Can't really tell by the picture, but if it was mine - I'd have the pulley as close as you can to the block to reduce the amount of torque deflection you're putting on the crankshaft snout and load on the front of the crank in general.

    Just an opinion . . . :rolleyes:
     
  14. Na Dale thats not the final position it goes back another 1 1/2" I just slid it in with a spacer on the exist crank.......... wanted to see what it looked like with the pulley on front.....even with it back 1 1/2 it still stickes out there a ways...........but it does look cool..........

An old 5gal propane tank gave up its shell and a few pieces of rebar an old reefer dolly to move it around in and wa la a foundry...............thanks Jack for a job well done......Carl

  28. Has anyone besides me been ticked over the 2 yr requirement on seat belts for NHRA, just had to get new ones for this year again..........

    [​IMG]

    give my old ones away to Jim for his coupe.......
    2 1/2 hrs labor to replace these things....
    [​IMG]

    Well at least got the trans back together and started to reassemble it all, took me less time to put the engine in than the damn seatbelts!!

    Carl, It's looking great!

    We have to have new certs on our belts every 2 years. Do you have to have new belts every 2 years, or just new certs?
