Projects Flat FED build

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by roseville carl, Jan 14, 2010.

  1. actually got 91lbs of aluminum for free but it was in a form I couldn't use so......melt it, got 60 of it melted so far, now it gives me more to make shit out of. Of course that's when the new petrobond arrives. Humm casting a block?????lets see, don't need no water holes have sleeves on hand, hummm, nahhh maybe next year. Besides I would need a bigger foundry..................and yes Flathead FED's are a blast keeps this old fart busy and alive.........

    Just curious Carl, do you have any competition where you run or is your trophy shelf bulging?

    I am not so sure that Grant would want any discussion about his age , but he is still racing and still running sixes. The current FED which he built a couple of years ago from scratch at home is powered by a BBC. He still has the old car and the home made engine.In fact he is a Hamber but hasn't said much .

    You could give it any kind of ports you wanted...make your own solid heads too and experiment with chamber shapes.

    And bury the head studs deep for greater clamping, more boost ! and/or move them so you can bore it for 3 and 9/16 sleeves, or not even use sleeves, just Nikasil plate the huge bores and even bigger ports, valves and ....... raise the cam bore and enlarge it for much bigger lift cam, 5 main bearings with 4/6 bolt caps/girdle, steel stroker crank, ...meanwhile back in the land of rational reality.........:rolleyes:
     
  7. Pete haven't won any yet I just make the Trophy's to give to Ron Bowers and his injected 6 at Eagle Field (gotta beat that sob sometime soon), gotta make him start on I 5 next time.........,
    And yes Tom there is a seven port 322 for the next rebuild..........
    and Pete still running the cam you ground for me....Love it!!!!

    Maybe it's just the video, but it doesn't sound like it's running on all 8 when he drives away. I recently had some rust bits clog one of the jets on my dual Stromberg setup. Sounded just like that, and it was running on 6 or 7 cylinders.
