Yeah that blue looks great, i will look today at work.
I needed to step away from the car tonight and get the motor finished up. I think having it complete will make me feel like this is doable. So it was time to dig into the porting on head number 2. Not gonna get fancy with it, just do some basic shaping and try to get them to flow a little air.
And then the messy part. Hope to finish them tomorrow.
That a Winonna Head Master? I started out with one of those many years ago.. put in a lot of seats and guides with it.
Yes sir, the Ol" Ph2000 It's Actually the first machine i worked on in a shop roughly 25 years ago. So when one came up available in good shape for my shop i bought it. A Serti was just too much money for my budget at the time ( and still lol)
I sold mine in 86 or 87 and bought a Serdi lol
So this bitch gonna be in attendance this weekend or not?
Not gonna make it. =( Got parts at the machine shop that wont be ready. Very bummed about it, becasue i probably wont have the car for the Meltdown either
finished the tin work up tonight, except for the trans tunnel.
And did a mock up, the Wife finished painting the windows and i finished tin work and then we installed them so i could post some pics tonight, .....so tired....soverytired....
ok Joel, WHAT UP?!!!!!!!
I'm back in the garage tomorrow morning, I went to the Meltdown (without the car) and then when i got home i had some family issues that i had to attend to.
Wish I was closer! I know how frustrating it can be so close to the end of the build!!! Keep on given'er!
Oooo the suspense!!
I wish we had arranged to met up at the Meltdown. I drove my car there but didn't race. My wife happens to be in Grand Rapids this week visiting our son and his family.
Rod bolts hit the block, so been busy straightening this mess out.
So i did this....
In the end i pulled the block totally down scrapped my cam bearings and oil galley plugs and basically started over. it made for a very hard week. I am currently helping a friend with his 4 banger so im taking a short break to get my head clear.
Make sure those rod bolts clear the camshaft too!
Been playing around with hand lettering. mainly so i could do this car. Decided to give it a try tonight. Its not perfect but it will do for now .
We gonna see you this weekend?!
Dig the name! One of my favorites!
unfortunately not. I am shooting for the October race mainly because of my work schedule.
Hey man, haven't heard from you in a while! Hope everything is going ok!!
Need to stop parking that rusty Dodge pickup so close to your Henry J. You know that stuff is contagious. Good luck with your project , you are closer to being ready than mine is. Mine needs a cash trans fusion . So I can buy some parts.
That old Witch Doctor is looking Good!
Sell me that old aluminum ford intake... (smile)
Did you ever get the car done? Such a good build thread!
The car was sold before completion, then sold a couple (I think) times again after that.
