The Y block that's ready to be put into my other A coupe.
That's an awesome looking Y Block, would like to hear the specifics on it please.
56 312 Y block. 9.5 compression
Fenton 3x2 intake
Mummert aluminum heads and valley pan
Edmonds air cleaners
Roto Faze dual coil points distributor
Frank Rice aluminum timing cover and water pump
T bird valve covers
57 Garbage can fuel filter
I’ve been collecting parts for several years and just brought it home on friday from L & R Engines in Santa Fe Springs the shop that trusted to put it together.
Thank's for the post Dave, that roadster behind the Y block looks mighty fine too!
Thank you and everyone else for the interest,always wanted a small bird engine in a 32 and the valve covers always had me so 327 out and 312 in.
Love this thread, no matter how period correct any of the engines may be. It's just nice to see some care and concern, that there is still a little show with the go. Gary
Tell us more about the turbos & how good they work?
Mine leaks fuel and oil but I would not have it any other way !

LOVE THIS CAR
Just finished this little '58 325 Dodge Hemi. Just a few small details left, and it will be complete.
How did you collect the output of those Fenton manifolds and do they sound quite different from the norm?
Nice work on ignition leads.
