    Hiker, send a PM to Rick "hardtimesainit" on both here and FordBarn. He might be able to help you with 4 port info. I think he checks the FordBarn more often than the HAMB, so try both.
    For the 2 Port, try Charlie Yapp from SOSS.

    I will be heading up but not to race, I was a little slow on the up chuck and missed the deadline.
     
  25. RE the Ford flathead V8 race at Santa Margarita: I was told (just yesterday) that the Hop Up people had originally proposed to run on the dirt. Latest info is that they're now going to run on the paved airstrip. I don't know the length they're going to run. The Hop Up folks were at the F.A.S.T time trials in July. In that meet, the track is only 1/10th of a mile. That to keep the speed down.

  26. Further discussion of the RPM Nationals the 28th of October at the Santa Margarita Ranch: The races will include 4 bangers and rails in addition to flathead V8's. They'll run on an 1/8th mile course.

    Thought I would introduce myself. Picking up a 30 sport coupe tomorrow. Plans are to go with a B engine with T5 conversion using AA bell housing and a torque tube conversion. Juice brakes, dropped front axle and convert to 12 volts. Will post pics when I get it. Already got a B engine. KIMG0151.JPG

    tell us about the B, T5 and torquetube. I would like to know how those pieces fit together.

    Adapters are needed, but once they are married, they seam to work together well.
