Projects Plan II - 62 Chevy II Drag Car

  1. It'll be interesting to hear about the drive-ability compared to the blower and dual carbs.

    I just went for a short drive, it seems to be ok...then I adjusted the idle a bit better. I think it will work for a long road trip. Doesn't take too long to swap it over.

    Here's another picture, showing off the 427 thing. Hey, it's still almost an L-88, aside from the slightly milder cam and not enough compression. But I'll be able to run 85-87 octane on the road trip (in the higher elevations, they sell lower octane fuel, because that's all you need)

    Of course it's a single master cylinder.

    We'll see the Barracuda again.

    Thank you...and I hope not in the classifieds. A ton of potential there. Just needs the time. It already has the right person.

    I was looking through my stuff and found a Torker 2-R. It's not a very good manifold, so it looks just right.
     
  9. Don’t you know that you are automatically going to die if you use a single master cylinder...

    My truck still has one as well...

    Looking forward to the barracuda making a comeback

    I’ve had so many people scream at me over the ol fruit jar on my afx but it works real good besides that’s all they had in 1964 lol besides you have over 22,000 miles on yours doesn’t seem to be an issue lol

  11. that's the same master cyl found on 64 thru 66 chevy & GMC trucks. It can be used on a tri five chevy car also. If you get one from a 3/4 ton truck it has a larger bore and gives you a better pedal.

    Looks weird without the huffer. Not bad, jut weird like when you shave off that beard you've worn for 10 years.:D

    Hopefully it will pick up some economy for you on the road, and stretch out the life of your blower as planned.

    If you increase the master bore size, it will increase pedal effort. Now if you increase the wheel cylinder bore size, it will increase braking effort.

    I like it. It's kind of like Plan II lite. Let's face it, you had to do something to slow it down and keep it in the 10's. Good luck at the track. I'm sure it will be fun.

    Yeah if he leaves the blower off I might have a chance at outrunning him at George rays but I doubt it lol

  16. Yes that correct. however I always run a 3/4 master on my 1/2 ton trucks and never noticed any big difference. Of course I still have asbestos brake linings.

    Just as long as you don't start taking bets BEFORE you put it back on!

    You going to do that with the hood taped closed, just because you can?

  23. I run the single master cylinder in my 66 chevelle. It's been there for 86,000 happy miles. If it fails I will down shift the four speed then hit the park brake.
