This will be my second and more ambitious build of a vintage motor. The first was a 315 Dodge Poly converted to a 325 Hemi. A very satisfying exercise that has yielded 40K miles of reliable fun. Fun and satisfaction that would not have happened without the help of many others, like vendors, friends and a tolerant wife. I always liked the Poly valve covers because no one knows what they are. I put the covers from the first motor on a SBC and had everyone scratchin their heads. Too much fun. And while building the first motor, I heard many opinions that the Poly heads were still a pretty efficient design and not a bad choice for a cost reduced option,.....so I bought a 270 cheap, a few years ago. Previously I also was given a junk 2x2 manifold and just happen to have a sweet little roots type blower from a Lightning pickup. A friend had put several of these on Baby Hemis and Flat Heads. So guess what I'm thinking. Talk about a funky setup. Well sometimes plans have to be adjusted,.... re the Hemi. I'll "get on" with that story in the next posting. I'm looking forward to sharing this adventure with a diverse group of friends and with anyone on this forum who wishes to contribute or question. I'm also challenged to write a good sentence, so bear with me.
