    If any part of any oil pan hits a model a axle then you really f-ed something up badly.

    I will see if I can dig up my notes. The last time I tried was over the winter between 1999 and 2000.

    Just a guess, maybe around 2200 lbs. Nine inch Ford housing out of 57 1/2 ton p.u. Strange alum center, Detroit locker, 3.50 gears, Dutchman axles.

    Old sprint car block,I had it welded up ,8 new sleeves ,no oil pump mount on rear main, hence the belt driven oil pump/fuel pump, Scat 4 inch crank ,roller cam,brodix wildthing heads.I will break it in with a victor intake and holley ,and later running Hilborns. My friend used to build sprintcar motors here in san jose is doing the machine work..I have had life get in the way so back at it.I have a cast iron T-10 and will be putting a winter quickchange. Anything else I can answer for you.
     
  18. Just cut a hole for the dist. and add an early heater box on the inside to cover the hole, you can open the heater door and adjust the timing while you drive.

    Is your block one of the lightweight sprint car blocks or a drysump version of the standard 350 plus block?
    When all done, let us know the outcome, I'm jones'n to get mine on the road too but as you said; life seems to get in the way.

    Look at the early 60's Chris craft 283. They were mounted backwards in the boat (flywheel forward) and had the distributor off the cam and a block off in the stock dizzy hole. The dummy dizzy drove the oil pump and also had a tach drive on it. It's reasonably priced parts.
