Here is my 455 Buick thats in my falcon.
Lets see more pictures of that Studebaker in you avatar.
This used to be my 331 Hemi. I traded the truck since this pic. Building a new and improved Hemi.
Here is my Flathead in the 31
My avatar engine, 59 235 in my 47 Chevy PU.............
348 in ´50 Fleetline
This is the 350 in my 56 Chevy. I just wanted to detail it out, as it was looking kind of shabby after 20+ years. These were taken early this year. Car is back together now.
Heads are Patriots from White Performance in Kingsport, TN. Polished the ends too. Pretty good luck with them, but I also had to utilize headers, as the ram horn manifolds won't fit flush with the heads because of the taller valve cover rail unless you used a really, really thick gasket.
It was a trick using the old Edelbrock intake because the intake's ports are about 2/3 size of the ports on the heads, big difference! Used the 1/8 thick Felpro intake gasket glued to the head to boost the intake up high enough to be centered over the ports. Seems to work alright and runs great to. Not a race car so any adverse affects of port mismatching are negligible I'm sure.
My mockup of my 8BA in a '50 F1, working hard on the body to get this on the road.
My ol henry j and my 32 roadster.
A couple of my twin turbo flathead. Navarro heads and intake. Almost done with machine work.
My brother's '40 merc originally dropped in as is in '49.
O/T shadetree daily drive 308" Cleveland rebuild courtesy the late Edwin Stratford. This engine swapped for a watercolour painting of Edwin's dilapidated family farmhouse done by myself. Painting won 'Spirit of Coloola Shire art Award'- 1999.
This sweet 60,000 mile engine hauls arse. The flathead keeps it honest.
Please keep us posted Greenracer. This has intrigue.
Here is the one for my 34 coupe . . . am working away on the rest of the dang car. Takes a lot longer than one is willing to admit! Hope to have the darn thing on the road by the end of summer . . . won't be done, but hopefully rolling along under it's own power.
PS: Got rid of the Demon carbs - just didn't look right for a late 60's style build.
adding a fuel primer of some sort in the intake will help cranking since youre having to pull fuel uphill. good job I like it.
sweet. i was hoping my motor would make it on here. i just bought this one from krackerjack88 last month.
looks good and runs good.
Heres the small block in my 55...
