I don't know the full history I know they used a starter motor to turn the blower.
Ad from 1959 another H.A.M.B. thread-
327 in a 34 ford, Larry
Cool to see some SB Chev script covers that don't say Corvette! JW
No, the cast alloy ones, I run the original 283 type on my 301. JW
I'm trying to make mine look old school and "neglected" even though it almost all new inside...
heres probably the cleanest one I have put together- for a 1981 cutlass I had. It was an L82 vette 350, summit 1102 cam and lifter set, edelbrock performer intake, street demon 625 carb, 305 heads that I ported and polished and gasket matched, and a retro tri- air cleaner with finned valve covers.
Those are valve covers I've never seen before!
Some of the various small blocks my grandfather CJ and I have built over the years for our various cars.
The current one in the works:
The 1962 327 going in my Deuce Rdstr.
had a tri power 350
in my 32 with geardrive lakes headers, dart heads, crane cam, pentronics distributor
A couple of mine.
1955 265 Corvette. they not the green color like a regular 265?
1957 283 270 HP
@roadster1923 - is this one of your projects? Looks to be a well grafted subframe on a Chevy tophat frame if I’m not mistaken, but I’m mainly curious which headers those are and how they fit. Think they would have enough clearance if it was still the original frame? I’ve got a 39 Chevy and am looking for ideas for headers. Thanks.
Yes, that is my 37 Chevy coupe project and it is a 1969 Nova sub-frame graft to the original frame. I reinforced the sheetmetal bottom cover with 1/8th inch plate steel. The headers are Patriot Clipster headers and they seem to have plenty of clearance. If you need close-up pictures or measurements send me a P/M. Thanks for the kind remarks!
