This is my Crower set up for big block chevy sure would like to have the slanted stacks for it.
My Enderle an AFRs, for a future LSR project
An ad that came with the 1963 sbc Enderle. Which was $350
Here's pictures of my Hilborn on my 392 Hemi, that's going in my fendered '27 T Coupe.
440 '68 Cuda .... circa 1990
Jackson's on A Fuel car.
don't know much about this intake. it says Scott on it if anyone knows any info? found it in my grandpas shop
In 1957 Scott designed the Scott injectors and Scott and his business parter, Ron Hess made the patterns and did 90% of the machining in a small shop in Santa Monica, California.
Scott Fuel Injection business was more or less a hobby, not a full time business as Scott was working full time as a test engineer and his partner, Hess worked full time as a cabinet maker. Scott wanted to design a fuel injection system that was so inexpensive that everyone could buy one, so Scott came up with the simple system that bolted on a 97 carburetor butterfly base and sold for $24.95. When Scott decided to build injector for blowers he decided on the centrifugal pump because they dont have to be flowed. They all pump the same pressure and volume and there are no gears or veins to wear out. Theres no reason for a bypass as the fuel recirculates in the pump, a desired feature, as theres always a head of fuel available when the throttle is popped open with no pressure drop. Scott used Stromberg carb jets in the nozzles of all his injectors as they are accurately drilled, inexpensive and readily available. Scott injected above the butterfly as the fuel is better vaporized when it passes with high velocity around the butterfly during idle. When the throttle is opened the fuel is deflected off the butterfly for better distribution.
Scotts injectors were unique as Enderle, Algon, Kinsler, Crower, like Hilborn, used positive pumps, bypass jets, aerated nozzles and injected under the butterfly. The Scott injectors used a centrifugal pump, no bypass, no aerated nozzles and injected above the butterfly. The positive pumps on the other injectors were Tuthill designed positive pump parts installed in their own castings. Scott designed and manufactured the centrifugal pump.
Also see the pump sub page (click here)
Scott injectors dominated in 1963 winning the NHRA worlds championship Roy Davis, NHRA National champion Hirata and Hobbs, world series champion and runner up Dick Vest and Speed Sport, UDRA Top eliminator Sandoval and Madden.
Scott built injectors from 1957 to 1966 when Scott went to work for the US government as an engineer in Southest Asia. On May 20, 1964, Scott Engineering appointed Mickey Thompson Equipment Co. as their sole distributor for the Scott Super Slot fuel injection and agreed to purchase a minimum of 240 units per year. (I have a copy of this agreement)
Scott returned to the US in 1970 and designed emission controls for the Califonia NOx retrofit program. He licensed his patents to STP Corp and worked for them as a consultant until 1979.
Scott designed, made patterns and built several centrifugal pumps for fuel injection. These pumps were used on Butch Blairs top fuel sand dragster and top fuel dragster. The sand dragster set an all time record for 100 yards of 2.26 seconds at 147 MPH. The E.T. record still holds. The top fuel dragster finished third in the NHRA worlds finals in 1988. Scott also designed and made patterns for several four throat throttle body fuel injectors.
Scott discontinued fuel injectors for sale in 1992 but still makes a few for friends.
In 1988, Scott designed a high speed centrifugal fuel pump 16,000 RPM which flowed 60 GPM at 200 PSI. This pump was used on Butch Blairs top fuel dragster. Scott used the Enderle hat and modified the Enderle barrel valve to accommodate the centrifugal pump with this set-up; Blair won the last Bakersfield Fuel and Gas Championship at the old Fomosa Drag Strip before it was repaired and modified to meet NHRA specifications.
Demandracing...You should take very good care of that injection, it is designed for a small block chevy and as only a few were made..it's rare..
Do you have the pump? That's as hard to find as the injection.
Ran a set just like that in 65 on my gasser, loved it.
A custom adaptation of a SBC 2 3/8 injector to a Y-Block ford
Just came out of the Duster...(for Sale)
Going in the 29 Phaeton...
More Please, Did you do a tech thread on this setup??? With the goofy Y-Block port setup, I would like to see more.
How about some FE Ford porn from the interwebs to go along with all of these Chebbie's.
BBC with my youngest.
All the Ford shots are pure eye candy!!! Thanks for posting. The least I can do is post'em again
Fap fap fap fap fap...
Shhh, I won't tell anyone if you don't but that GT40 setup is - oh God, how do I say it - *electronic*.
90+ Nitro, 50* in the mag, Two 80a pumps, 16 nozzles...
I won't tell if you don't......
The Can-Am style tunnel-port sure is unique though.
Taken back in either 63 or 64 at the Indy Nats.
If you decide to part with this set-up I'd appreciate a P.M.
I have the same set-up and would like to have another for spare's
+ you'd be keeping it in the Scott family.
Some more Scott Stack pictures,
Mel was my Uncle and I still have a bit of his Injection stuff.
Willo 96 thanks for the info on Mel either you knew him or have a good source for information
I'll gather up all my other stuff "Super Slot an 97 stuff" and start a a Scott Injection thread it would be nice to see what's left out there.
2 3/16" Hilborn. Circa 1970. Bought it in 2005 unused and still in the Hilborn box. We run 18" stacks cause they look right sticking through the hole in the hood. Gonna try some 6" stacks this year just to see how much it picks up.
Rare Australian Amos unit for a 318 Mopar.....
Where can I find the balls and chains to put in the stacks? What are the balls made of?
does home-made count?
