    Sorry Fordfltrucknut, I didn't think about your truck being a 4X.
    If it was 2WD it would've been easier to fit in your truck.

    Thanks. They are Repro's of the Stelling-Hellings Helmut type from the 50's. Tom Langdon @ Stovebolt sells them.

    That's pretty. Tell us about the blower setup. 6:71? Underdrive/overdrive? cfm's?

    Looks to be 4-71. Nice job! Nice front snout. Is it hard to get the belts lined up correctly?
    Looks like an oil line is plumbed into it.

    Actually, looks like the fuel line going into a finned aluminum filter with the red plastic line coming out to the fuel block on the firewall. Always loved the red lines.

    The 4-71 is running a 35 top and 32 lower drive gear for a 8.6:1 under drive. The 94's feed about 400 CFM and the engine had the compression reduced to 7.5:1. Running a 5 speed with 373 gears in the rear. The whole thing makes for a comfortable highway run with the ability to cruise at 65-70 mph in 5th at 22-2400 rpm. When I need to pass 4th gear is right there. Haven't had it dyno'd yet because I'm still trying to sort out some of the inevitable little issues that come with any build.

    jimcin,

    You reduced the 235's cr to 7.5? I thought that was a pretty standard ratio for those engines through most of their life.

    I got this:

    I have to gather a few more parts, and finish the floor work, and then I will put it in.

    200-inch, 9.5:1 compression, final generation head (with a ton of port work), custom cam grind, no carburetor.

    Nice work, Gimpy!
    So that engine features TBI? Who's did you use?

    Not a hot rod but it's a good old original 65 Ranchero with a 3 spd column. I got another 200 I'm gonna hop up and fit with 3 Holley 1904 glass bowl carbs. I'm thinking of either sticking that in a falcon, fairlane, Ranchero or a sleeper model A.

    Truckee is close. I hope to see your pickup someday. Our Inliner club is doing our annual show the first Saturday in June in Minden. : "Rappin; to Minden" Come spend the day with us. Lots of nice inline engines.

    1960 Falcon, backed up by a T56, followed closely behind by an 8.8. The transmission and rear end are already in the car. I have just a little more tidying up on the tunnel, and a few holes in the firewall to fill, and then it will go in.

    I went with a "non-traditional" engine management (has spark control, too) system because my cruising range sometimes includes 10,000-feet of elevation change, will often include both 80-mph freeway jaunts, and long runs of bumper-to-bumper traffic.

    This is my daily driver, so "set it and forget it" is the name-of-the-game.

    I think when I was researching it, the compression for a 60 truck 235 was 8.25 or 8.5

    I saw that advertised just the other day. I plan on going. Thanks. Grew up in Santa Cruz so I knew Rick Peterson who was one of the founders. Hope to meet you there.

    Jim,

    There's a famous song about your home town.
    Thanks for the info on the 235 cr. I never knew it went over 8:1. All stats I've ever seen say 7.5:1.

    I'll be looking for you. Rick was a friend and we miss him. I spent a lot of time in Santa Cruz my self. Though I didn't live there.

    I'm currently building a 1932 ford roadster with a XJ6 3.4 liter engine,a moss four speed
    Manual tranny, out of a 1952 Jaguar MK VII. Engine runs great, and am finishing boxing
    The frame and building the center crossmembers. I had to move the front cross member
    Forward 2" to accommodate the long engine.
    No photos yet, will post when ready
