The Edmunds setup at Carlisle was like $1500...with an edelbrock intake. A little pricey OK a lot pricey!
They were asking $2300 for the Hilborn setup. They knew what they had and were firm on the price. I guess $peed costs $$$
Look what I have
Thanks to a great guy in Texas, Dominick Hide.
They are the ones in his pictures with the top edges of the fins painted blue and the Edelbrock done in red.
I blasted them and then TIG welded up and replaced the one corner fin that had been cut off.
I will repair a few of the nicks in the top of the fins and then polish the sides and fin tops.
Thanks so much.
These will look great on the new Y Block from Tim.
From what I understand from a number of sources,..... $2,300. is a smoking deal for a complete "Y" Block Hilborn FI unit.
Any more Y Block stuff hiding out there ? I was succesfull in finding a set of Edelbrock valve covers as I hinted to in my first post, and this thread has been very entertaining.
Those are BAD ASS..I need some!
I have a complete 292 from (we think) a 58 Ford and a 54 Merc-O-Matic, the engine runs but has a lifter/rocker arm/pushrod problem and the tranny may be able to be rebuilt....they need a new home.
No pics at the moment... but you'll have to take my word; Weiand finned rocker covers, Weiand 3x2, Weiand fuel block, ram's horns, and ezc-g heads.
horne 4x2 intake, Bud Elhart valve covers, ronco mag, aluminum adjustable roller rockers!!!!
I have to find a pair of those valve covers! Bad ass!
love that intake
I wonder who currently owns the rights to those Bud Elhart valve cover, It would be killer if someone could get permission to make a new run of them.
I know I would love a set of them
There is another hamber on here with a killer 56 ford that has a set of the Bud Elhart Valve covers.
here is a pic of his engine bay and of his 56
had one for sale for years nobody wants it. 54 truck motor
Some old and some new.
Oh man... that Horne is certifiably boner-iffic!! Nice setup!
Brent, your weiand setup sounds tasty too!
My speed parts
Anybody got a starter for Lincoln Y block 317? 52. I'm not for sure if it's interchangeable with other Y's
I HAVE A FEW SETS OF HEADS AND WHAT NOT , BUT I AM LOOKING FOR A RUNNING MOTOR FOR MY BUDDYS 56 , ANYONE HAVE A LEAD??????
My 57 Country sedan had sat since 1982. When we first fired it up in 1991 the exaust had gotten some rust. The orange cloud was hilarious, but the sound was magnificent. Y block through 60's glass packs. MMmmmmMMMmmm
Nevermind. Got the part number. Fits several fords too
Would your friends name be Patrick by chance?
Looks more like a pump for a 6.2 GM diesel than a Y-Block.
Holy crap.......I think I just found H.A.M.B thread heaven!!!!
Doesn't belong here to be sure, my thread has been polluted by a picture of a Small Block Chev oil pump of all things UGH !
Yes, it is isn't it. Love the Y Blocks. Nothing sounds as sweet as a strong running Y Block.
This thread should stay alive for a bit longer, anyone else want to "come out" ??
I have some I will try posting tonight.
Selling off my Edelbrock FM 225 P.M. me if interested...
