    Quick update.
    Since changing to a 5400rpm stall, this engine is waking up nicely. I have taken the diff head out and getting 4.11:1 gears installed. This will get the blood pumping again.
    Here are a couple of clips of us racing on a non prepped goat track 1/8' mile. wouldnt even hook up so I put on a smoke show for the crowd. A fellow hotrodder with 300hp less bet me to first place

    It was quite scary in the breaking area even at 107mph!!!!
    Cheers

    So, I'm looking for a board member that makes the aluminum PS pulleys. and this thread pops into my life.
    That has to be one of the most Beautiful pieces of work I've ever seen. Was that a 1" polyurethane slab for a carb spacer ?
    triple nickles is just a fantasy for me, but wow was that done well. I like an engine that is also a work of art.
    That's one bad-ass work of art.

    Thanks for the kind words Joe. The spacer was made of polyethylene as an adaptor and also a heat transfer shield. We have since done away with it as it was starting to leak.
