Re: New project

The heads are GM fastburns (210 cc intake runners )that are rolled a touch . I had them for a class i used to run that required a 23 degree head . Out of the box they will support 500 hp . These have had some touch up in the way of polishing and severe duty valve installed . Quench ended up being .041 , which is within the gap but a little bigger than i wanted . Compression should be 10.2-10.3 to 1 . They are raised runner and the Edelbrock rpm air gap is port matched . I would run a single plane , but a victor won't work with these heads due to the raised runner ( .210 i think ) plus i would have to have a new intake ported and this is only a "street truck" I will be topping that off with a cheater plate and 750 speed demon . This will be my 4th speed demon and i have never had a problem . Might step up to a custom built carb later .

Re: New project

Well i got the trans off to the shop for a rebuild . It is a long tail th-350 . The shop said they could make it a short shaft as i will be swapping back and forth between it and a powerglide with a brake .

And i got a little farther on the motor . Intake on and torqued and a few other parts added . Headers and mounts should be here monday and i should be starting the motor install on friday and working towards getting it running the following week .

Re: New project

A buddy of mine had a set of Landrum monos and caltracs for a first gen camaro that i thought might work . Well the Caltracs didn't work and im back to square one there . I did get the axle housing ends and axles . I ended up getting a smokin deal on a set of used 31 splines . I already have a 31 spline spool , so i went that way .

Just about got the motor ready to pull . I got it about half way apart and found out why it was running rough . O2 senser wire was pinched under the valve cover and grounded . The little motor was probably O.K. Oh well its coming out . GOing to try and trade it for a set of buckets at the salvage yard .

Re: New project

Well i got the 2.5 out and the mounts bolted in . Only 2 of the 3 bolts are accsssible and they are a pain to get in so welding the mounts is mansitory in my opinion . I cleaned up the frame with my 4 " grinder and a wire wheel so i can haul it down to the race car shop and have them welded . I'll get the motor in when i finish the mounts . Im going to see if he has a panish hammer for an air chisel and have the floor flange messaged while i got it over there . Here are a couple of pics i'll add some more later .

I have a 31 spline spool , but im thinking about buying an aftermarket case and using a Nascar detroit locker off ebay as they can be had for around $200 shipped . This will give me a wheel mount to wheel mount of 53" . Factory is 54.5" , so 3/4" per side narrower allowing me to run up to a 4.5 backspace wheel . I currently have 15 x 10 4 " back space but 4.5 backspace is alot more popular .

I am stuck on the "stock suspension" classes . I could have back halved it but then i'd be limited class wise . The old school backhalve classes are fast (4.80's) . Stock suspension classes run 275's or 26 x 8.5's and are around the 5.90's , this will give me a place to work into . Primary goal right now is Pinks all out and 7.0 index . I have a daughter going to college soon so it's going to be slower index stuff or nothing for a few years .

Re: New project

Sorry , i did get the housing finished , but my dad has congestive heart failure and has been hospitalized on and off for 2 monthes . He has only 15% heart muscle alive . Just got word he will not be getting released . They have already sent him home with the "nothing more we can do". Just the dye to check for blockage would probably shut his kidneys down & he is having 2 to 5 seizsures a day . Been spending most of my free time with him . Pretty much put projects on hold to enjoy what time is left .

Re: New project

Prayers sent from the Tolliver's. I lost a very dear uncle a couple weeks ago and I'm so glad I spent the weekend with him the weekend before he passed. My Uncle Larry was recently diagnosed with cancer and his heart couldn't take the chemo.
