Re: 69C40/build

Thanks guys! Nice build shortchev I look forward to seeing it done I can imagine how difficult your build is grafting that front end on that chassis can't be fun? C10-72 II no this is the only thread on this project. I'd like check out your 68 though!

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
