292 mock up

This is my first post. I hope the picture works. This is my mock up 292 going in my 53 3100. I'm figuring out the adapter from the blower to the plenum.

Re: 292 mock up

OH that is one pretty brute of an engine. How much are you going to have to set it back in the firewall?

Re: 292 mock up

My radiator with 3300 cfm electric fan is about 7" thick. I think I can move it forward about 6". I need 7" in front of the crank snout for the serpentine harmonic balancer, crank fired ignition oil pump drive pulley and blower pulley. The 292 is 3" longer than the stock 235. Looks like 5" will do it. I had a mid-shifter kit put on the TKO 600. Behind that I have a frankland quick change rear end with Bicknel torque arm.

I bought the rear end used from an old friend that used to race. I took it Frankland's factory in PA and had it rebuilt and retubed to narrow it for the 53 1/2 ton. They put a Gleason locker in it and flanged it for the Wilwood brakes. Moser is about 60 miles from my house and they made the axles in about 3 hours while I waited. I thought the torque arm looked cooler than traction bars and would take some of the shock if my foot accedentily slipped off the clutch. It took forever to polish it. That's some hard stuff.

This is just a mock-up engine. Topp motersports / Gaerte racing engines is building the real one now. I think it's at the painter. Firethorn red pearl to match the truck with pearl black fenders. That's a ways off.

Once I get the engine set I'm taking to GP headers in Wisconsin To have them make the stainless steel headers and complete exhaust. I don't want it too loud. I plan to drive the wheels off it. I figured with the engine specs they could tune the entire system. It's going to get a little weird around the firewall.

Mick, who was your friend that raced? Sprints or modifieds? I may know him. I've spent my life at the local dirt tracks in our area

Bud VanScoik, probably not spelled right. His dad raced also.He ran modified mostly at Plymouth IN and owns a junk yard in Leesburg IN. He's a country western star now. Buddy Eugene and Claudia. Real big overseas. They do the old school stuff. I used to pit for him sometimes.
