had a bad vibration , so i tore motor done, taking it to machine shop..i found a broken timing gear but car still ran, i thought the timing was acting funny when i was setting timing..and it has the wrong pistons in it, the pistons that are in it are 240 pistons and are .230 in the hole..for a whooping my binding 7-1 compression..cam starts pulling at 3000 and stops at 6000..so if i put more cam in it and some 351w pistons to get the compression up, it should run pretty dam good for a 6 banger

I did one several years ago with 351 hyper kieth blacks with .100 dome and a ported 240 head. It was hard on the stock rod brgs but it was a power house. turned it 7000-7200 every run.

i was shocked that i got a 1.83 60ft ..then discovered it has 7-1 compression...with the piston ill put in it and cam, it should run 12.00

I'm sure it will run that, I was amazed at the power the engine we did made.

how did that work ? always wondered how a dome on a 351w will fit the inline head cause of the valve angle compared to the dome angle

I can't remember the exact dome height, but the volume was 5 cc and It had plenty of valve to piston clearance with a .650 lift cam and dur @ .050 around 260 on a 104 sep Trying to remember specs off the top of my head. but there close.

Check this out, pretty neat article

Just spotted this.. that's my chassis guy Mike Robinson... one hell of a craftsman. His old race car was a tube chassis Maverick that was absolutely gorgeous. 9.32 @ 149 with a 466 & Doug Nash Cool Wish I was more on my camera game back when he had it..
