Thanks for the kind words guys................. The run in stand was procured from a trade Dave Freelander and I did. It's really nice. I just wired a Duraspark 2 ignition box up for now, running it with a Msd distributor and an old accel coil .

It makes it nice to run the engine , set the valve lash hot, and check for oil leaks, and water leaks before going to the dyno. It gives you all tuning time on the dyno instead of working on problems....................

I have got to get on Coon- 61's engine and my P-51 headed engine now. Somebody is going to have to topple the hero off his throne Twisted Evil Laughing Razz

I'm very happy with the dyno results Very Happy Blake did a helluva job cheers

I found out how to change these from PDF to jpg so I thought I would share Wink .

These are from my final pull. I see no use in showing all pulls. The first pull was 708 hp. Blake worked his talents to get that "Snake Power" up Shocked Twisted Evil

The honest truth pound for pound I'm more impressed with the outcome of this build than my own. I'd love to see what a good alky carb would have done on this thing.

Well got the convertor, the JW wheel and educated on the install and fitment of a BBF to a glide and starter location prior to the install. I wanted to make sure when this went in it was right and not have any catatrophic problems if I didn't do my homework first study .

Found out a I needed a pilot bushing which that threw me a big curve ball....I just couldn't grasp the idea of a pilot bushing for an automatic scratch but thanks to some fine people here they made the muddy waters clear Laughing . I also found out my bell needed rubber sealing washer between it and the front pump.

My pilot bushing (a JW) needed work cause the I.D and convertor snout we're the same size. It also was a little long because it butted right up to the convertor and I had no free play. Found that out on the second go around. It took three in and outs Evil or Very Mad but I got it cheers ........... with proper convertor end play and starter engagement. Didn't have to do anything with the starter other than some measurements to determine if it would engage and it does, doesn't grind or zing sounds real good when cranking.

Couldn't have done this install without the help from my buddy Dominic and also Dale (aka quick 52) for turning down my pilot to fit.

It'll be a couple of more weeks before I light it off. More updates to follow.

Well the install is just about complete. I don't know if it's my luck or if just "thats the way it goes" when you totally change a cars set-up. I'm thinking it probly "thats the way it goes" senario. Seems like I had to reinvent the wheel on almost everything I re-installed. But what the hell thats the fun part about it right Rolling Eyes

My original fan set up wouldn't work.....didn't have clearance between the rad and new electric water pump. Not exactly sure why scratch if it was because the engine isn't sitting in the exact same location as it did with the old set up or if the electric wp is a tad longer. Radiator position didn't move and the engine location don't seem too far off. But I had to get a couple of mini-fans installed and wired. I'll concentrate on a shroud later.

Don't know if it's an optical illusion or what, the engine looks high but it isn't. It may be because of that big ass carb and Mafia intake Shocked Hope my hood fits, it should........I'm hoping Laughing if not I guess that cowl hood will get a scoop.
