Yessssss. You have to get that motor running soon
spring is on the way.
From the picture it looks like a mechanical set up.
Any thoughts of running on the street or just the strip.
Laddy, It should be running in a couple weeks. I am waiting for a custom made aluminum fuel cell that will be fed from the cell in the trunk and then return back to the rear cell. I have to get it anodized because I am running methonal. YES this will be driven on the street on a limited basis but mainley at the track,also yes it is a mechanical injection. Brian
Glad to hear you will be up and running in a couple of weeks.
I thinks its awesome that your machine can handle the strip as well as the street.
Whats the deal with the anodized tank?
I'm sure that it has something to do with the methonal.
All I know is that you need twice as much methonal than gas.
And now I understand what you said limited street.
That could get mighty expensive.
This car is 100% street legal and the reason for getting the cell anodized is because of the methonal is corrosive. Actually the methonal usage is 1.4 times the amount of racing fuel and the engine runs cooler. I would be paying over $9.00 for a gallon of good racing gas. I just bought methonal for under $3.00 per gallon and get much better performance you just have to know how to tune it. Brian
Thanks for the info.
I thought the methonal was more than
$3.00 per gallon is'nt that bad.
Good luck with the new tank and getting her fired up soon.
Keep us posted.
You gott'a love the way mechanical injection looks, espcially with the stacks coming out of the hood. I'm running a mechanical Hilborn set up on my engine, love the way it performs but it is a little different...
We took some video shots of it the first summer we had it running (2009) and my son edited them together into a kind of cool little clip. Most of it was shot at the 1/8 mile track in Sturgis, SD and a little of it at the Gasser Reunion in Thompson, OH. It shows some 7.60 1/8 mile passes but we have made some changes (different cam and some valve train work) and it was running 7.30's last summer. Anyway, it isn't the greatest but it will give you a taste...
