Contract Chris Straub. He can hook you up with a good top end kit.

Not a chance.....this happened at a bad time.
I'm actually hoping to have it back up and running by 2018...or sooner.
My wife is graduating from nursing school and as soon as she gets settled in with her new job, she said she'd help out and buy me the heads.
Maybe I can talk her into the cam as well....LOL

Oh, been in touch with Scott Foxwell, I can't wait to get this thing going.

No, going to be run on VP 110 fuel.


We're going to run the Mahle piston's with a 48 dome and I think Scott said the heads are 119cc and if I'm correct the compression is going to be close to 13.2:1.

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Update, A buddy has a 4.25" Eagle crank and 6.385" H beam Eagle rods sitting in his garage for me.



While waiting for a new motor, I got bored. I've been wanting a tubular radiator support and decided to build one since I had all the material laying around.

Here is how I laid things out:




Next I got the radiator mounted and put an "L" shaped headlight bucket support, which I made out of 1/4" steel tubing and two small weld tabs. I then made an aluminum bracket to mount to that support and bolted on the overflow can.




I'm going to try and mount the tranny cooler, in the space between the overflow can and the vertical support. I got to installed the driver side headlight bucket support and then after that, it can be un-bolted, final weld and painted.


Not bad for a cost of $0.00 for material and about three hours of work.

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Hey R/T...
I can tell you that when I weighed it, it was #3000 w/o me and I was close to #270 at that time, so #3270 when I first started things.
Since that time, I dropped to #240, I added lexan,windows, gutted some thing so the weight should have dropped but the scales said #3290 and the guy told me, do not trust this scale because it has not been calibrated in a long time.
Add #10 for my hood, we're using #3300 with me, but we know it's lighter.
Figure going to aluminum heads is going to drop me about #50 and I'm going to look around to see what else I can do to make it lighter, so if the car is actually, #3300 now, I'm hoping to get it down closer to the #3200 area or lower.
How's your car been doing?
Thanks

Re: Good but bad weekend....

With all that weight off the front. You might need to replace or cut the front springs.
Finally have my car together and running. My racing harness were delivered today. May need a new helmet. Hoping to get to the track before winter..
Installed a new hood

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Wow, that looks good.....

Quick question, do you have any issues with your front tires hitting the wheel well when you turn it hard, either way?

I got 28" M/T's on the front and just realized when I turn the wheel hard, they just nip the edge of the wheel well molding.

Pulled the rad support out last night to go get final welded and I got a weight on it, 7.4 lbs. over the factory 15.0 lbs.

I'm very happy with that result.

As for the front springs, with going to aluminum heads I figured I would need to change them. The springs I got in it now are Moog 6314 which a 289# and I have 1.5 links cut off.

I may try the Moroso trick spring or go with a Landrum front spring.

To bad you didn't live closer, I got a new set of belts I just bought in April.....LOL

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Thanks Bruce
My front tires are P205/75/15.
They measure about 27". They rub just a little on the inner fender when turning hard.
My front springs are Santhuff 200lbs.
Thanks for the offer on the belts.

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Picking up the block today, then it heads out to my buddies house to be deburred.


Since my birthday and Christmas are close together, I handed my wife a nice list of engine parts from Summit. Just a bunch of the small stuff that her and the kids can get.


Anyone out there have any experience with the Moroso oil pan 20403, and how it fits in a Camaro?

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Hey RT....how do you like those Santhuff/ Landrum #200 spring?

Are they worth the money?

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Bruce I use Stef's oil pan part# 1040 . You need to use the small block frame mounts. The pan just (and I mean just) clears the cross member . When I had the engine out I notched the cross member for better clearance.
Have not raced the car with Santhuff spring yet. But on the street.. It drives fine.
