Good Luck.

Hey BJ,
All these parts are used, in fact the crank is -.020 rods and -.010 mains and #5 and #6 rods have 1/2" 12 point bolt heads while the other 6 have 7/16". i've already got it together, waiting on heads to come back from valve job. Should be installed by friday or sat.
The only thing new is rings and bearings, plus some bolt ons. This motor once went 7.90 in a dragster on alcohol some time ago. like i said this is a tossed together motor (balanced ofcourse) just to make the super Chevy show in Baton Rouge Feb 22nd.

Zip.
ohh..ok..i sort of thought that..still gonna run like a scalded dog..i love my(little/Big block ) 511 ci...

Up date,

I wasn't at the track last sunday but the car went 1st. 10.67,2nd10.63,[email protected] 124.65, spitting and sputtering down the whole qtr. i'm told.
He didn't put new plugs in it, just ran the plugs that came in the milk crates with all the mixed up parts.
I'll be back in town before the weekend, and i'm gonna put a little tune on the motor. It looks like it is gonna run low 10's. Also the best 60 ft. was 1.43. He forgot to bring chips to the track and was leaving at 3600.

I guess not bad for a 2 milk crate motor of mixed up parts and 3700lb car with driver.

I'll post ET slips when i get back in town. Also i'll tell you what/how i built the motor.


Zip.

PS, This was the first time driving the car for him.

great times especcially for the first runs down the track with a new motor. is he trying to build a braket car for 10.00? it sounds like it should do low 10s after more tuning, good work.

Have not weighed the car, it might be heaver i was guessing, weather permitting we're going this sunday, and we'll weigh it then, plus it will get some tuning. It has no diet, only alum in backhalf and 4 link 9" and glass hood.
