Milwaukee's finest, cutting edge flat head incorporating a plastic toothed governor..........I took the head off, turned it over, the valves seemed to work fine but I could help but notice the significant dwell-time of the piston.

How elegantly stated.  Did you, in a previous incarnation, perhaps write ad copy? rolleyes

Why, do you commonly find an undamaged rod bolt hiding in the corner of the crankcase?

My diagnosis was that someone put a piston in it and didn't do one of the rod bolts up properly, it came out and it all went downhill from there. Thing is, with a mulcher they regularly stop in a hurry after some sort of clattering crunching racket.....

This is my first time, between posting cats and hikers on Facebook,

to have read 4 or 5 pages in one sitting. My reading retention has

slipped drastically. I understood the works related to Greek couplers

because they were used in several different applications in Treit's

streamliner. Other than varied separations of the floor boards

none of it made sense. So I'll check out  and go back to converting

Kepner's drag race info from MPH to Metrics Per Hour. I'm secure

doing that because few of the readers, on the Green side, take the

time to check the math. If I error it is always to make the metric

number slightly larger than the conversion factor generates. The

only problem is that the car can never achieve the same number

that I present when it goes to their racing venue. 

This is my contribution to a already confused situation.

That was the most sensible thing anyone has posted here for some time.

So, the Chev, it turns out is a little longer than the Buick because of the front set arrangement and dry sump pump. So we'd like to find some room, the Greek coupler will give us that. We need a new bellhousing, and flywheel. A lakewood will take care of the bellhousing and scattershield requirements.

We need to get the motor up to our dyno guy where we'll get going on the program to get it and the engine management happening...

I have to do some slight changes to the frame.

I have to mount the engine plate....

there you have it. Now, back to the cats and flowers Freud.

If it's going to Kentucky or Colorado or anywhere else here in Usa, I'll spring for the couplers & the freight to there.

Like wise with the scatter shield.  

The scatter shield with the block plate bolted to it might make a good shipping container.

Would the couplers fit inside?

What's Johnboy shipping?

I reckon best if it all goes to Johnboy's, they were sending the beer machine to Sydney in June or July, we can get it put on a truck from there. Even a rough estimate on 60lbs 15x15x10 inch us to Aus was over $350USD from USPS...

Grumm, are you still  breathing?
