Selling the Monaro has come up at my place once or twice
Although I'm fairly confidant there would not be much left for lakesters

I've got two guitars on the block and the B will likely be in somebody else's garage by the time the Midget sees salt again.

NOT the Monaro Mate, they didn't make enough of them. I had an HG-350 when I was in Sydney & should never have sold it. Now my 70 Challengers don't blow my skirt up any more, they're just money.

Keep the B, finish and sell the Widow Maker, er, FrankenSprite . . . . . .

Getting rid of some of my toys too.    Need to get the Honda into the garage and make room for home upgrade projects.

It'll be the streamliner that will likely make the trip to Gairdner not the tank. Amongst others down there I also had a copper-bronze 68 Javelin 343-sst, I think it was production number 11 & it went to Adelaide or Perth when I sold it.

So, I've spoken to Mark Shifflert  GForce gearbox guy and he can help us out.
I'm looking at
1st   1.985
2nd  1.533
3rd   1.195
4th   1.000
 which is prety much what Andy is running in his tank
Now we just need some word from Andy on the shorty conversion
and some word from Fordboy to make sure I have picked the right ratios before I've Dyno'ed the motor
I need to sort out a gearshift and we have had a very generous donation or loan of a clutch and flywheel
We might have to find some money to bring it to Bonneville, providing I'm still allowed entry to the USA

Word on the street was that the motor made ~440hp @ 6400rpm running like a pig (Kenny's words) at Duttweiler's.That is all the power we ever hoped for......running well and with another few thousand revs KD thinks it would be good for another 80.....howevs, my hunch is we want to gear it to be at or near the top of out elected rev range at the target speed, for now that is 240mph

Our real decision is diff ratio There is a reluctance to run the motor out to the redline amongst some in the camp here so the 3.08 isn't being considered, next we have the 2.73 which would be my choice, next to that is the 2.56. As we go down the rev drop widens and the available power lessens. In the interests of peace in the camp it is most likely we will start with the 2.56 and have the 2.73 sitting ready just in case.

There is of course the option of running it in 3rd gear......that'd save taking the 2.14 out of it..... rolleyes

Sounds like you're heading in the right direction to me.   cheers

Details on the clutch and flywheel?

You're thinking on bringing it to Bonneville when people are headed your way looking for good salt.   huh

How about pictures of Dan Warner after a few Tim Tam Slams at the DLRA Club Auction on whatever night it is after he meets Mr Animal in his auction gear

 
(My advice for DW, don't go to the auction)
