After reading IO's info it got me to thinking about going to a "radiator in a box" system as I believe that it is important to have a pressurized cooling system. I dug through some of my stuff and I found a nice Harrison liquid/air heat exchanger that I have had for quite a while, years ago I put some -10 AN fitting on it and it is just the right size to fit into our existing 12 inch dia tank. Another thing to get done before Bonneville! but probably a good idea. If I do it this year I will post some pics.

Other stuff done this weekend: mods to the oiling system.

There's a hole in the primary cavity that transfer lubricant back to the sump:

Blocked it with a screw.

I transfered that level to the primary cover for a new level plug::

No breathers left for gearbox and clutch cavities after all the welding, so install a new fitting on top of the box for a breather pipe:

Since the bottom of the box is much higher than the botton of the clutch, design of a transfer system between them, using centrifugal and gravity forces: little dam  with hole behind to collect ATF from clutch cavity and to transfer it to the box:

Also drilled big breather hole in between both cavities:

So the box will fill with ATF from the clutch, so new hole down to limit level in box and diminish ATF volume:

In the timing cover, there were just 2 little holes to drain it into the sump, same, increased hole size to speed up drainage.

So long...

Thanks PP.

Its going to be a long journey; with all the help and advise on the forum it has been a positive one so far. I am looking forward to SW2019 and being at Bonneville again and adding to my knowledge. Its a long Rookie road, thats for sure.

I found a photo of the original blower idler.  It was a compact system that fit well but was definitely too close to the crankshaft pulley.

Mike, there is no ahead or behind in building LSR special construction cars... or any LSR car for that matter.... I should be building faster... but I'm not.... there is almost as much inspiration as perspiration in one of these, got to do it as you envision it.

So I grabbed one of my junk motors... threw a head on it and started figuring out how I will install motors in this car.  I really wanted to do a cartridge type system in this car... kinda like the Speed Demon but all the motors I might use are not the same basic design... but I think I can do something like the old car... basically put some bolt blocks in and them build motor mounts to fit as required. 
The old car was based on the blocks we welded in back in 1984 to mount the 1983 Honda Interceptor bike inside the car... we continued to use part of that Honda frame with our Kawasaki motors all the way into early 2002 when we converted to Suzuki motors.
I have a few ideas I will explore...  cheers
