Looking good Mate! Show time is coming up in a hurry now & you're probably going to be running it down to the wire.

Wow, early hemi and a torqueflite.  You'll have to let me know how the torqueflite does.  I'm going to be running one in my project with a Polyspherical.  I've been concerned with it sucking up too much power.
Hi Ben,
My block is a '55 331 Poly and my plan is to eventually run the 727 Torqueflite direct driven (no converter).
I have made up all of the parts required for this but will run the converter set up to sort the car out first.
Will keep you posted on my progress with the transmission conversion.

Well, since it's a small block, you could use one of the later torqueflites with a lockup converter.  Torque converter lock up on those iterations of the 727 is handled hydraulicly not electrically so there isn't much of a penalty in complexity for going with one.  These were put into rams with the magnum v8 in the 90's.  I'm seriously considering one for my setup but then I have to adapt the push button shifter to it... because, who wants to give up push button!

I never did understand why Castlemain 4X came out of Brizzy. Coopers was my choice when I live in Oz but it started turning me into a fat guy. rolleyes Moving to the US might have saved me.
There's a lot of people up here wishing we had the salt that you have, me included. I was an early DLRA member before Gairdner was active & moved up here for Bonneville. Now I might be on the wrong end of the world again. sad
