Glad to help ! I got to thinking ( terrible thing ) its kinda selfish to keep these old engines sitting on the engine stand ,they were made to run so lets run em!
I will get your ignition system built and out to ya as well as my oil priming tool .
Let me know when need anything else. Me and the boys can ride over your way for the firing up party if you need some help. Got to hear this one run.

Never replied before, but your emails from all you guys inspire me, as I work on my new (old) D/SR here in Kansas City....in the middle of a good 'ole midwestern winter.  I am just the opposite of you, began building my 27 Highboy in '81 for the street, but spent time at B'ville in the '70's...when I worked for Holley....thought they was all nuts!  Now I guess I'm nuts too.  Mine is Car 778 (number to be confirmed) and its Hugger Orange running a Boss 302.  Building it by myself in my small 2 car garage......Good Luck to you guys, I'll see you at the Salt for a week of fun.  Give me your address, and when I come through Indy, I'll stop by.....Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the invite!  Tonight, I am pulling my custom built independent suspension out of my former street rod and picked up my narrowed (53") 9" Ford axle out of a totally wasted 81 Ford Pick-Up at Pick a Part here in Kansas City.  Hopefully, I will have it in by this weekend with the exception of the final welding on the traction bars.  I am using a Panhard Bar in the rear.  Next to finish up my "all-in-one" push bar/chute anchor/chute pack bar (totally adjustable by the way) that goes up and over the rear lower deck of my '27 Ford Roadster.  Last time I was at the Brickyard was with Jim Wheeler, who owns Powerdyne Centrifical Superchargers.  He was brought up around Indy Cars, and is Joey "JR" Granatelli's God Father.  He also owns a couple of the Indy Roadsters on display in the museum....was a great time seeing the cars and history at the museum!  Well, back to the roadster.  After the push bar final fit, on to the Boss 302.....maybe I should switch to a GMC 302.  A friend of mine has one in a HAMB Dragster that he is just finishing up, with all the best parts, like yours.

Thanks Again!  Have a Great Day!

I'm ashamed of taking so long to build my project. I want some of the drugs you take so I can have that much energy. Seriously, the car looks good and I'd be really interested to know how it runs.

Another Kansas City, 302 Jimmy builder here. This one is going in a HAMB dragster.

321 cid, 12:1 CR, 8.111 c-c rods, JE pistons, Dema Elgin cam, self built aluminum roller rocker assembly, self built 3 x 2 Intake with Rochester 2GC carbs. Not sure what the header will be but will test several on the engine dyno at K&M Machine Shop in Raytown. Fortunately I have lots of time available on the dyno since I dyno and tune all their engines.

It's been killing me not knowing how far you've gotten in the last few weeks.

Your fans demand an update!
