Engine for Vicky ... all  fine,,, we are going to make all new headers.. the ones on her now have the look I wanted , but dont flow well for the new bigger motor,,, my motor guy is upset that I used them,, convinced they are robbing tons of HP and throttle response,,, so I guess the heck with cool looks, we will design a set of 4 into 1 collector headers, with option for removable muffler/turnouts for street use etc...

The engine for the Stude is resting well on the engine stand and waiting for it's new home... (it is the "E" motor from the Vicky)

Hope to start seeing some progress re-start on Stude this weekend,,,

Are you going to delete the drip rail ? Apparently this needs to be done an inch or two at a time; a couple of old-timers told me they did it in the '60's, all at once, and the roof warped like a potato chip.

THANKS for the info.  I did not know the drip rail could be a problem.  I plan to leave them stock initially as a reference point for the planned wind tunnel test.

If you take a look at the inside of the drip rail, you'll see that the roof itself is a stamping, and that was spot-welded to the perimeter structure & windshield frame.  Sometimes it's a little spooky to see how these things were made. Some of the factory welds on my car are things I'd be reluctant to claim as my own (I'm a beginner welder...).

John,, what type of motor mounts or motor plates are you going to use ?  Forgive me if you have told us before.

A few more pictures. The auto trans is just for setting up the driveline geometry.

John,

May I ask a silly question,,, with as much skill and talent as you and your help have, how come you did not build a complete new frame vs bracing up the weak stock frame ?

Hmm, maybe for class rules ?

Keep up the good work and the pics,  I hope to get back on track with my 53, we are doing a total new frame, not using any stock chassis parts.

John,, wow that is a whole lot of 4 link adjustment out back !!  Nice build,,, I sure hope my 53 chassis comes out as nice... I have not decided on the containment seat set up of the funny car cage adaptation to the 12 pt cage?

Keep up the good work and the pics.

FYI.... I would go with a stout SBC to start with.

I am starting out with my Radical little 255 SBC  "E" class motor....just over 500HP,,, but my engine guy feels he found another 70/80 HP with header design and some intake work.
