Did my first powder coat job! Did timing cover in dark translucent blue over a silver base. For my first job it came out AWESOME! I can't believe how easy!!!
Then yesterday my daughter and I cut out and fit the Lexan windshield. Now to notch it and form a doghouse to install.
I mocked up the short block with a freshly ported and polished Eddy Vic Jr and installed a 726 lift cam to check clearances and no problem! I ordered my new Lunati solid roller
gross lift 796/803
adv dur 326/334
lash .024/.026 hot
RPM range 4800-8200
I have to go longer on the pushrods to get my geometry that I want. Running Crane Gold Wide Body 1.73 roller rockers and Crane roller lifters. REMEMBER, I also had roller cam bearings installed. Jomar rocker stud girdles to stiffen it up.
Installed my crank trigger magnet wheel on back side of steel blower pulley hub. Couldn't get a crank trigger for a blower set up without going with the good ones from RCI. I found Aerospace had a flying magnet kit for BBC with roots style blower but holes DID NOT match up.... with a little careful "hand held" machining I got it to fit. I installed it when I checked the cam and run-out was LESS than .004. The recommended gap is between .060-.080. That gives me .020 to play with so my .004 run-out will be fine! I can also mount the data logger pickup on the other side and use the same wheel... DOUBLE DUTY!
Doing oil pan tomorrow and mounting pump, dizzy shaft, pickup and pan. Flex plate and tapping out soft plug holes.....
Will post updated pics asap..... I am starting to post my extras in the auction block so keep looking for more stuff...
Listed 10gal fuel cell and tall alum valve covers today. Have new Malory Unilite dizzy, intake, carbs, air cleaners, main girdle and stud girdle, roller cams, roller lifters and roller rockers and many other parts that I will be listing over next few weeks so keep looking back. Will try and give heads up on here when posting parts. Also selling my block and heads that I pulled out.
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!!!!
