Hi guys I won a Wally this past weekend with my 87 Mustang with a worn out 460, 2nd round on never changed the dial or anything. The car was hurt but I never let on to anyone and I mean anyone.
But it never let me down. This was just a cool deal and about time this year I started driving :)

Here is the run
ME Dial 12.03 RT .007 Ran 12.059
Him Dial 11.93 RT .032 Ran 11.932

made sure not to take to much stripe :)

just a stock crank it was already bad but I think it's real bad now, I should have it out Sat I hope, if I have to I'm just going to toss some bearings in it for a few weeks...

What's great about this motor is it run's these numbers never reving over 5000 rpms and only take off around 1800 rpms.


Last weekend got about 25 runs on the good old girl. so so far this year I'm up to about 70 runs and last year I got in about 300 run.


Before anyone tells me I should of fixed it over the winter :) my new car had a problem so I put this car back together in one day lol so not bad... only if I had a real motor ;)

I've got a couple internal cranks out in the shop.PM me your # if you're interested.

Thanks Russ but after looking it over I think it's time for a full rebuild or a short block.

you don't happen to have a short block or pistons and a crank.

I think the old motor is just blowing by so much is the problem, I think it has in the range of 700 runs on the motor.

well got a motor from a dragster racer for the car, just need to get it in there.

So I raced the old motor still and keeping my fingers crossed.

Lost in the finals to a Ford :) my right foot desided to do it's own thing on the line.

but not bad 2 finals in 3 races with the old motor.

dialed a 12.13 and ran a 12.130 in the final but the light killed me .075
semi dialed a 12.13 ran a 12.138 I think with a I think .015 light.

the car was so on Sunday I didn't change my dial until the semi's I went from a 12.14 to a 12.13

my 4th and 5th runs were right on to the 1000 ft mark my .001 every timing mark, not bad for a bunch of stuff tossed together :)
