Heading for the dyno

Got the big Cad all loaded up in the truck, taking it down to the dyno cell this afternoon. Takes a while to unload and get it all hooked up to the dyno so we'll fire it tomorrow morning. After we do a cam break-in session under load and get the carb and ignition all dialed in we'll make 5/6 pulls to see just what kind of power this thing makes.

Take into consideration that I built this engine for a 'f/glass '32 Victoria street rod, reliability and decent street manners were my main objective not just max horsepower. I'm sure it will have "enough" suds to move the car down the road. I will of course have my fingers crossed that the engines innerd's don't end up on the dyno cell floor. Hopefully I'll post good results tomorrow night.....Dave
