06-08-2016 09:38 PM The Delco wouldn't preform as advertised.
My new found engineer buddy may have a good plan. but you can't buy the parts from the old days-I guess. The test was a sucess as the battery cut off killed the engine, as NHRA mandates.
But the charge wasn't happening. So I'm going to the old Ford 1979 alt. with external regularor. I know that works, I've used it before. He tells me it's ineffecient , but with that e303 cam- what kind of gas mileage can I expect?
I'll try to post some small pics-- looks like something has been hacked though.

05-19-2016 05:37 PM some good, some bad
first trip to the track 2016, netted great results.
13.87 @ 98mph/14.1 @ 98mph/ 14.2 @96mph.
two more runs I fouled up the shifts. Thats fastest and quickest I've run in a cage.
I doubt theres too much left, couple things to try.
I'll replace weight and spring in governor, to shift @ higher rpm and forced air induction.
I'm fine with 13.8, in cool weather, if you take out all the mistakes, I don't have that much tied up in this car.
The bad hit this morning, alternator went out. Thats the fancy dan $$$$ 100 amp lump, I thought
would last a few years. I'm tired of paying some one else to rebuild these things- time to learn it.
That 13.8 was up against a new Mustang, he ran a 13.5, launched better than me but didn't run away.
The 14.1 was up against a texting kid with a new small foreign suv, he got out in front when mine stumbled at the line, cought him at half track never saw him again. Wonder what his buddies said?

04-19-2016 12:32 PM The Griffin rad seems to work fine
Along with my rebuilt factory fan, in 89* stop and go traffic, we barely got above 180*. I'd drive it to work every day in the summer, luckily I'm retired.
The AFCO rad probably would have done the trick, but moved forward 3 inches it was an inch too tall. Had to eliminate the hood latch.
The guy who welded that radiator is an artist-show quality.
