1971BB427 Got my wrinkle walls out and screwed the beads so they're ready to put on the Falcon for the pre '64 drags this Sunday at Toutle, Wa. We're heading up Sat. and will camp out at the track. Sunday is the event, and expect 100+ cars to attend and race. Fun event, and make as many passes as you can fit into a day!

Hopefully the Eagles will hook better than the Hurst pie crusts did last year! The Hurst are so hard the Falcon spun them the length of the 1/8th mile. Starting out at 20 psi, and I'll lower them down until they bite well. I've got some old skinny tires/wheels to hang on the rear for towing the car, so I don't have to tow it with the slicks on it.

. At least they grabbed a proper distributor...! ... Thinking about going GM HEI on my '78 Ford F150 351M/400... my '86 Monte Carlo usually started so quick never heard the starter crank it over hot or cold... but with this Ford Duraspark it always has to crank over several times before there is any sign of life to it... gotta be harder on the starter... plus, while it's cranking, I'm always wondering if it's going to come alive... often a minor problem somewhere in all the scattered ignition parts and/or connections...

BuzzLOL . Yes, late Chevy sixes have much more interchangeability with the SBC V8's... but might be able to fake an early valve cover onto a later engine for 'the look'...

. Always wondered, how do they get oil up into the top/rocker arms of the splash lube sixes?

. I knew Chevy's were always advanced OHV, no flatheads, but shocked to learn they didn't get an oil pump till part of '53...

I don't claim to be an expert on the subject, but AFAIK, there is very little interchangeability between the early (216/235) and late (194/230/250/292) Chevy sixes

I really doubt you would be satisfied with it. If I know you, it needs to be able to run the highway at 65-70 without burning up. No matter how fresh, it is still obsolete technoligy.

I am not sure if that can be done. 53 may have been a transition year. I just know they use a valve cover like a 48-52 even though they are full oil pressure. The straight shift in 53 was still a splash lube even though the Powerglide was full oil pressure.

Whether or not the 53 head will fit a later model block or not, I just don't know.

Brian, you need to check out the cars for sale on the H.A.M.B. and take a look at Marge's long lost sister. After seeing the asking price for her, you'll have a whole new appreciation of Marge. I agree with you on the Fairlane. I'd love to own one like it. What a fun driver it would be. Keith

Helped load the complete drive line out of the convertible and the eng/trans out of the hard top and they are on their way to the Chicago area. I hope they live on in some form or other in the future,

The gentleman who bought them is restoring a 51 Convertible and wants a full oil pressure engine with a powerglide that has kick down and a 3:55 rear. He wants the engine bay to look original so this should be perfect for him. Late model mechanics with early style head and valve cover. Gosh, I hope it works out well for him.

Yeah, It just took a tree and a power pull down about 1/2 mile from the house.

Be safe.

Front bumper is at Airline Plating being chromed and then I'm gonna stop $$$$$$ for a while.
