boothboy Excellent picture! That is the 1959/60 Lujie Lesovsky Indy Roadster. That lay down engine is a reworked Offy. The idea was less wind resistance The driver, Johnny Thomson, had a special seat that pretty much let him lay back in almost a horizontal position. He ended up 17th.

Galaxie65 Lots of cool tri-power stuff, very cool.

I just had a call from my builder saying he ran my engine on a stand today! He said everything looked and sounded great. He has a couple details to go over yet, then will run it on the dyno on Monday and deliver on Tuesday.

This has been coming together for about a year now as I was able to buy a crank here and pistons there etc so you can imagine I'm a happy camper right about now

The local drag strips checked mine - for cross bolts and did CID bubble just to make sure I hadn't switched engines since I was running better then the one track's B stock record and just a tad slower then the NHRA record. Luckily, they never did check the camshaft

It wasn't lie if you didn't know better. Virtually anything you read says that '63 406 blocks has cross bolted mains ----- unless you had one that didn't and knew better
