1969 L71 427 Tripower on the dyno today. ..tested several configurations and learned some interesting things in the process. Facts trump theory and this package will make some people scratch their heads!

The guys at Metal Prep Services did an awesome job powdercoating my Chevelle frame. I highly recommend!. .now to find time to get it assembled.

This Chrysler turn signal setup needed some modification to work properly. A little bit of setup and turning in the Clausing and customer is set to go.

Doing some chamber blending on these BBC 840 heads along with some bowl work. Between the factory cuts and prior valve jobs, the seat to chamber transitions weren't conducive to better airflow.

L71 Tri Power getting setup for this 1969 435hp 427ci restoration build. Looking forward to testing this setup vs a single 4 barrel with an old Edelbrock C427X intake.

When you compare a 2.350" BBC intake valve to a 3.465" Mazda piston...

Turned up this plug from 6061 to fill speedometer gear hole in this 904 trans for a customer.

I always like to inspect oil pumps and verify the bypass operates properly, along with gear clearance. This M77 was so close it would bind up after I tightened the bolts. I had to clearance both gears for proper end play in the lathe.

This block suffered a cracked cylinder from eating a valve. So after boring it out for a .003" press fit for the grey iron sleeve, and trimming the sleeve to +.100" OAL, I pressed it in with my new installer. Them trimmed .002' off the deck to make sure it's flat. Now into the hone to finish it and touch up the other bores.

Pretending to be a Subaru mechanic the last few days on my daughter's Outback and putting the engine back in. The stumble went away once I pushed the TPS plug on the rest of the way.
This is why I'm not a mechanic...

Manley pistons and rods to go with a bore and hone for this Mazda 2.3L Turbo build a customer is putting together. It's kinda cute how tiny it is!

I rebuilt the original 352 FE 2V for this 1963.5 Galaxy 500 last year. Basically a stock rebuild with a custom set of Racetec pistons in +.020". It made 229HP thru the stock exhaust manifolds and 2" head pipes. https://youtu.be/UG5x08nLfuo

Rode down to Byron in Dad's 1928 Ford Sedan. This has a mild 360ci SBC I designed for him to run on 89 octane with Edelbrock heads I reworked, and nice Howard's Cam, along with 9.4:1 CR, and mated with a 4 speed manual OD. With the 3.08 gears it cruises at 70mph only turning 1700rpm!

Final pull of the day to back up earlier testing of the 498 project, best pull with the Quick Fuel 850 VS was 627HP @ 5900 rpm and 638lb-ft @ 4600 rpm on 93 octane 10% Ethanol BP fuel. Easily idles at 950 rpm and makes 12" of vacuum to boot!

498 BBC on the dyno today, and I think it's fair to say the owner will like the change in performance compared to how this engine performed from the previous builder. No burning oil, no overheating, no solid lifters to adjust, no pistons hitting the crank, and no rods hitting the block or oil pan! Just a nice, mild, pump gas driver!

One more HF-2400 and manifold adapters ready to head out to Ohio today. For those looking to use their Bridgeport or Vertical mill for doing head and manifold work, or if your looking for a better fixture for your surfacing machine, this is the setup to have.

Finally getting this one ready to ship back to Maui, it takes some careful packing to make everything fit!

498 project set for the dyno next week, should make decent power and have decent manners for a Pro Street style 1967 Camaro. It won't be overheating, burning 1qt of oil in 20 miles, pistons won't be hitting the crank, and rods aren't hitting the windage tray anymore. Hydraulic roller cam to replace the solid roller, and a compression increase from 8.8:1 to 10.3:1 will make a big increase in power.
Just a nice pump gas driver with good manners!

Doing some dyno prep work for the 498 project. Customers QFT 850 VS was way out of wack as is typically the case when "Tuners" have minimal understanding.
Also applying physics to IFR location on these billet metering blocks to help clean up the idle.

What's that sound? That's the engineers at Eagle telling you they don't know how to design rods with shorter bolts so they don't drag across the internal windage screen....
There's a pretty good reason I only use certain manufacturers for main components, and here's another reminder why... less headaches!

5 years ago I machined a 350 Olds for a customer who did his own assembly and installed a HFT cam, even after I advised him to go roller. Less than 2500 miles later he has a trashed piston, scored cylinders, and a crank that needs to be ground again. Still says he can't afford a roller, but is willing to risk failure again? It's not cheap to do things right the first time, but it's still cheaper than doing it cheap 2 or 3 times.

Who doesn't like leaking valve covers? Using our HF-2400 in the Bridgeport to mill these Edelbrock heads for a drain channel in an effort to reduce oil seepage around the gasket.
