Yep....the money train came and went but didn't leave nearly enough for me. Guess I'll just have to wait for the next one.Angela Desmond said:If it's running in a month, it will still be up before mine...Funny how a lack of funds slow these projects down :crying2:
Hey Brett!!EGLuder said:hey guys,
i've been checking out the board for a while now and finally decided to register, as there appears to be some very knowledgable and experienced people on here. i have a '75 500 i'm planning on building once the year rolls around, not sure of the chassis yet but i've already purchased the edelbrock manifold and a set of 76cc heads to workover.
lux, what are the specs for the cam you decided to use? how high do you plan on spinning it?
i appreciate the offer, i'll have to get in touch with you when i get ready to order. one thing i've discovered is that coincidentally jerry potters shop is also here in Chattanooga. i've been reading on the MTS forum for a while and i've heard a lot of good things about him and his work with the 500/472s.lux hauler said:Hey Brett!!
The motor will probably not spin any faster than 4500 rpm's. That may even be a little extreme. It'll probably be out of power by the time it hits 4500.
As far as the cam specs.....
If you're interested, I can put you in touch with someone that's supposed to have some pretty good cam grinds.
No, I sure don't.EGLuder said:i appreciate the offer, i'll have to get in touch with you when i get ready to order. one thing i've discovered is that coincidentally jerry potters shop is also here in Chattanooga. i've been reading on the MTS forum for a while and i've heard a lot of good things about him and his work with the 500/472s.
would you happen to know the quench distance with the head and piston setup you're using?
The pistons are KB hyperutectics.Angela Desmond said:Just curious Lux, what's the fit problem with the pistons? And what kind of pistons are you using?
Yeah......I'm using the stock rods but I wish I had gone with the Olds rods.Angela Desmond said:How's that for a near heart attack!! All's well that ends well. :littlewes I missed what you said you're using for rods.Did you go with the originals and have them re-conned?You're gonna have a sweet engine when this is all done
