Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Yeah OK, and I bet you have a 307 in a 69 Nova with a Powerglide, 3.23 gears, single 4v, that runs 9's in the quarter, through the mufflers, on street tires, with no power adders !

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

Then tell us how ! Even that kind of cr on an OHV motor would be real hard to find high enough octane to run it without it detonating itself into little pieces. Show us all the proof. Oh, by the way,...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

14 to 1 CR on a Flathead ??? Dream on pal. Show us how you did it if it's true, which it ain't. Even if you welded the combustion chamber, the valves still have to have somewhere to go at cam lift....

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

What !!!!! Unless you can machine off a good chunk from your heads, that'sthe only way to gain more compression on a Flathead. The pistons ARE what gives you the compression. And most off the shelf...

Re: Let's build a drag race 8BA engine

You can purchase a very simple main cap support from Speedway Motors, I'd also install ARP rod nutz too. Install a cam with at least 400" lift, Isky 4 00Jr. or Potvin 425 are some good choice. Ues,...
