Re: Clay Smith cam specs

Dale,

Ah, got it. If you are set on running a Clay Smith cam, give them a ring and talk to them. It is a family run business and they'll be more than happy to talk to you about what they can...

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

Not sure you could even make the comparison between a SBF and a normally aspirated flathead. Two different animals.

Re: Clay Smith cam specs

Hi Dale:

Do you have a Clay Smith grind in mind particularly? I have the specs for a 272-2 and 284-2.

Keep in mind almost all Clay Smith cams are fairly low lift when compared to their...

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

Not sure why, but 4-71 seems to work better for the snouts are easier to come by. A 3-71 snout that works for a flathead is like hen's teeth.

How are you talking to? Why are you being so negative?

You may be interested to read about Barney Navarro's work with small displacement flatheads. He de-stroked some of his blown engines to fit into different race classes, but I believe he also...

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

Haha. Yes they do. My Smith "jiggler" suggestion was in the spirit of keeping it a flathead.

In all my travels, I only saw one pair of Smith Jigglers and it was at Hershey. It was in the...

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

In thinking of this, would a Smith-type "jiggler" head that placed the intake valve over the piston to allow for a higher lift/larger valve in order to get more air into the motor help?

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

For exactly this reason, in the 90's someone sold alky-only racing heads that had no water outlets or jackets. They were a billet slab and the customer could choose their own compression ratio. ...

Re: Roadster Windshield Pivots Not Holding.

Not on a '36, but on a Model A I've used cut pieces of tin foil and/or baseball bat tape on the pivots to help build up that space or give it a little grip. It doesn't need much.

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

Pete,

How much of jump does that 10% represent in your typical race motors? Are we talking another 20-30 hp just from fuel & tune?

Re: Off shore adjustable lifters

Interesting observation. I didn't notice that, but as an elementary educator I read poorly written stuff all day long, so I just read it like it should read. LOL!

Re: Should I be concerned?

Great! As someone said, no way you could build it for that and seems fair for all that was done to it. Drive it and enjoy it.

I'm with you on this, Tony. Those numbers seem really optimistic. There is book written by George Nichols (I believe) and he uses a similar dyno program. Every cam he put into the program had...
