Go for it, I have been beat up the hill before. But I have won a few times also. I will give it ever thing I got but, if some one else wins that is ok.

The first time I ran a race with a old dirt track car, I was 18 I came in second. I was mad at myself, I though I should have beat that old man with a 51 Plymouth. But he won fair and square.

well, its always better to be beat up the hill, than down the hill
seriously though I wish I could get a hold of one of these cranks without dropping a couple bucks on it.... Its just that my interest has been sparked, and I have high hopes it could work out...

Well I got a new cam for this engine. Of course it has to be made to fit. Shorten. and put a drive gear for the oil pump in the middle of cam. Also machine off the extra lobs. For got to take pictures, maybe tomorrow.

Also made a adapter to run a dist off the front but, pointing up like on a flathead Ford V8. That improved how it ran. It has a vacuum and mechanical advance.

I did have it running real good, so decided to put in a better cam.
