Chuck I just checked mine and they are a little off from your measurements . Not by much but different . My bolt pattern is a spread port 15 - 18 degree head .

Bill, Thanks for checking! I'll go with the pieces that I have. Will keep you posted.

Cathy and I just got back from a dyno session. We're real happy with the power. We left the session with 80 hp more than we arrived with. Special thanks to Frank Iaconio and Frankie Jr for their help. They said that they have not seen a 23 degree head make that much power before and left us with a few ideas and things to tweak on. Here's a video of the last pull when we were a bit "over center" on the timing...

That's cool !!
Driving a Front Engine Dragster builds character and keeps you awake for a 1/4 mile at a time.

Been in that room a time or two my self ! Frank is one of those guy's who just knows how to make horse power with any thing from a small block to Pro Stock ! Just curious did you guys talk about enclosing your cam tunnel ? We did it with one of Billys motors and I know a couple of other comp guys that have done it .

We believe so...TB solenoid was releasing inconsistently.  Trans is out for a freshen-up now.

Would be cool to get all the cars in the same place at the same event next season!

I think, in general, there are a few things I need to do with my oiling system. Keeping the oil away from where is doesn't need to be is certainly one of them. Another is pressure. I just have way too much.
Hanging out with Frank for a couple days was really cool. Growing up I used to watch him battle Glidden, WJ, Grump and Shepherd for all of those championships. He's a living legend...and man does he know how to run a dyno!
