Anyone running early olds engined feds?
« on: October 13, 2017, 10:46:42 PM »
I stumbled into a girdled 303 olds long block punched .155 over and running heavily ported 394 heads. It is around 7.5 to 1 and has a moon timing cover with no provision for water pump and a hole for hilborn pump. No history on it, but i got it from the liquidation auction of Jim Greens speed shop, and i'm still trying to see if i can find some more info. I think this might be a fun to build into a little early 1960's style rail

Anyway are there any other rocket guys on here? Anyone running small cube rockets?

My car had a gene Adams olds motor in it before I got it. The previous owner was lacking in skil/intelligence/ and money and blew it up twice then sold the car to me. Call gene, he is a wealth of knowledge.
