Matt Shaff's Engine Shop / SBC blower intake
« on: June 11, 2018, 04:58:34 AM »
A friend of mine is looking to buy a SBC blower intake with burst panel.
Is there one with longer runners to keep fuel distribution more even?

Spud Miller's Cave / Enderle fuel pumps
« on: October 04, 2017, 07:02:38 AM »
Hi Spud !!!!!
My present fuel pump is a Enderle 110 vane style. 12.4 gpm
I have a Enderle SG810 (110 equivalent) 13gpm spur gear style that I would like to run on the race car.
I know I have to account for the larger GPM in the tune questions are:
Does the gear pump move fuel at a different rate thru out the rpm I need to worry about that? and the pressures that may come along with that?
Does the gear pump "suck" better......maybe less susceptible to the air bubble when hitting the chutes?
Thoughts on each ?
Thanks again for all you do !!!

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / Turbo 350
« on: September 04, 2017, 01:20:50 PM »
Hi Dan....I have a friend that has a turbo 350 in a street car that is upshifting, under normal driving, way too soon.
What do we adjust?  Govenor springs or weights?

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / 67 Chevy powerglide question
« on: January 26, 2017, 06:44:36 PM »
Hi Dan.....we are going to swap the powerglide out of a 67 Chevy wagon with a 307 2 barrel......with a turbo 350 from a 36 Chevy streetrod. It has a 350 4barrell. He thinks it has a aftermarket converter. So......before we get into this I would like to know if we can swap input shafts to keep the stock converter in the wagon?
Thanks !!!!

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / Powerglide fluid leak
« on: September 05, 2016, 08:00:33 AM »
NOT mine !!!!!  lol
A friend's race PG leaks at the pump area. Not when it is running...after it has set for a day. I mentioned about the pump bolts you seal just to be sure...but they were dry. Around the pump looked dry.
The engine has been line bored a couple of times...could the convertor be too high from the crank moving up in the block and cause the leak? It wasn't moved up enough to cause any gear drive it can't be up much.
So our question is....could the convertor seal leak at rest and not when running?  Could the outside pump o-ring leak only at rest?
Happy Holiday !!!!

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / Turbo 400 problem
« on: February 22, 2016, 02:50:16 PM »
Hi Dan ...asking for anew friend in LHC. He has a Studebaker with a Turbo 400. Trans worked good when he parked it. Now it only has 1st and second gear. He added fluid...he took the govenor out and checked it OK...replaced the modulator. Removed the valve body and checked what he could, and nothing was stuck. He owned a garage in Wisconsin so he is handy!
Any ideas as to what to look for?

Spud Miller's Cave / Blower / fuel at idle
« on: January 16, 2016, 02:38:12 PM »
Hi Spud.....I have an issue LOL...
Switched my 496 Arias Hemi from a 14/71 std helix (well worn in) to a fresh 16/71 HH retro set back to account for the front cut out. I was running the std. 14/71 at 15 to 20 % OD to make approx. 17 lbs. of boost to go 7.0.  My 14/71 std moved 500  You don't list a 16 on your chart but it looks like each inch of rotor adds about 32 I think my 16/71 should make 632. Now to get the new blower to move the same amount of air my old one did at 15% over....I started out with it 15% under.  Hopefully so far so good.

I started the engine and cyl #1 is VERY rich and # two is a close second (90-120 degrees). The other 6 are rich but OK (220-300 deg). It seems to clear up if I rev it.  I had the hat nozzles big in front and smaller to the rear....I switched them, front to back, and didn't make any difference.
I leaned the barrell valve A LOT and it helped. I checked the port poppet and it was at 15lbs. I changed the MSD 20 ignition change. I ohm the wires and all are good. Leaked to barrell valve to get back to my starting point and the problem is back. I opened up the Shotgun blades from .014 to .019 to make sure they weren't getting sucked closed. Just made the idle higher.

So why are the front cylinders so rich? Do I have the blower spinning too slow at idle?  Maybe does not move as much air as I thought?  Too much fuel and not enough air......but I'm not sure why.

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / leaking sealat shift shaft
« on: December 13, 2015, 02:58:33 PM »
Hi Dan.......I'm asking this here because it may help someone else.
That shifter seal is still leaking in my trans. I have replaced it twice. Only leaks when fluid gets above the shaft. they make a "dual" seal or better quality? How about a speedi sleeve? I might be able to machine a thin sleeve for the shaft or maybe a o-ring? 
It never leaked until Hughes rebuilt it, so I'm at a loss as to what is going on.....
Merry Christmas

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / Leaking powerglide pan
« on: May 11, 2015, 03:31:11 AM »
OK Dan....what is your way of getting the gasket area of the pan to NOT leak when the car has not been started in awhile and the convertor oil gets above the gasket surface. ie. without having to chisel the pan off later !!!! lol
It is a cast aluminum pan...strong and flat. Not sure what is on it now. Hughes Performance went thru it for me in Phoenix and whatever they do ain't getting it done. (but the trans works perfect)
