i went to hot rod reunion last year at Famoso last year in October for the first time. i have been to a few March Meets.  I like March Meet for amount of cars but i think the Hot Rod Reunion is better from aspect of seeing old cackle cars, prob more older drivers, and i think better car show too.  at HRR i have heard cackle cars from start to finish line but last year was minimal.    everyone leaves after the races but its worth it to see them push start the cars down the return road and line up on the track.  id like to see it again.  these are the only two i have seen/been to.

Could you plunk a head and valve cover on it and show a pic of what it will look like please?

i think those pics are still at manufacture's place.  but i bet when he gets it and wipes his 'mess' off it he will put some up.  gonna have to get him a box of tissue.  he'll have it polished up quickly haha.

watch the dates on the helmets.  not sure what spec is out but as an example an SA2010 is good for 12 years i think.  so 2022  you will have to buy a new one.

Spud Miller's Cave / Re: an fitting/bung size for main fuel line
« on: January 20, 2018, 02:39:44 PM »
so, looking at main feed fuel line and male bung ID.  my main feed is 1" ID tubing.  i purchased a -16 male bung to weld to the 1" ID alum tubing. the bung ID is shy of .875 (more like .801) .  the -16AN male bung ID is not 1" ID even though -16an is 1" ID.     surface area is .785 for 1" and .500 for -16 male bung i purchased.  that's a 36% reduction in fuel flow between the two based on surface area. 

my concern is flow, were not gonna make that much hp. prob 1300 max.  will the .801 ID bung support that?  im thinking about getting -20 bung as it would be 1" ID based on the -16 bung i purchased being shy of 7/8".

Ive known Steve for 37 yrs...   the RED is for sale, it has pauter big block in it.  he might sell without if interested.  Bill Comstock built his FED (and mine), if you want to talk to Bill, i can get you his information. 

i dont know of any for sale in the vw world.   wouldnt take much to mod one for vw.  its just about making it so the engine can fit in the chassis and pass tech.

« on: November 21, 2017, 10:06:34 AM »
i ordered convertor today.  gave him all the specs of motor, car, etc.  in conversation told him shift at 7k so he said stall about 5800-6000 and have about 800 rpm drop on shift.   i asked about leaving at low rpm and mentioned situations like yours Paul where having to leave low rpm etc to not shock the tires and such.   

it seems like convertor characteristics are black magic.   ill go with whatever i get and if its not correct ill send it back and try something different.  its just tough not having ever been down the road what is correct.  i understand there is/will be changes and not everything is exact which is no big deal.  i just like to know as much as i can to make good decisions if possible.

one thing i wanted was a bolt together convertor for two reasons.  one if there is trans problem i can clean out at home and not have to send back/forth etc and deal with shipping and down time. and second is i will run 2 dif classes (not at same race).. run with the nor cal nostalgia guys and 7.0 so i will have a stator for each and just a simple swap out. 

btw, if anyone needs trans or convertor BTE trans has 20 percent off on friday; you can pre-order via phone now.

thank you

thank you for your reply.   i was/am going to get one from BTE as they have 20% off on black friday.  i got my top sportsman trans from them last year.   i would use A1 as i have few friends that have used them with great success.  trying to save a few bucks might not be the best way to make the decision but need so save some bucks somewhere as it all adds up.

anyways, was just curious on what is typical for blown big block setup.   id imagine small block guys prob launch at higher rpm then a blown big block setup. 

i just wanted to have some info prior to ordering so i know if they are talking BS whomever the torque convertor manufacture is.   just trying ot be little educated to help with decisions.


Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / torque convertor and blower
« on: November 14, 2017, 08:45:27 PM »
getting ready to buy a torque convertor.   running a blown 426 in NE1/7.0 pro

question is, with a blower i have been told that i would leave off idle since the motor/blower will be instant torque?  is that true? 

or, would you leave at 'x' rpm thats below peak torque (guess)? 

leaving of idle with blower setup wont shock tires as bad?

so, leave off idle (assuming 2k idle, which is a guess) and if the case you would just stage the fed, hit trans brake to hold in place then just release and mash gas pedal or hold brake and mash gas pedal?  if idle is 2k, then torque convertor would be built for 2500 or 3000 or ?

just looking for some input as i have no clue
