327 (four bolt main) aren't they all, I saw someone post lol
full manual TH350 2500 stall
4.56 mini spool in a Ford 9 inch
MT 28x9.50 tires
was told ran 11.70
my actual knowledge is its not a four bolt main
no idea what size motor it is, specs out as 350 block/heads
Posi not working, its a peg legger and had really bad wheel hop
14.0 at 98 mph in 1/4 were the times I got, was really disappointing...
Yeah thats a bummer when it doesn't come close to what you were expecting. What carb,intake,gears,exhaust,timing curve?
It has a Demon 750 Air gap intake and the timing appears to be locked at 40 degrees which means it has no compression I believe.
It had the 1 3/4 inch hooker headers with dynomax mufflers 3 inch pipes.
It's much different now so I am interested to take it to the track again see if I made it slower!
Same motor carb, but smaller 1 1/2 Sanderson Headers, 5 speed manual 3.73 with posi traction 265/35/18 tires
I suspect it will be slower.
If the motor is lower compression and not alot of cubes it may prefer the smaller primary tube headers. The intake in the pic looks to be a big single plane. The Edelbrock RPM air gap is a dual plane style and would probably really wake the motor up down low and mid range. I would double check the timing and verify your get WOT.
