ENGINE BUILDING SERVICES

I don’t do a lot of engine building for others because of the time involved. HOWEVER, I have several early Chrysler hemi blocks with different bores so I am able to assemble the components for a short block without shipping the heavy item – the block. This saves us both the headache and expense of crating and shipping a block or short block. At minimum, I would need the rotating assembly, one head and the valve train you will be using or I can supply any missing item(s). If interested give me a call and we can go over the details. My qualifications – I have never lost a lower end component in over 50-years.

CHECKING PUSHROD – double adjustment

I have a few adjustable pushrods left for determining the final length before placing your order. They are adjustable from 9″ to 12″. These are not stock pushrods cut in half with the inside threaded as the material is too hard for a tap. These have a brazed 1/4-28 threaded insert in both halves to accommodate the threaded stock. The upper portion of the pushrod incorporates the same 1/4 ball adjuster (shown) as you would get when you order from Smith Brothers or ?. This additional top adjuster is handy for making your final adjustment without repeatedly removing the pushrod. The bottom portion uses either a 1/4 or 3/8 ball – 1/4 ball shown. Although intended for a stock rocker setup, it can be used on any rocker assembly.  $50

IGNITION

MSD Digital 7 w/boost retard (# 7535) The mother of all boxes.  Perfect for any supercharged engine plus an easy unit to setup. All functions such as burnout rpm, launch rpm, max rpm, turbo spool-up rpm, rpm/time/pressure activated switch, 32 point boost retard map, 32 point gear retard map plus many other features are quickly set with the furnished laptop software. Each set of parameters can then be saved for future reference or loaded back into the Digital 7. No additional 2 or 3-step limiters to purchase. Digital 7 has not been run since MSD factory checkout. Now one might ask: “If so good, why are you selling it?”. Convinced that a MSD Pro Mag would burn the fuel better, I spent $3000 on a setup for my 354. Bad news – the Pro Mag did not improve performance. Good news – I can use the cross drive Pro Mag as a backup on my late model hemi. Cost $1000+ at Jegs.   $450 + shipping  Note: You can on-line search for MSD 7535 and view a PDF of the extensive features at the Jegs site. Software download is under 7530.

ETC dual range rev limiter with rpm switch for Mallory Super Mag 1-3. Can be upgraded for Super Mag 4. Works like a MSD 2-step rev limiter with a rpm switch for a shifter, shift light or ? I’m now using a MSD ProMag so will not need this. If you order from ETC it’s $450 so this is a super deal. New unit. $175

Shipping weight: 60 lbs  $475 S O L D

RODS

Note on ANY rod:

Bolt or thread failure is the quickest way to ruin an engine. When buying used rods, make sure the threads are good (see Tech Talk) before purchase. Always replace the bolts, even if the seller says they are new. Do not take a chance. If purchasing new rods, do so from a supplier like Miller, CP-Carrillo, etc. You’re taking a chance if you buy a major brand from a third party.

Notes on steel rods:

A recent search on ebay showed several possibilities for aftermarket rods. These all take the BBC bearing and priced under $400. 1) Eagle forged I-beam w/ ARP 7/16 bolts – good for under 700 hp $381. 2) Billet H-beam with ARP bolts – good for over 700 hp $285. All pin sizes are standard BBC at .990. Re-bushing for a .984 Chrysler pin runs $100-$120/set at your local machine shop. If you already have .984 pistons, you can also opt for a set of Chevy .990 rods and have the pin bore in the pistons honed out. If going with a stock length rod, you can use a Pontiac rod for the 326-455. The pin bushing will need to be honed to .984.

BEARINGS

(1) set Childs & Albert -.010 main bearings for big block Chevy. NEW These are the good Clevite 77 “V” bearings.  $138 at Jegs. $25

PISTONS for Supercharged gas or alcohol

(12) used Arias 3.967 (354 + .030) 8.25:1 compression. They take 5/64 – 5/64 – 3/8 rings. Eight (8) are the same size (2) a couple thousandths under and (2) new. The new pistons have a different ring stack placement but the same compression height (1.867). The pistons will require a +1/8 longer rod (6.750) to obtain the compression noted. If you don’t have the correct rod, I would opt for a BBC rod with a .990 pins and have your machine shop hone the pin bore in piston). $275  S O L D

RINGS

I have many rings both new and used. When I remove a set of rings about half are perfect and OK to put back in but I usually replace the whole set. Most of the chrome/stainless .017 Dykes are for a 4″ bore. I also have some new .017 Dykes for a 392 (4.062 bore) and some complete moly sets for a 3.875 bore 331. If you’re running supercharged gas for the first time you’re going to go through rings – give me a call – I’ll save you a lot of $$$$. Note: Used Dykes rings are considered good if: 1) the chrome is not burned off the face of the ring 2) they have not collapsed from heat. Used rings purchased from me will meet this criteria.

Piston Rings – Here’s a plug for my long-time friend Bruce Walker. If you need piston rings, Bruce can be contacted at BWE Piston Rings. Tel: (661) 644-6118
Bruce can supply just about any size rings, pistons or pins at competitive (or cheaper) prices. Give him a try.

MAGAZINES / NEWSPAPERS  –  OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!

I’ve drug a pile of vintage Drag News and National Dragster newspapers and other magazines around for years. Time to downsize. Minimum order $25 (or 1-year ) – must be in successive order – no cherry picking. So, if it’s a magazine you’ll probably get about (12) and if a *newspaper maybe (45).   Drag News or National Dragster up to ’70 – $3.50/issue. ’70-’80 $2.50.  1980+ $1.50.  All magazines $2.00. Purchase specific individual copies – $25 Search and purchase individual copies – $45. Quantity discounts available.     Note: this is not a “collection”. I’ve just boxed my subscriptions. Some early newspapers are brittle and need TLC – can’t just rip them open like this morning’s newspaper. Most are in good condition unless indicated

Drag News originated on the West Coast (Lions, Fontana, San Gabriel, Orange County, Fremont, etc) and then evolved into nationwide coverage. National Dragster (NHRA publication) covers nationwide with about 30% more pages than ND.

I’ve only inventoried up to 1990. I also have National Dragster, Hot Rod Magazine, Street Rodder, etc up to 2000. If you’re interested in issues after 1990 let me know. I also have some odds and ends like the Funny Car Pictorials from 1970, Hot Rod Magazine yearbooks (’70’s), etc.

How about a “Program” from the “Last Drag Race” at Lions Drag Strip on December 2, 1972. It has the history of the strip, managers, pictures of competing dragsters, etc. If you collect Lions memorabilia this is it. $100  SOLD
