  • Engine Progress

    I'm slowly making progress on my new engine. This is an Indy short block (470") assembled by the guys at Diamonback. I'm completing the assembly, wanting to have it going in time for the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in June (maybe the June Monster in St Louis).

    Here is the short block on the stand:

    Still got to do some work on the transmission (manual valve body), should be ready to install in a week or two...

      My image posting solution was to go to Southern Star Hosting, to register the domain of for less than $10, and hosting for less than $5 a month. I then installed the Free Application Zen Photo with one click from my Control Panel. I have tens of thousands of my photo digitized, which in time I'll upload there to preserve from disaster, and access from anywhere. In the meantime it makes for a great place to host my forum photos - plus I can still install 24 more free applications on that site if I cared to.

            That's correct. I'm planning on getting some fresh air carbs also.
