    Thanks, It took a while to save for this stuff. I was even thinking of using a 4.250" stroker making it 482, but at that level it would require a steel crank for that HP level and that's just more time saving for one of those. So I will have to be happy with a small beast instead of a big beast...

    I'm confused, are you posting for 1967 XR7 GT? If not then maybe you should start your own thread.

    Update: Still collecting engine parts.

    POP'S Blueprinted Melling HV Oil Pump

    Originally, I was going to run a Holley 850 DP, but because of intended daily driving, I was looking for a Vacuum Secondary carb around the same CFM, and came across this NOS Holley 1,050 CFM 3 Barrel, so I will see If it's any better.







    I had previously sent out my Sidewinder to be match ported, when I got it back, I was very disappointed on how it turned out, so I just shelved it. Eight months later, I pull the manifold down and sent it out to get welded, and then got in touch with Joe D. Craine, who ports and balance flows each manifold runner, to make a long story short the manifold showed today, it will make a substantial improvement on my heads now.

    I haven't seen one of those 3 barrels in close to 50 years. Production was pretty short lived as the release of the Dominators pretty much killed any demand for them.

    These recently showed, Vacuum formed covers, so I mocked them up checking for enough clearance, looks to have plenty of room with the Harland Sharp steel end stands, Aluminum spacers, Cast Iron inner factory stands, Crane Cams 1.76 Ductile Iron Adjustable Rocker Arms with upgraded 7/16" 12 point ARP nuts, replacing the heavier original 5/8' 6 point nuts. Now, I will have to sit down, and shim all the rockers centered on the valves.

    Those covers are slick. Neat way to cheaply verify everything.
