« Part 161: 34 coupe One more Time #2 Part 162 of Toy Construction series Part 163: 34 coupe Feel like I'm getting some where »

One of those might as well make 3 while I’m at it so my next model can have one.

I want to thank SouthavenToyMaker for his motor project that got me wanting to build a really mean Hot Rod motor.

Getting cold in the shop. BRRRRRRR!!!!!

I’ve been getting asked for the dimensions for the motor well here’s a quick drawing.

Hope this helps.

What do you call cold Bruce, we’re enjoying a start to summer of high 20deg’s “C” to the mid 30deg’s “C”...

Back on topic, good start to the engine!!

Went out and played a little more with them.

Wonder how it will fit the car?

And how about a two engine dragster? LOL

Hey Oldrivers!!!
I saw Town Creek, Alabama @ Wheeler Dam and it made me remember my old mussel diving days in your neck of the woods, man it would be cold in that there lake in the winter, BRRR, Double BRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just lately moved back to Sylagauga, the river here comes out of Georgia so not as cold for diving in the winter, not that I’m doing that any more. LOL

And thanks all for your comments it makes my day to get in put on these builds.

Dont forget the colder the air going in, the more horses coming out!
You would want to be hanging on with 2x the power or end up in the dicky seat!

Very nice progress!
