    Default It's been awhile but now Blowers Rule

    Dont even call me a blown jerk but:
    My Drew Marine engine is together! 871 Mag Bowers competition puffer with 660s on a 427BBC with Ford 6.700 scat rods, Venolia flats, Ford stainless rockers, Comp Roller with 4 7 switch (Ford firing order) topped with square port closed 840s (1968). Drew and I call it a FordOlet with a bad attitude or possible identity crisis!

    Super fellow, that Drew, I couldnt be happier to have a 157 mph Kilo K boat driver encourage me to stay racing. Especially when he shares all his experience, both circle racing and engine building with a perfect jErK!

    I recommend him to anyone looking for reliable horsepower, either Ford or Chev!

    Good friend bought his first flat in 1990 and Drew taught him alot about set up and safety, treated with respect. Our family has bought stuff over the years from him, good guy who knows what works.

    Default Glass is complete

    5 days of laminating, with Vinyl Ester Resin (12000 PSI tensil strength) and mat, then cloth, then mat then cloth, then mat then duraglass, then sand, sand, sand, sand, and sand some more....phew. But for my reward Saturday, the blower manifold had been redrilled to move the 871 1/2 inch forward and the vertex mag now drops in with 1/32 of clearance! Made my week! My machinist is preparing his blown Anderson Hemi to bracket race! Yes, a 6 second alcohol dragster running throttle stop controls! Sad!

    Good news is he may take my K boat around a few laps! And possibly replace me if all goes well.. Dragster drivers usually make the switch easily from asphalt to wet.

    First race is 3 weeks away at Banks but I wont be ready so possibly Tastin!!
