Hey Brent, looks like some burly push rods there. Are they a must have considering the rest of that valve train? I’m asking because I have seen you use lighter stuff. Is that ride going to have an aluminum flywheel?

656 peak hp.

Jim, I always use the biggest pushrods I can fit.  A .135" wall 3/8" pushrod is the minimum that I would use here with these spring pressures.  If I could have made a 7/16" pushrod fit, I would have used them.

It would be something to try on a future engine, but I haven't really found where they need any port work so far.  I think it would take a 480-ish cube engine or a lot higher rpms to need more volume out of them. 

They usually come in just a hair under 170cc and flow about 330 cfm.  They're good pieces and will feed a 465 inch engine up to about 700 hp at 7200-7500 rpm.

Still a week or two away on this one.   The room constraints have really proved to be a pain in the booty, as far as pump placement, belt length, hose routing, etc. 





Finally got everything plumbed the other day and was able to prime the dry sump pump.  I always prime the pump with the engine on the stand and the intake off for a reason.....and this is one of those reasons....  Sometimes a solid roller lifter won't pass enough oil to the rockers and the lifters need a connecting groove in order to get adequate flow. 

In this picture, the rockers on the left side of the photo are still dry after a couple minutes of priming.  A quick groove and they pass oil like they should.

Love it Brent
what do you use to grove the lifters?
My build is very close to the same as this apart from the dry sump.
the T&D race set up i'm using a MT style cast tappet cover any clearance problems with tappet cover's?

Just found this today too.
Cats are asleep, one recovering from a wound, so a little Gonkulator time.

JDC must have read the Gonkulators mind on this one.
With the engine driving the water pump and the fancy vacuum oil system in place, and your 2" dyno header setup:
Torq 607 at 4900
Powr 718 at 6800

That is one serious engine.
