I was so impressed when somebody crossed the 400hp line with the Y block years ago. This is incredable.

Surely one of the fastest if not thee fastest car there, as was his '58. No way can you build an 8 second car for that kind of money.

My guess is that they are Chinese Sanderson rip offs. They were floating around e-bay for a while selling for $150 . They never claimed what they fit other than a FE. Sanderson's have their name on them and they actually fit.

I had a 64 with a t-10 that had one of those. I assumed it was to kill noise from clutch loading and drive line harmonics coming back through the shifter handle. Always wanted to cut one apart to see how it was constructed. GM had a service bulletin where on manual transmissions if a customer complained about noisy trans. they would fill the drive shaft with expandable foam insulation. Real problem was weak clutch disc hub springs.

Just a bunch of college guys trying to get something going on. I'll give them credit for that. If they take advice from people in the know, good for them. If not, it's the internet, purveyor of bad advice, no matter what your looking at.

FE Technical Forum / Re: Autolite 4100 carburetor sticky secondaries
« on: June 01, 2023, 06:59:37 AM »
If it operates freely with the engine not running it is ok. With the engine running, vacuum holds it closed until the primaries are at wide open, then the secondaries are easy to open. I think you're looking for a problem that doesn't exist. BTW with a properly operating vacuum secondary carb. you will hardly feel the secondaries open. Just seems like one big 2bbl.

must be a very short order list. price of diesel may be scaring people away. you did good.

I used SEM but you are limited to color selection. You could try acrylic enamel with a flex agent like they use in bumper covers.
