FE Technical Forum / Re: Has anyone tried a cable clutch linkage conversion?

I would also fab up the parts, even using a Z bar from something else.  I hate cables and anything hydraulic for clutches.

Ya, the old Blue pump.  My Mallory 140 is pretty quiet, but I also have a return line on it.  I think that is more the issue with noise, the constant deadheading.  Let it free wheel and it isn't so bad.

It does have a license plate on it, but no road insurance.

Wow, heard about the project car, very cool.  Bummer not getting it completed in time, then to have the red car go kaput.  Ugh.

There is "always next year"...................right?

Ya, the wagon would be cool, but would take some finesse to get it ready for 1000 mile road trip  :P  Like a block not 3/4 filled with concrete  :o.

Anyone got an alum block they don't need and would donate to a good cause???  Few more cubes, little more headwork and might go 10.5's?  Not bad.
I had a line on a 482, all alum FE, made just a tic under 800 hp.  All fresh, ready to roll and it was bargain priced!!!!  Man, if I just had the money to waste on it a few years ago I would be in like Flynn.  Maybe 9.90's then???

Good to see everyone made it to the end. 

I had a great time last Tuesday hanging out with Jay and the Gang(sounds like a music group?) and Doug and his family.  Thanks again Doug for the ice cream(part of the "norwalk experience").  When I heard Jay had rocker issues at Martin I was like..ugh, we shoulda never said a word about "no rocker issues so far" at Norwalk.

I always say I want to do either drag week or power tour but just never seem to get it on my schedule.  I've put thoughts into taking the Mack on power tour instead of one of the hot rods.  I have less issue leaving it sit in a parking lot overnight(no one can drive a truck with three sticks so not much chance of it being stolen) as I'm kinda itchy about even leaving the race car out overnight at the track.   Ah, someday.
