    960 lbs , the 180-degree crank is going to shake it apart.
    Average operation RPM range was 1400-1600rpm
    starter motors where 72volt and rated at 16HP
    Each piston has 6 rings on it and has MASSIVE ring drag. Plus, they weight 4 pounds apiece

    It's mine. They vibrate some between 1600 and 1900, but really smooth out around 2200, and really start singing around 4000. I know guys that have twisted them to 5200, but my rev. limiter is set at 4800. The factory starter was 24 volt, but it's history anyway. I use dual Powermaster Chrysler V8 racing starters on mine, one on each side. They are working great so far. The factory pistons use 5 rings, but you don't have to use all of the grooves, and you don't have to use stock pistons. My engine uses 4 Total Seal rings on modified stock pistons. My second engine is getting custom pistons for the 32 pounds of boost that it will see on a regular basis in my pulling tractor. These old engines will make ALOT of power when built correctly. They really like turbos due to the 180 degree cranks. I built the Mustang just for fun, I don't plan on breaking any world records with it.

    Several years back there was a guy named Bob Patterson out west that ran a GAA powered boat. The engine was basically stock except for the intake and carbs. It was very competitive with dual big block Chevy combos at the time.

    Cool welcome to the board Alot of guys on speedtalk were giving ya some shet about it on the forum. I guess your taking it farther than they know. Hope ya get it going soon. Its defiantly going to one hell of a attention getter at the local Sonic cruzes!!

    Ya got any updated Picks?

    Thanks guys. I cranked it up earlier this evening. It is a beast, shook the shop walls pretty good. The alky. fumes even cleared out my plugged up sinuses. I will try and post something on U-Tube tomorrow. I only have dial up here at home.
