Nice! PM or email HOTROD2. He has a 50 here in Michigan he has done a lot of work to. He also knows most of the history on the boats and the son of the original designers and builders. He has his apart again modifying the engines. You can also search his posts and should be a bunch of info.

I'm pretty sure that it was re-rigged by Mike Jenkins, (haven't seen him on the board for a long time) If it's the same boat, it originally had four 454's with TRS drives. I bought one of the old TRS's from Mike about 5 years ago. Mike did fantastic work, he was heavily involved with the Larry Smith Scarabs.

Try sending Mike Jenkins a PM. or email.

Hey Kurt, this is the same boat. I sent Mike J an email but did not get a reply. I'm hoping someone on OSO will know how to get in touch with him.

Shoot a message to Nort (Phantom Chaos) He might be able to contact him. I had his # but can't seem to find it at this time.
