Fedex delivered the camshaft and I got the engine almost done already. I can drop it to the car soon and get the transmission to my engine stand for overhaul.

Image
The cam is a Melling stock replacement. So it's supposed to be a bit bigger than the stock -61 cam was. It went in nice and turned freely.

This part is the most fun that a car guy get to do, the final assembly and detailing. Some paint here and there, alternator, distributor, some brackets and were done! Allthough, the serpentine tensioner needs some adjustment as the belt is interfering with water pump pulley. Tensioner is not under load in the picture but it might be too strong for this application. My first mockup tensioner was a weaker unit but it also looked like crap.

Excellent work. Should make plenty of power for that big cruiser bruiser...

Engine is back in the bay and transmission is now disassembled. Still a ton of work ahead, but I hope to get it running in few weeks!

My buddy made same cool decals for me! Planning to put one of these to the air cleaner housing. Just need to find something OE-look and cylinder shape.

Tranny had some seriously worn front clutches. Amazing that it was still working ok though. I have a Transgo TF2 kit to go with it.

Nice work, I've wanted to make some "Turbocharger 225" underhood decals for my build. :)

Little by little...

Transmission is back in the car. It took a bit longer than I expected as I got the wrong master kit for it at first. I used deep oil pan from Jeep RE42 and made filter extension from piece of steel stock. Soon I'm about to start making the exhaust pipe. I was thinking of single 2-1/2" and 2" from the Dutra Duals to collector.

Also I hide the extra gauges in the dash. I just didn't like to spoil the beautiful dash. I modified the beautiful radio delete plate to be opened with a switch and hide the smaller gauges behind it. Tachometer rises from the speaker provision in the dash. They need a bit refinement, but you get the idea...

Image
Here's a Youtube link for the gauges: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpItA_cTRaA

Wow! I love this project! I have hopes of building the same thing someday in a '70 dart. Im thinking of blocking off the backside inlet and milling new inlets for the carb on top. I want to build a sheetmetal intake to mount the m90 on its side and then build a plenum to bolt onto the new inlet so i can use a standard downdraft carburetor but still make it all fit under a flat hood.

I just have to figure out a clutch that will survive behind that kind of motor.
