I've been accumulating parts here and there as I wait for the heat to go away, 113 yesterday, 113 today and possibly 115 tomorrow. For me I hit the jackpot today. I'm using a Hilborn can driven fuel pump off an old local dragster for my fuel pump. But I didn't want to pull the fuel all the way from the rear tank with it. I wanted to find a Moon tank to mount in the front and feed it with a small electric pump. This would feed the Hilborn pump really nice. But I also wanted to have a fuel level control of some sort in the tank so I was thinking to modify whatever tank I got with a flat flange to accept a Holley fuel bowl. Bodda Bing, Bodda Boom, I look on Performance Years classified pages and what do I find??? Just exactly what I needed. To a tee. Thanks to Chris (Torment) I've got my front Moon tank.
As you can see in the second pic it even has the Holley float bowl mounting flange on it. I could not have custom ordered it any better.
Plus I got a good clutch from Hooter that probably won't be the clutch I will ultimately need but it will get me by on start up and break in etc. Until I know what I need, or change over to an automatic if it becomes necessary. It'* just a good old Centerforce 10.5 clutch but in great shape.
I also got my shifters. One Hurst v-gate and one Mr. Gasket v-gate to try out to see which one works the best. I have to have time in the garage to a make shifter mount and the rods. Again just too hot.
The motor is all balanced and with just one more machining item left it will be ready to assemble. Things are rolling along nicely.
