It looks real sweet, Dave, almost too sweet. A show car, a show engine. My projects, well, they be smaller, I piddle around with garden tractors and attachments, and they're all workers. Even when I attempt making them look nice, they wind up looking like me rather than a runway model......


 any of them have small block chev's in em? wink ever seen those tiller races? I'll' see if I can find a video,,,

those are some bad azz women I'd say,,,




 

Proof positive, if it has an engine, man will find a way to race it.

 

No Chevys, be Fords anyway if I was go that route. I've had various engines, but I'm down to nothing but big block Kohler single flatheads now.  Here is my last one:

The piece of 4" exhaust pipe was the makings of a high flow muffler I built for it.  The breather on the tall tube didn't work out either, ultimately ended up putting the stock breather back on.   Several hours of work in the carb alone....

Nice work Dale,,  is that a mower its sitting on... kind of a unique hobby,, what kind of HP will that put out?  

 when my youngest son  was 6 ( he's 34 now) we started racing Quarter midget race cars,, powered by a Deco 4 h/p motor flat head engine,, ( originally used to power field generators in the military  40's found by the hundreds in military surplus stores , and in the 40's were 10 bucks or so)) and when the racers started using them they got expensive as hell. especially the parts, cause only a select group had access to the suppliers , so a group of members in the 70's  got together and finally got a 4 HP Honda motor approved,, now the Honda motor is about all that is used,,

We made our own intake manifolds, exhaust, and eventually ground our own cams for the 4 cycle 1/2 and modified classes,, real expensive hobby to say the least,,, especially for no reward if you won other than some cheap 6" trophy,,,

Wheel Horse garden tractor. Put almost anything I want on it. Mower deck, snowblower, etc.

Stock, it was 16hp, should be in the low 20's as it sits. It was intended to be mainly for blowing snow, but after rebuilding everything over a 7 year period, except the pto clutch which slipped (remember my problems in the cold and winding up with a Kubota), it really doesn't have a specific use now.

That will no doubt be my last "Super Single". Wish I had done a few more things to it, such as a larger intake valve. More stroke would have been nice too, but the reworked crank I had had been waiting on the shelf 6-7 years as it was. Collected the rest of the parts over that time.

Be cool to make another, as was planned, .060" over, 1/4" stroke, bigger intake valve, rework a bigger carb to feed it..... Realistically, that simply isn't in the budget, never will be with this "affordable" health care. Now that I'm shelling out a large portion of my income for insurance, the cash discount is gone, the deductible is so high, I'm paying more out of pocket for medical than I did before, PLUS have to shell out for the monthly premium.

Affordable my ass. Maybe for the rich, but the poor took a real screwing.

 errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr - this thread started with my bathroom redo and has probably taken more twists and turns then the average garter snake on my lawn on a warm and sunny day. And that bathroom - it's almost done after grouting the sink back splash today and installing the med cabinet and painting the baseboard HW heat cover.

Not gonna be a check is it Bill? Green folding mattress stuffing?

Oh well, and now another hijack - the engine is back in my '31 and now is being 'dressed' with all of that fancy stuff (had to take most of it off to shoehorn the engine in place with the added 2-3 inches of setback under the firewall).
