1954 Pontiac "Viola" - Straight Pipe Straight 8

The Pontiac's getting a new muffler ... so of course I had to run it at least once with an open pipe.

Heating up Salt Cat's "big" engine
August 29, 2010. Again, it is nearly impossible to torque the head or set the valves while the engine is in the car -- we have a straight 8 Buick set in the body of a XJ6 Jaguar and the engine extends through the firewall into the drivers compartment). So we hooked the engine to the air compressor and heated the engine to 210' for 4 hours so we could re-torque the head and set the valves hot. We will be participating in World of Speed, in Bonneville in just under 2 weeks...Yee Haw!

Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1. Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer & build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all & just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.

Chrysler Straight 8 Flathead Marine startup-idle
Chrysler Marine Flathead straight 8, starting and idling in a beautiful triple cockpit mahogany runabout. This was shot about 20 years ago. Sounds great! I first posted this as an Imperial, but upon further review, I believe it is actually a Royal, 323 cid. Not sure, at any rate it was a long time ago that I took this video....





Salt Cat Racing - The BIG Engine - Straight 8, 367 C.I.
Recorded on May 25, 2010. Over the winter a bored & stroked 325 was built (367 C.I.). Also, Frank started boring holes in one of the old heads -- resulting in a 16 port. He named it the "Henry 16 Port" (his 1st name is Henry). Bigger injectors (90#) were added. The engine was really making awesome horsepower, until one of the upper cylinder walls let loose! We hope to get this engine/head combination back together in time for World of Speed in September and run it in the XXO Class. For Speed Week we will be running in the XO Class using the Henry head.

Salt Cat Racing the 325 w/the Henry Head What happened?
August 22, 2010. Melted two pistons because we had just a hair too much timing in it. To repair it for next year we will have to sleeve it back to the 30 over so it can stay in the XO class. The lower end and the Henry Head survived in great shape! With the speeds it was going it was on a 200 mph run, pulling hard when it let go. We finally found the fragile balance between enough timing to make great Boost and too much timing that leads to a certain death. Still, the little engine set five Land Speed Records, and bumped three of those records up this year. The little engine WILL be back...

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every 1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes, but we will take care of that at a later date.
