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.
1950 Pontiac Silver Streak 8 Sedan - Flathead Straight Eight Powered Classic Car
I thought you might like a look at this very original 1950 Pontiac Silver
Streak 8 Sedan. It's sure looking sharp with all that chrome over top of
that mean looking black paint. I believe it's still powered by the original
flathead 268 cubic inch Straight eight engine as well. I hope you find it
interesting...thanks for checking it out!

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!
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.

Los Hungaros Inc. bemutatja:First Start `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine (SOLD)
SOLD!!! `50 BUICK FIREBALL 320ci straight 8 engine for sale!
I got this engine not long time ago from a friend of mine with a stock,
good running`50 Buick who was swapping in a small block Chevy. The only
reason it was pulled out from the car, because the broke down Dynaflow.
And his easiest way was to get a 350 combo.
I was going to use it in my future project, a`20`s race car replica, but
decided on a different engine.
It`s ran always GREAT before it was pulled out.No smokes, nor knocks at
all. The engine was checked under the valve cover and found absolutely
clean inside.The valve gasket has been replaced.This is the greatest
version of the FABULOUS FIREBALL EIGHT.
Attention people,This is The REAL BIG ONE , NOT a "tiny"263ci!
It is a real 320ci!!
