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.
Cutaway Ford Model A motor running on one cylinder.
I met this guy at the 2010 Badger Steam & Gas Show who had a cutaway Ford
Model A engine that would run on one cylinder. He would do short demos as
it will overheat if run too long due to no coolant. Super cool!

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....
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.
