Y-Block powered FED at Famoso Raceway
This is me (Tim McMaster) and my Y-Block Ford powered front engine gas
dragster Elwood. It's our first time running the 1320 at Famoso Raceway

my spare pickup engine.

miss the problems and just want to see this thing run.
My Dads' 272 Ford, which he has rebuilt with new cam, Weiand triple intake
and 3 94's. The engine wasn't bolted down at all on the stand, so it
couldn't rev too hard as it tipped a lot. Still needs headers and a later
distributor with mechanical advance. Will be hooked to a 4-speed toplader.
