Glen L Hot Rod Startup
First start up on our Glen-L Marine Designs 17' V-drive ski boat. The boat was to be powered by a high winding 283 cubic inch Chevrolet small block V8. Unfortunately the engine developed a bad knock as soon as we fired it up a week ago. We swapped most of the parts over to a 'quickly' freshened up 350 CID Chevy. The block is 'on loan' so I guess I'll have to be kind to it ! Paul Kane, Chelsea, Quebec, Canada Building the Glen-L Hot Rod : Videographer : Mr Hot Rod
