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 just north of Bakersfield, CA in Oct. 2010. We did fairly well for our first time out, the car ran great and had very few problems. All this on my spare pickup engine.

In December 2009 I got the idea that it would be fun to have a FED so I
asked a few questions and read a few threads on the HAMB. After wieghing
all the advice and suggestions I bought a set of Mark Williams blue prints
and got started. With the help of a good friend or two I had a can the was
ready to race at Eagle Field in May 2010.

FORD 292 Y-BLOCK ENGINE RUNNING AFTER 35 YEARS IN BRAZIL
Funcionamento de um motor Ford "Y" block 292, retirado de um antigo
caminhão F-600. o motor estava parado há 35 anos, em uma granja no
interior de São Luiz Gonzaga/RS, de onde saiu para vir a equipar em breve
uma Ford F-100 ano 1960..
O engenheiro agrônomo Luis Fernando Graeff, antes de ligar, trocou óleo e
filtro, instalou uma bobina, lixou o platinado, e instalou um carburador
DFV 444 usado no lugar do original, que precisa de reparos. Feito isso,
bastou recolocar motor de arranque e bateria e fazer o motor funcionar!!!!!
Cabe salientar que após esquentar, ficou insuportável o cheiro de urina
de ratos oriundo do velho bloco Y 292!!!

back in once I get my new head gaskets. The cam is noticebly more mild
since it was ment for the street. This is the same cam profile the Bing
