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.
Y-Block Ford V8 running Tim McMaster Pressurized rockers #2
Here is my 341ci Y-Block Ford running on a stand with an open valve cover
to show that pressurizing the rocker shafts will not pool large amounts of
oil in the head and flood the valve guides. This is not to show that using
the overflow tubes is a bad thing, I just want to show that pressurizing is
338ci Y-Block Ford dragster run.
Fire up of the 338ci Y-Block that was ment for my pickup but is now the
temp. dragster engine for the Oct. 9 Eagle Field meet. The 322ci Y will go
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
Simmers has in his '56 effie motor. ;-)
Front Engine Dragster built in five months
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.

Y Block powered 1962 Ford Unibody LSR Best pass for Nov 2013 El Mirage
Our best pass for 2013 at El Mirage. Maybe not the best we can do but it's
been a rough year. Couldn't get parts for the new engine until just before
Speed Week (we did run 147.195 there) then the Sept. and Oct. meets were
canceled. When Nov. came around the course conditions were less than good
so you run with what you got. Truck ran great and we will post better
times next May. Cheers!
