I have some good and bad news, the good is that i got the car all painted up

and the motor back in and running, so i decided to go to national trails

today, the first run down the track i ran a 11:61 @ 92mph, and the second i

ran a 11:74 @ 114mph, more good news is that on the second pass i cut a

.000 light, perfect, my first time:D the bad new is that the car is missing bad

What happened that it ran 11.6? @ 92 then backed that up with a 11.7? @ 114. Good times but just odd. Put the practice tree away and fix the skip.......LOL. RM

Great info! Thanks!!! Always gathering info for my 406 buildup. I'm at the cam stage now (actually have been for a while, but that's another story...)

Are your Eagle rods the 6" ESP 3D H-beam ones?

You said solid...solid flat tappet, or solid roller?

Did you need to run a reduced base circle cam, or is it a standard base circle one?

Did you have any rod clearance problems with the cam? If so, did you grind the rods to clear?

Thanks!!!

Pat

rods= esp forged, cam is a solid flat tappet, it is a standard base circle cam, but it was close! i didnt have to grind anything but the sides of the block on the oil pan rails, the rod bolts hit them. no grinding at all on the rods:D
