A busy January leads to me hauling some A conversions back to Detroit today.

There's a lot of T engine pans that are going to need a lot of work!!!!! Joe's photo is just the beginning of the story. Lots of stuff to do before those engines will be ready to run.

One takes me a couple of months, five would take me years......
I think some have the 1 1/2 inch Scat crank, which makes a very solid T engine. Most of the long distance cars in the Southern Cal club use either the A crank or more recently the 1 1/2 Scat crank and they very rarely have engine problems. So far I have only installed the 1 1/4 inch Scat, even the Red Head Speedster was a standard Scat. I guess the bigger Scat needs the larger block bearings in the pictures above, and the two bolts just clear the crank, but it is close. Enough ramblings.....

After seeing the B crank in a T block I know now where Scat got their I deals for the crank they make. One block has the Bu Mac crank, I hear they are not a good life span on them? It was fun figuring out a few things and as Royce says there is a whole lot more work involved yet. One block has the intakes opened for oval port dual Model A carbs, I thought that look pretty cool!!
