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.....

Joe, Joe, Joe! When are ya gonna retire and start relaxing???
Wow is that a real open valve that has been converted?
Well excuse me 2 open valves, yow sir
Royce said it. Straighten six pans last week myself.
Mike,I think I recognize my pan.
Looks like 4 open valve engines.
Double exposure. I only see 2
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!!
It is! Two pics side by side. Lol
