  • First is me at my first show after getting it driveable, and admittedly for attention 😉 It made it, there and back! but.....2nd Pic is of my check list when I first started the project. It was taken about halfway through. The 3rd pic is the follow up to the but. I have aftermarket aluminum heads on a 95 roller 350. I decided to reuse the cast exhaust manifolds from the 305, to, you know to save money. HA! Well the best myself and a few other old-timer Hotrodders can figure is that maybe the aftermarket heads had spark plug holes drilled to accommodate headers which put the plugs at a slightly different angle to stock. So after 4 break in heat runs in the garage and 2, 10 Mile Drives I cooked off my first spark plug wire. I replaced it, put them all in fiberglass Shields and kept going with the initial driving steps. Got to my first car show then drove home. By the time I got it into the garage it was running like garbage. Like I lost 2 or 3 cylinders. Back story, during break in 3 different valves hung up 3 different times. I thought I lost some valves again. All it was, was 3 more wires including the one that are already replaced had burned through even with heat shields. Even heat shields didn't work so I had to look other options. Ceramic ones wouldn't fit and all other types of rubber ones, straights 90s all, were burning too. My next option was to make ceramic ones fit. At first I had 1/8" of clearance between the tip of the spark plug and exhaust manifold. I decided to hog out the exhaust manifold because, if I broke it Id have to replace it anyway. And replacing it at that moment would have bought me into redoing the entire exhaust. I didn't feel like paying for that. Keep in mind I am an outside machinist and more than capable of making precision metal chips. This was not Precision however, it was done with a Dremel. HA!  In the end I got the clearance I needed to put ceramic spark plug wires on it and has been running fine ever since! #1951 #1951chevy #chevy #chevy3100 #classiccars #chevyadvancedesign #hotrod #hotrodtruck #rattruck #ratrod #customcars #customtrucks #restomod #builtnotbought #c10 #10bolt #classicchevy #classictrucks

  • Update on the BMW: since making 550whp on 93 octane I’ve added a few parts to hit my goal of 750whp @ 30psi on full e85 such as BMP PI and EBC Gforce3. Unfortunately my Index 12 injector on Cylinder 2 came loose (my fault - wasn’t torqued down properly) and it oval’d the cylinder head bore and car has been sitting for the past few weeks 🙁 Now I’m trying to decide between swapping a new cylinder head or swapping another stock n54 motor. Before cyl head got damaged it was making some jam on full e85. 16psi pulled harder than 22psi on 93 octane (550WHP) Soon enough she will be back stronger than ever and going for that 750whp mark with a few extra goodies thrown in there 😏

  • Electrical has definitely been one of the most challenging aspects of this build so far. It’s something that’s pretty much uncharted territory for me and there’s just so much to learn. I was trying to rush it too, so I could have it running for the show - but that didn’t end up happening anyway because of a starter motor issue I totally should’ve seen earlier. You’d think I’d know by now that rushing anything just leads to more headaches and having to do things a second or third time over.. but also, you should know by now that I’m pretty fricken determined 😌 (*cough* stubborn). I’m looking forward to finishing up the wiring, but the whole process has been humbling, to say the least 😓 Luckily for me I had Rob to play teacher vs student with on this one.. (it hasn’t been at all sexy like I’d imagined it to be 🤨) we’re pretty different when it comes to how we teach/learn things, so the fact that we haven’t killed each other over these last few weeks is a pretty good sign. Although, there are still a few more to go... 😳🙊😅
