I'm Stevie from 'sunny' Scotland............Brrrrrrrrrrshivershiver.
I've joined this forum and the main reason is that I've been looking in for a while and really liked what I see, particularly on this 'cleveland tech' forum, which I have learned a lot from over this last year (my car has a fairly hot clevo 4v). Thanks!!!
It's all Ford - an old 1953 Ford Zodiac Mk1 that has all ford running gear, with the engine being a 'warmed over' 351 4v clevo, along with C4 box and 9" rear. It's a pro-street project with a full frame and all the usual pro st bits and pieces.
It was bought unfinished and should keep me busy through at least one, but probably two cold Scottish winters!!!! Roll on.
I'll probably be picking a few 'clevo' brains over the coming months.............!!!!!!!!!!!
Engine spec: 351c 4v 030 over , stock heads with 3 angle grind, crane commander cam, offy inlet (dual plane-maybe not enough for the carb???), holley 750dp (mech sec) + velocity stack, mallory dizzy, accel super coil, 12:1 comp, forged pistons, h/v oil pump+drive, oil restrictor kit, re-sized rods + arp bolts.
Does anyone know roughly how much this lot should put out?? Flywheel or RW. Engine is fresh with new crank, timing chain etc etc etc.
G/box is C4 with TCI high stall converter (2600 to 2800ish).
Cheers in advance and och aye the noo!!!!! ;o)
This ones even lighter so I'm hoping for good things!!!
Fibreglass front wings, bonnet front panel, sills, rear wings, bootlid and rear panel. Plan is ally bulkheads, floor, tubs etc.
2 seater (fibreglass seats), frame mostly tubed. 15x15's with m/t's on a 5 link out back so traction should theoretically be good.
Don't know spec of cam though!
