Thank you Jeff,I'll try that for the others.I went in to the camera and set for a less quality picture and it worked.This is where i'm at,And i'm looking for some honest opinions on what I did.Be cruel if you like I want to learn.

Charlie.

Here are some more pics. some of these are of what I had to make inorder for the block to work right.The one is a plate for the starter so it could be moved over to where it would have been if it was a V8.The other one is a spacer and a adapter so it can be bolted to the tranny right.The 4 cyl belhouseing area is actually 1/4 shorter then the 8 cyl so if it wasn't used the crank would be too close to the tanny.

I remember years a ago in SS and drag illustrated I read an article from wilson manifolds. They used to have great tech before steve collison passed away and they sshut down the magazine.
It was about grinding in the intake tract and how a rough surface would helo Keep the fuel in the air through light turbulence on the bottom and this kept the fuel up off the floor. This was back when I did N/A stuff and I gave a crap. Now I just FORCE it all in there.LOL

I wouldnt thnk so but I had that problem on a pontiac 350 once.

Blew out the botyms of the gaskets. Couldnt even tell really until it came apart. I know this will come as a surprise to those who read my posts but I use RTV around all my intake ports on the gaskest.
VERY VERY thin, I know I should buy stock in The companies that make RTV.

One thing you learn in TURBO land RTV used correctly can be your best friend.

Helps keep things from MOVING all over the place.
A good mating surface is HUGE too.
I like to run a Flat file down any sealing surface every time I put it together and then I check it with a straight edge and a flash light just to be sure.

Looks good so far. The sand dragger is COOL. Be sure to take a look at the areas in the runner toward the plenum. Make sure that they are not smaller than the exit you opened. And like Jeff pointed out, leave it rough like 40 to 60 grit on a sanding roll. With no major divots. up toward the plenum.

louie, if you ever get the chance to jot down the specs./equipment used on that sand dragster it would give great reading material. Love the looks of that thing. If you could get some close ups of the motor it would great also. Thanks. Mark L

Yeah that thing is cool,he lives in Middle sex N.J.How far are you from there Chris?
After I finish the porting i'll cut the runners off the other side.I think I might contour the whole side of the plenum from where it was cut off to the runners that are being used,Instead just squaring if off.Kind of like a turtle.
What do you guys think?
