      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    How does a chopped Vicky with a 409 become a Dodge?

    The Lotus 49 is the most beautiful and pure automobile ever made. Awhile back, someone asked the question if money were no object, what car would you buy--- here's mine!

    OK, now you are just showing off...

    Actually, after a bit of searching, I found this:  http://www.gasenginemagazine.com/gas-engines/a-brief-history-of-hercules-engines
    Descendant of Hercules and Hall-Scott it looks like. Later Molines used Hercules Diesel engines. Oliver used the Waukesha.

    For the I-6 engine, it was most likely a Waukesha like the Oliver and Minneapolis-Moline gassers for the bigger tractors, since White owned those brands in the 60's-early 70's.
    For distributor location on the giesel, I'd suspect it was in the same spot as the injection pump on diesels.

    I know nothing about it, but the concept of using a diesel to start with, then use LP/propane, it would literally last forever. Tractor pullers convert diesel to spark ignition alcohol burners for the same reasons-- high boost pressure longevity!

    Looks like Sour Kraut carried the Mo'luminum conversion, but it is listed as sold out.
     Thanks for the info, at least I will know what to look for.

    Does anyone make a conversion kit for a 9300 to fit this?

    I don't know what the deal is. I was at Hobby Lobby, and they had a coupe on the shelf. Went to Michael's, and they had the roadster. I didn't buy either one. Perhaps I should have, and put them on Evil bay to gouge someone?

    While we're at it, so was a Cosworth DFV.  I'll take 2!

    You're welcome, Chris. Thank you for the correction on the steering wheel. The boat belongs to my boss. His father had it, and several years after he passed, my boss restored it. Over 5 figures in chrome on that tub! The kit engine has some V-6 Hemi, but this boat has a 327 AMC (converted to marine use by Gray Marine) that originally had two 2bbl sidedraft Carters. Now has a Holley 4bbl.

    Century Coronado
    Some 1:1 pics of a Century Coronado. The kit is different in a couple areas-- the prow is different with the "pig nose", the back seat upholstery detail is totally off, and inconsistent with the other seats, and the dash layout needs to be scraped off and sanded. Thankfully, the gauge decals appear to be accurate. This particular boat does not have the hardtop.  Also, the real steering wheel came from a '59 Lincoln. The kit piece is nowhere close. Enjoy!
