  1. Tim, i'm always blown away by how far you have taken your machining talents!!!! your work is extraordinary!!!!!!
  2. whilest surfing the net i came upon (i hope) some inspiration.
  3. major undertaking the Paul. while i'm sure you're totally capable...i'll wish you luck anyway!!! can't wait to see it!!!!
  4. spectacular fit and finish Tim!!! can't believe how tight those tolerances are......WOW!!!
  5. Glad to her all is well Tim!!!!! hope to see you soon!!
  6. it's a shame that the rear will be under the car Tim. You AMAZE me brother!!!!!
  7. when can we expect to see the manufacturers logo on the cover???? and which one will you choose????😁😁
  8. looks FANTASTIC Tim!!!!! the Ramchargers would be jealous!!!
  9. looks like you're getting that uv printer dialed in really well Paul. your parts are just fantastic looking!!! keep up the excellent work!!!
  10. i realize that John. the plugs could go on either side of any of those combustion chambers or put dual plugs in each combustion chamber. the reference was to the fact that it was indicated that your head / spark plug spacing didn't work with that v-12 block when in fact it does. that is what i was pointing out.
  11. i would say my "edumacated" guess, was pretty close.
  12. i can seriously appreciate the amount of labor you poured into that board!!!!! can't wait to see the end product, Tim...time to let the chips fly!!!!!
  13. WOW Paul!!!!! you're parts are looking incredible. Great job on designing and creating them. can't wait to see them all together and on a build!!!!!!!
  14. we also did a "one off" liberty 5 spd. trans. and shifter in 1/8 scale to back the monster up.
  15. good luck on the 1:1 build. perhaps we'll meet up cruisin' somewhere.
  16. just eyeballin' it. i think you could get pretty close. give me some real dimensions and i'll make an accurate representation.
  17. the plug spacing could certainly be done the way it is in the model if so desired. simply grind the cam to the correct opening sequence, use the correct rockers and move the plugs to the same side of the valve layout. here are 5 small block chevy heads. 1.std. sbc wedge 2. sbc buick symmetrical port wedge 3. sbc symmetrical port splayed valve 4. sb2 mirror image 5. sbc hemi head all these heads bolt to a sbc block. all use different intake and exhaust locations, valve angle and position (wegde, splayed ,hemi) layouts, rocker arm layouts, pushrods, cam shafts and spark plug locations. everything your saying that doesn't work on your version of the v-12 could be changed to work for this design if so desired.
  18. 3 pedal cars ad trucks are the best Francis!!! keep up the amazing work.
  19. you can come build my engines any day Tim. beautiful man!!!!!
