"Baby Tractor" motor sounds good. Smile So, John and Franz, I'm asking.

As I finish my Super, I'm about ready to have Brandon build my Shorty motor.

The Super has a 1904. What is the dif between that and a 1914? :-k Would the 1914 help me pull wheelies? \:D/

Cost about the same to build?

1914cc is a 1600cc with the stock (85.5mm) piston bore opened up to 94mm. It's pretty much like assembling a stock engine other than a little machine work on the case and heads.

1904 is a small stroker crank with stock pistons. No or very little machine work/clearencing requied.

If you want to do wheelies, I'd go with a big engine. We always start with 94mm pistons/cylinders. A 82 or 84mm crank would make something like a 2276 or 2332cc. I'd go with dual 44 webers in a truck too (dellorto jet access would be a whore).

But don't listen to me. Let Brandon do his thing. He's probably has his own preferences and opinions.

Machine work money + stroker crank/chevy rod money = could have a 2332cc

Great ideas guys! Thank you!

Now I need to start thinking about wheelie bars and making sure the front suspension can handle the landings. #-o

Pan has been reblasted... and is possibly ready to paint... But Franz is going to give it a good look over before paint... maybe clean out some cable tubes..

work em and paint them L31 then paint the wide chrome strip same black as the wheels. Car will have to have the perfect low stance to pull that off.



Ok. I am back on this idea. But.....L31 with Chrome to match the body chrome.
