Re: Stroker choices?

I like my 331, solid lifter motor with cheap untouched aluminum heads. Makes 420 plus HP according to the ET calculators. I only have a 8,000 tach and it has sat on the 8,000 pin many times. More cubes would be better for the torque to get my 3,400 lb comet moving but if I was going bigger I would s...

Re: Dont lift no matter what!

I read an article about that incident. Apparently the throttle hung and running a magnito so it would not shutdown. Crazy ride. Watched a video today of a no prep/street outlaw car call Kong crash. Scary pictures of his helmet broken.

Re: what did you do to your comet today?

I cut my good hood. At one time I had a couple extras but was talked in to selling. Sold one to a kid that bought one of my comets. Here is a pic of the hole and the salad bowl air cleaner setup.

Re: what did you do to your comet today?

I drove my comet out of the shop so I could use the shop. It was around 38F, no choke on my Quickfuel carb, idled rough but started after 2 pumps. I only put 94 octane in my comet, quads and lawn mowers. They start anytime of year. I remember Roy and someone else complaining how how bad the Crites f...

Re: Engine bay room?

You can trim some of the shock tower yourself without a kit and without moving the suspension. I trimmed mine and wish I had cut more. I parted out a 65 comet that had a 351C in it. Shock towers were cut and had shortened control arms. No idea how it drove.
