Good eye here Jim, it's my buddies jr. Dragster he got for his daughter. And I am going back next week to do some more welding when the engine shows up. So I will snag a pic while I'm there.

Got the engine assembled, will finish the welding tomorrow on the frame hopefully. If I don't make the deadline it's cause I decided to put a Tav2 converter on it. And that's a lot more than my clutch was gonna be !

The 2nd Pic is the seal of approval from DIY !

Got the header and it's definitely got something wrong ! Haha like a serious fire hazard.

If your referring to the header is supposed to face down then yes it is. The cylinder head is normal.

Yeah it's either buy a clutch and not like it or do it right and wait on some more checks. That and I'm moving from okc to Norman right now so I haven't had the time to go actually work on it like I should be. It will be finished but not til after the due date sometime.

What else would have two fat shoes like that with almost nothing in between..... ? Only a dragster........


Man, after looking back, your tires are not that tall.... Just run a cent clutch for now. You'll be ok..... It will give you a chance to master doing wheelies before you get the TC.......
