This 16 HP Vanguard should make close to 30 hp.. good enough for 150 foot straights..

Well .. I have been working on this years mower.. that's why I haven't been on the board much..

I crashed and destroyed last years mower so I have been working hard to build a new one..

No Mopar parts in it..  But it will be painted like Richard Petty Charger.. Petty blue and STP red...

I thought I would share it with you guys..

I guess this makes me a full blown redneck. 

This is my WOO supermodified for the 2009 racing season


This is the making of the frame that goes inside the stock frame..


























Seat Support.


Side view of the steering and the dash board












This is after the fenders where extended and some of the holes were filled with steel








Hood mounted.


This is where the primary and secondary chains meet. I had a machine shop make this piece to join  W and X weld on sprocket together.








This is how it's mounted on the chassis.


This is the steering. It would have been too difficult to go over the engine, and since I wanted a specific angle on the steering wheel, this is what I came up with.




The fuel tank mounted.




This is the making of the headers.














This just shows the wheels turned to show the Ackerman is incorporated into the steering design.










This will be the finished color. Petty Blue.


The first time the mower has been outside.




Battery mount is done.. there will be a hoop bumper behind it to keep it from being hit..





I have the primary and secondary chains on.. and finished the tensioners.









I still have to make the bumper for the back



The hood scoop was made by cutting two strips and shortening the side piece from a Ford Lawn Tractor and welding them back together. If someone says it isn't a tractor piece I can say... it really came from one..



Here's a shot before I started making the chain guards.

Has anyone done a 4 speed conversion on their C.. Will any other bodies pedals work or are the C's ?

Remember that it has 32 inch tall tires on a  16 inch tim... that realy drops the ratio down.

I'm gonna put a tach in and go for a drive to see what kinda revs it turns..

So do you just mic the crank  and slide in the new bearings?...

Doesn't seem too hard to do.. and I might as well slide in a new pump while I'm there.. I don't really need more pressure.. just more volume... keep that oil moving..

.... I was thinking that also...

It doesn't look like it would be much fun swapping a motor in an RV... do you have to take the motor out the door?

Can you not drop the pan and do a bearing swap or pull the crank without removing the rest of the rotating assembly? I know they can do a bearing swap on Semi's without removing the engine..

I assume the crank would need to get ground as the excess clearances of the bearing and the crank is making the low oil pressure..

That why I thought maybe with a high volume pump I can at least keep the oil flowing better than the stock unit..

BTW.. I got the Windsor out for a drive today and I loved every minute of it..

I climbed the back wheel of another racer and rolled the tractor over. It got twisted and flattened..

..  I know these motors don't get good mileage.. but 11.5 mpg is pretty bad.. I get 16.5 mpg with the Windsor with a Big Block

Hi guys, it's been a while.. working on the Racing Mower again.. I wrecked last years mower in  the last race of the year, so I had to build a new one.

Anyways... I bought this last year..



It has a 360, with a thermoquad, dana 60 with 4.10 gears.

This issue is the mileage.  It gets 11.5 MPG.  I shouldn't expect anything great but this is what I'm thinking of doing to help mileage.

Newer intake something like a Edelbrock highrise dual plane. or adding a carb spacer. Something to help the bottom end. Maybe switching the Thermoquad for a newer Edelbrock /Carter AVS carb.

Adding headers.

Dual exhaust.

Recurved Distributor.

Do you think any of these changes will help?

Also.. after it gets hot, the oil like flickers at idle. I'm wondering if I install a high volume pump this might help the oil pressure issue. The engine has 130 000 miles on it.

I'm running the 383 Magnum cam in my 361 and I am very happy with it... with the Points, M-1 Dual Plane and AVS with the 2.76 gears I got 16 MPG...

I want some of that.. Let me know when you can get some on the Canuk side...

Could you put it in a spray bottle.. and spray it on an area to remove rust.. or does it have to soak?...

He said he would like the 70 - 72 intake because it has no EGR...  He doesn't want an EGR intake...

My step father restored his 1971 Dodge Pick-up a few years ago.. and is now swapping in a 1969 318 in place of the slant six.

He needs a 1970-1972 318 2 barrel intake. He says he runs the newer water pump and that he needs to new intake so he can put on the bypass hose...

I live in Southern Ontario Canada.

If you can help let me know...

If you park it there... someone might want to buy it...
