Yeah John! I want to see your engine build, then you will need to build a whole other car to put it in. It will keep you nice and busyy in all of your free time. 😆Joshua BParticipantAugust 27, 2018 at 8:53 pmPost count: 29
Think I am finally finished with building it. Now time for some driving. It is so much more quite with the interior in it. I also installed a 6 volt electric fuel pump under the tank. I have it wired to the ignition lock toggle so I can turn it on and off independently. It seems to work well. Turned it on and it fired right up after setting for 2 months.RustabusParticipantAugust 27, 2018 at 8:56 pmPost count: 803

Thanks John! You know how hard it is just to keep one. It’s a disease.
Check this one out Franz. Look at this Porsche aircraft engine I picked up this weekend. Unfortunately it is incomplete missing alot of the tin, a head manifold and carb. Originally they have 4 plug heads and I believe 36 Zenith NDIX carbs. Someone put a 356 head and 32 ndix carb on the one bank. It is set up for a dry sump and check out the lightened flywheel. Missing one of the original distributors as well. Look at the exhaust. This thing must have been loud. It is pretty cool and I am pretty stoked on getting itFranzKeymasterOctober 1, 2018 at 11:44 amPost count: 1537
Wow dude. That thing is fucking rad! Never even heard of anything like that. The distributor is neat. Factory dual plug tin too.
What is the story on the find?Joshua BParticipantOctober 1, 2018 at 10:00 pmPost count: 29
Thought you would like it. I got it from a friend that was cleaning out stuff he wouldn’t get to out of his garage.FranzKeymasterOctober 2, 2018 at 8:39 amPost count: 1537
Do you know what kind of aircraft it came from? experimental?Joshua BParticipantOctober 2, 2018 at 11:59 amPost count: 29
Here is some info on the engines. I guess only about 100 of this variation were built I was told that this one belonged was either the original or the back up engine for a plane. I think he said the used the best parts for the engine in the plain. This was years ago, so I have no idea who owned the plane or which plane it was.
