Beautiful!
Whose studs did you use?

Break in on the dyno? What numbers are you expecting?

Just a work of art and perfection. That owner is a lucky person to receive one of your engines.

Damn Henry! You need to put a warning at the beginning of posts like this. I had kids in the room with me and they almost saw the pictures of this raw sexiness that you posted.

Looks like a good solid day or two of assembly there!!

Curious, what magic goo did you put on oil return tube o-rings and also the o ring behind the camshaft retaining plate?

The "magic goo" is Dow 55 o-ring lubricant. Experience shows us that Dow 55 is a exceptional product for building these engines because it lubricates the o-ring for ease of assembly and as the engine heats up, the chemical properties of this Mill spec lubricant causes the seal to swell slightly to increase surface contact and increase "crush resistance".


Thank you all for the kind words.
As much as I enjoy sharing our process, the real purpose of the post was to show the readers that we use the exact techniques that I advocate on this forum.
Some people have suggested that I post here simply to sell our parts and as much as I appreciate the sales, helping Pelicans build the best engine you can is actually our goal.

The fan shroud is a replica of the factory Amber racing shroud. Sometimes the computer distorts the tint.

We don't work on the cars so we rarely have pictures of the finished project.
If this customer chooses to send me a picture, I'll post it with his permission.

I like the jet nuts you are using on the carb flanges. What are they 12mm across the flats?

The Jet nut on the intake manifold is a 8x1.25 with a 10mm head. It's one of the few nuts that fit the PMO manifold.
The nut we like for mounting the carburetor is a tall 8x1.25 with an 11mm head. The tall nut makes for easy access.
We have a kit that includes 12 Jet nuts, 12 tall nuts and 12 an washers.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing.

I especially like the stainless braided cam oil lines.

Why the single air filter? Won't that affect the HP?
