    Not much progress. Spent a few hours today moving things around, taking inventory, etc.

    TIL: I have more NOS model A parts than I know what to do with. Counted about 50 clutch disks, a dozen carb rebuild kits, an equal number of carbs, manifolds, a few blocks, and a few transmissions.







    more random parts:

    Didn't do much with the car today. Pulled the old more and start stripping some components: alt, water pump, lower pulley. pulled off the bell housing, and clutch parts. Motor had been siting out for quite sometime, and found a rats nest inside the bell housing. Clutch internals were all rusted so that needs replacing. Also. verified the motor can be turned over by hand.
    Going to rebuild water pump and alt. thats about it for now.

    Do you have a pic of massive supercharger? Need to figure out what it is, and if its even usable for this project.

    Also… castings on heads show 462624, and google tells me they are POS. Heavy Iron heads, prone to cracking. Fun stuff.

    I think most weiands have the logo cast into the side of the blower case or next to the snout.

    Johnny is probably right. Especially after seeing the complete Detroit diesel engine with an identical one installed. I just searched 6-71 blower and found the weiands brand.

    Looks like a Detroit 6-71. Could be an 8-71 though.

    According to the internet, rule of thumb is that 6-71s have 3 ribs and 8-71s have 4 ribs.

    Looks almost identical to this "late style" detroit diesel 6-71. Whatever "late style" means.

    So will a Detroit diesel power this build now?
    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    Chris: "if this doesn't end up on the car, you're building it wrong"

    from what I've read, fairly easy to pair this up to a chevy. For as massive as it looks, it doesn't make a ton of boost. only looking at 5-7lbs of boost to be safe. Paired with the right cam and carb set up, about 350hp.

    this is going to be an awesome build.
    I am not a 14 year old girl, but I play one on the internet.

    I think long maybe a better word.

    Some people have expressed interest in helping. If anyone is around this weekend, probably going to put a few light hours in sat/sunday mornings, approx 8-10a. this weekends mission:

    • Set up clean area, shelving.

    • Strip chassis

    • disassemble front end

    • If i'm feeling ambitious, I may attempt to build a chassis stand (which means making sure the welder works!)


    PM or Text me for the address.


    Also, once the weather gets nice (or once I fix the pellet stove!) I think I may do monthly or bi-monthly cook out type things on Friday nights.... beer, music, meat and wrenching for who ever wants to show up.
