japs hit the water jacket all the time intentionally
and epoxy them as the inlet doesnt need water so much
with all the fuel air at big cfm colling them down.

There is also jbweld and HTS 2000 brazing alloy rods
that work great and stronger the jb or other epoxies

Thats tough to lose by so little but great to hear the sohc
is still got the goods to keep up and lose by less than a second.
Is Gotch`s L series a grunter?

Was the ford a millington build or just Cossie special?
Love to see a Les Collins 280-320hp Ka headed L series
in a 1200 body to destroy those ahead of it.

Ah the good old days are gone where seat of the pants, sound, frequencies, exhaust smell and checking plugs was an art form for tuning by those refined for cars analog sensing humans.

I miss the old guys that could tune anything without a laptop or techno gadget.

Especially with supercharging no need for long runners
any kind of log style or basic plenum with no runners
will be sufficient.
The mini guys with inferior all iron A series engines
capacities from 1000cc to 1275cc are making 80-100kws
at the wheels with single 1 3/4 su fed AMR500 and other
small capacity superchargers with basic squirting h20/meth.

My butcher buddy used to get those rpm from old Corollas K series engines
before grenading themselves to make way for other junkyard $50 a pop 3K.
I was cruel but was often amusing to hear him coming over from miles away to
end up needing a tow home after arriving with cluttering bucket of shrapnel
or blowing up in front of our rental house.

Great links! yep single cammed iron heads that belonged on iron blocks
definitely not high tech all alloy blocks with no experience or durability
testing over time to expose its issues.

However Nissan or Datsun were amongst the best in the US but no more
My Jap father in law would not go near a new Nissan with a 10 foot chop stick
and neither would many Muricans these days.

I agree with you all in everyway and prob was a bit
too nice to say Chev made any kind of fantastic effort
However these Giants have so many departments Im sure
the guys in charge of the twin cam 16v all ally engine
had the best of intetions but let down by the rest of
the companys assembly, design and its politics.


There was no way Chev could make this complex engine reliable
in that era and believe it was the most ridiculous idea they ever had.

They prob got hold the japs were making twin cam headed
econoboxes so tried to offer more than them.
However also supplying the lesser version with an iron head!
was a totally wacked out move beyond stupidity.

Dodge did the same thing with the Slant 6 ten years earlier!!!!

Chev could have learnt from that but no and the same factory
that cast the flat 6 for the corvairs seems to be connected
to the worst cars ever made by Chev.

I think they looked amazing but take all you guys for your word
they sucked in every department.

Sure the idea of a 16v head all alloy engine was insanely courageous
but due to their usual world famous poor execution it ended as a joke.
