The motor is mostly done, here is the front shot. How ever I did press a water pump apart and it will be going to chrome along with the pulleys.

I must say the motor has a bit of coin invested but it looks bad ass for a binder power plant.

Can't wait until this thing runs. I've been squirreling parts away to someday do the 304 crank in a 392 thing kind of like you. With good knowledge of how a normal sv behaves, I'm anxious to hear your report of how this one runs. Keep up the posts!

It'll run darn good.

hear it run on youtube

It had less blingy chrome then, just a 500cfm 2bbl, and no roller-tip-rockers, but you can hear it at 6300rpm (where the valves floated) in that video, both from outside and from inside the cab. Same engine, about two overhauls ago.

Pulling duty in Robert's hot-rod is like putting a thoroughbred out to pasture, with the occasional duty of taking the grandkids for pony rides.

..unless Robert and inbred decide they're both taking their toys to the bar..

Ok here's the disclaimer, I already posted on the bp. This is the motor Tom companioned in "little devil" it is a proven power plant. Tom had rebuilt it and I bought it from to get my 34 on the road sooner. Tom is building a fire breathing 392 for his new chassis. I have a bad ass 304/392 that I have a blower for but the coin and r&d have keep it slow going.

And now Tom what a great retirement, I'm sure I will let it eat on occasion. But in the mean time it will be Sunday dressed and always the bell of the ball.

Time for an update. I got my stainless back from the chrome shop today, man these guys are it when it comes to what they do. Here is a first look at the color and grill shell, I had the stainless mesh on the grill powder coated to help the chrome pop.

Here are the original head light trim rings, bare in mind these where made in 1934. They look great, they were beat to a pulp before they went to the chrome shop.

Thanks there was a lot of soul searching for a color and I thought the old school demanded black but I also knew the 1934 cab was rough so white should be classic. Here is the frame it is back from powder coat, we used a hammered finish to hide so of the finish I was to lazy/hurried to do.

Here is a detail shot of one of the conduits that are installed inside the boxing of the frame, this will make the plumbing and wiring very clean. You can also see one of the cab mounts that is threaded in the frame. I will have to run a tap through all the threads and inserts, the powder guys didn't mask them

Here the windshield frame it has two inches chopped out and I had it powder coated also, sense it will open and close I was concerned that paint would be easily damaged. I already sent the support brackets out for chrome. I still need to come up with a seal and have the windshield cut and installed. I had a chat with the guy I have do all the tint work for me and I am thinking about doing a tint on the windshield. I am not real sure, I don't see driving a lot at night but it would be a little dicey with a dark tint.

Well I am moving along with the hotrod at a good pace. Here I got the front axle installed, well have to fine tune the "hair pins" but the frame and texture look very nice.

Here is a detail of the spring hanger on the front axle. The mount is on the cross member, and has a center mount hole like the mount plates on a parallel leaf set up. You can also see the detail on the mount, very nice metal work, if I do say so myself.

Here is a shot of the motor mounts, these are over the top. Jeff can hook you up with a set, I'm sure if they will stand up to what I put them through rock crawlin then the hotrod will be a walk in the park. You can also see the detail on the powder coat, the hammered finish really hides the age of the frame.
