Re: Autolite 1100 Venturi Mod

If you are to big on the bore you can buy a piece of 1.5in thin wall and cut through one wall on a table saw down the length until you remove enough material to compress it and force it inside the 1.25in tube.

Re: Autolite 1100 Venturi Mod

Couldnt you build the venturi body thickness up with a high temp putty, then bore it to the desired size?

JB Weld and Permatex both make a fuel tank repair putty that might work.

You would retain the needed bell shape on the top and bottom.

Re: engine rebuilding

As much as you want to spend.

My head will cost around $400. Thats new everything + larger valves.

Cam and associated parts will run $250+.

Block work $500.

Rolling assembly, I dont know yet but Im guessing $400-$500, depending on if I want new rods.

My guestimate is $2500 + exhaust + carb.
