The previous owner had the adapter made back in the 80's. It is aluminum, and bolts to the back of the engine, then the trans bolts to it. Im not sure why he used the 727.

first time out in Aug.09 ran 10.98@58.59 , This past saturday we ran a best of 10.29@61.91... 60' went down 1/10th of a sec from my previous fastest time. I think there is a 9.99 in there somewhere, maybe smaller diameter tires in the back, a distributor recurve, still had about about 3/8 tank of gas and the back seat with a few things in the trunk.could probably trim out 40 lbs plus of back seat and carpet, front and rear bumper and tools in the trunk. plus will be building an air box with an inlet to the grill. yeah and a good cool night I think breaking into the 9s is in reach.

my old 200 ran a 11.677 on the 1/8th mile with the stock head and stock cam. my new time is 11.201 @ 60.77 with my new 200 tri-power. i did 2 passes, the first was manually shifted and the 2nd was auto 1-2 then i held 2nd to the finish

my reaction time was very bad on the first pass
R/T=1.478
60'=2.838
330=7.458
1/8=11.332
mph=57.50

R/T=.608
60'=2.713
330=7.353
1/8=11.201
mph=60.77

i think my combo should be able to do way better than this, i need to work on my technique for sure. :? my combo is in the signature

Leave as soon as you see the last yellow.
If that is not quick enough, deep stage by turning off the top pre-stage bulb.
More air pressure in the front tires will help too.

thanks for the tips, i raced the car only once before and im still a newbie when it comes to racing, i now know that i need a stall converter if i ever want to get some decent times, I know my engine should be able to do much better, i also plan on installing f6 emulsion tubes in the carbs, i don't think that will give much performance but i think it will make tuning easy.

My 3040 pound wagon with its stock bottom end, stock cam has run 2.438 in the sixty foot being a 3 speed manual and 3.5 stock rear, my way of shifting the weight is small diameter tyres on my stock rims, take my big 15’s off, and i have 90/10 shocks in front, i roll in the water and drop the clutch at probably 2500 rpm, don’t spin for very long, on the tree i rev mine to probably 3000-3500 rpm and drop the clutch, mine is shifted on the column still. I have the 2V head now and probably rd 30-40 more hp so i will have to redo my startling procedure, will need a bigger tyre, i have always only tired my car for the smallest tyre without wheelspin, so my 185/70/14s are great for the old log setup, that was all with the 1.5” log head and stock Stromberg carb, DUI dissy and modified extractors. Enjoy your racing guys. PS I have done 0.014 reaction times and run as close to 0.002 to a dial in and i don’t even have a tacho, i shift by speed in the gears, best with log head 11.74

I am having the best season of my racing career. Yesterday I won my second race in the last month, this one being the National Dragster Challenge Race at Milan. I must be inspired by The Holy Spirit as I have not had a light slower than .025 in my last 24 rounds and the car has been deadly consistent. I have been tinkering with seemingly minor tweaks - like carb tuning, front shock rates, front tire pressure, etc. - and arrived at the car's sweet spot. (Only took 15 years)
Here's my Wally Jr:

On an even happier note Saturday was my grandson's birthday and his mom arranged for him and I to go flying in her friend's 1946 Taylorcraft. I want my sportplane pilot's license now.

Congratulations and good luck getting your sport certificate.
I would recommend going a bit future and get a private certificate. The added training I think is well worth it and opens up a lot more opportunities. I got mine this year a it's one of the best things I've ever done.

68 mph is 10.45 sec on the 1/8 or 16,30 secs at a speed of at least 83.98 MPH.

1.56 conversion factor. NHRA uses 1.6. See http://cochise.uia.net/pkelley2/eight-to-quarter.htm Generally, 7 secs = 10.92 secs; 8 secs = 12.48 secs; 9 secs = 14.04 secs ;10 sec = 15.60 secs ;11secs = 17.16 secs.

Lincs200 timecard was actually a 330 foot time card; it got on 13 psi

My next time slip will be much better as long as I can keep traction. I have reinslled my 90hp nitrous jets and I will be running the water/meth injection to allow for more ignition advance. I have also been tweaking the carbs a little bit. :beer:

Just returned from the NHRA Div. 3 E.T. Finals at Indy. Made it to the fourth round. Every time I parked the car a crowd formed by it. I'm the only Super Pro competitor in the Midwest Division that runs a Ford six. Several folks said it was the most unique ride; a little boy said it was his favorite.
