That's awesome...sounds like the motor really wakes up with the 3 carb setup. Except for that and the compression we have similar builds yet you are running almost a second quicker currently. Can you post your best timeslip?

HP , I'm estimating about 165 at the rear wheels , The weather at my Track was not the best for improvements , but I still was able to improve the ET to 15.54 ( a whole hundredth LOL ), but I did get the mph to 91.76 BUT givin the weather was Hot and Humid and I use My Brothers 302 66 Mustang as a gauge on track conditions Good or Bad Day ( I also build his engines and drivetrain ) and he was almost a 1/4 second slower than the week I ran the 14.55 @ 90.76 it was a good improvement , more to come.

Faron, you are getting close to the 13 second plateau.

Since you installed the converter the ET has improved.

However since your trap speed improved in the hot weather do you think you may be on the lean side since the heat improved your trap speed????

My personal opinion is that you need a more agressive camshaft with over .525" lift, 1.65 roller rockers & more exhaust duration due to the poor exhaust flow with the log head???

More differential gear to get your rpms at the eyes closer to 5K

You are a professional so i'm sure you will achieve your goal. Bill

Update , weather still not great and carbs still need adjusting/jetting , and I changed the Center carb , to a different 1101 it liked it but also was too lean on the mid track and top end , had a best 60ft of 1.915and , I ran a best of 14.39, on The Brakes hard , I bracket race so I took my best previous pass and looked at the number through the 1000 ft mark , and it looks like it would of ran a 14.29-31 if I had been able to stay in it and around 93/94 mph , Next week my track is closed for the IHRA Points Series ( what I race ) so I have 2 weeks to improve , found a Ton of ET and Power By backing off the total timing to 30 degrees its all in at 2350 , 13's are in site !!

David's 240 Anglia ran a best-to-date 14.85 @ 90+.

My Willys ran a best-to-date of 13.44.


Another great night out last Wednesday. Made a dozen passes in the Anglia. Mostly trying to get it to leave and run consistently. 14:87 @ 91 was the best with a stiff headwind, but the .489, .509, .521, .523, .523, .535, .565 RT lights (+.500 perfect) were a huge improvement.

Hopefully we'll make it out to a Nostalgia Drags outing in September with the fleet.

Superdave, You forgot the .507 on your last pass. I took some videos of the Anglia. I'll post them soon. We are hoping to run three cars at the Milan Nostalgia Drags in September if time and schedules permit.

For those who don't know Superdave is my son who lives in California. He comes east every summer and we get out his Anglia which he keeps at my place only once a year for some fun.

Love you SD.

Some here may already know , but Ive , put the Log head 255 Tri Power Engine , for sale , so the Best of 14.39 @91.76 in Hot air will stand for the immediate future , the Engine was not built to Bracket Race , its plenty tough , just not consistent enough, +or- a 10th on a run will make you the second place finisher in a 2 man race, If I do not sell it it Probably will go in my 62 Falcon Sedan Delivery ( as it was originally built for ) it will be in front of a T-5 and I am sure I will see what it does , but until then its for sale ( in another post ) thanks for encouragement from some, but I am in a points race at my track and I was able to get my low budget 351w together earlier than planned , its in now and working well 12.91@102.64 just 2 races in , expect 12.50's when sorted out , I love My 255 6 and had some people tell me i should not of switched , but as I said it was never planned that way , but was fun while it lasted , thanks Faron

No times to post here as I am not a drag racer but a sports car racer. I run my 65 Mustang in SCCA Solo 2 or otherwise known as Auto Cross. Just thought some of you guys would find what I have done to the engine and car interesting.

1965 Mustang Notchback Coupe
250 inline 6
170 head
adjustable rockers
double dampened valve springs
Silid lifter cam
Hooker Dual Exhaust Header
Mallory YC Series Dual Point Distributor
Offenhauser Intake Adapter with 3 Autolite 1100 series Carbs
13.75:1 Compression Pistons
Aluminum Flywheel
11" Clutch
Close Ratio 4 speed
9" rear end from a 57 Fairlane Station Wagon
4.11 Detroit Locker

Never had the car on the drag strip. The suspension is set up for the turns with the SCCA. Might be interesting to see what it would do though. Not even sure what my horse power is. All I know is it seems to have more than my newer SVT Cobra.

I made the road trip to SpeedWorld today.

After several changes the past few months and no track time, I finally got to the drag strip.

My Falcon ran a 15.65 off the trailer, it has never run that quick. Previously it ran a 15.70 , but I could never back that up.

Today It ran 15.49 at 86.79 mph.... a few runs later it ran a 15.44 at 85.83 mph. I made no jet changes or timing adjustment at the track , it was running good, so I left it alone

The car sounds slightly different with the new collector setup I built. Previous header setup was 3 into 2 , now it is 3 into 2 into 1 ... stil sounds like an angry chain saw, just different.

Not to bad a mild pump gas 200 CID engine

New billet metering block is on the carb.. I tried a similar jet setup the carb guy posted for your car Gene. My engine would hardly idle or run . I guess the different nozzles affects something? My carb has stock nozzles in the venturi . My meter block is in near stock configuration at this point per the Quick Fuel web site. i did jet the carb down slightly from what I was running last year

Also ... on the header collector, I had a brain fart on the previous post. The header is a 6 pipes into 2 collector design. I changed it to a 6 into 2 into 1 collector. I built a collector add on that merges the two 2.5 inch collector tubes into one 3 inch collector.

Guess I need a larger cam or high ratio rocker arms , bigger valves in the head (mine are stock) and , and , and

I wonder if a bigger jet in the 1100 would help, I know stock is pretty small and leans out alot at higher rpm's. but you got up to 60mph is LESS than 20 SECONDS!! that's good :thumbup:

I bet it would. I plan on getting the aluminum head with a 2v carb in a few months, also I want to swap out the rear end soon. So this was just preliminary testing to see what the mostly stock setup would do. 8)

Finally got to the track this year with a much improved time from last years 16.73 @ 79.09

Now 16.371 @ 81.43

Improvements: ET street radials, sub frame connectors, better jetting on carbs, cold air intake
I think there is still a little more room for improvement

I've not run my Falcon in several months.

I added a fresh air intake that pulls air in from right side head light opening. I removed the headlite assembly.

The car ran a 15.342 at 87.69 mph. I can tell the engine likes more air, it sounds better, pulls a little harder the last half of the track.

I only made 2 runs at Speedworld last night. Odd how that place can go to a cluster #@*&@ with delays. The scoreboard still sux , not working correct

Wow, that's an awesome time...congrats! Got any pics of the fresh air setup? Did you use a carb hat?

My 1962 Falcon ran a best of 15.18 at 87.77mph today at SpeedWorld. My fresh air intake from the headlite seems like a winner to get air into the log head a little easier.

Unfortunately electrical gremlin got me. I noticed my volt gauge was lower than normal on the 2nd run... then it was fine on the 3rd run ...... then low again. I think the alternator is going bad. I checked connections under the hood, that did not help so far. Will have the alt tested if further home tests dont show the problem

Back in the years 67 and 68 at York US 30 Dragway.
200 67 Mustang Sprint, 3 speed , 3.20 gears, 775 x 14 tires (i think), adjustable rockers, carb from a 240, open exhaust. Possibly some other cheep mods. I would sell trophys I won for money to go back the next week to race. Still was in HS money was limited. My dad's car he didnt know I was racing it at that point in time.
Ran P stock later rule changes move the car to Q stock (possibly Q to P). Times were between 14.2 and 13.96 depending on how it hooked up that day.

I ran a 15.17 today. Odd though as some guy(me) ran his Falcon too low on fuel and the engine sputtered some the last couple hundred of feet to the traps.

Also, I shifted 1-2 at 5800 and run 2nd gear to near 6k RPM

Perhaps I need to lean the jetting out some?

Check your plugs and see how they look?

What did you have to do to get the 727 to bolt up to the six? Why not a 904?

Well done.
