Congrats Kelly

Post #1 by AzCoupe » Sat Mar 14, 2009 3:33 pm

The Southwest Nostalgia Drags & Standard 1320 races are today. I was planning to go, and watch Will and Kelly race, as this is the second time out with the new motor and the ported aluminum head. Gene and Crosley are also there with their cars. However I had some computer problems, and had to spend the entire morning on the phone with McAffe. Got the computer fixed, but it's to late to head to the track, so they are going to keep me posted on the results.

That being said, Kelly just called and reported the results from her last qualifing run.
With 15 lbs of boost, she ran a..... are you ready for this..... 10.89@122mph. :checks:
Congrats Kelly on the Best Ever ET. That's awesome.

WOW... :shock: That's awesome. I never made it to the track as my driver side glass broke off the mechanism in the full down position this morning and I had no clue how to fix it in time to make the race...since you cannot race unless your windows are rolled up. Bummer... :cry:

Kelly's best ET until today was a 10.95, which she did exactly one year ago at this same race.

I just heard they sheared off the cam dowel again, so she's done for the weekend. She was chasing down a BB Chevy when it let go, coasted the last 1000 feet, and still ran an 11.30 thru the traps. :shock:

Um ... so like ... if she coasted the last 1000 feet and still managed an 11.30 ET ... that would mean ... that she was probably on her way to beating that 10.89, right?

I sure hope they figure out how to fix that dowel pin problem.

I believe AZCoupe mis-typed the 1000 foot coast comment. Kelly was running the car down and the Falcon nosed over about 3/4 track as it appeared to me.

The first pass she made was a 11.26 as I recall. In the stage lines where I stood about half the guys watching the car near crapped them selves when the ET and MPH popped up on the sign. :lol:

It's a perfect combo to surprise guys : an inline 6 , quiet turbo , female driver... the combo gets the job done very well!

Oh for the record, the guy she had to chase down was in a 65' Belvedere with a 426" Wedge motor :D

Thanks everyone! We had some fun this pass weekend!
Here's a basic rundown....

The first two passes on Friday night TnT, we were trying out a larger carb, a Holley 600 double pump and also trying the sheetmetal Hogan intake again. To keep the story short, and using Kelly's words..."the Hogan sucks!" LOL! So off it came and on went our old and trusty Holley 450 and the Classic Inlines intake.
Times for Friday night went from 14's to a 12.15 with the carb/intake swap. The reason we were only running low 12's was because I only had 11lbs. of boost tuned in there and the track couldn't hold any more power! Kelly spun the tires WAY passed the 60' mark! :shock:
Her 60' times = 1.71, 2.12, 2.15, 2.21....can you tell the track was getting colder?

So Sat. morning:
First pass....same exact tune up as Friday.....11.27@119. 60' = 1.60
Second pass.....more boost this time, 15lbs......10.89@122. 60' = 1.52
Third pass....same tune...................................11.13@119. 60' = 1.54

First round.
Kelly was racing the Belvedere that 82F100 noted above. He was dialed in at 11.85 to Kelly's 11.10. So a 426" Wedge motor was being chased down by a 250 Inline 6! :shock:
By looking at the time slip it looks like she would've covered her dial-in just fine. Her 1000' time was 9.15 sec. On her 11.13 pass earlier her 1000' was 9.20.
But right at the 1000' mark the car nosed over and we had to tow her back to the pits. Her time was an 11.27@108.
So the troubleshooting began. The dizzy rotor wasn't turning, so I pulled the dizzy....seemed OK. The gear looked good and the pin wasn't sheared. Turned the motor over while looking down the dizzy hole.....the cam isn't turning! So we naturally thought that we sheared another camshaft dowel pin. I didn't have a balancer puller so I just removed all of the timing cover bolts and was able to move it enough that I could see the timing chain....or lack there of.
We were done for the weekend!
So yesterday, back at home, I pulled the balancer and timing cover.
The chain is broke, the cover is missing a piece and is cracked, the crank sprocket is missing a tooth, and the cam sprocket is excessive worn.
My nemisis beat me again! :evil: I HATE the 250 timing set!!!
So this timing chain only lasted 15 passes and about 50 miles of street driving.
But overall the weekend went very well! I saw Crosley in the lanes, but I was never able to say HI!
We were very busy in our pits talking to people about the Inline 6 and our favorite FordSix website. :D
That should do it I think!
Later,
Will

I think it would be worth it to see if you can get a custom double roller made for the 250.. would be cheaper at this point and you won't be spending half the weekends sitting in the stands.

Congrats and way to show those v8 guys what an american I6 can do.
Now if the supra and turbo BMW guys would learn to respect us..... :P

Got to meet Kelly and Crosley

Post #19 by pikesan » Sun Mar 22, 2009 12:31 am

It was my pleasure to meet and interview Kelly at the Speedworld race. A friendly and interesting lady to say the least. I'll post the blog of what I learned soon. Here's a sneak peak of the pics I took:

I'll let you know when the story's finished. Sometimes I can be a little slow! I love the "426 wedge motor chased down" comment. I'll have to use that!

I also met Crosley. Falcon people are cool....
Kelly, PM me if you wanted the higer res pictures. I sent all my pictures but these to Speedworld to post on their website and in their magazine. Oops! Glad to hear you guys all had a good (and safe) time.

I know there has been getting 250 double roller chains made but seems like a gear drive set could be made?


Chasing down a 426 wedge?

Time to pull the "PURSUIT" stickers and apply the "INTERCEPTOR" stickers. :D

As I recall the 250 timing chain deal , the chain length is off a half of link with the current HP chain available for the gears? I am sure my memory is faulty on that.

Will addressed the areas in the short block with the deck water holes plugged off and the much better connecting rods

It was the wide one. 1" wide.
I've tried them both over the years and they both suck!

I have a stocker cam right now being turned down to match that of a SBF in the snout area. The cam dowel pin will be the same size and direction (longitudinally) as the SBF. So the dowel will be into the first bearing "race". Should be much stronger!
Now we'll just have to see about the chain. There's a place here in Tucson that makes custom chains, so after I mock it up, I'll take it to them and see if they can do something with it.

If all goes well, I'll make up a few of them!

Also while we're on this subject. We pulled Kelly's motor because there was just to much metal in the oil due the chain eating the sprocket.
The bearings definately did their job by absorbing the fragments without hurting the crank to bad. I am going to have it polished again, but just for the rod journals. The mains looked fine.
The good news is that we got a good look at both the new Manley rods and the new piston design. The piston burn area is SO much better than before. The "stock" style forgings would burn on the spark plug side of the piston. Now the burn is much more toward the middle of the cyl. So that'll help with cyl. wall issues. And the 4.6L rods seem to be wearing just fine. No obvious issues with them. Two of the rod bearings didn't have any metal shavings in them at all, so I used them to check the rods. I expected a little wear on the outside of bearing due to the extra side clearance that they have. But no such issue.
So after the timing chain correction, we'll just stick in some new bearings and put her back together.

And Pikesan,
It was good to meet you! The pics look great! I'm sure Kelly will chime in here!
Later,
Will

Thanks for the compliments guys!!!
Actually, Will only gets to drive the car on the street or up the return road to warm it up for me. I only know wide open and coasting down the return road, so Will has to keep us out of trouble on the streets. :D
Hopefully once we get the timing chain situation fixed we'll be running mid-10s without breaking something. Then we can let Will work on his projects!!!
