    Yeah, it should make 1,000 for sure....950 with a really safe tune.

    When it was 850 on the first pull, we knew there was a problem. -Al

    Jackie, the block has been done with unbushed .904 lifter bores. Camshaft is a 308/318 @ .050 with .805/.780 lift on 114 lobe centers. The previous lifters were Crowers and the new ones are Morel. No...

    Jackie, the car it's in can be run in Top Sportsman (heads up with a 6.00 flat 1/4 mile index) or what's called a Quick 16 (16 fastest qualifiers, no breakout, first one to the finish line wins)....

    This week, we dyno'd this 585 inch big block Chevy. Quite a change from my rules restricted Stock Eliminator engine! :eek: Unfortunately, testing didn't go well. :( -Al

    Nicely done!

    Sad to hear about the stolen rigs. Didn't Jerry Stiller have a rifle stolen down there and it turned up later in a drainage ditch?

    Good shootin'. -Al

    The .38 Spl case with a ball bearing is a pretty commonly done 'trick' to ease the bolt lift on Savages. It was popularized by Fred Moreo of Sharp Shooter Supply...he's big in the Savage Nation.
