The engine for 838 is done and home. I will get it dressed and the bell dialed in while I patiently wait on ERA to finish the car.

A QT bell will be dialed in before lunch time. A Lakewood takes all day, sometimes a week, occasionally a month or two.

Impressive results - 650 lb-ft torque and nearly as much HP. That should scoot it down the road.

Brent,

It was great to put a face with the name.

The engine looks awesome and the torque curve looks like it will be a good driver.

Thanks.
John

838 went to Big B for paint on 10/24. He estimates it will be painted by end of February.

Then ERA has to do some magic. Car should be ready for pick up end of May.

That's great. Do you have the bell housing dialed in yet? I guess you're not going to just fire it up on a stand to kind of hear it a bit before next spring comes around.

Bell dialed in some months back. It was farther out than expected. Around .010 runout.

I used the Lakewood weld on kit that positions the dowel holes in the correct location. It ended out at about .001 run out.

Nothing to do until ERA sends rear end parts for assembly.

Alright. Have there been any changes since the last little one, which had to do with the steering mount rack mounts and was around #752 or so, that you know of?

I am not aware of any changes since the steering rack change.

did you opt for the ERA rear end? Talking with Peter he said the foundry they used for the hub carrier burned down and he was trying to source a new place to make them.

Yes - ERA rear is on my option list.

Peter told me the same, but thought the issue would be resolved by the time my car is ready.
