Brutal 6 Racing
- Sep 4, 2001
This guy likes Stage 2 engines too!
Dang..wish you had asked sooner. We already threw the motor in the dumpster...
My company owner bought the car (for reasons unknown to me, he ain't no Buick guy!) He just made arrangements to transport it to our shop in FL so when it gets here, I'll update with what's what. He is not sure what he is going to do with it..talking about getting it running as it is, he currently is involved in vintage racing, but with old indy cars, but says there is room for it in SVRA (vintage racing association) that he belongs to.
OK..had a few minutes this afternoon to pull the valve covers. The engine is indeed missing a pair of rockers, but the mystery is deeper because while everything is totally sealed up, the lifters and pushrods on that cylinder are missing as well. From what I see, the cam lobes look clean, no damage. I suppose you could fish the lifters out without removing the heads or manifold..looks tight but possible (??)I'm tuned in and waiting to see what you find. Fingers crossed it ends up being something good.
Hi Chuck,Interesting... Heads are on with bolts.
have you pulled the plugs?
Would be interesting to see what that empty cyl looks like.
