I posted a while back about the Cleveland in my 70 was shot, well i've finally finished the rebuild. Here's the details.

2 BM block bored .040.
4v heads fully worked with screw in studs, stainless valves, titanium retainers etc etc
The oiling system has screw in restrictors, and a feed directly from the pump take off to the rear feed.
The bottom end has been balanced using a stock crank, polished rods and forged probe pistons fitted with file fit rings.
I used a custom ground camshaft from Cam Motion as unfortunately due to ill health Jay was unable to organise this for me. (Get well soon Jay)
The cam is a mechanical flat tappet with full roller rockers.
The intake is a port "o" sonic which has been port matched to the heads and the carb is an 850cfm I made using a Pro Form main body and QFT base, metering blocks and bowls.

I'm hoping the car will get me in the high 10's without the gas using the built C6 (3600 stall  converter ) and 3:55 rear gears in the 9" on drag radials.

We'll see.

Phil

Another update.

I decided to get rid of the carb mainly because in these cold damp conditions we get in the UK the car has been a real pig to start. I've now fitted a F.A.S.T EFI kit and it has transformed the car. It starts instantly and the trottle response is very impresive. It's still in the self learning stage but i'm very very happy.

Here's a short vid of the car, nothing major but hopefully it'll give you an idea. The driver is a friend.

There's life in the old Clevelands yet....................

The injection is nice but I would of loved the challenge to make the carb as crisp as the FI
I have learned how to tune them Holley's in any region.

It's tough to get a carb right with no choke and cold starting conditions.
What are your cam specs? Stock crank?
