Getting closer

I was able to modify a Scat linkage kit and fab a bracket to mount the center bellcrank to. It looks like it should function better than the other dog legged center pull linkage I have and look cleaner than the hex bar set I have.



I also relocated my center console and fitted the new Bug Tech shifter.


I got the engine up on the test stand but when I went to mount the exhaust, it hits the stand frame. I will have to pull the engine back off and re-engineer the test stand frame. That will have to wait as I am back to work tomorrow and then off to Mexico again for a relaxing week in the lap of luxury before Herbie X comes back to us for some upgrades.

Nice mounting bracket for the linkage! Shifter looks schweet! Enjoy the pool side. (again)

We are back from our trip and it was fantastic. I will modify my test stand today and get the engine back on it tomorrow.

Linkage looks neat, but how have you got it working? To me it looks like the rods are fastened via one fixing on the center pull, does that mean you have one butterfly pushing and the other pulling? (maybe I need a new pair of glasses)

Well I fired it up today and went thru the first 30 minute nail chewing break-in run. the right side carb needs some work but I was not going to stop the break-in for it. I just shut it down and it is cooling off. I will have a look at the lifters after it is good and cooled down. Might bolt on another good set of 45 dells I have before running it again.
It was one of the longest 30 minutes I have been thru.

Good to hear you're back working on SmackBlack again. For a while there, I thought you'd never be able to get everything together for the 2.4.

How does it sound with that exhaust?
