Bonneville Speedweek 2010

Last Updated on Sunday, 21 November 2010 08:41 Written by admin Sunday, 15 August 2010 09:21

Speedweek we qualified for the record on our first pass, we went 306.893 mph on the 302 mph world’s fastest flathead record. We went to impound and started servicing the streamliner we knew something in the motor had gone away as the motor was accelerating as good as it should of in the last mile. Upon inspection we found we had melted a piston so we began thrashing on the motor to get it ready in our 4 hour window of allotted time to service the car. In the morning when we went to fire the motor for our run it would not fire so back to the pit we went. To make a long story short cracks in the block were allowing compression to leak into the intake ports, exhaust ports and water jacket.  Apparently Henry Ford didn’t design the flathead block to withstand 600hp. We will try again at World Finals

we didn’t put enough heat in the engine which caused it to misfire and not want to pull the revs.
