I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Joe and I live in Ohio(Boardman/Youngstown). I have a 1981 Formula with a 1965 421 motor. The car has not been driven since 2004. I just had the motor rebuilt, and other than getting the timing adjusted, she is ready to go. This was a big step for me, as I have never pulled and reinstalled a motor, on my own. I actually used this forum for a lot of valuable information throughout the process. The car has a factory Borg-Warner T-10 transmission. The motor has been bored .20 over, has a Crower 60916 cam, Performer RPM intake, and Holley 750 DP carb.

Thanks, and I'm sure I will be asking for more input an advice.
Joe

Joe,

You're about 15 min from me (I live in Cortland/Howland, right off of 11 above warren.) Who did you motor, someone local? Always like to have another local machine shop on the Rolodex. Sounds like a fun ride!

Thanks, guys. I will try to get a few pics posted.

cortcomp,
The engine was done by Boardman Engine. The owner is Howard McDonald. He is a great guy to work with. Phone number is 330-758-2364. Let me know if you are going to be at any local car shows. It would be nice to meet some of the members on the forum.

Looks very nice. I can see some sort of traction bar in place. Just wondering if you're using sub-frame connectors too.

With the 4 speed, what clutch system are you currently using? What rear gears?

Bill,

Yes, those are Competition Engineering traction bars. There are sub-frame connectors on the car too.

I am using a Centerforce Dual Friction clutch. The gears are 3.42, but I plan on changing to a taller gear, especially since I have 28" tires on the back.
