I just can't get this thing to run...

Few more pieces to add. The Lifters are accurate down to the needle bearings and the little retainer clips. The pushrods are accurate. The springs are set at 1.83 installed height. It has little keepers in there. The valves are accurate. The locks hold the keepers. The valve bridges are accurate. I have most of the injector solid modeled. Just need to digitize the top of the head to line it all up. The copper head gasket is accurate. The pistons are close. Need to work on the wrist pin area...

According to Solidworks. There is about 225lbs of material sitting there. Need to do the crank... Eventually I'll do the block.

Yeah. I noticed that they left the patent open on log and tube manifolds. And just to be different I ran the tube angles opposite to them since a duramax has ports facing inward vs ours facing straight up. I really want to do a box center with tubes off the side and knock off the old school Chevy TPI manifolds. But I see there is a manifold like that for the modular motor mustangs.

I was toying around with making one similar to whats on Don Bowles Coal Digger mustang. Quick name change to the Coal Roller would work... The downside is that his is fed from the back. Have to cut a big hole in the firewall for that.

I was only kidding around. I doubt they would patent that, it's been used for a long time. Heck, even the import crowd uses them.

Great job on the design.

That'll never work.....6.0's are all POS' remember. No one can make any power with one of those.
