Very Nice!

First thing I noticed was the flat shock towers. They work good don't they.

The pusher fan cools ok for you? That how I'm gonna have to set the 440 Dart up too. Very impressive ride you have, good luck slowing it down.

Back to how to slow it down,

That's simple, just put a 600-650 cfm carb on top.

Let me take it down the strip. The extra weight will slow it down and it may never recover. I really like that Blue.

It appears to me that Jed has 'notched' his shock towers inward to allow more room to shoehorn in that massive 501" BBF!

As SteveW pointed out, Jed's modified the top front shock mount to be flat rather than raised as the OEM mounts are. This allows for more shock travel and thus allows more weight transfer to the rear. I'd also mention that Jed also did good by making the flat plates out of 3/8" aluminum - which is necessary to provide the strength needed for when the weight of the front end comes back down! (I just did that same shock mount mod on my '69 & I'm anxious to see if I can notice a difference in weight transfer!)

If I recall correctly, I believe Jed mentioned a few posts ago he is running Crites headers.... I don't think Jed has mentioned yet what type of mounts he's using.

You're right Alex, that 1050 Dominator sure is a big unit!!

Jed,
You do have one sweet-looking ride and it appears that you've done a VERY NICE job at building it up! I hope you keep us BBF fans in the information loop as to what 'challenges' you are faced with and how you overcome them!!! -- like trying to slow it down!!

Steve L, thanks for the pics - they were worth the wait!!

Jed, that is a very nice car. Is it streetable?

Has anyone used flat shock mounts with 1" drop coils? Will the coils come loose?

I would like to make a shock mount that is wide enough to mount a Monte Carlo bar.

I don't understand... The mount for most MC bars doesn't involve the shock top mount location.... ..my MC bar mounts in front of the shock tower, on the inner fender lip....

Hey Jed,

#1) What style of hood scoop is that peaking over the edge of the hood?

#2) Do you have any hood clearance issues?

#3) Do you run an air cleaner?

#4) Do you have a cage in there?

--Inquiring minds need to know these things!

WOW, thanks for all the replies guys. I never thought my car would be this well appreciated. I guess i have been hanging around the chevy guys too much at the track. To answer some of your questions the scoop is a cheapy Summit piece pro stock style(all i could afford at the time), im switching to a fiberglass cowl hood this winter although i like the car being all steel. Lots of clearance issues with the hood. I had to make the hole in the hood larger for the carb and distributor. I run an Msd unit that i had with my cleveland and it was cheaper to cut a bigger hole than buy a new distributor. No aircleaner, 10pt cage, I do run 1" drop springs with those flat mounts. I was worried about them coming lose but my car doesnt get the nose high enough for that to be a problem. As for the flat mounts they are actually 1/4 inch stainless. I wanted them heavy duty and they are heavy, hasnt effected the ET apparently. Ryan is correct, I use the Crites mounts and headers. They fit nicely, but are far from a tuned set. The shock towers were notched for my benefit and it was well worth the time and effort. I even smoothed them in with filler. My uncle thought i was lying when i showed him, he thought they came that way originally. This block is filled. After owning and cracking two cleveland blocks i wanted to get away from them. I switched to the bigblock and didnt want to make the same mistake so i filled it. I use a griffin rad, csi pump, and a 14" pusher fan. The fan was orignally a puller with the cleveland but i only have 1" between the pump and the rad now. So it became a pusher. The car doesnt go over 180 in 80 degree heat. The car is not streetable. I was afraid i would hurt myself or someone else if i put it on the street, and of course i would have to burn out at every red light and race every camaro. I just believe it was in my best interests. The car is not beyond the point of no return. Who knows maybe in my old age i will put back to the street but for right now shes strictly drag. I hope i didnt miss any questions. Feel free to ask anything i love talking about this stuff. This forum kicks. Thanks again!!

Jed,

This forum ROCKS!
Thanks for being here.
What other secrets do you have in that ride? How come it doesn't lift the front tires much? You're 60's are in the 1.3s right? What rear tires you running? How do you keep your front end from falling off w/o a montecarlo bar?

Soo many questions, LOL

I guess its too front heavy to lift the wheels off the footbrake. The 60's are 1.38 to 1.40, i cant explain it either. I have ladder bars and coilovers. It is pro street stuff. The coilovers are 3 way adjustables and the ladder bars welded in place with the leafs under it and then taken away and the coilovers welded in place and thats where it has been since i did it. Trust me no one is more surprised than me. The slicks are 29x12 goodyears. I have a monte and export for it but havent put them on yet. It doesnt twist much at all on the launch. I have a weld in driveshaft loop and frame connectors and ten point cage. When i jack one side of the car up in the front the other side also lifts so its pretty stiff. I might try to have a video posted so everyone can see.

Jed,
If you don't mind - I've got more questions:

1) For your "back-half" work, did you just weld in some bracing or did you replace the rear frame rails too?

2) What are your rear coilover springs rated at?

3) What do you mean by "coilovers are 3-way adjustables"? What are they set at?

4) I'm guessing to get those 12" GYs under, you tubbed it some, correct?

5) So how much does the car (without driver) weigh now?

6) You mentioned running 1" drop coils up front; are those cut OEM or progressive aftermarket coils?

7) What front shocks are you running?

8) Do you have any front-end travel limiters installed?

9) Are you running a fuel cell?

You Bet! I'd like to see a video clip!!

Thanks! Ryan

The rear frame rails are stock. No bracing besides the rollcage that hooks to them. I did cut out the inner wheel well and boxed it off to the frame. Not really a tub job, more like a minitub if you want to call it that. All the stock fiberglass interior fits over so it looks like stock. I dont know the coil spring rate, i bought them from ebay. The 3 way shocks in them are set at 50/50. I havent weighed the car yet but it weighed 3100 with me and the cleveland. I added the bigblock and finished out the rollcage so i know its about 3250 or so. The coils are aftermarket BB 1" lower. No travel limiter on the front. Im working on the video.

Sweeeeeeeet! My rear tires are 11.75" wide. I didn't know there was room to go in without altering the interior.

Did you have to roll the quarter panels to get the tires to tuck in?

Jed,
Thanks for sharing all the info on your setup!


Did you cut down your rearend housing and axles at all? If not, you must have about a 6" or 7" backspacing on your wheels?

My 9" came from a 1969 bronco. It has not been cut or altered in anyway. It fit right under. You are correct, I use a 6.5" backspace. And yes the wheelwell can be altered without messing with the interior. The inner wheelwell is rounded toward the front of the tire keeping it about 3" from the back of the wheelwell. I simply split the wheelwell in half, removed the inner portion along with about 1.5" of floor over to the frame rail. I bought a piece of sheet metal and made a half circle top and a back for it and welded it in place(kinda like a half a tub). I was sure to keep it back far enough for the fiberglass interior to clear it. I actually have room for a slightly wider tire but i liked the look of the 12 so i went with it and it seems to be working.
