Conley Model V8 Engine
« on: October 30, 2017, 08:51:27 PM »
Have any of you guys seen this? Its an amazing machining job, I got to see one in person several years ago mounted in a dragster and it is really cool, the videos don't do it justice.

Yes I have seen that motor it's pretty cool  :t2030:

I don't think I have the eyesight to build one of them or the tooling to do it

Apparently this is not the original 427 he built. The foundry that housed all of his molds burned down and he lost them all but at the time he was designing a Viper V10 so he just cut it down and made a new V8.
