At LAST ---the 545 is at the Shop
#1
As some of you may recall, I have been acquiring all the parts to replace the 428SCJ motor that is currently in "Fire" (my '73 Mach 1) with a bored and stroked 429SCJ to build a 545. The 428SCJ is going into my '69 Mach 1Smile.

Well, on yesterday the family and I make the trek to Cuba, Missouri to drop off all the parts at Dave Mclain Automotive and Machine shop to put the motor together and dyno it.

Finmach: Dave does remember meeting you while at the show in Denmark and I passed on your regards.

Needless to say, I am getting REAL excited!

That's awesome BT! I know you have been planning this build for quite a while.

Can you give us a run down of the parts selection and goals for your build?

Is Dave going to dyno it for you?

Best regards,

Yes, Tommy.

The goal is primarily for a really STRONG street motor.

The major parts are:

429SCJ (4-bolted mains) Block bored .030 over with screw in core plugs
RPM 4.500" forged crankshaft
RPM 4340 Connecting Rods
Diamond .030 dish pistons
Diamond/Total Seal piston rings
Trick Flow Street Heads (Fully ported by Charlie Evans)
Trick Flow TFS-53400621 Rocker Arms
Trick Flow R Intake Manifold (also ported by Charlie Evans)
Comp Cams XR 286 Solid Roller
Competition Carburetor modified HP 1000 carbureter
Russell 641520 Fuel System
Hooker 6201 Super Comp Headers
Canton 15-750 Oil Pan with 15-751 Pick UP
High Flow Dynamics modified M84BHV Oil Pump
MSD 6AL-6420 Ignition Box
Edelbrock 8866 Water Pump
MSD 8577 Distributer

I have a Broader C6 that will be backing the motor up along with 35 spline axles and an aluminum drive shaft.

We think it will do "what we want it to doSmile"

...and yes, Dave will be dynoing it.

Another GREAT idea, Tommy!

The title has been edited.

I will also add that the Regular Member who comes closest will have Membership paid for a VIP Membership.

If the "winner" is a VIP Member, I will spring for one order of any item in the following link.
