      The story is you had Issam build you a motor and didn't buy one of these and give it a proper home in Jersey.

      Oh, I'm aware.

      Like you, I saw the thread had bumped and came looking for some death motor build, left disappointed.

      Yes, one complete motor project has been sold. That motor is in the final assembly stage, should be completed shortly, then will be engine dyno'd on the old Drake dyno. The project has been fully photographed and documented as it proceeds. Video footage will be taken on the dyno.

      Once the project is completed, I'm sure the owner will post the pictures and video. Stay tuned until then.

      If it's of any consolation to anyone, I've saved all the pics and can/will host them when needed.

      If anyone wants copies (compressed zip file) just shoot me a PM.

      You should also be able to download the photos directly from my server in 7MP resolution.
      http://www.rcollins-home.org/photobu...s.php?album=86

      For any photos you want at full resolution, follow these instructions:
      • Click the "Add to Lightbox" check-box for the photos you want to save. If you want all of the photos on that page (there are multiple pages of photos), you can hit "Select All" at the bottom of the screen under "Lightbox actions."
      • After you've selected the photos you want to download, press "Process selected" under "Lightbox actions" at the bottom of the screen.
      • Go back to the top of the screen and press the "My Favorites" button.
      • Click the "Download as ZIP" button near the top of the screen, and save to your computer.

      The bottom end is complete. Crank, rods, pistons installed. Block painted, oil pump installed, oil pan installed. Next task: assemble and install the Drake 16v head. We're shooting for early October for head installation (schedules all conflicting until then).

      Stay tuned.

      Yes, there's still 4 or 5 heads available for purchase. If Stewart runs out, then he owns all of the molds and CNC programming to make new ones.

      Even though any purchase would have to be negotiated directly with Stewart, I'm sure I could answer almost any technical question that might come up. So if you want to start by contacting me to see if I can answer your questions, you're welcome to do so.

      You're welcome to PM me, and I'll give you my phone number or private email address. We can then discuss it further.

      The current project is coming right along.

      Since no original intake manifolds were still available, new ones had to be cast from the original molds. That took a lot longer than expected. But they are now cast, machined, and ready to use.

      As of today, the motor is assembled. Now comes the tedious part of getting the correct accessories on the motor for the customer's car (correct water pump, alternator assembly, etc.). It's not hard, just time consuming and sometimes requires making custom brackets.

      I know the owner plans to have his own build thread. I've already given him a few hundred pictures of the build in process. You'll just have to wait a little while longer until he does the big showing.

      I realize it's been a long time, but I can assure you it hasn't fallen off the rails. Instead of going back through the thread to reacquaint myself with my own last status, I'll just give a status update even if some of it is redundant and been posted before.

      Since the engine was assembled, much more needed to be done. New carburetor manifolds had to be cast. But when the molds were pulled out, they had been slightly damaged over the past 30+ years and had to be repaired before casting new manifolds. So now, manifolds are cast and been anodized.

      The next hurdle are attaching the rest of the hardware like alternator. Since the Drake 16v head isn't a factory piece, all of this stuff needed to be fabricated.

      The last time I saw the motor (two weeks ago), all of that had been done. There was one last piece of fabrication that needed to be completed before working on ignition. I know Van Dyne and the owner had been discussing ignition and I don't remember if they decided which way to go.

      But rest assured, the project isn't off the rails, and nobody wants to see it completed any more than I do.

      Anyways, I hope this gives a little more insight.
