So I have been accumulating parts for years. A 1959 292 block that is .60 over but not core shifted (Sonics good in all cylinders). A set of nice 113 heads. A forged truck crank that has been magnifluxed, straightened, Cut for g.m. Connecting rods and then nitride. All currently at the machine shop. A YBloke supercharger manifold is here waiting along with Detroit diesel 471 supercharger To run twin v-belts 1 to 1. 1 7/8 inch long tube headers to a Tremec 3650 with an aftermarket replacement for the bell housing to bolt up to a truck bell housing to a jaguar rear. All to be housed in a has is I have already built for my Model A coupe. I think this is my last big build so kind of goin all out. Looking for a 1965 build. We’ll see how it goes. MIKE

That will run like the bat out of hell. Just a question, why the 113 heads instead of the larger chamber 471's. You must have done something more to get the compression down for the blower. I've run both on low boost blower motors, but with a 471 unit you can make a lot of boost with a pulley change.

Have fun.

Looked for 471 heads for a while and didn’t find and did find super clean 113s. Will take care of compression when I order the pistons wn
Hi how will need to be custom as we will be using 6” scruby h- beam rods. Just making it up as we go along. MIKE

Molnar makes a 6.125" Scrub rod with 2.000" journal, and the price is decent.  They make several lengths in 2.100" journal, all the way to 6.400".  Joe-JDC

Thanks for the molnar suggestion, they look pretty good. Now a little eye candy (mock-up)!
