Default Built stuff

I have over the years built a lot of tools and stuff. It's about time I tried to make some money from making things, so wish me luck. I am having a search done on a tool I designed about 6 months ago and finally got around to assembling it. It works pretty well for what it is designed for and it is broad in application enough that it could be used in a lots of different areas.

Hopefully the search will not take long. Because I have 3 more tools following this one.

LoL. I wouldn't even use killaries fat for grease on my project..... We are in search mode now. In a few days we will know if we have a shot at patent. If not on to the next piece. Just because it is not for sale in the world doesn't mean it hasn't been invented yet.

I have a friend that I went to school with. He said he had several people approach him about his invention but walked away as soon as he told them the application was already sent. Yep, it's about money

edit: completed my last mod on project one! Been a very long 2 weeks... tired of fabrication today and ready for some change, time to go skating! Prints tomorrow to finish and wow has this been exiting! Then kick off project 2 by the end of next week.

My thoughts exactly. I want the Mirage to be a powerhouse. Overkill would be a better term. I don't want just enough to outrun a factory ride or factory fast production cars. Turbos are nice but I'm now thinking Procharger.

your crank has to be the highest quality forged unit.
those prochargers can snap the shaft where the h/ balancer normally goes.
theyre just a crank driven turbine.
i suppose if you havent the space behind the seats you can gilmer belt drive it.
That might save the crank some in one way but load it in another way.
yeah in a mid mount youde wanna avoid hair dryers as the heat would be crammed in, unless you ran long ram induction,thats not what id image youde want.too busy in the engine bay,
Car jack a dodge demon and strip it for parts
then all you need is a bellhousing adapter plate and bobs your uncle.
just kidding about the car jacking.

Good crank a must. There was a screw supercharger a long time ago that was banned from drag racing, but found it's way to land speed cars instead. It was pretty good but blowers don't lend themselves to intercoolers so much. Lots to think about in the small engine bay. The other thing is cooling the beast down. I never got into the Dodges except for the trucks. I like the Cummins trucks, a lot.

My fav engine long ago was a 427, Pro High-Ram, twin Predator carbs and a Unilite. Simple stuff. 2385p Sealed Power pistons, balanced rods with good bolts and steel crank. Comp cams 292 hydraulic with Sealed Power IIRC fast bleed lifters for vacuum. Set into my Datsun 280z with a powerglide.

Closer to 25 years. It was a fun car. I had the same motor in an old chevy pickup. Gearing was wrong for the motor but it would fly down the highway. Simple motors that worked well. Torque was about as good as normal for a BBC at lower rpms and it just kept revving if you stayed in it. I zinged it plenty of times to 7500.
