What spark plug? About 13 to 1 SBC 427 running Rupert alky carb. Brodix track 1 heads, so 5/8 small plug.

Ran similar but smaller motor years ago, had good luck with Accel plugs, but do not remember what number. Have been running NGK plugs for last few years, with gas, on lower compression stocker motors.

Fire away!

thanks,
Ken

opinions are like a s s holes, everyone has one.

Meannwhile, BIG SPEED who's guideline I posted above and who's recommendation agrees with my advice, has been building race engines and racing longer than anyone posting on this forum.

Nuff said!

You can continue to deflect your issues on others. This clueless racer with his POS will continue to go rounds & win. Something you can't figure out how to do with all your clues & holy grail racecars. You can use your son as an excuse, but I have 2 that race & they're the priority. I still manage to do very well. That's at a duck pond where all the hitter's come.

Now you can spew all your forum bs, while bumping your Buddha belly against your keyboard or you can listen to the truth. There's no charge for this forum truth. You can come to The Strip @ Las Vegas & run, but there will be a charge for your buybacks. Oh, I forgot! You call people out to race, then use your bs excuses to chicken out. Grow some balls boy blunder & back up your keyboard.

Anytime you who's clueless think you and your POS can put me on the trailer, I'm easy to find!

Sorry you don't like the truth & facts Boy Blunder!

You are too slow with your worthless call out! You were called out to Las Vegas to run with the best. I didn't call you out to race, because I like a challenge. I, unlike you; back my mouth/keyboard with $$$$$ & that's proven on a forum.

Keep spewing Boy Blunder.

-9's in my Brodix Track 1 headed 406, seems ok to me? Never tried anything else.

Honest question, if it runs good, and is deadly what "could" change going to the -7 as suggested above.

I don't mean to hijack btw.
