Re: Gratuitous Lack Of Moderation - A little stroker build

Cool.

That is essentially the same thing I have made, except rather than weld a socket to the end of it I made a plate that bolts on using the three holes for the puller (I left enough of the center spider for that purpose). The plate has a 1/2" square hole in the center of it.

I find it helpful to put a finish on my homemade tools. Among other things it helps me remember that this particular hunk of whatever actually has a purpose and shouldn't be used as scrap to fabricobble whatever project happens to be at hand.

Re: Gratuitous Lack Of Moderation - A little stroker build

I'm curious why you honed out the harmonic balancer. Isn't it a light press fit for a reason?

Everything else looks great.

Its not light enough, I guess. I dunno, I'll ask Russ if there's any reason beyond making it easier to deal with.

Looks awesome though!
I've been thinking about this post today.

Refer back to this post and you'll recall that I bought project unicorn specifically to build this motor for it.

With that in mind, was there anywhere to go but full retard? It would be an injustice to myself and my car to do anything else.

You can't have a racecar without a car.

All of my AMC XJ's have been titled as Station Wagon.

All of my Chrysler ones have been titled as Sport Utility.
