Is that 1/24? What did you use for ignition wires? On my BBC the distributor is at the back?

This is 1/32 scale. Ignition wires are thin guage wire painted red. As to the placement of the distributer you got me on that one

As far as the position of the distributor, BARC Racing most be powered by Ford. Chrysler and GM small blocks have their distributors located at the back of the intake manifold....

I pulled the motor. I wasn't happy with the headers, and I want this to represent a Chevy, so I will reposition the distributer while I am at it,

It was a good exercise in maintenance on this chassis, as I replaced the real motor as well

I should have googled big block Chevy earlier. Hundreds of examples I could have used as a guide

Cheers and thanks

Well done either way. At least you are doing it and that is the important thing. Keep it up.

OK I put it back together with a new motor. and I am happy I did. The first motor most have got cooked while I was soldering . It was one of those," this will be quick moments", but I should have known better. Excessive heat and magnets don't mix, and the motor seemed weak to me when running it. New motor in it and the performance is much better.

Thanks to the Chevy fans I moved the distributor to where it belongs. Seat belts have been added as has the steering wheel

I put down a coat of paint on the body, but the paint doesn't seem to be drying properly. It had been two days and I could still make a dent in it with my finger nail. so I stripped it off and will wash the body again, and try another brand of primer.

Cheers

I'm sending you some more. I had some contaminated resin & can't remember who I might have sent some castings to.

I stripped the car and an used some acrylic paint and it seems to be OK. I am just going to clear coat it and get it ready for decals. I think it will be OK.

I worked some more on the interior of the chassis. I added a fuel tank and fire suppression system. Should be adding decals tonight with a finished car tomorrow.

This front engine effort has been fun and the car runs well enough. A much easier build would have been a sidewinder with this small block motor. I still would have had lots of room for the interior, and the engine area would have been wide open. The next effort is going to be a sidewinder.

The coupling from the motor to the drive shaft is silicone tubing, and I think this will be a weak link, and I wouldn't trust it on an extensive proxy series, but for home track racing it should be fine.
