#1: Lettucehead can't pull his off topic nonsense: HERE is a WILLYS.

Posted on 2006-07-21 21:00:29 by Bret Ludwig

So there you have it; a rolling 4x4 laboratory for the "clean air
message" that gets down a drag strip or up a hill faster than you can
yell Willys.

Excerpt:

700 horsepower and very little emissions.
If you wonder what the editor of TRUCKWORLD ONLINE! drives...here it
is!

THE MOTOR

With a rolling chassis in place, it was time to design the powertrain
which would take us where we wanted to go. We started this process by
contacting Ak Miller Turbocharging (562-949-2548), one of the nation's
foremost specialists on propane conversions, to get exact specs for the
engine, which would deliver maximum performance and reliability when
completed. We chose Engine Research Development (Canoga Park, CA ,
818-702-9393) to rebuild the 350-cid Chevy four-bolt-main as the
company is known for their attention to detail when building balanced
and blueprinted racing-type engines.

Ak Miller suggested we use the machined and balanced Chevy cast
crankshaft (balanced by West Valley Engine Balancing), Speed Pro 7058PA
pistons, and R9903 rings to ride on the Chevrolet &quot;X&quot; rods. E.R.D. then
machined the open-chamber cylinder heads to have 74cc of volume, and
Speed Pro1.94-inch intake/1.60-inch exhaust valves were fitted to ride
atop a precisely squared and decked block.

&quot;GIVE ME SOME MORE HORSEPOWER PLEASE!

Next, it was on to Ak Miller's (9225 Slauson, Dept. TW, Pico Rivera, CA
906603; Telephone:562-949-2548) for the turbocharging and propane setup
as well as dyno tuning work. Ak wanted to add two turbochargers on the
Chevy 350, just to make sure we kept the FUN &amp; DIFFERENT part a strong
theme of this project.

Ak and Brad installed an OHG propane conversion kit for the Chevy,
consisting of a converter/vaporizer, mixer/carburetor, high pressure
supply hoses, and all the hardware for the installation. Two
impeller-driven Ak Miller turbochargers were then added, along with
Ak's Fuel System Analyzer to monitor and correct the air/fuel ratio. A
K&amp;N air-filter was chosen to clean the air from dust particles that
could turn our turbos into donuts. The team then plumbed the entire
propane system back to the rear mounted 28 gallon tank, which is
protected by Unlimited Custom's custom three inch tubular cage and
diamond-plate skid plate.

We chose to run the system using a maximum of five pounds of boost,
giving us a reliable 465 lb-ft of torque and 275 horsepower at 2000
rpm. At 15 pounds of boost ,and with a different cam, this motor is
capable of delivering over 700 lb-ft of torque and over 750 HP!

At idle, with the present propane setup, the emission results using the
standard California test yielded an impressive 0.0 percent of carbon
monoxide (CO), and 0.0 parts per million of hydrocarbon (HC). Yes, that
is correct! The motor will run cleaner under boost than a standard
Chevy 350 gasoline motor at idle!

The power is transferred to the driveline using a B&amp;M built TH 700R4
overdrive automatic transmission, torque converter, and oil cooler. A
U. S. Radiator Corp. five row radiator also helps keep the engine
temperature in line. An Advance Adapters kit mates the 700R4 to a late
Dana 300 through-drive transfer case. The Dana 300 unit provides a
healthy 2.6:1 gear ratio in low range plus a stout gear drive.
Custom-built drivelines by Mike Whitcomb at Wenco Industries (Van Nuys,
CA) deliver torque to the front and rear Currie Enterprises axles.

Would you go off-road with those bottle bombs hanging just off the
ground?

A &quot;performance&quot; engine with a cast crankshaft ?!?
