...... Is there anyone in the group, that runs or have ran FJ's???
Yup. In the past tense.
....... Hey sdwarf36, You say you ran a FJ in the past, Can you talk about it a little, good or bad. Any pic's??
I run a Puma FJ in my bike.....
I bet your Puma has a main bearing right about where this crank broke.
..... Not good, Did it come apart at the track?? Have you ever heard of Hank Scott?? Did you get good HP out of the FJ??
I used to drag a FJ-small tire with bar-did a best of 8.85 @150.
This motor was blown up while racing a dwarf car. I actuall drove it back to the trailer like this! When i tore it apart, as soon as I pulled the cyllinders off the studs, the motr felll in two! The head studs were the only thing keeping the pieces together.
When Legends cars came out, I thought for sure I could line up all kinds of work building motors-I had been racing them for years. I quoted many out but never got the work. I asked someone who they did end up using-he said Hank Scott racing. I asked him how much He spent (wanted to see if I was over price my quotes.) He said a freshen from HSR was $4000!!! I told him I couldn't fill the oil pan with ripped up $100 bills to justify that much! But I guess if your from NC, you MUST know circle track motors. (You walk into a Ferrari repair shop-which tech do you use? Luigi--or Bob? )
I'd recommend John Ganey at Performace Cycle Works in Scenectedy Ny.
.... I have talk to Hank a few times, I was planning on spend the money on a NEW Motor. I really like MY FJ, and I really like running and out running the Busa's. But, one reason, why I have not spent the money yet, I am in Florida. have not had a chance to head that way. NC. I wish I could find someone with that experience building FJ's here ....... One other thing, you said, head studs, did you use stock or from APE??
Yes-used APE studs-they were one of the very few companies that made parts for the FJ. The pistons go up + down just like any other engine-dont be scared.
