about 2 months back I talked to Ray at www.american-pi.com and he was building a 3.1 L 95 hp head engine for a guy with a Whale. it will also have a EFI system with no distributor, it uses a crank trigger spark system. he does put the engines on a dyno to test then and get the EFI all working as it should. maybe we could ask him to post some of the dyno stuff after the engine is tested. -Sc

Heads for a whale. that makes things a little different. you may be fine with a set of non 140 heads and the 3.1 L engine. with a little porting on the heads you may get enough out of the heads for the small rpm range the engine is run at. it is not like you are going to build a fast street car with a 4speed. LOL as you said low rpm and torque is what you want. you also get a little bette

>>Kevin, I'm still working on an engine for the Ultravan... low-rpm high-torque<< That will make a difference-- Talking to Ray is probably a good idea. did you watch the short putfile video above. It kinda shows the powerband of my 3.1 in a car. it's a fourth gear pull from 2500 rpm. you can see(and hear) that it has plenty of torque down low as it accelerates sm

Kevin, I'm still working on an engine for the Ultravan... low-rpm high-torque. Seven months ago I had hopes of getting it going soon. So much time, and so many projects, since, and I've resigned myself to the fact that it's going to be a long haul. SO I might just as well put together what I want instead of what's expedient. Perhaps Ray Sedman has the heads I need to g

The UltraVans do that, I think. Of course, theres a bit more room where you can stuff a muffler or two before it comes out beneath the rear of the vehicle. I suppose you could cobble up something like the vw baja pipes sticking up behind the car. Yikes. That would be ugly. Everett Wilson North Richland Hills TX

Yes, there is a particular one in mind. I would rather not yet say what number it is as this will eventually become a case for interstate fraud. Someone will either go to jail, or [ my preferenc ] wish that they went to jail. Don't want to spook him as yet. But I would like to locate it at the end of the year. So, what's about this side ?? mounted V-8. Know what number it is? Wh

Best guess is the front pump drive. It's the thing that attaches to the other end of the small shaft that is splined to fit the shaft and has 3 tabs to drive the pump. Take a look at: And take a look at the exploded views of our Ultravan PG on my flicker link below.

Well, silly me.... I thought that he had a particular vehicle in mind. Considering that it was being referred to as "lost". Hyampom - not too far off Matt's commute.

I keep wondering if "One more lost in Calif. I will find it." refers to another Ultra and, if so, which one.

Bucketboss, I agree, and I do know this very well. I also have a 911 - 71T Targa, at the moment. Also, I am working full time helping run and operate a little Porsche shop, I do the engines. I love my 'Vair engines, and I make money on those 2.7 and 3.0 pulled studs. Porsches help feed my Corvair and Ultravan addiction. Now, with that said, I am slowly accumulating used aluminum Porsche

You're right about the 110 pg combo, especially in my Ultravan, that's why Norm spent the money for the Safeguard-like system that's in it . With this it will run regular if need be, but with proportionate power loss. I can watch the difference on the LED's activity, and found that once at cruise, it just doesn't matter what fuel is in it. Cheers, Kurt

Hi Don, For such a lightweight vehicle and lower HP the mag fan is just fine, even in Florida. I run a mag fan on our Greenbrier with full shrouds. Easier on the fanbelt. We use it for camping. When we're fully loaded we are usually about 1200 lbs heavier than the early cars. Even in 100+ weather, temps are never an issue. We also have been running a mag fan on our UltraVan. We d

Bobbi, Yes , I am hooked on these. In the near future I intend to have at least 3 of them. I want one posted in every area of the country that we will be living in. This one is too good to modify the way I wish to do the others. If I keep it, it pretty much stays the same way that Norm [ God of Ultras ] has done it up. My conscience will not permit me to make the changes to it that I have in
