    Lightbulb A Dummy Engine For Deep-N-Hock...

    Blinged up my "test fit" engine to bring to South Bend for the Int'l Meet..
    Still need to add some shiny bolts to it...
    Am going to be a vendor selling intake manifolds and CNC ported cylinder heads.
    Have made the enclosed trailer up into a showroom.. All done on the cheap.
    It's a dead block, with bad heads, no guts, and it's a used trailer snagged a 14 months ago.
    Looking forward to going!

    Great Jeff! I look forward to meeting you at SB. Engine & trailer all are first class, as your work always is.

    Impressive display. I especially like the small "footprint" of the wheeled dolly. Of course, if the engine were buttoned up, with an oil pan, that dolly wouldn't work. Certainly not in my drafty, dusty, pole building. However, for your purpose, fantastic!
    Nothing "Dummy" about it.

    The bottom of the dummy engine is designed that way.
    The trailer came with just a single workbench door, but I changed it to a double door.
    Put a big winch in there to load 'The Black Car'. The winch is mounted on a removeable 'stub' (a class III hitch pointed straight up).



    So the dummy engine needs 9" of clearance underneath for the roller fairlead.
    The dummy engine gets stored under the workbench for travel, but the car can still get loaded with the winch.



    Still need to build up a 'tongue' that plugs in to the pin at the base of the winch mount, and then put in the two e-track single mounts behind the double doors to tie the dummy engine down solid for road travel.

    Just go buy a foam block like this:

    Except they don't have a Studebaker block and they cost more than the running Stude V8 I bought and dropped in my truck! Oh well!

    Can't wait to see yours in person, Jeff!

    No sir, I do not.
    Bought these a long, long time ago. The rocker adj'g screws hit the insides and I never bothered grinding them out on the inside.
    They fit a whole lot better when there isn't anything in the head.
    Haven't seen anybody reproducing these, either..
