Man Kazoom I thought "I" had seen it all. The Globe conversion is a "new/old" one on me. Looks like a take off of the Cosworth designed Lotus Cortina head. BTW the '68 ish Hot Rod cover that showed a group of Ford experimental engines. The "hemi" looking small block was a non running wooden mock up. Latwer Ford Motorsports catalogs showed an "under developement" pushrod activated 32 valve conversion. Only one survives in a Michigan based roadster. Ford dropped the program due to costs and durability issues according to Mose Nowlan , head of Ford Engine Engineering. Randy
Speaking of SOHC's, in 1984 I was a stupid 16yr old and didn't know any better.....I was offered a formerly drag raced 427 SOHC for $1K. I didn't want it cause I didn't know what I would do with it. Damn thing still ran but had sat for 7-8yrs. Oh well, what do you do?
Just this past October at the Engine Masters Competition there was a small block 351W based 427 Ford "hemi" Shelby engine competing; like one which started this thread.
I posted on the one arao thread there and have seen what he was doing, really knows his stuff, his layout reminds me of the 32V thunder power heads.
I do know I would love to own those "one off" heads he made for that kevin gal guy.
