Do you still have RX7???
HalfAssPainting (9 days ago)
That’s a great deal and to comment on your commenters , screw your neighbors if they don’t like the sound of hot rods then too bad. Yeah a single plane manifold is a tad ambitious for a basic 302, sell it and get a dual plane. The ethanol garbage in your carburetor is a constant problem I’ve had to pull the 1.5 year old Holley off my Camaro twice due to build up
ThunderHead289 (8 days ago)
Whoever had this before me was pretty dumb. I ended up buying it for 1000, getting it running, and selling it again for 1800 within 2 weeks. Back in my college car flip days

Dang you stole that gem.

Neighbors must LOVE you LOL! BTW this thing sounds so much better with the 302 than a 12A!

Awesome rescue! Loved the "never had an engine I didn't care enough about to use this stuff"! I would love to see you and the Roadkill gang have a $1500 cannonball with the fans! Sort of Lemons meets Cannonball Run with beater cars!

I hope that you stay at a point in life where you can keep doing this. With roadkill selling out I feel you are in line to step up and be the next big car show on YouTube. You've got good ideas and know a lot. Keep putting stuff out and I'll keep watching and supporting.

ThunderHead289 (1 year ago)
no scholarship as if i was a minority would have been a better way to say it, but yes, you drew the proper conclusion. - could have been worded better.
Steve just Steve (1 year ago)
Damn man, easy does it. It was a joke, as is the whole concept of white privilege. You said "Poor white male, no scholarships due to my race" hence my joke. Now you say "No scholarships just because I'm a minority", so now I thoroughly confused because "poor white male" is definitely not a minority. I guessing you meant to say You couldn't get a scholarship because your not a minority. The ladder of my comment was anything but a joke. Oh and congrats on your YT success.
ThunderHead289 (1 year ago)
+Steve just Steve white privilege? Let me tell you about my white privilege. No handouts in school, poor as all hell but have to pay my own way. No scholarships just because I'm a minority. I got through on my own merit and hard work. That's why I thrive. I also make xx,xxx a year from YouTube - again from my hard work. I guess white privilege - the privilege to have to work hard so you learn how to actually succeed in life.
Steve just Steve (1 year ago)
+Thunder What? You mean your inherent white privilege didn't automatically get you a degree w/o even going? That's fucked up! But seriously, haul that bitch to the country or empty parking lot for that shit. Doing a drive test in the hood is one thing, but that shit is pretty uncalled for. All it takes is one kid not paying attention as they never do to run out in front of ya to change a dozen peoples lives forever, because I'm sure that POS stops on dime.
ThunderHead289 (1 year ago)
+oh damn its that guy that would cut the profit margin in half. I'd never do this again, but back then I was in college and had no money. Poor white male, no scholarships due to my race. I had to do things like this since I had to pay my way.

Shouldn't of said you paid $1000. then say you want $2000. I didn't see $1000 worth of work put into it to get it running agian
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Hey, figured I'd offer. A car not running with a ton of unknowns is worth nothing, a running car is worth more. I did end up selling the car for 1800
Randi Gal (2 years ago)
you roll those wheel wells with a bat. lower the car on the bat and roll it back and forth

We're cut from the same cloth man, I love buying cars that someone else put a ton of work and money into but can't get them to run. Then by using a good common sense trouble shooting procedure, fire them up and have some fun. My wife just shakes her head, it's like a drug man. Retired 68 yr old mechanic. Love your vids.

If I showed what I did, the vid would be an hour long lol. Always critics. Explain things well and people complain, don't explain and people complain. Whatever man. What do you do? Lol
dan sprouse (2 years ago)
I like how the owner told you it had a "RADICAL CAM" but idles like a stock 2 barrel 302 straight out of a granada that someone slaped a 4 barrel on. stil has stock exhaust manifolds. funny every says they have a "radical cam" when their car don't run. fun project though.
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Lol no kidding. It was bone stock and then matched with a terrible intake. It was fun to play around with for 1000
oldfordblue1 (2 years ago)
Did you happen to pick that thing up somewhere near waterloo/cedarfalls iowa? Pretty sure I remember a rx7 with a goofy air cleaner stuck through the hood, and a james bond smoke screen out the back, running up and down university ave back in the day trying to run everyone lol
oldfordblue1 (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 that doesn't surprise me, kid that was running around in it back then wasn't exactly the brightest peanut in the turd. As for the "radical cam" its basically a stock 90's roller long block as you figured out there. Car has been around awhile, I know its switched hands a few times.
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
I sure did. That guy went to jail too apparently

That stupid flex fan takes away like 10% of the power at high rpm's.
chabka34 (1 year ago)
ThunderHead289 I have had way more macanical fans die then electric on me
julio lausell (2 years ago)
I get it... It's nice car, I wish I had it!!!! Enjoy it!!! Don't flip it, keep it!!!!
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+julio lausell that's fun in and games till you drive a car practically and the electric fan fails. And if you don't notice you boil her over, warp a head and what not, I'd rather give up the few horsepower on the street. Drag car is a completely different story. Street car won't even be noticeable. Ac and alternator require more horsepower than the fan and flex fans themselves get thin at higher rpm and reduce drag. Hence the name "flex fan"
julio lausell (2 years ago)
I did say LIKE 10%. Maybe I should have said less, but it is what it is. So then it could be said that a two horse power engine ( a weed eater engine ) will spin this fan up to 5500rpm? I think it would take a little more, something like a 4hp engine. Don't you think a GOOD electric fan would better. I do like the car, nice build.......This is 2016, not 1970. Down with the flex fans!!!!! =)
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Lol it draws like 2 horsepower at most. Dyno tested evidence on decent engines iv build

This is real world! Well done and documented.
Moon Hitsearth (2 years ago)
people who drive like this in a residential area, are dangerous, and they deserve to get caught. just saying, there are better places for driving like that. . I cringe when I hear the screech of tires, as I wait for the impact, rarely is there not an impact. I've seen so many accidents in my neighborhood. So now I'm the old grouch that yells at people that drive badly. It's all fun and games, until somebody gets hurt. Those are wise words. I love the car, put that motor in your Chevy Luv.
Moon Hitsearth (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 The worst part is, it's usually the people that show off, that crash. I've seen it happen so many times. In high school this guy came into the parking lot where all the kids were hanging out, and decided to burn some rubber, he took out about 5 parked cars, it only takes a second to fuck up your day, week, years. 5 cars, glass went flying up like a fountain.
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Yeah, that was not my greatest idea at all. So dumb. I'd never want to hurt someone. That was a pretty hard fail, and a learning lesson among other things I have done. I did sell this car, apparently it's been sold again as well.

What do you do lol
ChiefJustice Middleton (2 years ago)
cant you just pull the 1st plug and do a static fire test to begin with?
AmericanThunder (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 That change to the firing order was an effort to reduce the strain on the #1 main cap, which supports cylinders 1 and 5(The first cylinder on each bank) Thus, the older firing order will hit 1 and 5 virtually at the same time, while the newer firing order goes 1 and then 3(1 and 3 arent adjacent cylinders). The change had nothing to do with the crank, and really never made any difference in the 351W/302 block's durability anyway. lol The 302 stock block that's under my 332" stroker motor in my Mustang has no issues hitting 9k rpm with the older 15426378 firing order. ;)
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+AmericanThunder the 351 firing order is better. The 7 then 8 firing is hard on the crank. Of course you can't run a firing order that the cam does not call for.
AmericanThunder (2 years ago)
The 351W(13726548) firing order isn't any better than the older 15426378 firing order, unless of course, the cam calls for it. lol
ChiefJustice Middleton (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 good old Ford. should have just copied Chev and dodge and made it easy
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+ChiefJustice Middleton there is also a 351 firing order. Which is better than the old 78 firing order

+ThunderHead289 use a straight 30wt. 20-50 is just a 20wt
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
This engine was way toast before I ever got it. 20-50 had to go in to even get 20 psi of oil pressure at idle
Yoshio Tamiya (2 years ago)
Please! Electric fan, smaller distributor, ANY kind of affordable EFI,
Swansen03 (2 years ago)
cylinder wall bore and new pistons would be a good idea first.. but.. you'd probably be able to get a junkyard engine cheaper/easier(or do an LS swap at that point). considering all that blowby
Drew Quirk (2 years ago)
How intelligent of you to do this is a neighborhood. Class act my friend
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Better than driving out of town without it registered or insured and getting pulled over. At least this way I could hide in a pinch. Clearly that all wasn't my best plan

Gear shifter is in a strange position
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)

Chuck Davis (2 years ago)
so if I got smoke coming out of the valve cover vents that means I have blow by? My 1963 galaxie with a FE has this.
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
This is correct, yes. Especially if it's in warm weather with the car at idle fully warmed up

Do you watch roadkill? Btw I am having really bad carb leaking problems on my motorized bicycle Ill make a small video explaining it instead of typing it all out.

Been a roadkill fan from the start. Shoot me a link, I'll take a look.
Cereal Killa (2 years ago)
Dude, I can geek out on your vids but not everyone can. You might consider trimming them a bit. js...
Fraser Davidson (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 please don't trim a single technical detail. Road kill lost its charm when they started dumbing it down. You've earned yourself a new subscriber.
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
What? Lol I trimmed so much content out. Would have been better because you could actually see how I do things imo
aserta (2 years ago)
For the camera, get a chest mount off of eBay, they are pretty darn cheap, and i'm sure you'll find one for your camera. Try and find the ones with mounts on them, mainly because then, you can find various adapters, which allow you to move the camera around. Perfect for a one-man-show. It's the same kind of setup most survival shows on TV use for their stars. On the episode itself, really neatly done. Clean, nothing extra, nothing too little of. I like it.

I us usually do them in multi video layout, then when I am done I put them all together. Got another one I'm doing that I just picked up yesterday
Minichiello Nick (2 years ago)
whoever you got the car off is really not the best wrench timer, a edelbrock rebuild would be the first thing to tackle. you should of shown how you got your timing and dwell correct as well some guys dont understand a timing light or what a cam shaft even is. i enjoyed your video tho good find the motor alone even with low compression would be a steal for a grand in canada with a trans and pumpkin. motor on fellow gear head
Minichiello Nick (2 years ago)
Very cool... like a 305 in a chevette
Minichiello Nick (2 years ago)
I live in Canada and something like that just doesn't get done. The government up here won't let us modify a car that heavily and if our wheel base extends from the fenders it's a 300 dollar fine. I rebuild mostly stationary diesels and small engines. Keep that girl she's a cream puff
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
If show all that, but I didn't want to bore people. Ton of vids on my channel of what I did. Pretty sure I said something about rebuilding the carb and setting everything up right, just didn't think people would want to see all that this time around

Nice vid, man! I miss the old low-buck Roadkill thrash, too. Wonder if it would be worth putting a dual plane intake back on this thing, even a stock cast iron?
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Oh by far. That intake is a horrible item for that engine. I got more low buck stuff coming
Billie joe gallant (2 years ago)
I hope the gas pedal wasn't to the floor I have seen better burn outs from chevettes
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
I didn't really want to burn the tires down. Or get the cops called, which clearly I was trying to do
Derrick Brasel (2 years ago)
why do you put roadkill in description so many times
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+Mitchell Birch I mean the title is labeled roadkill thunderhead289 style for gods sake. People should be able to tell what they are clicking on
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+Mitchell Birch noted. Maybe I'll change it to oldschool roadkill. Yes I took advantage of the tags in the description. I Steve Jobsed that one pretty hard. Atleast I'm not the dicks that title their stuff roadkill ep. 52 or whatever lol.
Mitchell Birch (2 years ago)
+Derrick Brasel the way that it's labeled as the newest uploaded episode of the actual roadkill, it's very obvious that this video series is hijacking success of another. If it wasn't the aim, the video may have been labeled "what roadkill should be" or something similar. I'd be willing to bet that the attorneys for motor trend would have issues with this video.
Derrick Brasel (2 years ago)
+ThunderHead289 i understand that but make it more obvious that your calling them like say it in the video that but just putting it in the description looks bad
ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
+Derrick Brasel I respect that. Roadkill wouldnt be in the name of it wasn't specifically directed at roadkill to remind them of their roots. Figured they are bound to see it if it's on the first page of YouTube.

ThunderHead289 (2 years ago)
Yeah man I doubt it. I never did any wide open runs. I was in residential. Which was an idiot thing to do even with what I did. The thing could move out hard and that engine was way past worn out!
Tanner Thorpe (2 years ago)
not an 84. I have a 84 gsl-se rx7 nd an 85 gs targa 7 rx7. that's the earlier interior so your looking at 81-83 with that body style and interior style.

Lol what? I think you missed the point. This was supposed to be a low buck resurrection and thrash. And obviously I didn't grow parts at it.
