    Exciting 1933 Dodge project!

    I did not! Fortunately they are just temporarily mounted. The end user plans on dismounting and balancing them. I've had them on my '31 DeSoto for 8K+ miles with no issues, but very good to know for future projects! Thank you for the info!

    Great question - It's actually a brand new axle from Winters performance. -It's light (aluminum center) -All modern and readily available big Ford bearings and seals. -3.78 R&P -Several backing plate flanges available -Custom housing and axle lengths available. -Trac-loc available -Flanged axles (no need to carry a hub puller) We debated this at length but felt giving our criteria of - parts availability in remote locations, gear ratio, limited slip, custom lengths, brake drum interchangability, not having to carry a hub puller, ability to do brake work without pulling hubs, readily available brake wheel cylinders, etc. - it was a no brainer. We also have a good relationship with Winters from our Bonneville efforts, so that didn't hurt either.

    Once the word got out that I was planning on producing a run of heads, I started getting messages and calls from previous customers about what they thought needed improvement. This got me to thinking that if I was going to the trouble and expense of modifying the patterns, that I should dig a little deeper. So we bandsawed up two existing Gen I EDGY heads, as well as two stock heads, and consulted with pattern makers and foundries. The improvements to the Gen II EDGY heads are as follows: -Additional internal webbing in the core to better support the combustion chambers. -Revised webbing in certain areas of the core for better coolant circulation and reduced stagnation. -Larger internal radiuses to improve strength, durability, and heat or stress crack resistance. -Changed casting method to better support the core for less risk of core shift during casting. -A modern technique incorporated into the patterns to have denser and equally-sized as-cast combustion chambers. -Multiple test pours cast and cut up to analyze progress. -Poured from pure 100% A-356 ingot. -Heat treated to T6 -Shot blasted to clean casting and relieve stress. -CNC machined for consistency.

    Yes, I know. Sorry for the delay.

    I wanted to use 2" springs so I had them made off the original blueprints at Eaton Spring in Detroit.

    I believe they have 12 left to machine. It took quite a while to build a fixture for the mill that was easily indexible for the kids (error proof). They will then be surfaced and shipped, hopefully near the end of next week. Thanks for your patience!
