Here is the latest version of my waste oil burner. I had made a wood stove conversion that worked OK but I couldn't trust it. If I could sit there and watch it and adjust the oil flow and air flow every 10 min or so it was fine. It was either an inferno or the fire would go out. If the fire went out, the pot filled with oil and then I had to bail it out. It would get so hot that it warped the inside of the stove. The stove had seen better days anyway so now it is scrap metal.
Enter the Siegler.. I bought this one of of CL a few years ago. It is exactly like the one that my Grandpa had. I cleaned out the carburetor, re-plumbed it with a secondary filter, and put a new blower in it. The plan is to start it on Kerosene and once it is going switch it to my waste oil blend. The first batch was a 50/50 mix of used 10w40 brake-in oil and #2 fuel oil. I know the key to burning this stuff is to get all of the particles out that I can. The carburetor jet is small it it won't take much to plug it. I poured the mixture through a paint strainer before I put it in my tank.

Road trip last week wend to dyno a engine and pick up the 2nd convertible parts car.
56. CD418Stroker: Full ported Indy Heads, 12.8:1, E85, 267/275 @.050, 108LSA, ,704" lift solid roller cam, Torker intake, 950 carb, Jim Landis Headers.

It actually made 10 more HP with a "Vac Pump" on it. LOL!

The way that dyno chart is charted makes that engine look peaky but it's got >500hp and >575ft/# at 4500RPM. Wow! That would be sooo fun to drive!

I notice the oil filter faces the front of the car. How is that? Do you know what car this engine is going in?

I have to be honest, I always get super stoked to see updates here but each time you post an update, I know your retirement is rolling closer and I am a little sad, too.

It is going in the Hornet race car that I showed on page 1. He has a remote oil filter system that he mounted in in front rather than on a fender well or some other place.

Peak Torque is 586 at about 4400 rpm.
Peak HP is 652 at about 6500 rpm.
This is the final pull to back up pull 21.

Any idea when the torque curve hit 500+?

That is very impressive!!!

I really don't. Obviously with a race engine we were just trying to tune it and find where the peak horsepower was going to be. Honestly, we were hoping for it to peak closer to 7000 rpm and along with that a little more horsepower.
We used the Torker intake that he had but I wish we could have swapped it out for a Victor Jr. or a Indy intake. Fun stuff nonetheless.
