Old28. I don't know if the ports can support over 5,500 rpm. My suspicion is the horsepower and torque fall off badly at over 5,000. Will try to do some porting and correct that. Then maybe a cam with more duration and a little more lift.

Here's the Anglia axle and aluminum wheels I'll use on the dragster. And a pic of how it is now for comparison.

Are you gonna weigh those front ends out to see what you're shaving off?

Bob,
Just changing the front rims will save a few Lbs. I ran those same style model A rims on my SDRA dragster. Be sure to get a weight on both setups.

Maybe a good port & polish job on the head and a bit taller cam along with the front end weight loss will net some 10.25 - 10.50 times.

Might think about some holes in the axle like mine. Good building.

I forgot what a good looking dragster you had.

Today my Sammy-Dog went to the Vet. 13 1/2 years old. Tired. In pain. So skinny. Best dog in the world. He didn't come home. Breaks my heart.

So sorry to hear that Bob, they take a piece of our heart with them when they move on.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Bob,
Sorry about your loss. We lost our chocolate Lab of 14 years a few years back, she had cancer. We had to make that same one way trip. Hard to get through.

I sent you a PM with a card our vet put with her when we picked her up. Hope it helps. Hang in there, Tom "old28".

Thank you everyone. Sad around the homestead today. Picture of happier times. The big ones are gone now.
