Wonder if these two are related to Clyde...

They added the weight to the engine to help keep the front wheels on the ground from all the torque..   :o

Correct, as long as the displacement does not exceed 302 cubic inches!!! ;D

'Being this is a Big Block Chevy, the most powerful engine in the world, it will blow your doors clean off. You just gotta ask yourself - do you feel lucky ? Well do you, PUNK ?'

Sorry, the "Every Which Way But Loose" got me started. Now if I could remember "Any Which Way You Can" my evening would be complete.

Steve, you forget a very important part of the quote, "Did he throw two rods or only one?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself." ;D

I thought it was "did I fire 6, or only 5 (and so on). Big uns usually won't pitch 'em unless you get way over that 6500 mark often. I've got a nice windowed JH that mirrors that, where the piston took a "right turn, Clyde". Literally -
