Just wanted to add that your shop is what dreams are made of!

Can't wait to see the start of your engine build.

Here are a few other projects I've been working on:


The stangs, gutted one and sold it. The other is patiently waiting for me to work on it.

Air compressors, and Vintage Medicine Cabinet:


Figuring out the wiring to make them run at the same time, off of two power supplies, while staggering the on/off cycle so start up didn't trip breakers.

If your compressors are plumbed together just set the start pressure 15 or 20 lb's different .

Beautiful work, shop, and everything else! You are obviously a man of many talents! But you might need a new pair of gloves...

That is what I was doing originally, however I ran into a problem.


When using my sand blast tank or cabinet, Only one compressor would kick on, and run, and run, and run. It would just hang there, and never gain any psi, nor lose enough psi to cycle the other compressor on.


I plumbed them to use ONE pressure switch, each compressor is on its own breaker and supply. The pressure switch toggles the contactors on. One is through a delay so it comes on just a few seconds after the other. It is a really good setup now.


FWIW, this setup is AWESOME. these compressors were $750 each. They are essentially Bel-Aires. Same pumps (made in Italy), Century Motors made in Mexico, and assembled in the USA.


Total you have 32 cfms, 120 gallons of storage. Running my blasters at 90 psi, they cycle on for a couple minutes, then are off for a couple.

It's good that you got the two stage pumps because HF is also selling the three cylinder single stage pump as a two stage, and that's wrong.
We have our two compressors set up as lead-lag with a 10 lb. differential, and rotate every month (we have a lead-lag switch).

Man you are losing so much of the engine's potential running the stock 1V and exhaust. I love the 240/300 inline 6's, but I won't run one with the stock manifolds and 1V carb. You don't need to go wild with it. But even just stepping up a aftermarket intake with a adapter and a 2V 2100/2150 Autolite/Motorcraft carb with a pair of the 87-97 300 EFI exhaust manifolds( factory cast iron shorty headers ) will really wake up the 300. The 300 came so undercarbed/restricted from the factory it's not even funny.
