    Not for the Faint of Heart

    Saw this on GTT. 316 with a GM 350 engine.

    More time and money than brains, maybe.

    Looks like someone had more money than brains. Engine must get hot not having a radiator.

    You can run quite a while w/o radiator if burning methanol. Might be for short duration/exhibition use .

    I think its more they rebuild a tractor around the motor. Cut the frame inhalf, and 2" and weld it back on around the drivetrain.

    Your stuff is very nicely done with the turbo being one of the greats. A 332 is tight in the tins to begin with.
