Reverse rotation as in Marine? The oil pump still needs to rotate the correct direction, so does it use a gear driven cam so it still spins the right way, or is there a reverse oil pump, too? I would think the thrust loads would be all wrong, so there'd be all kinds of stuff that'd have to be subtly different. Maybe @Mongle can shed some light on this.
Most use a gear drive camshaft, crank spins opposite normal, cam spins normal. I have seen some Ford that cut the distributor gear so the crank and cam spin opposite, but distributor and oil pump still spin correctly. I believe there used to be oil pumps that were designed to spin the other way, but I never worked on one.
Reverse rotation engines pretty much ended with the release of Mercuiser Bravo One Drive. With the Bravo 1 they run the counter rotation prop via the drive. Both engines spin normal.
Piston offset is switched around and you have to pay attention to seals that have rotation direction.
I didnt read the whole Hagerty write up in detail...but it said the 283 was chosen for the Corvair swap specifically because there were readily avail marine kits for it.
The original SBC was designed with boat racing in mind. That's why the original displacement was 265 cubic inches, to meet a particular class limit.
Custom built for Wayne Newton.
Is that a Pinto glassback rear hatch, or something else?
Could be a pick up bed topper rear glass.
Ive seen some with very angled rear lift glass.
I had never heard of this. What kind of boat racing? I'm trying to think of the time period, best I can think of is Jersey Skiff racing.
I hope this is real and not P-Shopped, the doors are too cool.
I would have been tempted to integrate a Vista-Cruiser roof while I was at it.
I've seen reverse rotation done on a Ford Flathead, remember it from a hot rod show I dragged my Dad to, he explained to me why the exhaust was coming out the top and carbs were on the side.
It is coach built custom... Similar like below except this one is in a bit rougher shape...
Few pages back I posted couple of Rolls Royces, of various MY/models, all custom built as shooting brakes/station wagons...
I think it was hydroplane racing.
Is that a speaker at the third row? Talk about riding in style.
You'd expect nothing less from custom coach built Lincoln...
