    Default OMC - Mod 50

    Seems as there might be enough interest in my pistons to have some more made. If so, I will have to have orders for at least 1/2(50) before I order. My order will consist of .020s, .030s, and .040s over standard bore(3.000). The quantities of each will be established upon the interest in each size. I talked to Wiseco about a month age and with my quote, the pistons will still be $100.00 ea. w/ rings,wrist pins, and clips. Have some rods and plenty of brgs. to convert to Mod-50 size(large) Brgs. and rods run $100.00 for each set. Rod $80/brg.$20. Let me know if interested. E-mail or call home-843-650-0400 or cell 843-446-7767. Phil

    ********** Dave or anyone else in setting clearence on your bore, PLEASE check the taper on my pistons as well as the Mod-50. You will find a greater taper than the stock/fishing. I like .004 Phil

    Default Pressed sleeve block

    The pressed sleeve die cast blocks were made by putting a special aluminum blank in the die, in place of the stock iron sleeves. After casting, the aluminum blank was carefully machined out leaving the intake and exhaust port passages. You could not tell a pressed sleeve block from a Tradewinds block without looking inside. These motors made a lot more power than the stock Mod 50 but Jack Leek would'nt let us use them since we had customers racing Tradewinds motors. The first one was raced by Jeff Brown at St. Louis, this was when we raced 15 minute heats. Jeff won by a big margin and started the OMC domination of Mod 50.
