Presents
A High Tech Blast From The Past
The Great Flow Bench Rebuild

In 1972 I built what proved to be the 1st flow bench in the San Joaquin Valley. I used it to generate port templates for many champianship racing ventures from 1972 until 2001, as well as for the FE Ford powered dragsters belonging to Al Vanderslice & myself. When we moved out of the house where it was, I took the flow bench apart & put it in storage

When we bought the house we now live in, I took the flow bench from the storage & stacked up all the parts & pieces in the corner of my shop, as can be seen in the picture on the left, It remained there for the next 6 1/2 years. In October 2016 I began building a 1" square tubing frame for it, as shown in the picture on the right.

The picture on the left shows the flow bench at about 3/4 finished, with it complete in the picture on the right. The biggest job of all was drilling & tapping the 350 holes it took to attach the outer wood skin.

The pictures above show a highly modified C1AE-A head that I ran on my dragster "Back In The Day". These were the heads from my "2:1 Rocker Motor". Theae head flowed within a wisker of double what a C1AE-A flowed unmodified & 40% more than a stock medium riser. All with the help of this flow bench.
