Fox Looks like a tremendous job for something you'll have to guard the rest of your life. I have some nice paint I don't care about guarding,so just cruise it let em look in passing. 327 with Q-jet sounds good w/ 4 speed thru the gears.

I'm with you Otto. Not good for much than showing how much work was done for a limited return.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Chain drive? What could go wrong?

If the two side engines are connected by chains to the center engine's crankshaft, how can you be sure that all three engines will operate at exactly the same rpm?

What if one engine is turning faster than the others?

Don't know, but Tommy Ivo and Mickey Thompson seemed to have figured it out.

The chains mechanically connect all three engines to one another, so if all the sprockets have the same number of teeth, they will all turn the same RPM, even if one if the engines wasn’t running.

Certainly not my cup of tea, but you got to love the ingenuity.

It's his truck. Do what you want.
