|Several people have put the SOHC "Cammer"
into their E.R.A. This one actually belonged to our General
Manager, Peter Portante. Horsepower is around 550, but the car doesn't
feel fast just "piddling" around town. Torque is meager below 4000
The Cammer is BIG. Many modifications were necessary to fit it into the car:
|A "turkey pan" and original style expansion tank were modified
to complete the proper look for the engine. Hard to see here, but the
steering column comes within a fraction of an inch of the valve cover.
Everything is very tight, including your right foot!
It was necessary to move the alternator down under the right cylinder head. A tiny Chevy Geo unit was substituted for the Ford unit.
