Tony Morris (left)
t’s been a tough year for the motorsport community on the West Coast, as far as losing friends, but it was made much tougher on July 14 with the passing of Tony Morris. The story of Tony Morris is a well-known one in Canadian road racing. From racing as a young man in his native Scotland, under a pseudonym so his parents wouldn’t know, to working for Dunlop tires as their racing rep, counting the likes of Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart as friends. Tony, a star driver through the years of Westwood, and a race winner in the Players/GM series, did it all in Camaros. Getting his son, known to all as Junior, into racing and the auto events business was a great source of pride, as was his dedication to sharing his tremendous skills through training many drivers to be winning racers. Tony also spent many years forging meaningful relationships with the likes of some of us here at RPM Media while managing the Porsche press fleet here in Vancouver. Beyond his absolute dedication to the brand, it was his unfailing ability to make everyone that he came in contact with feel like they truly mattered to him... and they did. Perhaps above all, it was his story telling and his genuine interest in the things that his friends were doing, along with his generosity of spirit and sense of humour that endeared him to us all. Tony was one of a kind… and will be sadly missed by many, as witnessed at his heart felt Celebration of Life gathering, held recently at the former site of countless racing glory moments on the mountain at Westwood. He is certainly missed greatly by us here at RPM Media.

Period Correct Hot Rod
Dave Love’s 1928 Ford AR Roadster Story and photos by Cam Hutchins
s a young lad of ten years old, a friend of Dave Love’s dad, dropped off a couple of boxes of old car magazines. One look at Tom McMullen’s hot rod on the cover of the September ‘64 Popular Hot Rodding magazine was enough to hook young Love and make him decide that one day he would own a hot rod. McMullen’s car was iconic and also appeared on the cover of Hot Rod magazine and on the cover of the Surf Music compilation album called Shut Down. Love did not want to build a reproduction, but studied all sorts of rods. When he was finally able to drive, his first cars were the full gamut of muscle cars.... ‘68 Chevelle, ‘67 Mustang fastback and a ‘68 Camaro SS.
PERFORMANCE PLUS MAGAZINE OCT/NOV 2016
His first “hot rod” was the old Bert Straiton ’39 Willys Pickup gasser that had gone through a few owners and was in need of full restoration. The car needed to go back to the era of when Straiton sold it in the fall of ’68 so he could afford to go to barber school. This car is rumoured to have been at a muffler shop in Langley for years and pushed in and out every day for over a decade. It was in pieces when purchased from Vic House in the Summer of ‘98. The “Hairy Canary” Willys was completed in 2001. After a year of driving it, the lure of a Dick Courtney - style Model A roadster saw Love searching for a proper candidate. Searching through “Old Autos” newspaper (out of Ontario) one day, he found a ‘28 AR Roadster body that seemed perfect for $2,500. The owner would even deliver it, as he was driving his kid out to university on the West Coast. The roadster body and frame were tied to the roof of the Minivan which also contained a tired old Honda 650. After delivering the roadster and dropping off his kid and minivan at school, he drove the motorcycle home, but broke down somewhere in Montana and took the bus the rest of the way. The cost of the 1928 body’s delivery was $500. After doing some metal work, the body was sold a year later for $4,000 USD, when the CDN dollar was super low, so he could purchase a second better body for slightly more than the first as well as a 59A flathead. Again, the body was sold in favour of a better body, but he kept the motor and pocketed a $600 profit. The motor just proves this
car is much more than the sum of it’s parts. The 276 flathead came out of a white ‘32 Vicky with a green plexiglass roof. This Vicky ran around Kamloops for years, but, before powering the Vicky, the motor had propelled a front-engine dragster at Cobble Hill Drag Strip on Vancouver Island during the ‘50s. Apparently, the dragster chassis may still be around...another story or another build may follow! The perfect AR roadster body appeared in the form of pieces, but it had been partially restored by one of the Model A clubs in Washington State and was sold by a fellow from Portland who bought it off the club. The early 1928 Model AR bodies were distinctly unique in that they had the emergency brake bolted to the frame on the left side of the driver’s seat and came up through a hole in the floor. This was Henry’s original design for Model A’s for approximately the first three months of production before switching to the more conventional E-brake placement. Next came 1932 ASC frame rails with front/rear Model A cross members and an original 1932 “K” member and deuce pedals. A dropped ‘n drilled ‘33 front axle with split wishbones complete, was found in a barn in Chilliwack. A trip to the LA Roadsters Father’s Day swap meet produced a Halibrand quick change. The ’36 banjo was found in Richmond and has 4.11 gears, but with the quick change spur gears, it is currently approximately 4.47 to handle the 32-inch Bedford rear tires. Another sweet find for Love was a reproduction Duke Hallock windshield. Hallock was an L.A.-based engineer in the thirties who only built six of these windshields...of which three of the originals are known

to exist today. The Steve Sellers reproduction was modelled after the legendary Dick Courtney ‘28 Model A that also sits on ‘32 rails. The front end has ‘33 Ford Houdaille shocks while the rear is traditional tube shocks. Brakes are 1939 Lincoln up front, the first year for Bendix brakes mated to “C4 Racing” backing plates. These rare backing plates were also found as “NOS” (New Old Stock) at the LA Roadster show. The rear brakes are 1940 Ford “Juice” brakes. The engine is a highly modified 1947 Ford Flathead 59A. The mill has new French rods and Ross pistons, and is bored and stroked to 276 cu. in. from the original 239 cu. in. Other modifications to the engine include ported intake runners, relieved combustion chambers, 1.5/1.6 stainless steel valves, and an Isky camshaft among other “Hot Rodding” tricks. The intake manifold is an original Harrell tall 2X2 running original Stromberg 97s fed by an Edmunds “flying saucer” fuel regulator, while the heads are original Navarro castings. A prewar AERO Aircraft oil filter is used with a modern cartridge inside and was sourced from Cam Grant’s massive collection of cool parts. Although the motor was bought as a runner and powered the roadster for three summers, it was in need of a rebuild. Once the decision was made, it was freshened up and finished at 3 am…four hours before heading to Deuce Days in 2013. The flathead is mated to a Ford Toploader 3-speed gearbox with a ‘39 Ford “Swan” shifter. The practice of using a 1932 grille on a Model A is well known, but this grille has a mysterious past. Dave Boyce had it hung on his shop wall for 25 years before selling it to Love. Boyce always wanted to use it on a hot rod because of its cool PERFORMANCE PLUS MAGAZINE OCT/NOV 2016
look and thought it came from some commercial vehicle from Europe. The grille had no shiny plated pieces, and after extensive research on the internet, Love has no idea where it was originally used. Love had a plated grille manufactured locally and the shell was extended to better fit the front of his car. An original ‘32 rad was used and rebuilt by Richardson Radiators in Langley.

The unique bullet-styled headlights are from an English firm, Edmonds and Jones (E&J), and were used on various cars in the twenties, including the 1925 Jordan Playboy, as auxiliary lights next to its massive 12-inch headlights.

the sweet blue and the car was sprayed in nitrocellulose lacquer by Love and his neighbour who had never painted an entire car before. Using the very traditional quick drying lacquer, the body was sprayed five coats in Love’s garage and sanded with 600 grit a week later. Then five more coats followed by 1000-grit sanding and polishing. The result was far better than expected from two very passionate newbies! The dry lakes-inspired interior is a cool collection of parts, many of them with stories of their own. The seats are NOS, were used in the B-17 Bomber starting in ‘39, and sourced from a surplus warehouse in Tennessee which, at the time, had seven pairs still in boxes for $500 a pair. They only wanted cash... no money order, Paypal or cheques. Not knowing anyone in Tennessee, Love turned to the H.A.M.B. and found a local member willing to cash his money order and finalize the deal. The 1943 USAF-issued seat belts keep driver and passenger firmly in the seats. The car now has a 1932 Auburn dash with the gauge panel from a 1932 Lincoln running late ‘40s Stewart Warner gauges. The steering wheel is a 17-inch Bell turning a vintage Schroeder Sprint car cowl steering set-up. This period-correct hot rod rides on Ford 18-inch Accessory wheels, AKA milk truck wheels, typically found on utility vehicles and ambulances. Love like the way they looked on Belly Tankers, on which they were run to keep the car from dragging on the Salt. The front tires are Firestone 450-18 and the rears are Bedford 750-18’s. Love first drove the roadster in 2011 and has since been to the last two Deuce Days and many local shows, as well as the World Famous Swindler poker run out of Conway, WA. One year it arrived at Bonneville on a trailer only to find the Salt Flats was a large lake due to a sudden rainstorm. Going to the 2016 “Race of Gentlemen” at Pismo Beach will definitely complete the journey from a young child’s dream to the incredible achievement of building a Hot Rod to inspire more kids!

LS ENGINE SWAP
Story and photos by Albert Vandervelde
here’s no doubt that modern V8 engines are producing more stock power with better mileage than only a handful of years ago. The standard in light truck V8s is 380+ horsepower these days, and that has crept up from the low 300s just a few years ago. The GM LS engines are no different and have gone through an array of generations in the basic platform that is still used in the entire GM V8 line up - Corvette, Camaro, GM trucks and SUVs. Displacements change while block size stays the same, making it easy to fit aftermarket goodies. Displacements include a 4.8, 5.3, 6.0 and a 6.2, and early engines also came in a 5.7-litre version. They all use the same basic externals, but head designs, crankshaft timing and injectors, along with truck and car intakes, cable and drive-by-wire throttles and cylinder shut-off systems, and steel and aluminum blocks, make the hunt for an engine a little more involved than – “give me that one” off the shelf. The 6.0L and 4L80E transmission going into our project came from a reputable local wrecker of pickup trucks. Actually, they had 20+ LS-based engines on the racks, along with Hemis and Ford 5.0litres to pick from. I went with a Gen III engine rather than a Gen IV version. The Gen III has lower horsepower but also does not have cylinder deactivation to deal with. It came both in a cable throttle and a drive-by-wire throttle version, and this engine is drive-by-wire – meaning the gas pedal needs to be purchased with the engine. The engine is a 2004; the Gen IIIs went from 1997 to 2007. The Gen IV overlapped in some vehicles and went to 2015, and the current engine line-up is labelled Gen V series. The two versions in the 6.0L Gen III engines were the LQ4 and the LQ9. In the cars, they were labelled LS1 LS2, LS3 with the current LS9, packing 638-hp in factory supercharged form. Its MSRP on www.chevrolet.com is $25,509US, and the 430-hp LS3 “connect and cruise” all-in package with electronics is $13,856.00. In the trucks, the LQ9 is the higher-performance version commonly found in the Cadillac trucks, though the LQ9 was found in some other truck models in later years. Both were 6.0L or 364 cu.in. Heads on both are aluminum. I’ll touch a little on the Gen IV (LS2 and up) engines as they are common swaps as well, and come with about 40 hp more than the Gen III engines. In the near future, I’ll load one onto the engine stand for a performance build to replace the Gen III engine. The power in the Gen IV motors bumped from the low 300s to the mid 300s, and they came with cylinder deactivation for better fuel economy (there is a kit to turn this portion off for retrofits) along with variable valve timing. Both steel and aluminum blocks can be found. Keep in mind when hunting for an engine; the truck engines are far more readily available and not as sought after by the hot rod crowd as the LS-numbered Camaro and Corvette engines. If the taller intake doesn’t work for you (plus the car intakes do look better), retrofit intakes in the lower car style can easily be swapped in for better fitment. There were no issues for clearance with the truck intake in our install, so we stuck with the taller manifold. Keep in mind, all of our mods are easily transferable between the 4.8L, the 5.3L and the 6.0L with slight changes, and all perform 20 PERFORMANCE PLUS MAGAZINE OCT/NOV 2016
It’s not hard to find an LS engine in the auto wrecker, but prices vary a lot, so it’s worth shopping around. Also, truck LS engines tend to cost far less than car LS engines. The main difference is cam profiles and the taller truck intake, which does develop better low-end torque. Our 6.0L engine fully dressed with all brackets, pump, alternator, starter, air con pump, pedal, computer etc. Was $1000.00, and a 4L80 trans to match was $800.00. well and have great longevity. Our simple mods for the 6.0L were a Comp Cams cam upgrade, the Comp Cams roller rocker fulcrum upgrade, decent flowing easy-to-fit Hooker ceramic-coated exhaust manifolds, and a Holley Terminator engine and transmission management system. Getting a packaged engine with a documented compression and oil pressure test from a wrecker is a great way to start; just make sure you get a “dressed” engine that would be one with all brackets, accessories, starter, alternator, steering pump, exhaust manifolds, wiring harness, computer and gas pedal. Don’t worry about what you do and don’t need; there typically is little savings getting a stripped-down version and there is nothing worse than hunting for parts. Mine even came with an air conditioning pump and engine mounts. It was $1000.00 for the engine and $800.00 for the trans with all electronics attached. I came across another wrecker with plenty of good-compression 5.3s for $800.00 dressed – also a great choice. While the Holley computer system was a little more money than, say, an aftermarket harness and getting the computer reflashed, it gave me a lot of flexibility in engine choices, and the ability to self program as well as to laptop program, but also controlled the driveby-wire system (no extra module needed) and the cable system in one package, and transmission control with shift point management and lock-up control. With a switch of injector harnesses, the system can run any current Gen III and Gen IV engine with a reset and relearn, and can accommodate forced induction as well. Also, the engine can be run as a stand-alone with no trans control for stick shift transmission installs. That gives us a lot of options for future LS articles and engine swaps for the foreseeable future. I also ran the Terminator system in a throttle body configuration on my 5.0L Ford engine and it worked excellently, so no reason to really change up from what worked in the past. We will also cover a few of the add-ons that were needed to get the engine into our frame of choice, and in the near future we’ll do a full programming article, cooling system and start-up article to let you know how everything turned out, and maybe a dyno run as well! All-in cost for the engine less transmission has us under $5000.00 with mods, new water pump and oil pump and a re-gasket of the engine. Pretty good value for an expected 400-hp engine fully up and running.
The aftermarket is ripe with LS parts, and converting your LS to a classic carburetor, or buying a truck engine and swapping to a car style intake is easy. These two examples from Holley are just a sample of what you can buy.
The Goatbuilt brackets move the alternator to the passenger side up high and the power steering pump high on the driverâ€™s side. The air con pump stays in the stock location.
Typical configuration is the alternator up high on the driverâ€™s side and steering pump below it. The air con pump runs off its own belt, lower passenger side. Our frame was tight with a high-mounted steering gear, so some changes were needed.
While you can use the stock mounts, we picked up a set of conversion motor mounts from Novak Conversions to fit our donor frame. The mount material is a little stiffer, so there is a chance of more engine vibration, but they also are stronger with a bolt that passes through the mount, solidly holding the engine to the frame.
As we had to move around a few accessories to fit into the frame, we turned to Goatbuilt and their anodized bracket kit.
The frame mounts for the engine were welded in place, and this particular set offsets the engine to the passenger side for better steering clearance.

The stock manifolds flow well enough, but they are pretty darn ugly and covered in heat shield. These Hooker cast manifolds package really well in tight frames and come ceramic coated in several colours to prevent rusty exhaust manifolds being part of your future.
We are working on a budget build, but adding a cam, timing set and a rocker fulcrum upgrade add a good dash of power and gives some confidence that your valve train in your donor motor is in good shape. Unlike small blocks of the past, the internals of the LS engine are pretty stout and can handle large-lift camshafts with ease.
I went a little further than needed for the cam upgrade, cleaning up the engine and checking all the electric components like the twin knock sensors under the intake manifold. Glad I did it, because it seems some little critters made a nest under the intake. Thankfully the wiring was not chewed.
One of the largest lift cams Iâ€™ve ever installed in a small block. I chose this cam after spending time with the Comp Cam techs, and they assured me this fat .610-lift intake .617-lift exhaust would be just the ticket this 6.0L needed to wake it up. Â
On inspection, the knock sensor bores had some oil seepage past the gaskets, so the valve plate was removed and cleaned, and new gaskets installed.
Nothing too exciting looking at the old cam beside the new cam, but here they are

One of the strangest things was installing the cam without removing the heads and lifters. All you need to do is spin the old cam around a few times with the rockers and pushrods removed and the lifters held up in the bore, and you pull the old cam out, grease the new cam and slide it back in. Itâ€™s best to shoot a light down the cam bore to make sure all the lifters do stay up, though. Itâ€™s not unheard of to have one drop back down. Worst case, you need to pull a head off one side.
The LS comes stock with roller lifters, however they are prone to needle bearing failure.
The Comp Cams timing set is single roller but has slotted bolt holes, uses a Torrington bearing behind the upper gear, and can be adjusted both advanced and retarded a few degrees with an Allen key.
Comp Cams sells a rocker fulcrum upgrade kit with better bearings and new fulcrum shafts. The kit comes with a cool tool you use in a vice to press out the old bearings.
The timing set from Comp Cams allows for fine adjustments to timing with a small cam that can be turned with an Allen key prior to tightening the upper cam gear bolts.
The same tool with an added bearing press portion is used to press the new bearings into the rockers.

I have used Proform starters on almost every engine I’ve built and have had great success with them in performance engines. Not only are they gear-reduced for less starting effort, they can also be rotated for better fit around headers. An inexpensive insurance upgrade that also went along with a new oil pump and new water pump of OEM quality for the same reasons.
If you are using a stock-type harness and computer, you will need the TAC module to go with your drive-by-wire gas pedal. Holley’s Terminator injection system controls the pedal directly, but you need to make sure you get the right serial numbered pedal suggested by Holley.
There are many ways to get your LS engine fired up. I stepped up here and went with a Holley LS Terminator system. The computer works with all LS versions with the appropriate injector harness plug-in and will control your transmission and shift points. The kit works with both the cable and drive-by-wire system without the pedal module. The best part is, it’s self-learning as well as laptop-programmable, and is capable of managing turbos and superchargers. This makes it a very flexible set-up for future upgrades as money allows, without computer re-flash costs.
The computer doesn’t need to be installed in the cab – and on my last TBI Terminator install I installed the computer under the hood. This time, though, I’m trying to keep as many components out of sight.
The Holley system uses OEM-type plugs for all connections, for a nice factory look.
28 PERFORMANCE PLUS MAGAZINE OCT/NOV 2016
What you choose to monitor your engine is up to style. Holley has a digital dash that will plug right into the fuel injection, but for a classic look, nothing beats the flexibility of using a Dakota Digital dash. They have a wide array of styles and this is their classic all-in-one 7-inch round gauge pod.

Heatshield Products Introduces the Catch Can Shield Heatshield Products’ new Catch Can Shield enables the catch can to stay cool so oil vapour will fall out of the suspension faster, and helps reduce the amount of oil vapour ingested into the engine through the intake PCV system. It is designed to keep the catch can cool by preventing it from being heated by ambient engine heat and direct exposure to sunlight in applications that allow for it. The result of keeping the catch can cooler is much less carbon buildup, reduced chance of carbon hotspots, and cleaner intake valves and less fouling on spark plugs. For more information please go to www.heatshieldproducts.com
COMP Cams Conical Valve Springs COMP Cams’ new line of conical valve springs are made for both street and race applications. They utilize round wire and feature a diameter-driven and progressive pitch-driven natural frequency. The design of the valve springs increases the valve train RPM limit while also reducing resonance concerns and dynamic spring oscillations. This results in a longer spring life and gives your engine the ability to run more aggressive camshafts. The springs are available individually or in full sets of 16.
