Henry Hawk

The story of Henry Hawk is a simple one. Henry is the name of the little Chicken Hawk in the loonie toons cartoons looking for a chicken. He runs into Foghorn Leghorn who is 20 times his size, and the stories begin.

. Henry Hawk is very similar. He should be a little too small to play with the big boys.

He will look like a total punk, but should have a mean streak that runs deep.

He is a standard high nickel four bolt small block bored to 4.030

His small stroke crank is a Bryant Billet with lots of lightening.

Lentz billet rods run the length of 6.200, and have been coated with oil shedding properties.

Carr bolts hold the big ends of the rods fastened tight.

The rods hold on an extra long Precision Performance Product maraging wrist pin.

Those connect to a custom Venolia piston with full friction and heat barrier coatings coatings.

Akerley and Childs made the unique ring package.

Pro Lightning cast iron heads allow air in and out of the engine.

Wannabe Buzzz did a little "Helping" with the air path and chamber work.

Stainless steel shaft mounted rocker arms take messages from a custom ground billet roller cam.

The Jesel belt drive system will be hiding underneath a custom cover to look like a stock front cover.

The jesel will time the cam to open the severe duty valves against the SuperClean valve springs and Titanium retainers.

Morel built the 'Ultra Pro Series' roller lifters that shove pressure through the custom Manton push rods.

Henry will be painted nice and glossy for easy clean-up and stock appearance,

But with a color to match one of the colors in the carbon-fiber Biesemeyer boat.

He looks awful patriotic bolted up to Wannabe Pauls House of Kolor candy red engine stand.

Henry should surprise a thing or two when he is thought to be a stock iron headed bullet.

Check back in a month and a half for Dyno numbers.

Just don't get sucked into racing Henry because he looks simple.

Just like his big brother, there will be more going on than meets the eye.

Vroom - vrooom!
