New fuel injection on new Drag Race School car
The first LOWE Fuel Systems vertical injector assembly. At 45 square inches of area it is big enough to serve almost any application. We are doing the testing on the unit on the school car to make sure the bugs (if there are any) are all worked out. So far so good it is performing very well. The injector bolts on to a standard injector opening and will work on supercharged applications very well. We prefer this type of injector for dragster applications as it allows us to "grab" the clean air from above the roll cage to feed the engine with slightly pressurised air, free supercharging if you wish to call it that..

Thermo-hygrometer
Thermo-hygrometer (accuratly measures both temperature and the amount of water in the air). Keep track of the air conditions youself. Get instant temperature reading in Farenheight or Celcius and a humidity reading as well. LCD dispay of that reads in 1% humidity readings and .1 degree temperature readings. A perfect compliment to the altimeter (PN 89262-00002) and the Patrick Hale Air Density program (PN89262-00003) both shown below. 5 3/4" long and powered by two LR44 batteries that will last for 4400 hours under constant use. Part number 89262-00001

Altimeter
Altimeter
An altimeter is a very accurate tool for measuring small changes in air pressure which will make big differences in your cars performance. When used with the density software below and the thermo-hygrometer above you can track very small changes in the density altitude which will allow you to keep your engine in perfect tune or adjust your dial in for the perfect run. PN89262-00002

Patrick Hale software
Density software
Patrick Hale's air density software allow the racer to read the air conditions and make adjustments to the fuel system for maximum performance or to the dial in for DYO cars.   Quit guessing and have your information at your fingertips. You will need a computer to load the software on but you need one at the race track anyway to keep all your information for your race car. By the way Patrick is not just a software geek but he is a class racer in NHRA's Competition Eliminator so he understands race cars and "tests" his software every race day. PN89262-00003

Pinch valve (for fuel system)
Pinch valve
Lowe Fuel Systems have introduced a new pinch valve to allow the racer to add or remove fuel to the engine while making a pass. A 12 volt control solenoid opens or closes the valve as the racer desires adding or removing fuel from the system. This can be activated by a timer, a gear change or with a push button. Often called a "lean out" valve it is only a lean out valve if it opens and sends some fuel back to the fuel tank. If it closes and stops some of the flow back to the tank then it is a "enrichment valve". The valves are available as dual action (both normally open and normally closed depending on how the unit is plumbed) or a single action as just a normally open or closed. By adding the jet adapter you can adjust the amount of fuel you with to redirect. The valve comes with a 1/4" NPT ports and flows a substantial 86% leak across the valve opening. Valve comes with a mounting base so it can be bolted to a bracket if desired. Valve in photo is equipped with the optional jet holder.

Dual action 12 volt solenoid part number 35773-00001
Single action 12 volt solenoid (normally open) part number 35773-00005
Single action 12 volt solenoid (normally closed) part number 35773-00006

Leak Checker
Leak checker
The KLRC leak checker is the most accurate leak checker available with laboratory grade gauges and regulator. The unit is calibrated to the world standard of 80 @ 80. The leak percentage gauge reads in percentage of leak. We selected the best components available because you need your leak checker to be as accurate as possible. If you were checking your bearing clearances you would use a micrometer not a tape measure. The components are available separately if you want to assemble your own tool. The quick disconnects are all high flow so as to not distort the leak checker readings. There are other leak checkers on the market that are better looking but none more accurate than this one. As you can see in the photo if you were to skimp on quality and make a cheaper unit the only place you could do that is by using cheaper regulators or gauges. If you do that then you are compromising accuracy and if that is OK with you then purchase the cheaper units. Just don't complain when you do not get the results you need.  

Leak checker gauge assembly includes regulator, manifold fittings, master leak gauge, inlet pressure supply gauge, inlet and outlet quick disconnects, and a 2 meter connection hose assembly with quick disconnects. part number 89164-10000

Accessories

Start line control
Start line control kit
Stage control or starting line control cylinder and valve kit.
This is very useful for not only *DYO cars but class cars as well.
For DYO race cars it allows you to stage the car at idle with the throttle pedal all the way open. The valve opens the throttle wide open once the transbrake is released, then just before the delay in the box releases the engine is at the chip limit set in the MSD. This does several things. One it prevents someone from burning you down on the start line. This is not so much engine  temperature but trans temperature. We have observed the temperature of the fluid coming out of the converter while at stage rpm will skyrocket from 160F to 280F in less than 2 seconds. This is not only hard on the converter and trans but causes inconsistency in the vehicle elapsed time. Neither of which is a good thing. The solenoid powers the cylinder in both directions. When you activate the unit the throttle pedal goes to the floor and the car continues to idle. When you release the unit the throttle pedal is already on the floor held there now by your foot and the cylinder is powered in the other direction to open the throttle. By installing a optional bleed valve you can regulate how quick the cylinder will open.

* DYO means "dial your own" index meaning you select the handicap or bracket racing.

Start line control assembly installed
Here is the unit installed on our Drag Race School car. The cylinder simply installs between the end of the cable and the normal throttle linkage connections. Basically you just move the cable mounting position to suit the new application.

--- Crank support ---

Ford Cleveland/Fontanna cranksupportFord Cleveland / Fontanna crank support kit
Front crankshaft support / Supercharged application
Photo shows how the crank support interacts with other hardware.

The front of the crankshaft on a supercharged engine takes a lot of strain from the pull of the belt turning the supercharger. On some applications it takes up to 800 horsepower to just turn the blower at full boost. The front of the crankshaft was never designed to take this type of side load and because of this side load it will cause the crankshaft to fail prematurely at the radii on the front of the first rod journal. On a supercharged engine it is not if the crank will fail it is when. If you back fire the engine for some reason and nothing happens except you just break the belt ask yourself what amount of energy did it take to break this belt and how did this energy manifest itself in the crankshaft. The belt broke because the engine kept turning when the supercharger stopped (or wanted to stop) because of a spike of excessive pressure in the manifold (from the backfire). What did it do to the front of the unsupported crankshaft ? What you did not realize is that although you do not see the damage you probably just cracked the crankshaft on the number one rod journal. Though it will still run (probably) the crankshaft just had over half of its normal life eliminated.. Now what did that cost ? A KLRC crank support will usually double the life of a crankshaft making the KLRC crank support on of the best investments you can make. If you crankshaft costs $2000.00 (or more) and lasts 40 runs before it cracks beyond safe use and you can get 70 or 80 runs with a KLRC crank support then the KLRC crank support should be worth $2000.00.(or more) JUST THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU USE IT.

The KLRC crank support attaches to the lower four bolt holes in the front of the engine block with studs. The crank support side plates slide on the studs and the front bearing plate goes on after the side plates. The crank spindle attaches to the center of the crankshaft and the bearing that rides in the front bearing plates goes on the end of the spindle. The KLRC crank support has adjustment built into the design to allow for differences in crank tunnel bore but once the adjustment is set you can disassemble and reassemble the engine with out having to readjust the crank support. The KLRC crank support comes black anodized with a complete set of instructions to install the kit correctly. If you have a desire for a color other than black anodized please ask when you order.
