So... pissing battles based solely on opinions can rage for months, but a self proclaimed skate building guru caught in the act of ripping off other people's work, not once but several times is taboo.

Not to mention, he personally attacked the very people that owned those photos and asked him to take them down

Or, what about the folks he is trying to build a business around in his opinion are mentally unstable :confused:

I feel sorry for the folks that have something built or take advice from him and then wind up back here seeking answers only to find out they might have avoided the whole thing if searching for him showed his true colors.

I just converted/upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium on my main computer. This was the easiest upgrade ever. Almost seamless. It saved all my old files, all I had to do was go and get them and transfer to locations of my choosing. It chased down several drivers and installed them for me. Usually I do not like new operating systems from Microsoft, takes a while for them to grow on me. I hated Vista and just jumped over it to 7. A good move this time around. Gotta upgrade my wife's laptop next to 7. Should be very easy and super user friendly.

Big valves and real strong springs have pounded the cast iron seats to deep into the cylinder heads. Todeep to regrind and use with hi lift cam and heavy springs again. Valve would be to far up in the head,the rocker arm ratio would be off and spring would coil bind if valve end ground off to make right ratio.

I will add the lead additive and 104 plus octane booster to the use now when I get back running. Not a everday driver just a fun truck and thats it. Old time horsepower and torque vs new stuff.

BIG Valves,big ports,big AIR!!!! Big gas use too.

It is kind of kinky when certain undergarments go from girl to guy. One could say it is a "whiff" of eroticism.

This is probably the first time such an undergarment will be sold "pre-whiffed" in anticipation of it being worn. :eek::(

Oh yeah, and AC Ace does not equal Shelby Cobra! IIRC there was only one Shelby built in the UK, and that was one of the Daytonas - which is a little different to the others since it was built to specs read out over the phone and stuff got lost in translation!

If you put a 454 crank in a 427 you get a 454. A 427 Chevy is a 454 block with a 396 crank. It is a common engine to build out of junkyard parts.

Your rod angle is not as bad. Truck(tall deck)blocks are.400 taller and so are the connecting rods. So the rod angle in relation to the cylinder is better, preventing problems at higher rpms, like piston galling and cylinder wall failures.

4.230 bore X 3.780 stroke. Begin its life as a RPM Big Block. 6000. 1963.4 Bolt mains with cross bolts. Horribale to work on. Block casting extends below the crankshaft. But they do run.

427 Truck tall block the other way. More truck pulling torque. The wrecking yards are full off them around here. Pick your own parts. Most city and state highway depts used these engines in there service dump trucks.

I often wondered why nobody trys to fix one? They all have governors on them 2. Can they be reved up with a different rod length,pistons,special pin heights??? That ain't cheap?

Is it wrong that I borrowed the battery from a Marmon (http://www.conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z12851/Marmon-Model-34B.aspx)(Indy 500 pace car circa 1922) today?

We needed a 6V battery to test something with and the customer just happened to have the aforementioned car sitting in his garage alongside a Ferrari California and Rolls Royce Silver Ghost... just happened that the Ghost had been converted to alternator operation (and therefore 12v battery)

Afraid not... it was under dust sheets (along with the rest of the collection) so I didn't take any pics :mad:

Two of the last posts I read on that thread was someone calling that certain someone a DB. The next post was from someone else mentioning to her that stuff like that would be what caused the thread to get deleted. The first person I mentioned didn't seem to ever edit her comment, and the entire thread went away.

I don't imagine it's got anything to do with libel or slander. Those are civil matters, he'd have to get a lawyer. If he could afford one of those for something other than a criminal defense, he'd actually be the authorized skate dealer he pretends to be. Instead of someone who builds skates from stuff bought from actual dealers.

Nor do I think it's got anything to do with him or his name. The thread was going fine with his name and email mentioned several times. Where it and all the previous threads about him went off the rails was the personal attacks and name-calling. He kind of brings that out in people (and engages in it a good bit himself).

I've been on a message board or three with him for about five years. Everything becomes an argument like this with him. Even if he's not presenting the work of others as his own.

In derby, I have met a lot of great people and I have met some ultra hardcore d-bags. Seems like he-who-shall-not-be-named falls in the latter of the two groups.

On a side note, did he disappear from Facebook? Can not see his personal or business pages on my account or other people's accounts. Hmmmm.

He posted on the SouthernSkater.com FB page something to the effect of "Thanks Kathie and Jessica. No more posts." I almost deleted it because it looks out of place; uncharacteristic of my page. I let it ride for now, though.

Here is the last thread posted on FEB 27th from his facebook page...

"Atkinson's SK8 Paradise-Join the Custom Revolution"

Just for the record.... I never ever was passing other people's skate pictures off as my own builds! I took some photos from Google Search and said that these are different styles that I can build! And put them in a folder called (different skate styles and designs) Are the people jealous of my many years of building custom skates. Yes our family has and was one of the first custom skate builders in ROLLER DERBY~ It lives on!!!!!!!!!

Eric Brazeau What I find amusing.. is you say you took pictures.. that said these are the differey styles that you can build? Who or what exactly said that you could build these? These photos that you took, were part of build discussion on a public discussion forum. A forum that your a member of, and you have next to NO involvement with. Its as if your there to gather information...yet not be a part of things. Its also as if.. you admit to creating 123 builds of your own...yet you own NO photos of these builds. If you built 123 custom skates.. why do you need to use OTHERS photos as to what you could build? AND for the record.. this wasnt 2 years ago.. this was just this year...

and for the record.. I will mention his name...and I have NO intention on passing this off as a finished topic. It annoys me to think that this thread was DELETED due to just someone using the DB word. Why not delete their INDIVIDUAL REPLY.. vs. the entire conversation. I mean really.. if I went on the thread "Post a Photo of your skates... some 2000+ replies.. and we delete the ENTIRE thread because someone called someone a DB in reply 2001??...

Yes.. you did.. and if you get this thread deleted cause of it.. Ill fly over to Aussie land.. and kick you dead in your roo~!

SERIOUSLY FOLKS.. how many ****ing times do you have to be told... DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONAL.. calling names.. etc.


The person in question... has done enough crapoola... to last 10 pages of content on a thread..

we need not derail the convo by stooping to calling names..

If you havent the ability to keep to the rules... leave the name calling out.. and debate with tact..*which with folks like this.. its like shooting fish in a bath tub.* stay out of the convo... and leave it those those... the enjoy the chase:)...

that cuda there, was sitting in a garage since 82, according to the inspection, owner was half bro's dad, we had to walk by this car every day till we moved out at 16, ronny was a hoarder and a alcoholic, but he left us the cuda, a 69 roadrunner, a comet gt, and a bunch of trucks an motors. this cuda is going to get a 440/427 hemi heads and a muncie 4 speed, why u ask, becouse the motor has been sitting on a burn in stand for 14 years waiting for this cuda......

Do you mean 426 hemi heads?hemi heads never heard of them being put on to a magnum 440 style block im confused a little.
Muncie , dont you have new process 4speeds to go behind that?
I thought muncie was a chev trans,maybe its the same box just different extension and bell housings.

yup 426, and the heads fit the 440, minor machine work to make things stay cool, and as to the muncie, they were put in just about everything here, im using a close ratio one that came from a dodge truck, and im using mostly junkyard/vintage parts round here, i dont have the money to buy new kit.
hot rod magazine had a whole right up back in the 80's about how to build this very setup and where to find the parts.....i think i have every peterson magazine printed since 61......

is that a oil crossover tube mod ,weld up the holes behind the camshaft oiling plate and run the crossover tube instead for high rpms.As per the mopar performance tuning manual a bob mullin modification.do you need to relieve oil pressure in the heads on these hence return oil lines as doc mentioned? would the magnum block be less prone to fractures in the valley?
muncies certainly whine like a new process.
do your muncies have straight cut gears also?

had to give doc some of the wonderful details of that motor, i run the rear returns, fronts are welded, and i cut down the valley for the pushrods and built up the valley for the top row of head bolts.......and i think all mopar blocks had valley issues but i could be wrong, and you got tot get the oil out the top end and back to the pump, doesnt do any good hangin in the head, the muncie i have does not have straight cut gears, but does whine a bit, that gear drive on the timing on the otherhand, was like a whinny cory atkinson. i have a new process that is straight cut, was thinking about putting it behind the 383 an in the cuda......

Interesting stuff ,only thought the 392 hemi had the valley issues.426 is probably the same block stretched out.cudas look fantastic .I would love to section ,channel , widen, choptop,and rake a cuda.Make it look even squat tier, with all late model susp,front and rear end etc.
