My name is Bill Terry. In the early 1900's, my grandfather, William Terry had the first Chevrolet dealership and shop south of St Louis. Ever since then the sons, of sons, and grandsons of the those sons carry on the parts and machine shop.
In the mid 50's i built and raced Triumph motorcycles. During this time I also assisted my father in manufacturing outboard motors, called "Terry Trollers". We produced over 6,000 units.
In 57 we built our first British engine. Then racing E-types in the early 70's with the engines and parts we built. I have race in most major vintage racing and con-course competitions throughout the country for the past 20+ years.

We measure flywheel H.P. corrections for barometric pressure, humidity, and temperature. We do not use MFG. correction factor. 3.8 & 4.2 E-type good engine will have up to 190 flywheel H.P.. Jaguar listed it 265 H.P.. All auto MFG. had a correction factor.
My first engine dyno'ed at 256 H.P.. 9 H.P. under advertised H.P. but a good race engine in its day. In 1990 we broke 302 H.P. and set or goal at 400 H.P. Listed are some dates and H.P. readings over the years
