BOB,    
        The picture I have in my head of the Horse shoe taped to the out side of the windshield has me rolling in the floor .
I am at a loss of words.  Do you think the horse shoe doesn't work all the time?  And maybe should be left on the tool box or something.


Sparky, I was just looking at rods for the 572 motor.


 Hooley

Hooley, don't look for rods like One Run has... those were destroyed like I've never seen before.  Seemed to be properly torqued bolts.

  Stainless, thanks for posting the pictures for me.
  By the way sportsfans, those pieces of two top of the line Carrillo's with forced EDM pin oiling and 260,000# Carr/SPS bolts ($2,300 a set).
  Also shown is one half of my #2 intake roller lifter roller which all came out of the oil pan.
  The bottom of #1 and #2 cylinder barrells are missing about 3/4 of a inch and thats what may be of the biggest concern.  We are preparing to mag the block to see if we can save it.

Bob, when you figure out how to keep the rods from turning black I think they'll stay in the block better.   wink

Do you prime your engine every morning before start up? Sometimes the oil will siphon from the tank through the pump into the pan. When you start the engine the tank is empty or close to empty before the pump can send the oil back to the tank and the result is....

Other issues like oil type and clearances too but hard to tell unless your there.

Buddy,
               The last I heard from Sam was he probably wouldn't be at Speed Week. You know how that goes as you get closer to time to go.  It wouldn't surprised me to seem him there.
  John has missed their wedding anniversary every time we went to Bonneville and his wife was very understanding.  I don't know if that has any thing to do with it.  He will be missed by all.
 Sumner is planning on being there.

I ordered some engine parts and turbo parts today. Working on the outer frame that goes out next to the body every day.

Later,
Hooley

Hey Hooley
Glad you are making the progress to get the 974 car ready for speedweek.
Looks like it will be a wild ride. Cliff and I are still working away at ours. We won't have it ready for speed week this year. If all goes well we might make Willington in the fall. It's all fun  Don

Don and Cliff I was hoping you could make Speed Week this year.   But Wilmington would be good too.

Lets keep plugin along.


Stainless /Bob   The carnage from that motor is more than I have ever seen.

Funny thing- i miss my anniversary everytime I go to Bonneville, too!

I'll be by John's next month, and I'm hoping to see his work on your car then.

 We will be there but not the car. My daughter is getting married. With that expense long with the car I had to slow down. Got to keep peace at home. We still are hard at it with the build. It's still fun.  We have hooked up with some racers from our area that have been a great help. Good luck and keep up the work.  Don

  I spend my birthday at Speed Week and World of Speed is my Grandson's birthday [Yes I was on the Salt when he was born in M'pls.]. I guess it's called priorities. Maybe someday he'll spend his birthday with me on the Salt.

I have been busy putting the turbos on. Sum mounted the inter-coolers when he came by.  I built a set of headers the last couple of weeks.  I just finished them up tonight and that included the waste gates. I'll try to post some pictures.

Some of the intake piping is laid out . I will try to finish that up soon.

So little time and so much to do,

Hooley
