first glance of the guy walking behind the 'liner  shocked  me then I finally noticed they were still on the trailer  grin

oh the joys of running efi on the salt -- we will be doing that again and hope the "lessons" about grounds and dielectric grease bubble up to the recall area of a senior mind  grin

Hello Everyone.

We are getting ready for the 2017 racing season and I thought maybe there are some things some of you would like to know about our race program. Over the years I have posted information & pictures of things we felt you might find interesting. But we may have missed something of interest to you. So, if there are things you might like to know about or see on the race car let us know. We think this forum is a valuable resource to the LSR community, so ask away...

Hi Mike - What is the length of an air shifted Jerico shorty 5 speed from the mounting face to the end of the male greek coupler? (car is in Houston, I'm in NC, no one at the shop. I'm guessing you have better access than I have right now). I'm trying to make sure I'll have enough room to move the engine forward without major chassis mods. I know this is not the type of question you were expecting, but what the heck.

 Thanks, vic

Mike,
     Does your transmission have a breather and if so what kind?

Yes we do Jim. The top photo shows a blue 90 degree 3/8" pipe fitting. The next photo in the lower left you can see a small K&N filter connected to a 3/8" aluminum tube that connects to the blue fitting in the top photo. Not the best pictures but it's what I already had in the computer.

I guess it was common knowledge -- but not for me.

When we first ran our roadster years ago, I trusted the stock vent on the Ford 9-inch rear end.  Every run produced a mist of gear lube over the rear deck lid and below.  We then ran a hose off the vent up to near the top of the trunk area with a similar K&M filter like Mike mentioned.  We figured that if a lot ran up there, most would run back down.  Seems to have worked for 15 years.
