Not talking about other rolleyesHuh? grin

Don't be shy now. evil

You're not the first or last. grin grin grin

Go well, when you leave. Mike.

OK, OK, getting in a hurry catches us, I mean when you forget to torque the head Subaru leaks rolleyes

  BIG apology from head torquer , but a lot of respect from me for no excuses.

 Trans repaired and faulty regulator may be to blame for problem, 110 miles to Owens but great to go there on a Sunday and Scotty fixes every thing.

  Fuel pump is leaking from cam drive shaft so calling Waterman Pumps in morning,

 Checking with RCD on blower pulley also. Will have all parts shipped to Wendover now.

  Never had so many THINGS GO WRONG  when just fine last run.

  AND this is weird, get home from Scotty's. park in new house's garage, get about 20 min sleep before Troy comes to install trans. Troy arrives, I get in SUV back out of Garage and forget to turn and back into
Oak tree grin Screw up bumper rolleyes Linda comes down to shop, gives me grieve about not turning, does some cleanup in shop, I say instead of walking back to house [about 300 ft] in dark, take the SUV. Linda jumps in and BACKS into my tractor [it's dark and tractor not usually parked there] man was I laughing  grin Just a scratch on her side but major dent on mine. Weird though.

Hurry is a state of mind and that is where Mr. Murphy and his law dwell. I find if I slow down things actually go faster and better. I live in the Sub's so I have not hit my tractor but I have squashed a few bikes and skateboards that were left in the driveway behind my truck. Luckly the kids that left them there we not present.

Good racing and hope you put up the speed you are looking for.

  Truck loaded Monday, car into trailer today, heading to Bville Wed morning.

  RCD was machining blower pulley yesterday, and shipping to Wendover.

  Seal for fuel pump should be here today.

The most luck you need, forget the tree and the tractor.....is SHIPPING TO WENDOVER.

That is the biggest gamble in the entire car project.

Red Lable is at least 3 days to Wendover. By then the salt should be dry.

The neatest thing about Wendover is if you get a STD it doesn't show up until at

least twice the usual incubation period.

STAN.....it is alway possible to get your package Drop Shipped in WELLS.

Just remember, there is an added fee for after hour deliveries.

 They said they shipped it Red Label so it should be there when we get there. Waterman shipped next day yesterday from north of Frisco and was here today 15 miles out of Clovis, at 9 am grin

 Stop by, have a beer, Margaritas at end of day or rainy. cheers

  Loaded and ready to roll at 6 am.

JL222, I'm not talking about Clovis.

I'm talking about WENDOVER.

We have had serious delivery problems in Wendover.

Maybe it's better now, but I still have doubts.

Of course with racing delays it's a moot point.

Lets not talk about items that were not torqued.

Target550 can relate to that.

That's because they don't actually land in Wendover, the UPS plane flys over low and they kick your package out the back door. Saves on runway fees. Smiley

Actually I got two FedEx boxes right on time in 2011. But I did learn, when I sent them to the hotel Montego Bay that the hotel has a central receiving dock down by the theater. I was told to wait  there to cut a few hours out of the process. It takes them a while to sort and deliver to the individual hotels. So keep that in mind if you ship to any of the big three casinos.

We received our blower pulley and belt as we checked in, no problems at all.  Now we will move our trailer to the back corner of the Red Garter parking lot next to the Valley Fever streamliner and take the car out and work on it.  Maybe even start it? grin. Time to eat breakfast now, late night parting with the Valley Fever crew. cheers

  Yeah, late night partying, next time I'm bringing a jigger instead of guessing on the tokillya grin Finding out our intercooler was leaking water into the intake system didn't help, even though we got it down to a slow leak after a case of Alumaseal and a bottle of head gasket sealant.

 We weren't as bad as the next night when they had to duct tape a crew member from the Carbonite crew to a chair to get him to shut up and sit down shocked grin
 
  Don't think intercooler can be fixed as its seems to be leaking from core and not a bad weld on sides. We would have ran with slow leak by making sure no water was in intercooler tank and turning on pump just after getting OK to run. Hoping air pressure would hold back water and not using our water injection.

ive heard others claim to have new found intercooler leaks after using water
sourced from the spigot at truckstop at access road.....

at any rate, a few years ago we had the engine cutting out at around 5500 to 6000 rpm
on a 10.000 rpm engine, consistently, thought msd problem, thought other ignition problem, thought
fuel delivery quirk....no evident on salt, but at home found internal intercooler leak , task to have intercooler cut apart and core change etc, walla engine running problem fixed

I thought as well that the boost pressure inside intercooler would surely have been enough to overcome the low water pressure and keep water from becoming problem with intake mixture, but was wrong
