  Alignment done. Technician couldn't get over how close we got the thrust on the rear end, .09 of a decree smiley

  He wasn't going to check at 1st because he couldn't get his machine mounted because of the 60lbs of air so we dropped it to 30 psi.

  I thought I had 3/16 in. toe in but there was 3/32. We decided on 1/8 IN. Its just good to Know from a Pro job and machine
 that's it's set correctly and $89.95 grin

John, that's just one less thing to worry about. Peace of mind is important while in the cockpit. Have fun and be safe..

 We took off the manifold Sunday and sure enough gaskets were leaking, hurting boost. Throttle on data sensor on 227 indicated run was all over the place due to loose set screw. Also data showed ECU correcting with added fuel because of lean condition, plugs looked clean with soot on bottom and no heat, looked rich to me ECU showed it needed more fuel, so we richened it in favor of ECU. Sunday car would not take throttle in 3rd gear, so Troy coasted.

  Took off 02 sensor and it was covered in black soot along with sides of car. New 02 sensor on way, along with hydraulic lines
and steel coupler instead of aluminum.

 Data from run 2 limited to 175mph

 After a dead engine push start [Owens trans will not turn until engine starts] so while pushing troy has to fire engine.
 
 from  data log when Troy begins to apply throttle in 1st gear 117 in 4.2 sec, 168 in 11.4 sec staying at 5000 rpm and 170
for rest of run so as to not break out of 175 mph limit.

 All new parts arrived by last sat installed new intake gaskets with regular gasket sealer. Not using anti-seize anymore to try and save gaskets on removal of intake, Their not easy to get, but we have a spare set.

  Scotty Owens was in the area and wanted to stop by and look at the overdrive trans he built.

  He found a wear washer at rear almost gone so he took trans with him to fix washer and fix problem from happening again.

  Troy is coming out tomorrow and we'll install first 2 trans, fix rear oil seal leak and be ready to go to chassis dyno when overdrive is done.

John, I got some grey silicone from Ford, they use this stuff on the Power Stroke engines. It is great stuff.

   When we used to drag race we had a heavy paper type gasket material that would compress and sealed really well. It would tear when you removed the intake. We found that if we used 3M w/strip adhesive on the intake side and coated the other side with the old Parafin based waterpump grease that was used on the antique car waterpumps the intake would seal and the gaskets could be reused for years. I'm sure it's still available.

  Forgot to mention that we looked at all the rod bearings [top and bottom)  and they were basically like new.
 No metal flakes or specks in oil or pan.

  Today we replaced the rear main seal as it was leaking. Relieved the outer flange on the Owens trans to give more clearance
for hydraulic throw out bearing lines ( so clutch arms don't nick them) installed new lines and 1st and 2nd trans. Waiting on
Owens for trans fix for last trans and overdrive unit, This overdrive does not shift so every gear starts out in over drive.
 Installed pan and hooked up all oil lines.

  Next week going back to our original Koni shocks and springs, installing the rest of transmissions and a 2 tooth smaller
blower pulley and we should be ready to go smiley

   Scot Owens has fixed the trans. The overdrive is always working so it stresses the planetary gear more than others so he put a new one in, he also fixed it so the washer problem won't happen again, This is the only overdrive trans he's built so
teething problems show up. But no failures so far.
  Scotty has another part to deliver nearby in a couple of days which will save a long trip to his shop.

  Owens couldn't make it up hear until tomorrow so I had to make the 11/2 hr drive to Springville for trans Friday.

  installed trans and changed shocks back to originals. Rear shock change a major pain in the axs.
  Tried to install new pulley on blower and discovered bolt holes were bigger than old pulley. DANG!!
  We wanted to get on dyno before El Mirage next Sunday but some crew members are under the weather and we still need to
make a new dust shield under the bell housing and frame.
  So were going to wait on El Mirage and hope El Nino doesn't rain us out.
