John, if you haven't heard the Oct. El Mirage meet may become a two day event, along with the normal Nov. two day meet...   cheers

  Yeah, hope so. I guess the biggest problem is getting enough workers from the clubs.

  It's a 500 mile round trip to El mirage not counting to Victorville, so a 2 day event gives a lot more bang for the buck.

                JL222 cheers

  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.

               JL222

  New blower hub with bigger bolt holes ordered as they no longer make the pulley with smaller holes.

  Sunday, we'll make the dust shield and install trans ballistic blankets and the cover.

  Heat up hub, to take it off to be ready for new one. Hey they said I didn't need a puller.

 Then Bar-b-q tri-tips for Troy's birthay grin

  The world is getting more flakes in it every day. Stopped and got $38 of ice for the intercooler, towed 30 miles to dyno and nobody there. The guy knew we were coming at 3:00 and was there at 1:00. After waiting for a 1/2 hr we called his partner.
 Partner says he's helping grandparents move, dropping off last load and returning U-Haul. Be there in about an hr.
 After 31/2 hrs we called and said we had, had it.
 
 Contacting another dyno shop today.

Must be nice for the dyno guy to make so much money to pass up a customer, SMH.

  WOW...400,000 hits!!  As usual if its one problem there's another to go with it. We did go to another dyno shop but engine was acting up [just not sounding right] so we went back to the shop. Two valve adjusters had come loose [ thought I had tighten them good but must not have] bent a pushrod and damaged an adjuster. Replaced them, started engine at night in shop, which was a first, roll up doors opened though, blue flames 3 ft long out of headers except for # 2 which was not firing. Problem traced
to short in wiring connection in EFI, no electric signal no fuel.
 The injector wire harness  from both sides of engine connect to main harness with a short Y harness. We tested for continuity on each wire and checked for shorting in all the other connections at same time. All tested good until connecting the Y. then shorts across connector plugs showed up.
 Will probably end up sending harnesses to F.A.S.T EFI.

Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008





                 2009



                 2010





 More from the past

            JL222

  Rob...here's the videos. The 1st one is El Mirage, car hooks up and goes 152 mph in 10.2 sec. Then track turns bad which you can see from other video.

  Another year already shocked

 Another 2 years  tongue Happy New year every body cheers

  Arley showed me some pictures of his liner at a New Years Eve party in Santa Barbara. They have a new younger guy in the shop that's been working on it, and its almost done. It really looks nice. cheers
  Still a lot of fabrication left, but maybe done by Bville.
