Fordboy -

I've got the "Availability/Price/Shipping" question e-mailed to REC for the valves.  I also asked about collets and compatibility with the Piper spring caps.  Hoping they respond faster than some other suppliers . . .  undecided

I may just have them drop-shipped to T&T, if it's okay with Tom and Lenny.

No problem sending stuff to me there.    Just remember, I'm trying to be there just 2 days per week and use the Lee Ave address.    Their old shop address, also in Gurnee, IL, is still floating around on the internet . . .

Glad for progress.   There is still MUCH to be done in preparation to run Speed Week 2018 . . . . . . .  and I'm supposed to be "retired" . . . . . .

You young punks gotta understand:  ELVIS is dead.    Dead Horse        And some of us older guys aren't feeling so good . . . . . .   wink

 cheers

midget,

For reference:

For the 4 REC valves I have been using for flow testing, dimensions for the stem Ø

REC 740 Exhaust valves:    Stem Ø  .2346"   (nominal 6mm)
REC 739 Intake   valves:    Stem Ø  .2346"   (nominal 6mm)

6mm = .23622"

The valves are marked with Work Order numbers as follows:

REC 740 Exhaust valves:    W/O 25956
REC 739 Intake   valves:    W/O 25813

Valve from the same batch lot SHOULD be dimensionaly consistent.

Inquire from G&S for the W/O number on their inventory for anything you might order.

So these valves are appropriately sized to be oil pressure relief valves for a "Rat" . . . . . . . .

 cheers

Marquette, Iowa, tacking towards the Twin Cities on the Great River Road in the MG.  Derelict, I am.  Kurt's sending his stuff out these days.

Tangent: 

A buddy is heading to Milwaukee Tuesday.  I suggested the Microphone Museum - and he's chomping at the bit to see it.  What door should he enter and ask for Bob?

midget,

Not sure if you have returned from the "Cities of the Twins" yet, perhaps you were waylaid by Paul B. and "Babe", his Ox.    More likely you were waylaid by a "misplaced" case of PBR . . . . . .   shocked

If, perchance, you have returned to the fair kingdom of "Beerhaven", mit schwein hock, wurst und kraut, bitte, is there any news to share regarding the arrival of cam und valve train bits?

Or is the shipment being processed by the Pie-eyed Piper of Piper?   Or some other unknown jester from the fair Kingdom of Suds?

Inquiring minds want to know . . . . . . . . . .

 cheers

Pie-eyed - and seeing double in Twinkie Town.  Bauhaus Brew Labs - a nice facility for a wedding and reception -

http://bauhausbrewlabs.com/

Gemütlichkeit!

Just got back - the B performed flawlessly - the drive was the equal of the PCH last year in the rented Miata, without the fear of mudslides, but requiring the constant horizon scanning of the horizon to prevent Bambi-cide.

G&S order and the Elise Spares orders are both due on Thursday - I went ahead and arranged to have them delivered to my workplace.  I've got the Piper cam wheels down stairs along with the cam-lock to hold everything in place for changing out the head.

Back to work tomorrow - I have to onboard a new salesman first thing, then tabulate the results of an employee survey conducted on Friday.

Mark - you be around Thursday night?

midget,

Danke!

Bambi-cide??   Is that some cheese-head ritual slaughter of our Odocoileus virginianus friends, utilizing secondary school specific T-shirts?


After 6pm, in residence @ the "Restful Ranch".    Visitors welcomed, fermented beverages . . . . .   pre-chilled . . . . .   and abundant!!

You might want to call ahead for a reservation, . . . . . . . and to confirm it's not the "Hotel California" . . . . . . . .


 cheers cheers cheers
