I'm certainly all in for another dyno "contest" here.  Mark & Chris should, I'd think, come up with the target number(s) and we'll go from there.  How 'bout it, gentlemen?  Wanna let us bet on what you get out of the new engine?  Maybe two numbers - HP and torque, okay?  Do you want a deadline date assigned or should we simply close the "balloting" the day before the dyno or - - what?  I'll come up with some kind of prize(s) -- maybe t-shirts specific to the awesomeness of the to-be-built-and-run motor.  Any other ideas?

Andy and I made a new battery tray last night---today I will get a new batt.  if the old one will not hold a charge

The sensation of putting a lot of the stuff back in is bring back the feelings of almost having a new race car---we cant wait to start putting the oil lines back in and pre oiling this thing.

the anticipation of scurrying around checking for leaks, weeps, and loose things with the sound of the 565 making its wakeup sounds ---the only thing better---

visiting the Mayor and being able to enjoy & participate in one of his sunrise rise departures!!!!

 cheers

Francis came up today---we had a very good day!!!!!!!!!!!

03  first pict is the new canopy down and in place the way it will "ride"

01  is the latch mech. that is on the outside of the body and canopy

04 shows that we are not giving up much in that it does not sick up above the main tank when we apply PP logic:
" it doesn't much matter how you open the hole it is all about how you close the hole"

we think we will be OK!!

Our dear friend ---the purveyor of Murphy's Law--- paid us a visit over the weekend---my shop AC died.  Of course it would be in the hottest most humid time of the year---
 we have another on order-- a 25,000 btu window unit with a hoped for 8 quart dehumidifier capacity ---so today and tomorrow I will be cleaning out the corner and the HD work bench so that I can get it over to the corner so that we can use it to stand on to install the AC

It hasn't helped that our monsoon season has started early this year-- the humidity is way up right now.

Hey Sparky,

If it gets too hot in the shop to work, retire to the house for "chilled beverage racing" . . . . . . . . .   grin

You might not get as much done, but after a couple, you don't care!!
