Looks like we need to pull four sleeves out.  We will try the dry ice method and if it doesn't work then we will have to pull the engine and get the sleeves out that way.  Almost starting over!

Sorry to hear that Troy, but go back and look where you were 4-5 months ago and you won't be starting over.  You guys and your mom have accomplished a lot and when you look back on things this will be a small hiccup.  I'm glad to see you are trying to fix it right.  I wasn't real keen on the put something in the hole deal.

Hope you still get to run in November,

Over all the water leak was pretty small, but who knows how much would accumulate during a warm up and then a run.  We'll get it fixed soon enough.

Today we pulled the drive shaft, tranny, blower system, engine, bellhousing, clutch and all of the pistons out of the engine.  We also pulled two stubborn sleeves out.  Here are some pictures from today.

Oh ya, we will be pulling the crank and cam out so we can make sure everything is clean on the inside.  Hopefully we can get it all back together before the last meet.

You know in NHRA they do all that in less than an hour and a half.

Sleeves are all out, they need to cleaned and put in the freezer.  The block needs to be cleaned and then re-assembled.  We will try to get as much done as we can on Wednesday.  I will keep this updated.

That's what were pushing for.  Everything is already fabbed so it should go together quickly.  Did I say it should go together quickly?
