I was under the car taking the drive shaft off and thought to myself it sure is nice to working on the car and being able to watch playoff games.

Ok, I'm on my home computer now.  Here is a picture of our repaired head.



We took the head in today and order new Manley valves.  The exhaust will be Inconel and the Intake will be Titanium.  We should have them back in a month, with plenty of time to get other engine components worked on.

Our transmissions in:



Our transmissions out:



Next is to take out the blower plate and the block.

the center cylinder(see picture)spark plug was a little dinged up.  A couple friends did the work, Walt did the welding and Chief did the finish work.  Both from Santa Barbara and both helped in the origional build of the car.  cheers

  All the small pinholes in the same chamber are from a previous repair job [dropped a valve in 03 resulting in a slower record
and chamber looked like hamberger]. The same guys did the repair work Walt Waiton did the welding with his trick welder that adds very little heat and therefore does not require preheating and on recent repair we didn't have to replace the seats. Chief Galbraith did the machining and replaced the seats on the welded up 03 repair on his C@C machine which was not easy because of shape.

Since our heads are in the shop and that is our main upgrade for the year I wanted to share some pictures of "Chapman Racing Heads" shop.  These guys were recommended by many Bonneville racers and I was givin direction to the shop by Larry Volk.  This shop is very friendly to Bonneville racers during speed week.  The problem we ran into wasn't Chapman Racing, it was the availability to get good valves overnight.  They really got our heads together quick and we got to finish speed week with some amazing runs after we got the engine back together.  Here are a few pictures of Chapman Racing Heads.











Big Mike is the man in charge of the shop and when you call be sure to ask for him.  They also had some pretty impressive customers on their shop board.  I know spelling will be an issue here but here I go, Genalossi and Dutweiller just to name a couple.  There were many other but these two stood out the most. cheers

...and seeing the fellow in the photo -- running -- makes a good impression, too.  They don't sit around drinking coffee!

Mike Chapman is for sure no stranger to the salt. I am pretty sure he was involved with Skidmores efforts long ago. And today he is involved with Nish and several others.

In 2008 we had a "slight overrev" on our 23* Pontiac heads. I pulled them, got to Chapman at 4pm, and was on my way back to Wendover @ 9pm with 16 new valves (needed only 15!), seats recut, etc. Big Mike is the MAN! He "borrowed" some new Manleys from another customer's build, did the same with some pedestal shims, and got us back on track. Absolutely the greatest service.    vic
