Well it IS a nice place.   And the food is good enough to NOT kill you . . . . . .

AND, besides, if you are ever in the megapolis that is downtown Gilmer IL, your choices are limited.   :-D

Including the chilled and fermented beverage list.    Which I can't comment on, 'cause all I ever drink there is Coca-Cola, "high test mit caffeine bitte."

BUT, you can get your "Pub Burger" rare.    An important consideration.    Although you can't possess an inherent fear of BSE . . . . . . .

midget,

Received an email inquiry from Flatout gaskets asking about the status of that project.

Have you heard anymore from your favorite K engine designer?

What say you?    I'll forward your response.

In my head this was read as Gomer Pyle.

I miss a good Chicago Italian Beef sandwich; it's one of the things, including Lou Malnati's deep dish pizza (now often called "Chicago style"), that spoiled me when in lived in the 'burbs'. My office was just up N. Lincoln Ave. from Lou's and right around the corner of Devon from Gerber Plumbing.  

Someday on the Salt, Mark, we'll catch up on the past 40 years or so.

As long as we're in a "Golllll-eee" and "Shazaaam" mode -

Don't know if any of you subscribe to the Speed-Talk board, but they've got a pretty decent deal going on a suite of simulation software programs - if they can get 200 to commit, the buy-in is $100.00 bucks for Engine Pro, Quarter Pro, Density, Fourlink, Clutch Pro and Bonneville Pro.  If they get 250 preorders, they're throwing in Pipemax.

midget,

Do you want to order the molding compound for molding the combustion chamber shape?

Since I have the heads, should I do it?

Looking to get a jump start on the piston dome shape.

Rover Wellington* – a favorite of the Midlands working class - typically served braised in a glycol/petroleum gravy or prepared in - or AS - a pressure cooker.

Bake in a preheated 225 degree oven on middle rack for 70 minutes until internal temperature reaches 180 F.

Serve with Old Speckled Hen.

 

Actually, I’m just checking for what kind of bore growth we’re seeing in the casting.  This is to determine the proper OD for the sleeves we’re looking to have made.  We’re done with the factory “slip-fit” arrangement.

Room temp 70 F   
   
                Longitude      Width
1            3.314         3.313
2            3.314         3.315
3            3.315         3.315
4            3.314         3.314

Heated to 180 F       Checked with a TruTemp #3519 instant read thermometer . . .

             Longitude      Width
1            3.322         3.320
2            3.320         3.321
3            3.320         3.321
4            3.321         3.320

Checked mid bore, but top-to-bottom never wavered more than .001

*not recommended for those with a low iron condition.

I love it.
Just awesome Chris.
I thought I was the only one that used the oven. :-D :-D :-D
Years back when I was still learning the Carbon thing I had a mold
with Carbon, epoxy etc in the oven. Not the smartest move.

Yours is a cleaner job. :cheers: :cheers:
