Is "placed" akin to "filled"?


AAAhhhh, NO!

What "Placed" REALLY means to suppliers is:

We are going to think really hard about producing parts for you "off brand perverts" masquerading as "real racers", BEFORE deciding if we will allow ourselves to be bothered by the likes of YOU . . . . . .

Took Rex's advice - picked up the Davies Craig water pump kit from Pegasus.  Comes with a 90 degree turn-out and an intake bung, relay, adapters.  Claim is it's good for a NA 2 liter, 22 gallon/min - more than adequate as a supplement to the stock pump on the K.

Given the probable plumbing, we'll likely be looking at an additional gallon of water in the header tank and lines alone.

Guy hasn't steered me wrong yet . . .

Just heard back from Mel at C&S - 4-6 weeks on the rods.

Goal is to have this on the dyno by my birthday.

Slim - is it time for another Dynothon?  wink

We are on the process of getting a Davies Craig rig, odds on you get em cheaper than us even though they're in Melbourne. They have as much computing power as Apollo 11... We might try and incorporate auto pilot into ours, that'll be ten less variables..( my ten brain cells)

When I was inspecting the parts, right there on the casing, was stamped "Melbourne" - you were the first person I thought of.

Pegasus is a stocking dealer - they're right here in Milwaukee and they had 18 in stock.  It's the DC8002 - out the door at less than $200.00 with sales tax.

They ship world-wide - as do I.

Speaking of which - Speedy Bill sent me a sump tank today.

I don't need it - Goggs - would you like it?

I was happy to find that tank. I don't want no big fat allooooooominum tank with those big sassy tig welds on it showing our car up, that I can't abide.
We're getting an EWP 150, that there belies the fact that the Davies Craig people are practical people, they see no need for creative names, it stands for Electric Water Pump 150 (litres per minute)....from what I can see it will cost us >AUD$325 with a controller.....that's about 12 dollars Amerrycan.

So I just got the bill for the rings from Total Seal.

Conversions in place, about the same as your pump, Goggs . . .

midget,

Confirming that I have received an e-mail from Total Seal stating the rings have been shipped via UPS.    Tracking info states delivery by Tuesday, 2-6-2018, by end of day.

Yes.   Thank you Rex.

Eventually, we will run with only the electric water pump for cooling.   BUT, given the ambitious build schedule for this year, some compromises are going to have to be made.    I don't think we have the time to completely re-engineer the cam drive to eliminate the stock water pump this go around.
