Johnboy's not planning his shipping until late June. Send me an address, maybe Graham's work so somebody will be there during the day.

You heard him Colonel.

We had our first SOS get together in several years. It wasn't all bad, actually none of it was bad.

we're pretty sure we need to change the lower frame rails in the tank in order to accommodate the sump. We have agreement about the fate of the exhaust or at least where it exits the body.....we can do this.

Actually the state of the exhaust is not quite resolved! Ideally if possible it would still be good to have it out the end if shapes permit. But if not possible we can pop out the side and utilise the old exhaust point as the extra parachute location for complying with rules for travelling over 250mph.

precisely, but that's how we all feel, and as such the issue is resolved, far more so than when we were building the car.

You left your toiletries bag at my place. :roll:

Got one but the shipping would probably be staggering.

No haven't arranged anything, was waiting to see what was going to happen with the scattershield thing.
I'm donating the Greek couplers so they can hook up their junk to the 10 bolt. There was talk of "Johnboy" having a shipment going from Colorado to Sydney & piggy backing with that but nothing organised yet.

depends who you talk to
I would like to use a multi plate clutch but I'll see how our budget looks
the only consideration for the flywheel at this stage is that it's steel
I will have to have a further look thru the reciepts and see if it indicates anything
so I don't know if its 153 or 168 yet or if it's internal or external balance
Also I need to check the pattern on the crank and see if it's got one offset bolt
In the middle of which, I am renovating my house. I'm not much of a house renovating type guy
What I need is Goggles and Hotnuts here. I'll supply the beer
Those guys are always doing stuff with timber
