WOW MR. PODUNK SIR  them are some pretty shoes for me girl Ms Liberty,  I bet she is going to love them.

May I suggest that you at least bring your camera's date/time stamp up to speed or drop it off?

Podunk,

If you need to get an incorrect date off of a digital photo, I suggest GIMP photo editing freeware.

Nice work Podunk! Love it! Can't wait too see the little lady with her new shoes in person!

Francis is coming up in the Morning should be here around 10:00 with more canopy work the camera will be at the ready!!!!!

Spud from FIE called about the old Vertex mag I scored off ebay---even though it was recently rebuild it is WEAK  only about 11 millli amps  with a couple of tweaks and one of his killer black coils  we can get it up to around 22-23  should be good for running blown gas/NA alky  maybe low boost E-85,  any way we should be able to conform to Classic Rules!!

Sparky, I most likely missed it but What car are You going to put Your "classic LS turbo" motor in?
I did not think that there was a classic Lakester class.
salt is OK, but the DIRT is where it's at!

Don't know, what may come down the Pike---for now we are going to run it in Ms Liberty  and see if we are smart enough to run gas with a blow through  and see what develops.

Hey Sparky, I have a blow through on my tank & I went at it knowing nothing & using logic. To avoid turning a good engine into a cutting torch I hooked up a 3" EGT & a boost gauge beside the tach & dialed it in that way. Correct jetting is a compromise between a fat bottom end & a lean top end. I built my own carb out of other peoples cast-off Holley parts, I am a dumpster diver after all. :roll: I can download my memory bank on this $hit if you want some help.

For those who wish to run a magneto on an early small block Ford 221-260-289motor---

  Spud at FIE  FuelInjectionEnt.com (1 541-990-2485) can supply them or adapt you mag to this early Ford dist housing.  This is the dist. drive that GM put on their frt adaptor of the LS motor.

Shop day  long over due---coming up  rear motor plates drilling sizing and fitting

I have been disposing of a giant cactus that committed suicide by consuming to much water after it started leaning several years ago---these things do not adapt to developed areas well there is too much run off.  Thank goodness there was a guy that has a small JD with a frt. loader that lives down the street and Marty has a dump trailer you can pull behind a pickup.  Three very nasty days of cutting the thing up with my small chain saw, 3 days , three trips, and $89.00 to the city dump for excessive tonnage  but we saved over $1500. for the Race Fun, fund.  We were quoted over $2000. to remove it.  Turns out the thing weighed almost 10,000 lbs---

This is the lower trunk after drying out for a week when it first fell, the ribs were much smoother from having so much water.  When I first was moving it if you broke the skin juice would skirt, then ooze out

Yeah it can be pretty eye opening on trees and the like.

Just before my dad died, a storm came through and damaged a 30 year old willow tree on the property on the channel.     The woodcutters sold the take downs for firewood so every thing was weighed before removal . . . . .

over 32,000 pounds

and they charged him $2,800.00, and that was in 1999 . . . .
