Sparky,

Keep at it buddy.

I'm certainly all in for another dyno "contest" here.  Mark & Chris should, I'd think, come up with the target number(s) and we'll go from there.  How 'bout it, gentlemen?  Wanna let us bet on what you get out of the new engine?  Maybe two numbers - HP and torque, okay?  Do you want a deadline date assigned or should we simply close the "balloting" the day before the dyno or - - what?  I'll come up with some kind of prize(s) -- maybe t-shirts specific to the awesomeness of the to-be-built-and-run motor.  Any other ideas?

SS 1  My car is not quite ready and I do not want to pass up the invitation to stay at the "Bonneville Suite"---so do not drag to T&T---I sure hate to miss it

Andy and I made a new battery tray last night---today I will get a new batt.  if the old one will not hold a charge

The sensation of putting a lot of the stuff back in is bring back the feelings of almost having a new race car---we cant wait to start putting the oil lines back in and pre oiling this thing.

the anticipation of scurrying around checking for leaks, weeps, and loose things with the sound of the 565 making its wakeup sounds ---the only thing better---

visiting the Mayor and being able to enjoy & participate in one of his sunrise rise departures!!!!

 :cheers:

Francis came up today---we had a very good day!!!!!!!!!!!

03  first pict is the new canopy down and in place the way it will "ride"

01  is the latch mech. that is on the outside of the body and canopy

04 shows that we are not giving up much in that it does not sick up above the main tank when we apply PP logic:
" it doesn't much matter how you open the hole it is all about how you close the hole"

we think we will be OK!!

Our dear friend ---the purveyor of Murphy's Law--- paid us a visit over the weekend---my shop AC died.  Of course it would be in the hottest most humid time of the year---
 we have another on order-- a 25,000 btu window unit with a hoped for 8 quart dehumidifier capacity ---so today and tomorrow I will be cleaning out the corner and the HD work bench so that I can get it over to the corner so that we can use it to stand on to install the AC

It hasn't helped that our monsoon season has started early this year-- the humidity is way up right now.

Sum is coming into town for a vist---can't wait to hear about his trip and to get him to help me wire, test and tune the data logging STUFF.

Francis may come up later also so that we maybe able to finish the CANOPY.

I know we need the AC to make that possible for us GOMs

Wow  what a great 2 days--Sum and I yesterday

Today Francis joined us from Tucson

Sum has been after the data logging

Francis worked on the Canopy--

John came over today also and he and I worked on moving the work bench taking the old AC unit out to get ready for the unit that was suppose to be here yesterday and late this afternoon we noticed it was not going to be here until Friday---2 days late!!

Thank goodness it never did get really hot yesterday or today!!

Hey Sparky,

If it gets too hot in the shop to work, retire to the house for "chilled beverage racing" . . . . . . . . .   :-D

You might not get as much done, but after a couple, you don't care!!
