Foul!  No Fair! Sparky, how can you be a racer if you've got a bank account?  Most of us, I think, have given up after having the banker to call so many times 'cause we had to buy another set of pistons or something.  Now we just keep a handful of cash under the blankets for when Brown Santa comes calling. . . :roll:

Went down to see Sr. Francis today---he has his beautiful '29 roadster out of the trailer and in the "Barn"-- he is working on it--  mounting a Mag on a SJ 2000 2.0L cam getting ready to see if it likes fuel!!

Been moving right along---getting the dry sump rebuilt---bout the pump off ebay  :-D  it had the wrong section for the oil pump for a BBC

  Barnes told me it was very common for Nascar teams to use the 1.200 for the oil pressure section---but I need at the very least the 1 3/8 section for a B'ville BBC especially with my valve spring oilers and piston crown oilers.

Have a new kid helping me some--ZACK  wants to be an engineer what really is outstanding ---a 15 year old that doesn't mind getting dirty and greasy---we changed out the front diff.-- we will have a 4x4 again---but with 4.10s instead of 3.73s---10% more towing power  :-D

Allister was my go to kid. Lived down the road. He was 12 and could outwork any grown up I know.
His dad taught him well and he took to BS from any other kid in the area. Pitty he moved but i did give him a nice going away present.
He got my used CP reciprocating saw. I miss the guy who must be about 20 by now. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
