Contrary about the mistress Dr. Goggles Ms. Liberty can be rather demanding of my time at times like these.

Thank goodness for the internet and this site---it looks like that stackable Innovate's SSI-4 PLUS and their free Logworks software will let me put together the number of rotating channels and other sensors to log the clutches stroke and slip we think we may need to get the data that Dynoroom insists on instead of just our opinions. We are late to the table with a manual transmission -- hopefully we will have a track to run on this year.

We are slowly getting the parts lined out for the 2.26 geared 8.8 rear axle we will likely have to modify the cooling  water tank.  Final decisions are being made on the cam

Well  as you guys may suspect---things are moving is almost frozen molasses -----Waiting on pistons---people not paying attention to what you are trying to give them a heads up about---5 weeks later---Sparky we have a problem------

Makes one want to scream yeah I tried to give you a heads up----but past experiences remind me to bit my tongue knowing my wallet is going to be lighter than it would have to have been---Ie Podunk and my experience with Goodyear and their new LSR "Car Tires"

So I now have a "Spare Set" of Oliver Rods 6.700 2.200 BBC rods---why---because we can get rods faster than Pistons  it not like I will not be able to most likely use them sometime in the future---but---grrrrrrrr

I feel for you brother.
I hope things improve.
You've been around the LSR scene for a long time so I can't give advice.
Someone said "Patience" and I've learned the hard way. cheers cheers cheers
You'll be OK. I have faith.

Mike I am ok---just frustrated that I tried to let them know we were going to be right up against to CU IN class break --and gave into the human condition of wanting to WHINE and sing
 "Woe is Me" ----does nothing more than some times gets it off ones chest--  instead of doing the clean up bore of the block first  and verifying the exact stroke  then repair block and order pistons they ASSUMED--the NEW 427 factory crank I had actually came out to a 3.766 stroke which then came out to a 503 cu in we went with a dyno time only aftermarket 3.75 crank  ---only problem it has SBC crank pins---hence the new rods

You are not alone, Sparky. It is why I have so many "spares" hanging around the garage.

LOL  John---you are so right---most likely we have been down this road before---usually because we screwed up---not the "professionals" especially after we had stressed the displacement break--  again just wallowing in my own self pitty for brief spell!!!!!!!!!!!!!
happens to most of us from time to time--maybe that is why I just can't get enough of this song from time to time!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sparky, those button things don't work. A buddy of mine bought one a couple of years ago. Been pushing the button every day. Still can't get it up.
