02-22-2015 08:21 PM holy smokes
this thing got to me
got a new fuel pump and filter hooked up.
Hit it on an on ramp, it shifted down and took off.
40 too 100 in less space than a month ago to 75.
I'm still pumped
Got to thinking I'd better get some new front tires, who knows
how old these are. Thats enough WOT till then.

02-18-2015 02:01 AM finally timed in
timing seems about right
11* initial 36* all in at 1800
am told that might be too early.
put a camera looking at the rear end and suspension.
with helpers front and back of axel and 1 inch torsion bar,
no body roll at all
quite pleased to see the pumpkin roll up to level at WOT also.
It lines up straight as an arrow, was afraid it was pointed to low.
might have fuel starvation right around 3rd gear.

with the new dist and carb, this thing launches fairly hard.
the body rolls around when you get off it.

distributor is in the shop, to find total in.

01-30-2015 02:48 PM first pass
try this again
I got out yesterday, really happy with this thing.
Instant throttle response, not hick-ups, no backfires.
Was looking at this pic the other-day, I believe it's my first pass.
Not too impressive- high 15's I think, but I out ran the guy in the little black car.
He was PO'ed-- how did that old fart with that junker out run me?

01-27-2015 02:39 PM what no popping sound?
Installed 76 secondaries, hit a couple on ramps.
It's a rolling start but no hesitation all the way to 75.
That's about it till the track opens in the spring.
No popping in the pipes at throttle chop.
In a week or so I'll pull that header, weld a bung for an O2 sensor, and re-wrap it.
My little brain hurts form all the carb info that got stuffed in to it.
Might have to have suds with my hockey game tonight.
