Ok, this is what I have, after a few hours I have this under the motor.



Over night I have this or more.



The fluid is so thin and "wicks" to stuff it's giving me fits as to where it is coming from. I thought I would wrap the hose fittings with paper towel strips and see if I can narrow it down.



I think some is inside the motor from the armature seal leaking before. I replaced that seal so it should be ok but maybe it isn't? All I can do if the lines aren't leaking is to run it over and over and check over and over and see if it goes away. I am thinking the inside of the motor could have it all over and even thought armature seal isn't leaking the fluid into there anymore it would hang around for quite a while coming out a little at a time.

All I know is I have thought over and over how this never leaked before and I am so glad it didn't, it was full of brake fluid before!

I didn't work on anything yesterday but watching the leak on my top motor, and ended up ZERO, it's driving me crazy.

So I went and got in my time machine and went back to 1977 and had my dad shoot a video of me working on my truck! Check it out, it was nice going back home for the day.

That was kind of like watching a scene from "Poltergeist"
Were you styling with "Flares"? And I'm not even going to ask if those were "Disco" boots. Nope, not gonna ask.

Lines look red? Is that trans fluid or hydrolick fluid?

Brian: Don't use trans fluid in a hydrolic system Its designed as a trans fluid and trans coolant it can attack your hydrolic system and has a different viscosity and adatives It will swell hydrolic seals and in time cause failure

LOL, looking at the video again, I can tell the exact time, the last week in Sept 1977! I painted it Aug 1 1977 and those are the very pants I am wearing standing next to the truck unmasked before the chrome was put back on that very day! I am prepping it for paint in that film. LOL, great times, I drove into Andy's Picnic the next weekend on the 7th for my first rod run. Andy is Andy Brizio of Andy's Instant T fame. Click here

I rolled in there all proud and the guy at the gate said "That's newer than 48 you aren't allowed in". I took off mad as hell and walked in looking for Andy. Never met him before that that is who I went looking for. I took my pink with me and I didn't even have to show him he said "Follow me" and walked me back to the gate and told the guy "Let him in" and he gave one of those "Your the boss" kinda looks and I went and got my truck and drove in. It was the coolest thing in my life at the time to go rolling in with all those hot rods.

Aren't you glad you don't have all that hair to deal with now?

Worked on one of the sprint cars today after a weekend at Lucus Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo. for the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial race. Saturday night proved good and bad. My son finished #11 in the A main of the W.A.R series but during the heat races, someone (not naming names) run into the back of him down the front stretch and damaged the bumper and tail tank beyond repair. Had to duct tape the tank up to run the main. New tail tank & bladder, ($1400.00) . Got a new one ordered and will be ready for this Saturday race at Valley Speedway in Grain Valley, Mo. The seasons about over, hopefully can save some $$$$ over the winter for some upgrades.
