Would be great to see you and Patsy at the Baby Gators if you can make it; it was an awesome event last year.

Maybe the Atlanta pts meet. The engine is at a stopping point, it holds water and we, Cooter has a tune in it. We have yet to get A to B, trans ratios (Joel has helped), converter flash, shift points, starting RPM, and shock settings, just to name a few.

Condensation in the valve covers seems like a lot to me, but zero water in the pan. The engine makes good power a little north 7000 RPM. After racing a 440 all these years that seems like a lot of RPM's. It sure sounds good on the dyno.

My job at the dyno was easy all I had to do was stay out of the way. Sid operated, Cooter did the tuning, and Shawn did most everything else except supervise. Supervision was left to the master, Mr. Jeff.

Two days of fun at the dyno, I just love it!

I will be fine tuning my push-rod instillation tool today. Failure was caused by push-rods being to large, rods are much bigger. I have to figure something out on the exhaust side, its real busy up top. You cant see anything without a scope.

What a day, nothing worked that would repeat with the exception of gravity. The bright spot is; its a solid roller so I will not have to pull the head to install a solid lifter for checking valve lift.

I'll try something different today.
