Default Re: Dumbo The Flying Elephant

I got a few wires uncrossed and stuff started to work. Loading up today for testing tomorrow. I hope the changes will improve the car.

The down side of a new metric / standard car is the addition of the extra tools in the trailer. Don't forget the VO Meter, test light, soldering gun and rosin core solder, connectors, and picks. And the most important tool, the wiring diagram.

I think I'm ready

Since everything was falling into place and I was ahead of my timeline, checking the valve lash was a great idea. Working on the Hemi on the dyno is fun, in the car, as Dan would say, not so much. I only had to adjust two valves .001- .002 loose. It only took a quick 180 minutes plus, a half of a box of bandaids and every tool in the box and then some.

So now I'm up early tring to makeup for lost time. Back to work!

Thanks Keith

I can definitely identify with the bandaids, young whippersnappers have no idea how thin your skin gets as you “mature”. I can hardly put gas in the car without bruising and/or bleeding. Swapping converters requires a transfusion....well, maybe not that bad but I definitely take a box of bandaids to the track and there’s a big box in the garage. Look forward to seeing the car soon, hope the testing goes well.

Jim after being in business for years I'm pretty thick skinned, but old scar tissue is no match for razor sharp edges of plastic and steel. Testing this past weekend didn't go well.

Today is new and Dumbo is being fitted for new pipes, life is good.

Atlanta or Tulsa will depend on the weather. It will be a little farther to Tulsa from Ohio than Commerce Ga.

Yes but in Tulsa you don't have to drive through Atlanta!
