  • April 21 2018, 02:45:31 PM Forzfed: Shout out to the JETS!  Way to make the 2nd round, if there was a doubt. :rock: :cheers:
  • April 21 2018, 05:01:53 PM Scoobum: Engine is out...exhaust housing face is rotted to hell from the race gas...glad I got a new one. Doubt the puck was sealing worth a shit.
  • April 21 2018, 05:03:17 PM Scoobum: Stripping the engine to the short block tomorrow and removing the alky kit.

  • April 21 2018, 06:00:36 PM Forzfed: Dave, I was happy they won the one game at home.  Hope, they can pull off a few more wins!
  • April 22 2018, 03:42:33 AM Scoobum: The heart attack kids are on their way back to Toronto! Do you beLeaf?!
  • April 22 2018, 07:46:50 AM Scoobum: Happy Birthday to our Boss!!!
  • April 22 2018, 07:53:17 AM Scoobum: Arguably the best blues band ever...and guitarist. Here they are...Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Troble with Reese Wynans on keyboards from their final appearance on Austin City Limits doin' Look at Little Sister. Watch fro the best guitar save of all time!...[link]
  • April 22 2018, 09:43:54 AM Scoobum: I have my 80 LB TT alcohol chip here that I have no use for. Burned for my 6262 for 23-24 PSI...you can add high gear fuel if desired to up the boost. 60 bucks shipped to your door. PM if interested.
  • April 22 2018, 03:57:40 PM Scoobum: No racing this year. Pistons are sloppy in the cylinders. Was fairly certain as towards the end of last year the dipstick was rising up after each run. Rings were going after 4 years of racing every weekend. I have a standard bore block sitting here with  a set of .030 over pistons and a std/std crank. I'll take a run to Joes att he end of the season and get him to overbore and build the short block. Dan and I are gonna button this engine back up and drop it in and I'll cruise the car this summer.
  • April 22 2018, 04:30:23 PM Scoobum: Steve, I inspected the lifters one by one...and they're still mint...with the 130 lb valve springs. With proper break in procedure and high quality lifters...thes e are GM NOS, I think you can still run a flat tappet cam if you're on a budget.
  • April 23 2018, 09:01:00 AM Steve Wood: I have never changed my mind on that.  The TA lifters appear to be built by Johnson and are similar to the GM lifters with hardened bases.  Most of the failures have been due to improper break in and chinese soft bottomed lifters  when Johnson was shut down for awhile.
  • April 23 2018, 12:12:37 PM nocooler: That sucks Brad.
  • April 23 2018, 03:14:19 PM Forzfed: The snow is pretty well gone here, just small patches.  Looking forward to picking up my 4.1 and putting some miles on it this year!
  • April 23 2018, 03:14:47 PM Forzfed: I feel for you Brad, you gotta get your speed on!
  • April 23 2018, 04:48:17 PM Scoobum: It ain't over yet...stay tuned.
  • April 23 2018, 10:16:21 PM Forzfed: Good Hockey game!  Glad the Leafs won, hope they can beat them in Boston!
