Hoping To Get It Back On The Road Soon

Posted on: Sunday August 19, 2012

It's been off the road for a few months. Started missing at idle on #2 and after going through compression test (175,173,175,175), carbs, changing everything out on ignition, checking lift at each valve, I finally gave in and pulled the head. Machine shop found a rather long crack going across the top and down the side, but nothing in any combustion chambers (still not 100% satisfied that was the problem) I decided to use a small chamber head to get a bit more compression and after sending every...

Finally Showing My Own Car A Little Love

Posted on: Sunday February 21, 2010

Taking care of several little things on the car, the might as wells, and things I've been thinking of doing led me to pull the engine. I sent the head out to get a skim, and the flywheel to get a little more weight taken off.

Swaybar

I got the new 1" front bar on, along with the 5/8" rear, doesn't feel as good on street tires, but never got a chance to go autocrossing and try it out on racing rubber.

Swaybar

Got some idea's for other improvements to make it a little faster for autocrossing, but I'll have to see if I can find the time to do them, as they each require my time for fabrication, instead of money. I could buy the parts, but I'm limmeted on budget.
