I ran into someone who had that motor last weekend and the same problem so that intake I have in the shed might have to get tossed in the scrap pile,I might look into the heat passage under the carb and see if anything can be done before tossing it. That intake seems to not allow much heat to the carb.

Holt is only an hour or so away.......

I've definitely thought about it. Its probably closer 1.5+ for me, assuming that the parkway isn't backed up.

I'm also not crazy about towing through the tunnel and across the parkway. Its like people forget how to drive when they get there.

After watching all Rodney's videos, I'm definitely going to make it over there one day.

So when is it test time ?

If it happens this year, likely late November.

I start 7-12s in a few weeks, until June. Then the same thing in the fall. So, I'll be working during the good weather.

I need new tires right now. I couldn't bring myself to putting a few passes on a new set and then have them setup in hopes of getting in a few November passes.

I started to go anyways the other day on my worn tires. Then I found out that they are doing track renovations. My other local track has been running a bunch of no prep stuff.

I don't know. I don't typically like summer racing, but I may do it anyway.

Not exactly a update on the car but this seemed like the best place to put it.

From the "Things I enjoy" thread:

Finding stuff that you misplaced or just forgot that you had.

Last year, the shaft bearing on my Aeromotive fuel pump went out and chewed up the seal with it. At one time, I knew that I had a parts pump laying around (from a friend's car that went underwater in a hurricane) but couldn't locate it. I figured that I must have thrown it out.

Anyways, I put a Holley black pump on the car and have since bought a Mallory Comp 250 for future plans. As luck would have it, I stumbled across the old parts pump while digging through some boxes. Even better, it had two regulators laying there with it.

Between the two pumps, I was able to salvage enough parts to build one good one (I think). When I get bored one day, I'll hook it up to check pressure and flow.

One of the regulators is a very old Mallory 2 port, not even the current design. Nobody at the current Mallory/MSD/Holley even knew another design existed. So, I made a thread on the YB to see if anyone knows if the new style kit will work on the old regulator.

The other regulator is a Summit brand two port, made from polymer. I remember that I cracked the housing by over tightening one of the fittings. I replaced it with a Holley 803. I thought that it might use a Holley sized diaphragm but the holes don't line up. So, if anyone has one of these and needs parts, PM me and its yours.

With a few modifications, I was able to retrofit the old Mallory regulator with the new style kit.  With the exception of not being able to adjust above 7# (the new kit has a flat diagram, compared to the original concave design), it worked quite well. While hooked to my flow gauge, it was able to adjust to below 3# and didn't have hardly any creep when the valve was closed.

I tested it with the above mentioned Aeromotive pump, which also seemed to work well. It primed fast, made no abnormal noise, and didn't leak.

Move the pushrod lengths in increments of .050 now and play around. You might find the sweep tightens up before it goes sideways and gets larger
I'll give it a whirl, thanks.

Yeah he is enjoying driving it.

When you move the angle of the valve towards to lifter, pushrod is shorter, when you stand the valve up towards the header, the pushrod gets longer

Old wedge and 8.2 was 6.700
New wedge and 8.2 is 7.100
