    Nice! that probably has the old carbon type t/o bearing. Its not a bearing at all. So they make some noise.

    Thanks for that Franz. After I read your reply I remembered reading that. I let it idle and run for bout 30-45 minutes .  The t/o seemed to quite down after it got warm. I’m sure I will learn some more new noises as I continue. It ran better after it spit burnt acorns out the exhaust like machine gun fire. I tried to get them all out. Any best way you know to do it?

    Thanks and all you folks have a safe productive day!

    You might want to check the top of the cooling tins if you had mice in the engine compartment. They love that spot.

    Yep, cleaned that up! Squirrels  had packed pecans and acorns all around the plugs. PIA to get them out before pulling the plugs. I knew they had been there. When I pulled it from the barn I had two full squirrel skeletons under the rear seat. Don’t know how they got in but they didn’t get out.

    I just read that Furniture Row Racing  is closing shop. Isn’t that the company Dirty Shop Pat worked for?

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    I read that the owner is shutting down due to no sponsors. Five Hour Energy pulled out. He doesn’t want to barrow tons of money to keep things afloat.

    Barney built FRR over a 14 year period. He paid for it out of his pocket for the love of the sport for 12 years.

    5hour is leaving because their contract was up with FRR and when Monster energy became the title sponsor a couple years ago part of their deal was no other energy drink sponsor would be allowed into the sport as long as they are the title sponsor. So when that contract expired with with FRR 5hour is out.

    To be the primary sponsor on a top tier car for 1 race weekend is about 2.5 mil. for the season it’s about 32mil.

    NASCAR has been having a hard time filling seats for a few years now. Sponsors know this. It’s tough to find people with that kind of money to play.

    I was shocked to find out it has gone this way. Would seam like sponsors would be at your door after winning, DOMINATING!!!,  a championship last years and finishing top 5 for several seasons.

    Bummed for Matt and all the guys over there. Wish them all the best and hope that all stay in motorsports or cars in someway.

    Its a lot of effort for sure. Being based in Denver only makes it harder for those guys.

    I have race car dreams if Matt the intern has any interest in KCW again.

    I went to the pool with the family and drank PBR talls. Still waiting on a decklid and hinges to get this singlecab out of here.

    Oh yeah, and I worked on my solid business plan.
