Too bad Let's Play only comes out twice per year. There is a good chance both will be featured in the same spread. Vol 50 just came out yesterday. I'm stoked to see it! :-$

Yeah I can respect that. No worries! Maybe keep us posted when the magazine spreads publish??!! :-# :-# Smile Smile


On Johns first trip I was a write off! Stressing so fucking hard trying to scramble to get the car ready for the airmighty shoot and big reveal at gcvws15!

Get up for a visit and I'll take ya for a joy ride.....she's insured till October.

Course I'll keep posted on the new spread in lets play! Fingers crossed they run both my car and Russ's cherry in the same issue! =D>


Wowzers JB - would be dreamy to so much as see the car -- freakin out of this world to ride in it. Mass props and respect to you and this machine. I know what it takes to build one. I took six years to build my 57. But it is not to the level of your car :-& if I make it to Victoria I will hit you up. Do the same if you make it to Puyallup. Smile

Bad news, the 55 is down HARD ](*,) ](*,) bout a month ago I was coming home from a show and broke an adjuster on my berg rockers and of course bent the pushrod :-# no big deal....could have been worse I figured. Well after dragging ass on ordering parts to replace I finally got into it last few nights. I thought I better do my due diligence and double check my rocker geometry and make sure I didn't miss something before cutting new rods same length as old ones. #1 was easiest to reach with the dial indicator while motor was in the car (bumper mounts in the way) .588" of lift at the valve :-& :-& :-$ \:D/ yup still same as when I built it. Adjusters were between 1-2 turns out from bottomed, hanging out a bit far (threads are the weak point) ideally should be 1/2...3/4 turn max. There a lot riding on shit pushing against these super stiff LS1 springs!!
No big deal, I take the one stand shim out, re check angles at half and full lift, look decent still and adjusters are all around 1/2 turn.
I throw some pushrods back into 3/4 head and bolt up rockers with a new adjuster. Start to turn it over and WTF? #4 intake ain't moving #-o #-o #-o yank the shaft and PR to find the lifter all cock eyed in the bore :-({|= :-({|= seems I broke the case ](*,) ](*,) mother fucker! So much for this years show circuit (our local show is next weekend)

That sucks big time, I know you'll get it fixed and it'll end up better than it was.
