Action video 8-[ sounds like a job for my 9 year old....only problem is she rats me out to the old lady for hot rodding #-o we gotta work on that program!

So what's new on this beast?

Been having some oil leak issues....no matter how fancy you build em the still manage to leak ](*,) head drain back fitting and valvecover.....fucking bolt on valvecovers ](*,)
Had to drill and safety wire the Allen bolts because they kept backing off! Damn solid mounts.....so far I have rattled loose one manifold, the linkage off one carb and the v/c's! Gotta love it!

Seems I've tweaked one of my throttle shafts a bit, my 1/2 side carb sync numbers are off a couple points on the snail meter.
Still some fine tuning to do on my jetting, getting that game back in my head.....I haven't forgotten about a little write up I promised on carb tuning (no expert but have learned some tricks that could help others).......soon!

Have an intermittent braking issue....fronts not releasing all the way sometimes....super fun when that happens :^o looking at line lock solenoid as a possible.

I have all of 500 miles on it, still working kinks out I guess, frustrating but it's due to have some problems mashing the huge variety of parts together in a build this deep? Whatever I'm loving driving the car, it's stupid fast, snaps necks wherever it goes and is bound to get me into trouble [-X

Some random pics of shit, some of which has found its way to Instagram already :-& it's just too easy!

Valve covers needed a polish.....

Image

Tighter they are better they seal right? :^o

Was a filthy bitch, quick wash...

Cruisin to the shop with Matt in the 57 scab (that's portangels Washington you can see from my road on a clear day) been having killer weather lately!

Josh.. you may already be using these.. but if not, try using schnorr washers on the manifolds. Same washers as used on VW IRS CV bolts. I use them on exhaust as well. They grip like crazy, especially when they're new.
