    Was thinking about that engine BO. Do you want to sell it? I’ll call you later.

    Going to go with a 1915.

     

    How much do you want for that engine you have Bo? I just talked to the painters guy it may be a bit cheaper for me to build an engine out of what I have. He needs to check it out first.

    No worries. I’ve got 400 in the case plus all the Painters work. If you need it it’s there.

    My buddy from Denver bailed on bringing it down because of weather.

    Are you going to be able to do the Ottinger Moab trip next month? 26th-28th. We can probably have your engine back in time.

    Yeah I’d like to plan on it. I have a work thing that Saturday but I think it’s going to change. The other problem is I have a baby, puppy and wife. Painters guy said he could have the engine back around 2 weeks. Let’s try and get it done. Can you get rebuild kits for those dells? I know they are fine but maybe its worth rebuilding them now? I remember another thread saying you can’t get the kits anymore?

    Still planning on coming to GJ this weekend! So sick of being on the ranch. SOOOO much snow and mud. I’m over it!

    Do you guys use an ultrasonic cleaner on the body and jets when doing a rebuild?  If so, what chemical do you use?  I have a few sets OG Dell 36s and various other carbs that need a really good cleaning.

    Usually just caustic carb dip.

    If you have that white mineral build-up you can use CRL in a dunk tank…but not for very long, it will eat the aluminum.

    If possible, what is the height of this bus at the driprail?  Just curious, as we would have essentially the same set up if I did decide to go back up?  thanks
