The distributor had been tweeked so many time that the tabs were about to break. I also shortened the slots so it will limit on the stops instead of the tabs that were bending. 15 degree baseline, 30 max.
Seems to be running out of fuel if you keep it pinned for a few gears. I tried to drill out the solex inlet valve on the lathe…but can’t get the fuel to shut off now.John JonesModeratorJuly 16, 2021 at 9:08 amPost count: 7992
Franz is on it.. 😎 They were test driving last night and checking shit out… I am so glad to get to drive it a touch before taking it out!!! Both times I took it out it was barely making it program and little to no test driving… 😎 I need to get that fender welded up and back on, Then I will get my bumper et’s on the rear.. 😎 So I have full euro bumpers.. I have the oldest car out there… I should have the oldest bumpers too… Maybe get the skid back on for a test run later maybe?? maybe tomorrow morning??
Franz was trying to make the fuel inlet on this larger… webers have big ol holes in em, solex’s, not so big… tiny… like mouse balls tiny..John JonesModeratorJuly 16, 2021 at 11:11 amPost count: 7992

We did some testing… and it went well!!! Car is a beast… Franz rallied like a MOFO last night, and so did Audrey and Giani.. Thanks girls… I was out of it drunk… 😎
Franz also helped this morning and pulled the rear shocks 2 more times to re-valve them for us.. Also had to straighten out a shock shaft I bent cause I am a dipshit sometimes 😎 Had the shock on the outside of my lower axle tube mount rather than the inside and it got bent… So thanks to Rob for being there and torched that shit and bent it back! 😎 😎 I can’t believe I missed that….
I also blew out another General Grabber… Nope.. done running them.. I need to order tires next week…. 😎 Well, maybe I should try and fit my old yok’s on there first… They never let me down…. never…
We drove it about 80% today…and she fucking ripped… fucking ripped… 😎 After the last shock adjustment I was doubling some of the rhythm sections… 😎FranzModeratorJuly 17, 2021 at 9:17 pmPost count: 4286
That was a great test session. Good work team!👍 Ready to roost in California.
The same section at speed.BBWBParticipantJuly 17, 2021 at 10:57 pmPost count: 1069
That looked fun!
I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
