    Here is Ruby’s Engine Specs – it’s a 1641 with a counter weighted crank shaft, Engle 100 cam,  solid shaft rockers, high rev valve springs, compression is about 8.5 🤙🏻😎

    we worked on it yesterday morning and this morning!!! We did our two break-ins on the stand and all sounded GREAT!! We changed the clutch cable -it seemed sloppy and sure enough there was a fray in there 👍🏻  Tomorrow morning we’ll get it off the stand and plug her in 😎😎 it’s so clean and sounds so good!!!
