    Jesse has had an axle seal leaking for a while, we’ve tried re-sealing it a couple times, I thought we should check it for straitness this time.

    The 912 is doing some shake-down in Belgium this week.

    Racing in Morocco later this summer.

    Yeah, let’s hear this story.

    Jesse called yesterday and said his bus needs a tune-up and a transaxle rebuild. So he’s probably not going to make it up to Silverton this weekend.

    My friend Scott Hodges has a 63 Volvo. I think he wants to sell it for $2500. It ran a few years ago, but has sat since then. I was tasked with making it run again…I took the whole fuel system apart as it had some terrible smelling fuel in it. Planning on a fuel tank clean-out, fuel pump, and carburetor rebuilds. My first time messing with SU carburetors. The floats stopped floating…So I’m on hold until we order parts in.

    I spent yesterday detailing and packing this project for transport to Texas. I had to do some clay bar work to get it clean.

    Decklid on, license light wired, checked and fixed all the other lights too. The bumper mounts needed new weld nuts, to be able to install the bumper, so I went ahead and did that. Adjusted valves, and tuned the engine. I had to clean the spark plugs and drop the idle jet to a 55. The 1776cc run great. It’s fast!

    The brakes seemed to be dragging when I got back from the test drive. Have to look at that before you try to drive it home…and the speedometer cable is on the list of parts to order.

    What the hell is going on here?

    Why does bankshot need seafoam?

    Pretty sure that you can only get riverfoam in Durango.

    It takes about 6 weeks to get an exhaust system. What is your preference? A1 sidewinder is the best for power and sound, but the stainless Vintage speed are a little more quiet and easier to adjust valves on. They are about the same price either way.

    Your welcome Jesse. We’ll tie up the loose ends when there is a chance…hopefully later this week.

    Unless you want to spend another weekend on it?
