32 x 14 slicks, 4.57 gears, P/G w/ 8" converter, 6200-6500 stall.


The stall may need to be tightened up a bit though.


Car with me will be around 3150.

Well I'm hoping to get to the track at least one time this year, but October is a tough month for me.
Seems like we have something going on every weekend, so we'll see.
Not sure how to post video's but I'll make sure I get some.


Thanks guys. No matter what, I beat my goal for getting this motor done and if I don't get down this year, I'll be ready for Spring of 2018....WOOHOO!

Even though Cecil is one of the closest, I've never been there.
I've raced at Maple Grove and South Mountain but I really like Beaver Springs, which is the longest trip...LOL

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Well just as my luck would have it, I double checked my belts and they expired in June...so it looks like I won't get any TNT in this year.
Oh well, at least I'll be ready for 2018.

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Well I got good news and bad news.


First the good news, the motor fired right up and after a few adjustments by Ray, the car sounded real nice. The only issue was when the fuel pressure regulator was adjusted, it stuck open. We got that taken care of and all is good.
No leaks, nothing...it was a very good feeling.


Bad news is, I got video but no way to post it.

Thanks

Re: Good but bad weekend....

Took the car to the track the last weekend.
Was happy but confused.
First off I get there and a car club of over 100 Mopars showed up. Then after unloading the car, I go for fuel. The track owner gives me this look and then tells me he ran out the night before! Not too happy, but it is what it is. He tells me to drive two miles back into town and there is a farm supply store that sells VP in the 5 gallon drums.
So I get there and almost fainted. $90.10 for 5 gallons, when I pay $52.50 at the track.
Anyhow I get back and put fuel into the cell and head to tech. On the way back I noticed the car didn't sound right and told my buddy the car doesn't sound good all of a sudden. We can't find anything so up to the staging lanes we go.
I do a burnout and the motor shuts down, it keeps acting like it's flooding out, so they push me out because it won't fire back up. I get it running and head back to the trailer to check on things. Still can't find anything accept that the rear air bleeds on the carb are all wet.
I go back up and attempt a run. With all going on, I forget to activate my transbrake and my 60 was extremely ugly but ran a 10.344 @ 134.77 mph, shifting at 7200 RPM and crossing the line at the same.
I go pick up my slip and the car dies again. I get back to my trailer and we start looking for things. We pull the site caps off the fuel bowls and the float levels are fine, we look around for anything electrical and my friend thinks that the coil could have been sparking to the rear fuel line, but he's not positive. He was thinking I could have a bad coil?
Anyhow, I go for a second run and while I'm getting ready to pull into the staging area, I run out of fuel! WHAT....we just put in 3 gallons and only made one run! So we put more fuel back in and I make a run, 10.365 @ 129.77 MPH.
On this run I lifted for some reason and I was able to come out at 4000 RPM on the transbrake.
But again, picking up my slip the car dies and won't start. I holed the gas pedal to the floor and it fires up.
The car just seemed to be flooding out on me.
Again the rear air bleeds were all wet and there was signs of fuel on top of the carb flange.
So I came home.
I pulled the carb apart, blew air through it, sprayed it down with brakleen, and didn't see any dirt. The only dirt I did find was in the rear fuel bowl, a small piece that looked like the rubber from the inside of the fuel lines.
Went through 3.5 gallons of fuel for two runs, so something is going on.
But I did manage to have some fun and the motor pulls crazy.
Thanks
