Re: Good but bad weekend....
Wow, I just realized it's been over a year since I updated things.
Well to simply say, there is nothing to update. I haven't been in the car since I ran it last in 2017.
Had serious knee pain and in Feb 2018 had two torn meniscus repaired and that didn't help one bit, in fact, made things worse.
Then in August of 2018, I had a total knee replacement and to this day, still hurts.
I ordered a quick release steering wheel hub to help get in and out of the car and my wife got me a new steering wheel for Christmas.
We do believe my miss was due to a bad coil. The fuel line ran extremely close to the coil and we think it jumped spark and damaged it. I put a new coil on and fired it up and it sounded like normal again, but ran out of fuel before I could really check things. I adjusted the fuel pressure down to around 5 psi. I also made a few changes to the carb, new jet size and remove a pair of air bleeds. It was also recommended that I lock out my distributor again, which I did.
My friend went over all the valves and everything is ready for this year.
Hopefully this time, no issues will come up and I can get some solid runs in and break into the nine's, so that I can at least say the car runs nine's even though I'll run in a 10.0 class.
That's it for now.
