...maximum RPMs...POD Filters on the Carbs...not climbing all the way up the Clutch

I'm a chronic optimist, so I'm thinking you're gonna be WAY out in front on the trails, which will give you PLENTY of time to: "Put ya tow rope in the air!"..."And wave it like ya just don' care!"

:good:

With the final loading of the Trailer coming, I just wanted to give an update on some of the small updates for the RR:

-Bigger HeadLights

-Billet Bar Clamps

-Stainless Extended Brake Line.

-Taller Riser

-Extender for the Throttle Cable

-RAVE Popups to help Tune the RPM for opening.

-Aluminum to Re-Inforce the Chassis (It already had a slight wave forming)

-More to come

Ahhh.... I just have to ask. What's with the Smuckers? Are you snacking in the garage? My guess would be that you using it as a tool?

From back on page 2:

"My nephew (Mini-GutZ) was told old people eat Marmalade so I he got me some....."

LOL

So it ended up in the background of the first few pics and I just carried it forward.

I do not like marmalade!

Update:

Well last year was disappointing, the sled would not rev (I believe it was the Voltage Regulator ), The NOS would pull hard to Mid-Range and done, a bit of Knock too.

It started  leaking oil out of the waterpump weep hole, I thought.

Spark Plug tore out of the head, needing a new head to be chambered, flattened and milled.

The engine cases\cylinders threads on several holes are starting to strip. (94 Mach 1 Motor, 25 years old +/-)

So... the VR was upgraded to a Mosfet design, I hope that will solve the Revs.

The leak turned out to be the seal for the cases, I think the NOS and Knock caused the lower case seal to blow out, also upgraded to better pistons and cleaned and re-tapped holes.

Once the engine was in the chassis and started it was pouring coolant out of a head bolt, it tore the threads and there was not enough depth to increase the threads. I was going to helicoil it, but instead went with using a 10mm bolt since it was the same bore as the heliCoil.

We are back in business!!

So far.....

Tidey up some electical stuff and maybe a little testing at the farm.

Untill the next "Earth Shattering Kaboom".....
