No modifications or upgrades. Just a servicing and cleaning. The biggest thing is to get to the track in 2017.

Good luck to all with their plans.

Installed new cam bearings, I just bought the install tool. I'm sure I will use it again! Assuming the crank comes back spot on I will have .0025 main clearance, but will mic it just to be sure. Made a bracket to hold the front of the transmission up while engine is out. Will roll it out and clean the engine compartment soon. Painted the crank pulley.

Various small projects on the Toy.

First fix the pesky Axle seal leak.

Image

Found the reason for my column shifter problems. The pivot bracket which secured by two bolts has one missing and the other half backed out.

Image


Installing new racing shocks all around. May play around with rocker arm ratios.

The other plugs were so fouled out it wouldn't even idle. It has been idling around for a year.

Do I need to have it stripped and buy you a can of Paint? Also a nice battery with a topper will look very nice.
