Yep, Tranny out and in. New flywheel installed, vibration problem solved, I had the wrong flywheel (supplied by and expert,,again,,gotta watch those experts!).

New flywheel,,,came with 28 ounces taken off the opposing side of where a stock flywheel adds 28 ounces. Learned a lot about a good forged steel flywheel and the differences in price/quality. Stuff like "tight grain" and the "flow of the grain" in the steel, GEEZ to much detail for my interest in that area. All I know is that from the previous post you can see and imagine that,,, I now have my ADREN-GRIN on!! I love Adrenaline!!

ADREN-GRIN,, I have been saying that a lot lately!!

Tom I got the video link. I made some popcorn and got a drink and tuned my tv to YouTube cause I can do that on the smart tv and
put my feet up on the electric recline on the new couch we bought so I was really comfy. I got the remote to push play on the video and reached over for the popcorn and the video ended. I really appreciate what you did but brother but you left me hanging and wanting more. Lol
loved it anyway.

A guy named "Vinny" told me to watch a "link".

He scribbled a website on a piece of paper in a hurry and said, "keep an eye on this, your Gasser is going to be featured",,,I gotta go"........

That was at the Del Mar Good Guys car show I attended last month.

I said, "OK"........................ "leaving he said I am outta cards,,,, I am a magazine editor, watch that link".............

"OK"

Got a "teaser" article in my e-mail today, it was a article and page copied from the current #147 Gasser Magazine.

This (attached page) was a page where they covered the Good Guys Car show I recently attended at the Del Mar Fair here in southern Cal.

I am always a little surprised how much of a crowd please-er my car seems to be,, This Gasser thing is really growing in popularity!

Ron Updike told me he is currently writing up some sort of a future article on my 56 VIC for the Gasser Magazine.
