Had a great weekend at Riverdale Gasser Mania races. Perfect weather and track conditions.
Sorry I couldn't make it up for the drags this time. Hope to make it up in August for the estranged race.Had a great weekend at Riverdale Gasser Mania races. Perfect weather and track conditions.
I see air under that tire. Waaaaahoooo.
boy that really is too bad. Sounds like broken rings or A broken piston. Hope it’s salvageable. Hope you get it straightened out Mike. And yes I would like to see what happened. Although not the favored pics to see from our hot rod buddies. Rather see the build up on creation. Wishing for the best.Well heck!!!!! I hurt the motor in the 38 at the races last weekend. Started getting blow-by through the valve cover breathers. Checked for any ticking from valves, couldn't hear anything. I ran it a couple more times and called it a day. So I had time today to pull the plugs and do a pressure check. I had 175 to 180 lbs in all of the cylinders but #6. It only had 50 lbs. So ended my racing season pretty darn quick. I will photo the tear down if any of you guys are interested, or just post when I am done. Fun, fun, fun.
Keep us up on what you find Mike!Me too! I did the leak down test yesterday. Definitely something in the cylinder. Got the 64 Polara moved from one stall to another so I could get the 38 onto the hoist. Let the blood letting begin!
