I have to agree KSJ has an innate knack of introducing cool people to other cool people!! While he is definitely not in that club, he serves as a kind of Social honey bee.

well, regardless if you borrowed those pics, i'm glad you did billy. i have tried a couple of different ways to attach dog dish caps to different wheels with varying results always using the original "snap on" method of retention. my old, cloudy mind never gave it a thought to use a retention screw method, and i just looked at a cap laying around and concluded a nice flat head or button head 8 or 10-32 stainless screw would work perfect for what needs to be done and not be easily observed. so in the end, all you guys helped my old mind with a good kick start. up and i am very appreciative of all you guys ! thanks again billy for getting this ball rolling and allowing me to obtain the info i was seeking ! bow

Last update, Went back to the track this evening the car went 10.285 @ 134.83 MPH and 10.224 @ 135.35 MPH, still on the conservative side leaving RPM and shifting. Motor seams happy, clean oil and good pressure.

Latest up date, I pulled the motor out of the car it has about4300 miles on it with no problems. Right now it is sitting on a Dyno and we have made 11 pulls, the numbers are not that great but we will keep working on it. the oil pressure is great and it is giving us no sign of problems.

I pulled it last Friday to look it over. It looks Ok, its not great and it not bad, on three of the rod bearing the coating looks like it flaked off on the top of the bearing. The main bearings look good, cam bearing are showing some wear but that's expected with the spring pressures and RPM I am running. Piston skirts looked good nothing to be worried about.

Did you find any power with what you tried on the dyno?

Is it up to your expectations, or will you be looking for more when it goes back together?

Yes I found a little more power on the dyno but not ready to put a hood scoop on the car. I have mixed feeling on my expectations on one hand it ran as good with this new aluminum Ritter block as it did with the R3 block before the come a part. But on the other hand I don't think the motor is running up to its potential. Yes I will be changing things when it goes back together.

Mike,

Have you made a decision on HR Drag Week 2018 yet?

It would be good to see you back.

Thanks for sharing what you learn with us.

Bill
