Going racing

#1 Post by Hitchcock » Sat Oct 04, 2014 11:24 pm

Well, I was going to get to take the car on is first outing this weekend. Then disaster set in. I was using a piston stop to check to dead center and forgot to back the rocker arms off. The end result was a bent intake valve and a trip to the machine shop. So shooting for next weekend instead...
