  3. This was a way last minute deal - no more flat tappet cams - ever - the pushrods wouldn't even come out of the rocker arms to allow some leverage tool to compress the spring. It wasn't too bad really after we got the heads back on. 2 hours maybe. It was almost worth it when people walked up and the thing was topless and the race is about ready to start. :rolleyes:

    Caleb Sewell posted 200 pictures on Facebook. I'll try to slap some up here for the non Facebook folks.

  8. You guys don't miss a thing. It wasn't running for shit. 9 seconds in the 1/8 and she wasn't scared of that thing at all! Its a sweet engine- but its a blower engine - it sounded real tame and she walked right up to it.

    Hey Tony, I don't recall the guys name but he had that killer green 55 Chevy at Bakersfield when I saw you, he seems to have been absent this year or have I been sleep'n.

    If you didn't like this gasser show then you just don't like gassers. It was way better than anything NHRA puts out today.
     
  15. That's Porter - he didn't want to change the heads on his car for the 2017 rules. He still runs that car local. Think I saw a timeslip that showed a 5.70 time on it. Fast car for sure.

    That wasn't all of them! There were 500 and my index finger got tired.

  21. Think it may have gotten old for him. He hated the heat. That car is for sale right now if you want an A/G winning turn key car.

    I didn't mean to take winning that award lightly. Really honored to get that! With a 10 day 392 Hemi build and pulling the heads at 7am the morning of the race, I was just flat out worn out. Not sure what I said :eek: probably didn't say thanks :(
