Drove the 4 hours down to MoKan for last night's "fun runs" to get some more laps on the the Dragmaster. Huge thanks to Ryno, WrenchBender, and WZ Junk for their help. Finally resolved an issue with the shifter cable adjustment. Still having trouble throwing blower belts. Going to replace my homemade idler pulley with a store bought one. Then there is the issue of her puking oil on the top end. The past two times out I've had some oil leaking. Thought it was just the valley pan so I sealed it before this outing. The first pass it spit some oil out of the dipstick tube on the top end. We sealed the dipstick tube with some fuel line and a bolt. The next pass dumped significantly more when I hit the brakes, covering my helmet in oil. Looked like I had a hurt cylinder so I called it a night. Got her cleaned up this morning and did a leakdown this afternoon. #8 leakdown was ugly! Pulled the right head and it looks like it ate something. Several small divits in the top of the piston and seems like something imbedded but it should be reuseable. Whew! Cylinder wall doesn't look all that bad. I'll pull the piston after supper and look for broken rings. I've got some spare rings, a spare piston, and a good hone if it were to come to that. Heavy sigh. I saw a deal on facebook that said drag racers love work and hate money. I think that is spot on.
