    Hot damn Sam! Carrying the front end a ways. Keep practicing and you'll carry it to the 60' mark.

    Did I miss it somehow no thread on the HAMB from Rocky for Eagle field this year?

    But the old girl looked good keeping the front wheels down so they are just skimming along.

    last time I was at eagle field , it was a single lane . great pix &racing !
     
  11. Yeah Carl - time to switch to a 2 port Hilborn and Alky . . . then . . . maybe just 10% pop in it! Give yourself a wild ride and probably scatter some parts for the fun of it.

    PS: Bring a wheelbarrow if you start running pop in it - makes it easier to gather up all your 'good parts' after you scatter the engine! LOL

    Seriously, glad you're having fun - wish I was out your way - we'd do some racing together. Take care my friend!

  16. This is really neat. Years ago, I made an adapter to use a 1/4 shaft die grinder, but your idea is just what I was looking for. Consider it copied.

  17. I am with you all the way on your signature. I have had stem cell (marrow) cancer for 28 years without a day in remission. It is controlled with an expensive drug, but it's doing the job. Hang in there!
     
  18. I have read 26 pages at one go, and I am so impressed! I am bummed that forgetting gear lube caused you to toast the rear end.
    Fantastic work.
     
  19. Carl,
    I read the whole story from beginning to end. It took two days, but it was worth every second.
    I am 74, and really appreciate that you didn't edit out the grunts and groans every time you stepped into or out of your digger. I did, however, cringe every time I saw a new nick on your fingers. You know they are not renewable, right?
    You are one fantastic innovator, designer, moulder, machinist, tool pusher, and driver, and it was a real hoot following the story of you and your buddies. Your story is an inspiration.
    I gave up playing with flatties in the 50s because it was easier to find power by bolting in a OHV.
    Keep it up, you are the best in your price range. :)

  20. Thanx for the kind words Bob and I'm glad you enjoyed it. They say if you live long enough everything comes back into style, guess I've lived long enough to see flatheads come back into style.........even though its tough to see the prices they are getting for stuff these days but I guess that's the price of progress. Have always loved playing with stuff that is tough to get HP out of......... besides I really get a kick out of seeing the younger generation keeping Henry smiling......

  21. Thanks for the kind reply. I might add that I was also successful in turning my son into a gearhead. He is working on an International KB1. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your postings.

    Since you were on a single run , if the timing equipment was working correct , you did good . Did you run more than once ? Another run would confirm . Nice digger .

  28. Reaction time was way to slow but for being 72 guess that's all ya can hope for. is to even see the light........let alone remember which one to take off on.........
