    What's with the injector cover?

    I tried that at Bonneville and ran a little bit rich.

    Keeps rocks out during the burnout. They take it off before staging. Most stack injected diggers do that now.

    No photos but someone posted a photo of the Gene Adams Small Hemi. Lets go back to 1969 U. S. Nationals at Indy. Jr. fuel 32 car field and my buddy had a 301 small block, Hilborn,s, Howard Cam ( flat tappet, but that was the cam of choice) no tranny, direct drive and 9-10 inch Racemasters and a dual disc clutch, 98 percent and burn the tires as far as you could. 4 cars left and my buddy drew (I think) the Adams car and it got the best of him, but I think his car was the fastest Chevy in the field. They were pushing 180 at the time. Tire smoke and 98 percent nitro. Damn those were the good old days I still remember.

    This is Red Gobel in 66 or 67. This was his first of 2 Jr Fuelers that he raced all over the PNW.
