    Spent yesterday after church at an old track that many an early fx/funny car went down. Was good to get out. Got see to the track operator that started it all for me as a kid. His health had taken a very serious hit. God restored him. None other than Mike Franks. Yes his father was Mr Carlton Franks. Fulton/Blue Mountain/and Byhalia drag strips to name a few.

    Rotating assembly for Prefect is together. Got a head bolt hole that I don’t like the way the threads look.Gonna put in a heli coil and then seal and run studs. I can tape everything off and go from there. Better now than later. I used a thread chaser on everything before the crank etc sent in. Light hit it the right way and the bottom three threads look ok but the top 4 or 5 nit so good. Gonna fix it now.

    Gotta pull the short block back down for the Prefect. . Everything checks out perfect but due to luck I had a head bolt hole in the block that pulled the threads. Gotta heli coil it. Then studs. I’ll pull it back down and clean up after the fix. No point in taking a chance.

    Installed heli coil. It went in very well. Used a home made drill and tap guide. Framing square says the stud I screwed in is dead perpendicular as it should be. I pulled everything down to clean and wash. I am taking the rods back to check the small end. Need to be rehoned. They are tighter than I like. I have a second set from
    Inventory just in case these don’t do as I want. I also want to narrow the big ends a little.
