    We got lots of offers for help. Thanks guys! What we needed was a chance to cool off and regroup. Have decided the pump is not an issue. Have jetisoned the hood and will take the moon tank off for hiway driving. Got a mechanical gauge and found the electrical gauge to be way, way off.

    Still in. We talkes ourselves out of changing the front main seal. Front main seal talked us back into doing it. We got that done, about halfway to Memphis now. We had to drop the trans and replace the flywheel after the first run.

    What valvetrain? We had issues at Bonneville and I am starting to see a pattern.

    Drag Week= doing different car repairs in strange places for a week. From reading the list it sounds like you aren't the only ones on the broke it lets put it on the stretcher list.
