    As the title says, this year's RWYB @ Reynolds, GA www.silverdollarraceway.com will be held on Sat. Oct. 21, 2017.
    As usual, it will be a fun oriented, laidback, no pressure event of car show, swap meet, and drag races. Camping is free, and prices will be low, as always.
    Track has a new owner, although Ed and Ms Dorothy will still be there on a consulting basis for awhile. When I get more details, I will put them here on this thread, just wanted to get the word out tonight.

  14. We had a full track. Lots of cars up and down the pits. As far as those that chose to park where we set up were close to 35 - 40 I'd say.

    The 55 wore me out. Floors-quarters-trunk-wiring and brakes and being in recovery for almost two years was all I wanted to do. Quick sale and a two year too new Chevelle needing a few days work was here. I take back everything I've ever said about four doors !

  25. I'm having a time getting the Hoodlum road worthy. :rolleyes: I take one step forward and two steps back. Finally got her running without popping back but can't get her to idle less than 2 grand. Guess I need to set the timing and go from there. Also the dang water pump gasket went tango uniform yesterday at the block so I'll add that to the running list of must do's :rolleyes:

    Scot, is it that the carb won't adjust to a lower idle speed or that the engine dies at a lower idle speed? You really need to find true TDC on thatengine and then set timing and adjust curve to get a total advance w/o vacuum of about 34-36* and curve the distributor for about 20* initial and all in by about 2500 rpm.

  27. Yeah Dave if I idle her down below 2 grand she dies. I've got to dedicate more time down there at my shop to put a light on it.

    I had a broken spring on the mechanical advance and haven't put a light on it yet. The springs I replaced were one step slower to open (stiffer) than what my Dad had in it. Maybe that has affected my timing. I've been around small block chebbies all my life and have built 4. But we (Dad & I) have been terrible at carbs, timing and automotive wiring.

  28. I am learning the carb tuning, timing and wiring part though. I believe the timing is too advanced right now and will see Saturday afternoon. The weather is about to be Hoodlum weather and she wants to get into the wind.

    Scot, did you get anything figgered out on your idle problem? If timing is too far advanced idle quality will suffer for sure.
    Sooner or later, and preferably sooner you need to check your timing marks against true TDC to be sure they're correct.

  30. Whelp I have deduced that the distributor has in fact moved over a period of time as the hold down bolt was loose. Also I have found all three of my timing lights have died of old age. But have a good one coming via snail mail. It does true rpms and also has the feature that lets me program the degree of total timing I desire and set it that way.

    But in the mean time I set it by ear and was able to idle it down. So hopefully I'll have it roadworthy by next weekend. Tomorrow I plan on changing the coolant, water pump gaskets and thermostat.

    And yes TDC coincides with the mark on the balancer. I put timing tape on the balancer expecting to use the old timing light.
