    Yes, I realize anyone that was racing threw this vacuum stuff in the garbage back then but I enjoy being frustrated by this quirky setup. It is working really well now so I can't wait to see what kind of times it will run. It is all you can do to shift it now with 3 carbs instead of 1. I was barely getting into 4th gear at the Meltdown with a 4:11. I knew something wasn't right and should have figured it out at the track but we were too busy replacing axles.

    Ugh....actually not a showdown at all. I own the green Falcon, and had trouble with my clutch slipping all weekend. It was a brand new one too! Come to find out, it was defective and not even the one i was supposed to get! All new in there now so hopefully a lot better showing next year

    Don't feel bad, I had a good run but blew the outer o-ring on the trans pump at the end of the track. Replaced the pump with a new TCI and now reverse slips. Damn this hobby is fun!!?

    Clutch Magic = Coca Cola

    Mid 60s, I remember a story about stock car racer Wild Bill Fitzerald with his clutch slipping at 141 speedway.

    So they shook up a bottle of Coke ( the old good stuff ) and squirted it into pressure plate and lasted the night.

    It was a white car and the next week he had ( things go better with Coke ) painted on it.
