Who’s getting ready for Mo-Kan?

Discussion in 'H.A.M.B. Drag Nationals' started by Jermo, Jul 1, 2019.

  1. Title says it-who’s getting ready? What are you wrenching on? We’re getting close enough I figure there’s some lists getting worked through right now. This will be my first year running the 40 down the track (car ran in 2004 H.A.M.B. drags from a previous owner) The transmission went out in March and created a heck of a list to get things in order, some necessary, some not. So, transmission, check. Bump up the stall with a new converter, check. Rochester tri-power rebuilt, check. Neutral safety switch, check. Posi 3rd member for rear ended, check. Then worked out the rear quarter windows-going up and down again sure is nice, and finally body trim put back on. Gotta have some bling... it’s been a long 4 months but finally took it down the street and back late Saturday night. Now I have to get the front sheet metal back on and iron out a few kinks but should be ready. Who’s in???[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Come on down!

    Just a few weeks away now.

    I think I will rebuild the carburetor on the old truck. I just did that 25 years ago. Stuff just does not last like it use to.

    Just fixed the charging issue on my rpu. I looked at the requirements and added a coolant catch can. I've been tweaking the motor and have it running pretty damn good. Just need to add a seat belt and I think I'll be ready.

  8. Thanks, I’m down to seat belt, battery box and timing. Had it out a few times this past weekend and had some fun. Is this a dark colored early 40’s dodge coupe by chance? I’ve seen it around town a few times but haven’t been able to catch it yet. Sweet ride, love how it sounds. It would be nice to meet a neighbor down in Joplin!
