Engine and head are done, should be going back into the car very soon. As for pics, all of you will have to wait till the issues of DM magazine hit the stands.[:p]

Any details on what's been done to the motor or is that secret too?

Everything in the block has been replaced except the Pauter rods and the head has been reworked.

Sounds like a lot of work. Did it get a full balancing this time?

mike did i miss why all of this was happening to begin with. i thought your car was running fine. after the accident and fixing of the body work did your motor take a crap. i must have missed something but your car has been down for a long time now.

going a different route?

It stopped running while at LACR and would not restart at all even though it would crank. Turns out the crank trigger wheel bolts backed out causing the wheel to spin freely on the crank. The pistons had slight damage on the tops and the valve springs were slightly bent, this was caused by some valve float since I was still running stock valves and valve springs.




onemoremile - Yes it is.

? I have been in the 11 second club for some time. Car should run 10's if you meant the 10 second club?

Glad to hear the car will be up and running again Mike. Maybe this is an ignorant question but that's alright, DM Magazine? Where can I pick an issue up?

the "spy" shot pix of your car that you post from time to time, look awsome
some one here said 11sec. club i think its more of Road track car right. even f it was a drag car i would think that would be more like a 10 sec car ;))))))
