Trying to find motivation to keep her going and use her before I run out of time. I moved her to the workshop yesterday and today I put her transmission back in her. Need to change the gas tanks out as she has a 6 gallon tank in her now and I have a nice little 1.5 gallon tank for her. Only good for about 5 minutes of run time.

I updated the picture because she looks totally deferent now. So I guess I should do that more often. This pic is 3/28/19.

Wow, pretty far out if I do say so myself, can't wait to see her in color.

Yesterday I got most of the parts back in Carerror and put her on the scale. She always puts a smile on my face.
LF 320. RF 321
LR 497. RR 478
Total. 1616
Those numbers will help to motivate me.
I know, I know...

Wish I could. Phone is so slow it times out before it can send a pic. Laptop doesn't talk to the phone. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)

69 years old. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to work on the cars.
I did put a tranny in last week by hand. So I'm good to go for now.

Carerror is back up on the stands and I am about to finish the details for start up.
She has about 100 laps on her and I have about 3 A/X's behind the wheel.
One of the hardest things I had to do was getting the tire temperatures within 10°. The 911 guys running the same tire were running 31 psi so that is where I started. She likes to swap ends with that much air.
So at this time I have 15 psi in the rear and 14.5 in the front. The rear has nice scuffing on the edge near the first marker line and that is turning a nice blue.
The front shows no scuffing on the outside edge so I would like to have a little less camber. Running 3/4° now and I really don't want to run less air than 14 psi. Going to take a big rattail file to clearance the strut for less camber to try to get the outer edge to get scuffed.
I take the temps in 3 spots on each tire as the car comes back in. At the last race she only had an 8° difference in all 12 readings I took. I'm thinking that the temps were about 230 maybe that's too high.
Somehow it seems to me that I need about 15 more pounds of weight in the front of the car.
Maybe I should move my seat.

Hey Tony, I am sorry, I kept my notes on blue tape on the fenders. I'll have to keep better track of p/t in a log.

Today finished the shift linkage, clutch linkage, throttle linkage, muffler, starter wiring, battery location hot lead to the starter. Still have the carbs to clean and fuel lines in the engine bay, a bunch of electrical issues, change the tires and maybe next week have start up.

Getting more things hooked up today. Pulled old fuel lines in preparation for new lines. Battery Terminal and wiring, found and installed ignition switch and connected it to the circut board under the dash, installed the steering wheel,
Gotta check the wiring under the dash, make sure it is ready and won't short out when I go to start it. Fuel lines, charge the battery and change the tires. Put some fuel in her.

Sometimes I think my name is Homer. Dur...
Trying to stop push in the car I kept putting weight on the right front of the car. Finally getting the car dailed in I'm still thinking I needed another 15 pounds in the front of the car. When I was building the car I mounted the Sparco on adjustable tracks. Not legal in SCCA but is with the PCA. Next time she's up on the scales I'll put me in the car and move the seat back and forth and post the numbers.

Changed the battery and got the motor to turn over. Hadn't heard that in a year and a half. Tidied up the cables under the car. Now need fuel lines from the fuel regulator to the carbs. Put some fuel in and she should fire right up.

You can drop at least 20-25 pounds from the ass end of the car if you switch to a set of megaphones from that big heavy muffler.....I have a pair I'll let you try...
