The No Wake Zone / Neibors and breaking in a new camshaft
« on: September 09, 2008, 10:09:42 AM »
Broke in the cam on Sat. somebody in the trailer park 2 blocks away called about the noise.
Cop was cool about it. Being zoned heavy industrial they were SOL anyway. :D Hope to get out at least 1 or 2 times before snow flys. Try being the key word.

The No Wake Zone / Lake of the Ozarks flying mile!!
« on: September 08, 2008, 09:49:47 AM »
From what I gathered,  Start at about 50mph, run it out the back door for the mph at a mile.
                                Winner was the Bud Light at 178mph.

Those propelers look like big $$  to me!

The No Wake Zone / AA/Pauls Boat Bling
« on: August 25, 2008, 08:36:48 AM »
Finally got some pics. 8)

I had to make the spacers because the Offy intake will only let ya run Carters, or Holley vaccum secondarys in line. These are 650 DP's that run on E-85. So I made the adpter to turn then sideways and incorperated the fuel log into it. I also had to make the Hiem joint holders for the linkage to space them out for fuel line clearance.

The forward/reverse thingie has a piston from a DFX turbo Cosworth . I made 2 of these. One for the boat and 1 for the truck that has a Judd 10 cyl. F1 piston on it.

You can see the "full flow" fitting on the oil return line from the head.

"The  Leper " is looking up.

The No Wake Zone / First time driving a boat ,Funny sh*t
« on: August 24, 2008, 02:37:05 PM »
Jorks brendella thred (with his steering backwards) had me remembering my 1st time out.

Last year I bought the Kona cause it was cheap and I had a wild hair.
I have never been in a boat!!!
After finding the lakemy buddy and I (both drag racers) figure hell no problem. Are sides are hurting after watching for 1/2 hr people try to back up and launch. Check the plug yep. I back up till it floats,
we switch places and I'm in the boat.Fire it back up...ahhh crap there's no #%*6 ing neutral!!! frwd.rev,circle repeat several times. Oh no rudder on the POS either.My bud comes staggering down the hill to the dock in tears laughing his ass off and tells to bring it to the dock. YA right!!! I tell him I'll get close and he can jump on. All this over open headers and other boats lining up for the entertainment!! I make a pass close to the dock an he makes a good Pete rose jump on the bow.
He had liberal sun tan lotion on and almost went off the other side. Now I'm laughing along with the rest of the people who are now cheering us on. We head toward the end of the no wake zone and WTF
waves are coming over the front,sides,front again. I'm thinking we're gonna sink!!My buddy is franticly triing to get his SECOND life jacket on!!! Yell at him what the hell!!??? He then (inbetween cussing my ancestery and anything else he cane think of) Tells me he CANNOT swim!!! I can not breath cause I'm scared and laughing histeriacly!!! Anyway I give it somre peddle and the nose comes up ,Cool!!! cruze aroud and throttle it ,let off the gas ...holy crap we're gonna drown again as a wall of water is tryiing to come over the back side. We servive that and procede to lauch the tool bag, ice chest , xtra life jackets, camara and everything else that was inside the boat while hauling ass around the lake.We are sunburned tired depressed and hungry cause we lost allthe stuff out of the boat. We head home realizing death is sometimes kind to stupid people.
Yep we at the lake the next day!!! LOL   Hope ya'll can enjoy this.  AA/Paul

I'm just looking to make the thing handle better. Stock back end. Should I start with non-movable

The No Wake Zone / Did I get reamed?? Engine Oil Suppliment GM
« on: August 09, 2008, 12:03:13 PM »
I'm getting stuff together for the cam break in on sun or mon. I paid 21.50 for 1 bottle :o
I also picked up some Brad Penn racing oil. Great stuff!!  It's the same oil that used to be Kendall.
Did I mention I hate doingcam break ins on new motors. Ya never know....if you forgot something. I've never had a problem. It just lingers in the back of my mind the 5minutes or so. After that it's just routine.

As I'm workin on the Olds my mind is thinking ....what if it doesn't run like I thought it should.
I'm NOT after top end just the 1st 1/8th mile. This winter the pump'll get done. I've got my old blown alky BBC looking side ways at me for messing with an Olds. Yes it put (uncorrected at 5800ft ) 1058 hp to the tire!! This was a mild tune up. Only 12% over on the blower. This has only .600 lift solid cam.
