    How's Winter Going?

    Post by Ron Clevenger on November 23rd 2009, 12:11 pm

    I finally got the new blower ordered. Will have to make a new blower tube that connects the blower and intake. Motor is OK and ready to go. But I did have a minor oil leak in the rear of pan. Will fix that also.

    Steve/Ski, you guys got Butchs car back yet?

    Steve Scott, how we looking for next season?

    Pete, now that you got some rear tires that hook , how's next season looking?

    OK Simon, everyone will be after you next year. No way can we let you win back to back championships Very Happy .

    Blessings..............Ron C.

    Hi Guys, Yes we got the car back ( Dennis ) does great work. The engine and trans are in, just have to lengthen all the pluming and wireing. I guess we'll still be running the chevy motor, but Butch is looking for a Brad motor. Rolling Eyes

    I'm so eager to go testing or racing that Curtis gave me some Honda engines that they used up on the job. Been rebuilding them and one 9hp put on my rototiller. Of course I had to tweak the thing a little when rebuilding. Man, that thing really barks now on my rototiller. Thinking about entering it in the Sand Drags bounce .

    The other is actually a 5Kw 11hp Honda generator. Rebuilding it and clean and painting. Going to put it in my MH to replace the old Kohler. The Kohler's been a good unit but it sure does rock and roll the MH. A little noisy too. I do get a mild complaint from the other Clevenger family neighbor Rolling Eyes at the races when I fire it up early AM to make some coffee. But...hey!!! we're at the races and it's race day:P Razz.

    Woops, wife caught me, more kitchen duty stuff. Looking forward to eating all that good stuff....especially pumpkin pie at the end
    Wink ................Blessings............be safe........Ron.

    Pete, thanks for picking up my blower starter from Ricky. I'm hopefully we'll get some racing in this year. Hurt the Chevy motor for the second time at the MM testing. Made the decision to go hemi, so I cut a deal with System 1 to buy one of their Top Fuel motors. It is the car and we lack a 44 mag, clutch and a few small odds and ends. If we can make it up to race we'll drop the F/C on it. Found out one of your TEW regulars works where I do.

    I like the kid already Very Happy Pretty sure he'll get time off to race if he needs it. Ron I'm trying but it was a big change. I think the only thing I kept was the air in the tires. One thing is for sure, they don't make any parts better or stonger than what I have from the manifold to pan.
