Re: A Statement from Jim Tananbaum

Sounds to me like you are seeking some sort of affirmation. On several occasions you mentioned what good "character" you have by your intentions of giving away tickets. I am always amused by people boasting about stuff they're *going* to do...... Kinda like when guys tell me they are building a blow...

With all recent shit talking about Larry & Co, JT, and all the rest, how about recalling all the positive things about this years burn (or any other year)?

Re: A Statement from Jim Tananbaum

And why do we care about any of this? My burn wasn't negatively affected in any way by any camp, plug and play or otherwise. The org runs their business their way. I run my business my way.

Re: The Car Thread

Yea, the center is a 2CG, the outboards are 2G. Rochester made a ton of different 2 barrels, with different part numbers, so it can be pretty confusing. You can run standard 2G carbs as outboards, but it's best to deactivate the idle circuits. It's the linkage that's a bitch to set up correctly. Im ...

Re: Hauling water from Default home to BRC vs Filling in Ren

Depdnds on the vehicle. A diesel 3500 truck? Won't make too big a difference. A rental car, anan older car, a smaller car? It will make a big difference. Water is 8 pounds per gallon. If you live in Reno, then fill up at home. From anywhere else, it doesn't make sense. Plus there is a safety issue. ...

I picked up a tri power for my sb. I need to rebuild the carbs, and buy/devise/fabricate a linkage. It wasn't until too long ago that I found out all three carbs don't open simultaneously. The outboard carbs don't open until the center is around 40%. Makes sense if you think about it. The only heade...

Finally! I was contemplating coming up there and kidnapping you, holding you at wrenchpoint, and forcing you to work on that car! As far as starters go, I'm sold on the mini high torque starters. Put one in the 58 and it spins that motor pretty fast. Plus, being smaller in size, it doesn't get cooke...

Re: The Car Thread

I loved those big Mercedes. A friends dad had one; it was always in the shop. The hydro-pneumatic suspension was not the most reliable system, though arguably pretty cool from an engineering standpoint. While it was pretty quick for a big car, it only made about 250 horsepower. Not a lot from nearly...

Re: The Car Thread

Cummins 5.9's are great motors. Most can go 300-600k, depending on maintenance. If you drop an injector, you'll likely take out a piston, but otherwise not much can go wrong. I've got 310k on my 97, and other than two starters, two alternators, and three serpentine belts, it's had nothing go wrong. ...

Captain is spot on. I always rebuild my own stuff, if I know it's OEM, or a quality reman. The cheapo auto parts alternators sometimes aren't even clocked correctly. And I've had some that were bad right out of the box. Especially if it's for a vintage GM. Most alternators, generators, starters, and...
