Woah That'* the first time I've seen that blue coated blower.

I love that color.............but any coating is bad for heat dissapation.

On a positive note, go Bill go. Tear into that engine and mod the hell out of it.
Do everything you ever wanted to do.

You'll kick yourself if you skip doing something that only costs a little more.

Here'* where we are at now. Pete the Fake Canadian showed up and got me moving again.





Coolant passages were starting to cave in..not bad..but starting in 2 years. Dex was removed. I'm starting to think it'* mostly the composite gaskets.

The progress looks awsome so far! Olds is wondering when we can come up there for us to put a cam in his Riv!

Dude... good work! I doubt you'll need any help with the project, but if you have any questions that I might be able to answer make sure to give me a holler. Man, I wish I could be up there to help you out! This will be a lot of fun.
