I'm sure it would've made a huge difference. The next time I go to use the buffer, I'll use it for sure.

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

It has been SOOOOO rainy. It makes road time incredibly difficult to come by. I did get a chance to drive to breakfast on Saturday morning. It sprinkled a few times, but the roads stayed dry. The sky opened up for the rest of the weekend, so I was forced to work in the barn. I put a new fan belt on....

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

This project is one of those things that didn't effect the performance of the car, but just drove me insane. The hood liner, for some reason, was separating on the driver's side. I had tried everything to put it back together ( staples, duct tape, spray adhesive -- three times ) before I finally wav...

Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

I'm pretty certain that weather is a factor. I'm wondering what other people are saying
that they got for power / speed gains from these installs. Have you checked that yet?

Re: Tractor Pull at NC State Fairgrounds

My garden tractor is a model 1200 Cub Cadet. It's a very desirable tractor for guys who
like pulling. I see them all of the time hopped up and for sale. Like BP said, I'm sure
it's a hobby you can get sucked into pretty quickly on all levels. Boys and toys!

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

The weather was pretty good early this morning, so I took the 442 to breakfast. The last time I drove it, I adjusted the distributor's vacuum canister to remove more vacuum while driving. The car hated it and was bucking like crazy while going downhill and light cruising. When I shut the car down to...

Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

It's a tall order to push "Little Jimmy Dickens" to shave off 8.5 tenths, but wouldn't a 13 second run impress the troops? :mrgreen: Hopefully, the exhaust and air intake will get him 3 or 4 tenths. If he's close to 13.90's he'll want to search for the extra speed and will take it in for ...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

The stars finally aligned this weekend and we were able to get the distributor in yesterday. Fred decided to brave the unusually cold May day and help me do the install. I started and ran the car early in the morning. The goal was to have the engine warm and ready to fire, so I could skip the choke ...

Re: Spring Carlisle 2019

Spring Carlisle is always a great time. I wish the weather would've held out. We did walk 10 miles in one day. AkRover and I were able to cover the whole meat in a day. We weren't able to get in the red barn and under the grandstand, and the car show portion was viewed briefly as we took a different...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

I happened upon a dash for a 1966 at Carlisle, which I purchased for resale. The dash is packaged and will be shipped tomorrow to my dash guy. The dash guy had no interest in the ignition switch or the light switch, so I removed them and put them into my spare parts bin. The knob on the light switch...

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

I got the dash project wrapped up this morning. Another three plus hours devoted to stuff nobody can see. I removed the courtesy lights from under the dash. I re-configured my tach wires so I can use the hot point on the fuse block for my distributor upgrade. While doing my clean up under the dash, ...

Re: 2016 Regal Turbo

I decided to run the Michelin's until they are bald. I switched out the snow tires to the streets today. They TPMS tool I bought and used twice failed me. I have my local mechanic getting his reset tool tomorrow and a new one is en route to me this week. I'm starting the search for new tires, hoping...
