Re: Holiday hibernation

If you have trouble with the pressure bleed. I use a vacuum hand pump with a remote fluid catch jar that I use. Same idea just sucks at the bleeder instead of blowing at the MC.

Re: Cheap GoPro

Harry's has a provision for external camera. The camera has wi-if bit the app that was recommended is not for iPhone. The manufacture suggested another one but I haven't messed with it yet.

I could say Velcro on the hat..lol
However I did sew in an extra strip of elastic.

Cheap GoPro

Thanks to Stefan I got the Odrvm made in China GoPro knockoff. Really good value at $50. This one didn't have the remote start switch but it does have motion detection. The feature works well. I should be able to be in the staging area and it doesn't record until the car starts moving. Here is a lit...

Re: Motor saga

Here's the update on my head repair. Only one guide broke during the bronze bushing upgrade. So with that one and the well worn guide only two had to be replaced. The valve seat pressure is now at 140lbs instead of the 75lbs that the flat tapped springs had that Comp cam had sent me. And a freash va...

Re: Motor saga

Thanks both of you for the input. It has been a tough decision. Ultimately it comes down to budget. I have put a lot of $$ in the motor as a whole these last few months with Accusump, roadrace pan, balancer, and a few other upgrades. On the fixed income play toy budget I having to look at the dollar...
