Pistonhead Open #3

Thursday I was finalizing the new Tin Covers for the front head, that took me 7 hours and I was wasted. Friday I took of to Cala´s High Performance and pulled the head of, as it required some soldering of the evacuation tube on the exahust tin, and that took some time and effort as well, and I somewhat rushed the assembly, and made it thru the gates of Kjula Dragway before 23.00. and then wrenched to 2 o clock in the morning to get the head torqued and everything checked. Saturday morning warm up and I had major leak on the intake Tin base, so...first qualification round was a no go and the head removed again, new viton gasket installed and then everything sealed up and back again, and out for the 2nd round and made a 10, 30x, enough for third spot. And I did not improve except for top speed close to 214 km/h on a 10.40 run. Really poor 60 foot and the picture is proof, as I missed the call for line up and almost came directly from the pit area in to the water with pulse.No time for mind and clutch control. Anyway worked it on Sunday to Semi and lost to a impressive naturally aspirated V-rod running consistent 9,75, 9.80´s, we had great fun...and, no leaks, none.

2013 Season is ON!

Kjula Raceway, Eskilstuna Sweden, "Pistonhead Open #1", testing on a good track with the best track preparation crew who torched and shaved rubber thru the night to improve launch conditions. On my 2nd run a Cessna Pilot decided to pass overhead during the race and land in the left lane..@ the 1/8 mark...So I clicked of and my left lane buddy veered over to my side.. it was interesting...

In case you wonder

If you are curious about the origin of the drive gears used for the F/P drive, those are part of a Morris Magneto H5.
They where kind and did let me buy part of a H5, so they deserve cred, parts are excellent, did some machining to shave of a few grams on the cluster gear, and yeah,..., it is hardened to spec.
You will find Morris products right here, Morris Magnetos

Mechanical Fuel Pump Drive

Done, pretty much, some holes and pin bolts remains, but the hard part came out nicely.
The tolerance on the axial location of the drive gear is very small, has to be spot on.
Much easier when I made a drawing and then machined the bearing housing and shaft.








The Pump is Hilborn, billet and small

 The drive gear has to be spot on axially
