Well with the world shut down I took advantage and spent little extra money on the gal. Got her some new rods. Old ones only had 10 runs but they where in my TA/D combo and with 10500 rpm shifts ans 6500 leave plus good dose of 50 lbs boost. I figured better safe than sorry or thats the idea anyway. Getting some new lifters for her next,just another peace of mind thing.  At least if I break either I know its nott because I short cut something and used an over used part.

That shot is funny you posted as I am in Maine but have known the guy in the GS shirt since the 80's. He is in NC.
His name is Alan. Where/when is the picture from?

I found out how to totally fry the clutches out of it. You screw up on shift cable adjustment and attemp to leave at 5500 with it between  low and hi. When a screw up I do so at full speed. Got to loive this sport or just be nuts.
