The Trench to the Barn, Power to the shop, even water

Not sure how to make digging a trench and putting a water pipe and conduit (for power for the shop) into to it interesting.

This is the start of the conversion of the brown barn into my new SHOP!.
I have to start somewhere.

More videos to follow.

The Big Move to Macedon, the reason for my absence.

This is a little rough, it will give you an idea of why I have been absent.

We have moved from our home of 20 years to a new home with LOTS of projects to video tape.

Did anyone notice!  1,000 members.... I said if we got there I would do shirts.

I will start to investigate.......

Art suggestions are welcome.

Trash was probably in the tank. Seams like every time my tank dries out more chips show up.
If you haven't moved that shelf yet I have some foam that will help.

Shelf?
What you hit your head on at the end of the video.

Sold the house.

Dragster Update 09 06 2018

First off, Steve thanks for your help once again.

In this video, we install a converter to step down the voltage out of the 16 volt Turbo Start battery to 12 volts. This was done to run the filament bulbs on 12 volts so they would not be very bright and hot.

This allowed us to remove the small trailer break away battery we were using and install a fuel primer pump in that location.

We also started the engine for the first time after the latest rebuild. Set the timing on the mag and the crank pickup.

Once the engine was hot we were able to set the valve lash (this is an aluminum block and also has aluminum heads).

Another mystery was discovered, which we do not have a clear answer to. Your input on that mystery is welcome.

Glenn - very exciting.  After 21 years it's difficult to leave a home with memories and plus you have much invested, yet I'm very happy for you and your wife's new adventure.  The new workshop is huge, and may I add "doing a 60' burnout indoors is something you will remember forever" not that I'm suggesting it : )  Alan
