Spud Miller's Cave / Time for some changes
« on: December 01, 2018, 08:20:56 AM »
If I am going to make this change over to small percentage work I need to make some changes to my motor ! I am replacing my pistons so I might as well get the right parts ! I had 14.5 compression and my plan is to run about 30 percent so I am thinking about 12.5 ? I used .043 top and second rings with a total seal gapless top ring ! I also had gas ported pistons ! Bad idea ? Never had a bad plug reading but I did lift a ring land on one piston ! i put athicker head gasket on it and I think that may have led to the ring land lifting  my total deck was .072 ! I will go back to the .041 gasket !I am crossing the finish line at 9600 rpm so I think a gear change will help too ! Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks Bill

Spud Miller's Cave / Cranking compression and nitro
« on: May 29, 2018, 01:27:51 PM »
Speaking about cranking compression I am wondering what others have with injected nitro ? I retarded my cam and went from 225 to 190 and the next step is to tighten up on my lash but I don't know what is too high or low !

Spud Miller's Cave / A little nitro results
« on: September 26, 2017, 12:30:53 PM »
Went to Epping on Sunday to try again with the small 12 percent nitro mix ! I put my loose converter in and raised my shift to 9200 . First pass went a 7.16 at 185.79 fastest motor pass ever for the car ! Second run 7.15 at 185.77 ! For the first round we went up 1 percent more and went 7.11 at 186.02 ! Second round another 7.11 at 185.77 ! I am very pleased with the performance gain with the 13 percent mix ! A full 3 MPH and solid .1 over the M5 methanol and the M5 was a .1 better than M1 ! I must admit that I was afraid to try it but now that I did I am much more confident in doing so . The best advice I can offer at this time is to be very careful in the beginning ! We started small at 9 percent and 10 percent richer and only ran to the eighth . We pull the plugs all eight every run ! Take baby steps and if something seems wrong it most likely is ! Buy a hydrometer it is much easier to monitor your percentage !

Spud Miller's Cave / A little nitro advice ?
« on: September 07, 2017, 07:08:04 AM »
Ready to try a little nitro next weekend and I have a few questions . It is injected alky and runs very well as it is but I would like a little more . My compression is 14.5 but I run a large cam 280 on the intake and 294 on the exhaust with a lobe center of 114 . I have figured out the dynamic compression and it is 10.78 . Normally run 34 degrees timing and an 86 main jet . It normally crosses at 9400 so I changed the rear gear from 4.86 to a 4.56 . I would like to start at 15 pecent ! I launch off a 2 step is this ok ? I plan on going richer by 10 percent is this ok ? I bought a hydrometer kit so I can mix the fuel the correct way . Any thoughts or suggestions ! Thanks Bill

Dan Dishon's Transmission Den / Heli coils
« on: January 22, 2017, 07:18:48 AM »
Dan I have a couple of of Chrysler 727 cases with stripped threads for the pump . I plan on doing all of the pump bolts because they come apart quite often for gear changes . Do you think a fine thread or a coarse thread will give me better results with the aluminum case ? Also thinking about using studs instead of bolts . Thanks Bill !

Front Engine Dragsters / Tire growth
« on: June 04, 2016, 02:42:50 PM »
Any way to determine how much a tire grows at speed ? Thinking about the 2585 Good Year in particular . When I went from a 4.56 to a 4.86 my car picked up . It crosses at around 9400 right now so I am thinking what's a couple of hundred more rpm gonna hurt ! So I am thinking of putting a 5.0 gear in it . My car is around 100 more lbs than a B/ND would be .

Rear Engine Dragsters / Lets hear it for the little guys !
« on: November 09, 2015, 12:14:28 PM »
We all complain how the little guy is getting pushed out of racing with the mega buck teams in Comp Eliminator so I thought I should post this . Don Eckel senior and junior won the Comp title here in division 1 and I am very happy for them ! They are both hard working guys with no big money sponsors or big bank accounts . They run CD/A and have busted their butts to get this championship !
