    Well was planning on doing some funday sunday racing but thats not going to happen. I rebuilt my engine a few months back and took it to test everthing and make a few passes and on the 3rd pass turned on the fogger with 150 hit and hit it about 400ft out, it was on a good pass then at 800ft blew a dam hole in #8 and geuss it broke the piston and parts of that one went across and put holes on the other side. I got the car back to shop took a bore scoope and found a hole in #8 and said the hell with it for now. I havnt had time to pull it out as i have been moving my shop and getting everthing back in order, never know how much stuff you have till you move, 12 years in the same place. I had a friend help me put the engine back in the car after i rebuilt it and was down to putting a small tuneup in fogger and handed him the jets and some how when i went to hook up the lines i must have kick out the nos side on #8. When i pulled off the lines thier was no jet and have still not found it. I am amazed when i tested the fogger that there was no frost on the line or the nozzle. Thats what i am going to be doing, putting some new pistons in and hope thats all thats wrong.

    Dave, also wanted to thank you for the help and info on the lifters. I sent them out to isky to find out that they were crowers and isky was so kind to send them to crower at no charge. They rebuilt the lifters for 250.00 witch was a lot cheaper than the cost of a new set. ($1000.00)

    No more drag car but I am gonna beef up my 79 Z28 with solid subframe bushings, weld-on subframe connectors, G-Braces for the front cradle, 1" drop composite rear leaf springs and 2" drop Hotchkis front coils. Not only will she be quick in a straight line, she's gonna carve a few corners as well!

    Only a rich man can afford to use cheap parts.
