When he got back it was making a ton of noise. As soon as he got out he said I forgot to tighten the rod bolts. lol Me and my other friend laughed so hard I almost had to sit down. They were all only hand tight and all he did was tighten them right on up. That old motor lasted him an entire season of hard racing and never had a bearing fail.
That's back when it was fun!! I miss those days a lot!!!!
Ohh man did I just get a visual...LMAO... When I was 16 I would find a set of 300hp double hump heads..have local NAPA store cut em down enough to clean them up. Bolt them on never checked head gasket thickness. ..what was piston to valve clearence ? I never made it to that chapter in Chiltons manual...I now know why sparks would come out of my left tail pipe. lol
