Re: air fuel ratio gauge in circle track cockpit

Let the driver drive!

Use a Gopro camera or simalar aimed at the gage and review after the race/heat.

I tried to do about the same with a vacuume gage in a 2bbl car, asked him what's the vacuume just before corner entry/end of straight and off the end he went.

Re: Briggs Animal hone and piston to wall.

Thanks Bill, thats what I'm finding also. 1 stroke is 1 too many, where did that .001 go. I'm also finding over stroke is VERY important.

Re: Sbc valve spring pressure recommendation

Don't just ask about installed hight. Ask pressure also.

Tell them you need the pressures stated above minimum, if it takes a spring change to get there do it.

Re: Erson Cams Quality Discussion

Thanks - that's good info! Is it common to see 10 degrees total duration difference between 0.004" and 0.006" on a hydraulic? It seems like a lot. Grey, this was a average 6 or so cams measured by hand in my "test block" and put into CA , as you know it's hard to measure the sloooow lifter movement...

Re: Rocker arms question ?

On my rule limited dirt engines I have found a 3/8 pro stud w/nitro rocker holds up better than 7/16 set up with ball rockers.

Re: CamFlowRPM version 2.1 not computing

Evidently it is not Mac compatible. Bummer for me. JAVA does support Mac but I never compiled a Mac version. Now that the development environment is no longer supported there is no way for me to compile a new version. That happens sometime when you use a new/emerging language and development enviro...
