Talking gearjammers

Had to miss this race, my junk has a broke trans. My buddy made it down three cars. It is good to say that they all are my buddy's. And your right about pulling gears, it is the best way to race. Steve

Smile stick shifting

I wish they had a race like that out here. I run a toploader and wouldn't do it any other way. I love shifting, the car idles better with a manual, I can change my own clutch at a reasonable price, and I can down shift to slow down too. I just love rowing a shifter!!

Steve do you race a t-bird? If so i saw you run at union county. I was talking to David with the 347 mustang.
David did good , he made an adjustment on the 3-4 shift and it helped put.
I asked about you and he told me about the carnige.

Youll get back out there soon...........

Yea friendly bunch of guys. brought my buddy that has a stick street chevyll and a tubbed nova with a 598/glide. we talked with the guy with the white/gold chevyll and its got my buddy really thinking about adding the saftey stuff to his streetcar and racing with yall.
I'm not to far away, but it will probably be next year.

Anyway good luck...........ron

Yes that was my T-bird. I maid two rounds, put the #2 man in points out in the first round. That was really good because of all the smack talk from him over the winter. And in the second round I put my buddy David out. Cut a bad light and went out in the third round, but ran 6.25 on a 6.26. It ran 111mph on all the runs but the two I had to dump out of. Well I took the plunge and ordered a Liberty Equalizer, spoke with Tenon today and should be shipped this Friday or Monday. My old Jerico needs a case, main shaft, ALL gears. It had nine runs on it sense the last rebuild. Steve

Angry classic gear jammers

Well what a great day for me. Got drive shaft in fired it up, went up the gears all 5!!!. Motor did not seam right, blowing smoke out the breathers. Just did not fill right, it is seizing up. Pulled plugs, found nothing,ck for water in pan, nothing. At last run at Farmington when trans blew up on the 3rd gear shift, went to 1st, trans broke and engine saw a lot RPMs. Ran at track to ck for skip, oil psi, running hot ect. Did the same at home, did not think the engine had any problems. Think pistons bumped the heads and jammed the rings. Pull it out and find out what's going on. Wow got to love this racing stuff. Steve

nitrous ford, it may be easier to change the input shaft to a ford or to a 18 spline Chrysler input. The 18 spline is the most common and is stronger than the Ford input. Do you have a clutch yet? As for the bearing retainer it needs to be the ford size for the bell, if it's to big take it off and take it and the bell to a machine shop and turn it down to fit. Or you may need to get a new bearing retainer. If you go with a new input, I think the 6305 pilot bearing is what you need. Give me a PM with your # and I'll give you a call. Steve

I know it`s not real close, but Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn Oregon is holding 4 "super shifter" class races for 2011. I run with the BC SuperShifters up here in BC Canada, but if my work & racing schedules allows, I`d like to make at least one of the Woodburn races this year.
