  • Spent the last two days working on Travis’ new race car’s engine. He had a intake manfold leak, getting water into #7 cylinder.

I learned a lot by helping to troubleshoot the problem. Travis purchased a tool that put pressure on the water system to allow isolating the source of the leak. It was coming from a broked manifold gasket between the back head water passage and #7 intake.

We replaced the intake gasket and started the engine. He is taking the car to the track tonight for testing.

After working all that time, I decided not to go to the track before the Test and Tune on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009 @ SCR, gates open at 10:00 am. I need the seat time before I get into competition. Old folks only have so much energy…
