I found 3 chain sets in the box I got from Howard and 1 other new set besides. What do you want me to do bud? :oops:

Rick gave me a used chain. I will get that one to Howard. Can I take a rain check on maybe needing one of yours?

How’s the Valiant coming along.

Yes, you got dibs. I seriously doubt I will live long enough to need 4 spare roller chain sets. :shock:

Valiant is resting in the garage at home patiently awaiting rewiring. :oops:

That's an awful lot of vacuum hoses. Must be a late emissions setup....
:D

Yeah,... I wuz crawlin' around one of the local "Pick & Pull" salvage yards & came across this in some kinda ferrin' car. It looked close enough to me, so I cleaned it up & it's gonna make the Challenger go real fast. :wink:

Howard sent me this pic last night. Now that the block is decked to get the right 13:1 compression ratio the pistons are sticking up there pretty good.

On another note: Howard says his engine has “seen” 9000 RPM and would probably be okay there, but Jay typically shifts at 7000 RPM. They have a roller cam and all sorts of other trickery that works well for that stuff.

Every time we talk I lean a little closer to stepping things up just a tad... Maybe next year I’ll do some upgrades. Gotta get it running reliably first. I will likely go pick up the engine this week! :D

Howard has really gone over the top on this. The intent was for me to go up there and just have him show me some things... It has gone quite a bit beyond that!

I see a lot of wires and hoses and a really big hole. Throttle response should be.......sudden!
