A little bit (lot of) transmission problems and one blown head gasket but one easy 8.2s with only 26 psi of boost.

The moment, when you realize that something is wrong... Head gasket has failed and you have to pull to the side of the track. This happened at the burn out and luckily it was on the left side track and left bank gasket. Waters were easy to clean from the track...

In last race there was one 8.2s with lowish boost, mediocre 60 feet and slipping converter.
Now converter got higher stall speed and track is not cold anymore thanks to over four weeks of sunshine. Smile
Feels good...again.

I had a great weekend with the Y-Block guys in Ohio. Started with 16.4sec quarters. I tried manually shifting the AOD but that wasn't working well so I tried letting the transmission shift itself. First round I dialed in a 16 and ran a 14.9 at 92mph! Lucky for me the other car red lighted. Next pass was 15.11sec and I lifted in the traps thinking I was running too fast. The Hoosier Hurricane got me, barely. He ran a 12.83 on a 12.80 dial in. So I made him work for it!
Now the bad/good part. I had a over heating problem with my tow vehicle. Changed thermostat, then the radiator and fan clutch. Each change it would run cool for about 30 miles then HOT. Finally settled on a blown head gasket or cracked head. Either way I was done so I found a local car guy and left it with him to fix. Had no success in finding a car rental so I unloaded the 56 and drove it home. 800 miles with no problems and just under 18mpg! I couldn't be happier with the engine.

Looking for McCullouch VS57 brackets and parts. Also looking for 28 Chrysler series 72 parts. And early Hemi parts.

So Chuck, is that 14.9 @ 92 mph your best ever run? You're not in our drag times list, but you sure should be there...

It is my best ever run to date. I was actually in the 16's before. Not a Y-Block record by far but a personnel best.

Sounds like a road movie plot with happy ending. Smile
