Re: [DML] Bernie's Ticking


After haveing lot's of people look and hear, the noise from the 
engine, I have determined two things:

1.  I know I am horrible using feeler guages, never could get the 
feel for them.  Trust me on this one, I could never get a set of 
points set right in a distributor, ever, and I have been working on 
old cars since 1978.  Someone else would always have to do it for me.

2.  BB begs for upgrades, so with that said, she is going to Houston 
for the Stage II engine upgrade, which will replace the cams and 
valves anyway.  

And I get the performance exhaust, Nology ignition system, all for 
the very low price of, way too much.  But what the heck, it's only 
money, and if they had a stage 3 engine, I would probably go for 

Now I have another problem, which car do I bring to Pheasent Run?  
Crash and Burn, or Black Beauty?  I know I will be able to find BB 
in the parking lot a whole lot easier than C&B.  I can't drive both 
at the same time, and a D can't tow anything.
