I can't seem to find a chapter that covers how to let the spark plug porcelain out of your cylinders without it talking to your valve and valve seats. :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So it appears the best solution is to not run spark plugs, or use all 8-cylinders so everybody shares the load allowing the porcelain to stay where it belongs. :lol: :lol:

I don't know about Rapid, but I was reading the funny papers under those valve springs :twisted:

Looking great, guys! The trailer is awesome! That engine is as meticulous as anything I've ever seen. This thing is going to ROCK! Thanks for the pics & updates! WC1

It's been a while since our last update so here goes. Camera is dead so don't have pictures just yet. Generator is mounted and in it's spot, winch is mounted and powered, New winch device is fabricated,mounted and ready to go, all the carpenter work is finished, walls are back together. Getting the trailer ready to head to Des Moines on Saturday to meet up with the finished car? We're going there anyway. All that's left is change one tire, and a good cleaning inside and out.
