If the world seems immobile, Perhaps the version of your Player is stuck. Still life cannot bring change, but it can be  fun to ponder on! ;)

Does anyone know where to either get a new heater pipe for a 75-79 Ford 2.8L engine (the one that runs from behind the thermostat to the heater core) or know of a pipe bender that isnt a total thief or a hack? I contacted the place that did my last batch in stainless for $60 each  for a quantity of 3 and when I asked for 2 more, the price rose slightlyto $589.each! So either someone has discovered crystal meth over there or the price of 316L stainless has surpassed gold. Either way, the consecutive bend is what causes the issue and why most places cant/wont do it. My current options are to call my pipe guy in china that I work with but I would rather keep my money in the USA when I can. I can also make one out of ABS but that doesnt make me all warm and fuzzy inside. I really do not want a used one for very obvious reasons unless it is in great shape. I no longer run water in my coolant systems so corrosion is not a factor but I would really like to have a new one, just not for $589.

where cost is not a factor. When i started out in stock racing you could buy a car already built that could run .5 to .75 under the index for 7k to 10K. Now a good set of heads costs 7K, a transmission 5k, set of pistons and  ring packages can run 2k. convertor 1K. Gone are the days that using factory pistons or trw pistons.

There are a few classes usually the slower classes that can be built for about 10K or less.

David, what's a liquid money class?

When I ran my car, I'd make a few runs as fast as I could, then write a time on the windshield I was pretty sure I wouldn't outrun. After each run, I'd check which way my runs were heading and whether or not it was getting hotter or colder and adjust my time up or down accordingly. Not very scientific, but it sure was a lot of fun. That project Pinto's out there somewhere.

Your Project / Re: question about 2.3 blocks.
« Last post by Wittsend on January 20, 2018, 12:27:05 PM »
I'm no expert but I believe the blocks are all rather similar as it regards motor mounts, trans pattern etc.. The turbo blocks are the same with the exception for having an oil drainback hole tapped in. The area I would be looking to for a difference is the when they went away from a distributor to a different ignition triggering/remote coil method. Those block might not allow a distributor to be used.

Sorry I can't add more the only 2.3 I've dealt with is the one from my '88 Turbo Coupe. Hopefully others will chime in.

General Pinto Talk / Re: Ponies Dreamin' in the Barn
« Last post by pintosopher on January 20, 2018, 08:31:21 AM »
Temps are Dippin' , the riders are Trippin', tires will be slippin' as the winter cycles through the ranch and the valley
 In the Barn , the ponies are being groomed and prepped for the first signs of  spring. All things possible, but the reality of frost is ever present.
 An new stove arrives and now the Barn heats up with Pellets and a fresh layer of tiles to keep the Hooves off the slab.
 Another Service cart from a now defunct racing team rolls on the floor, moving to it's new home in the center of the barn. Loaded with Tools to keep the Hands busy in their maintenance of the Ponies, the gleam of new plating and Blued tempered steel has them mesmerized in awe.
 The Cook hits the triangle and calls the crew to breakfast, the smell of Waffles , fresh Bacon & Eggs and Coffee is intoxicating. Cool, dry weather, means a busy morning, as the next storm arrives on Sunday.
 USPS will be bring more parts and the future looks bright for the Shop Hare, a perpetual occupant in it's hutch in the back stall.
 All quiet, for a weekend .. The hands will feast and plan the week.. ;)

Youre welcome. Still in shock after I got the text from my coworker the other night.
