Re: Opening Day at Norwalk



I do have an electrical fuel pressure gauge on the car.  It read 7psi in the pits, has read 7# on the strip in the past when I've had this power problem but I did not read it on the run yesterday. Therefor, can"t rule it out completely but highly unlikely that is the problem. Also, no sputtering or backfiring.

Thoughts from others is the springs are weak. They've been on the car for 7 years, under pressure all that time but only have about 160 runs.  I'll be pressure testing them on the car next weekend,  Friend is lending me a Moroso spring checker.

Don, have you ruled out fuel starvation?  I don't remember details about your fuel system.  Just a thought.  I have a remote Auto Meter electrical fuel pressure gauge you can setup inside the car if you want to go down that route.  Let me know.

Same results. Won't pull past 5200 RPM.  Ignition is all new.  Only thing I noted after the run was the timing after the run was at 40 deg advanced. Guess I did not reset it after I put on the MSD 6AL. 

Didn't make another run for various reasons.

Carb is about all I have left to pick on.  Plugs were right on or maybe a bit on the lean side if anything..Calling Compuflow in Medina this week for guidance.

Any ideas?

Leaving shortly for the first day of racing at Norwalk (Summit Raceway Park).  Test-n-Tune day.  They expect 600 cars.

With the new MSD ignition, expect to hit my goal of a sub-12 second run today.  Weather will be near or below 70 so the air will be good.
