Team 23 from N. Fla.

Doug, Big fan here of the 'Run what ya brung', David vs. Goliath school of racing, but if you need any help with anything, get in touch with these guys, there's some good dudes on that team and they'll help any way they can. Yeah they've got a nice rig and are well choreographed but they also have a lot of cumulative racing under their belts and understand and appreciate what it's like to be the underdog, they've all pretty much been there.

Norm's the rider, a great guy, Neil and Chris the two main mechanics, they can fix anything, and Jack's the owner (guy with the ZZ Top beard) and does the logistics. If you get time go over and talk to 'em, you won't be sorry.

From Bill Wood's Report for Day 4:


Quote:
At this point, the smallest Cannonball class is still led by Darryl Richman, who has completed a perfect 1,044 miles on his 1928 BMW. But everyone is wondering how these smaller machines will handle the challenges ahead, particularly the high passes in the Rocky Mountains.

For now, though, Richman holds onto the overall lead in the Cannonball standings, thanks to a scoring system that awards ties first to the rider in the lowest class, then to the rider on the oldest motorcycle and finally, if a tie still exists, to the oldest rider.

It just wont go away! So tonite, I drilled a drain/vent hole in the bottom of the damn thing.
We'll see how that works out tomorrow.
On some 70's Ford vehicles, they had a nipple installed into the side of the distributor. Off that nipple was a hose running to the aircleaner. On the top of the OEM caps was a capped vent (intake). This kept air moving through the distributor, anytime the engine was running. Might be an idea, for later.

has anyone suggested WD-40? am i dumb and don't know something about using it in a case like this? i used to use it on my 2.3 turbo mustang's distributor that would collect water like alll get out. it was the only way it would run in the rain.

I had a Saab where higher air pressure was lead from the windshield base to the dist. pushed the moisture out.
