Good luck Gary, Lynchy, Rob and all.....

Won't be there this year to see Gaz crack the double ton (positive thinking mate! :!: ) :P

Rob has sent this clip from Youtube of the Shaguar doing its 177mph run this year.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgMIrM0EW08

I don't know who did the video but it sure looks and sounds good, even if I do say so myself. Own up and I will buy you a beer or three next time at the canteen!

Yeah, even though we got to take nana naps on the lounge in the bus on the way home, it stil took me over a week to get to the point where I wasn't constantly yawning in the afternoon. Now it's week 2 back from the lake and the stress levels are back to redline at work and I'm still trying to find time to review the week at the lake - maybe this afternoon?

Just doing some maintenance on the Jaguar, flushing the fuel system, cleaning out the tank, remove the injectors for cleaning and notice it only has 4pis on crank and 20psi when running. Mmmm....
Rob and pulled the rocker covers and found some really loose rockers arms. Mmmm...
Pulled the manifold and found a bent link on the roller lifter pair and metal filings in the lifter oil galley.
Soo... I suppose it is engine out for a clean out and rebuild.
Could be worse I suppose. Pictures to follow.
