Please don't tell Barry I figured something out.   I'll never get him to help me with the stupid act again!

I was going to ask if by some chance you had one of the factory restrictor plates they shipped on new cars in there. It was a long, long shot. :^)

Have fun, Jeff!

Re: Engine pics

Sorry for not responding sooner, but been getting the last camping trip in before I put the camper to sleep.
Thanks for the pics guys, these will help. I hope to have the car ready for the nationals, as it will be quite different than a normal paint job.
Spock, I went back through the 2013 shows, and there were very few, in engine compartment, close enough to see detail, pictures. There were alot of open hood pics, just not close enough for details.

Re: Dip stick pops out

Your engineer is aroused?  Piston ring blow by could be pressurizing the crankcase, check oil level and oil fill breather cap. If the dipstick is really loose, add a spring or dipstick tube grommet so you don't loose it.

When we rev the engineer to see where the oil leak is coming from, the dip stick is popping up and down!  Any ideas?
Thanks,
