the august run went well, execpt the river was very muddy.
considerable shower activity the first couple of days, but we can deal with that, and stayed dry.

suzi the psychic had been developing a smoking problem- after a long decelleration she would put out blue smoke on accelleration. vaccuum guage said valve guides were bad.
got a reconditioned head(trail tough).
suzi and i ran to ef carson (solo) to test her out.
ran fine with no smoke.
fine fishing, fine weather.
met some nice folk at the river and showed them how to get out thru nevada.
forgot my hat and camera.

suzi the psychic is getting an instrument upgrade.
i have a wide band air/fuel ratio guage setup for her.
wasn't happy w/the narrow band unit.
expect to have it funtional soon.......

122112- end of the 13th bactun
i have played with suzi and the afr guage.
i am pleased and will begin some carb adjustments.
i'll report soon on the 'gress(pro or con).

'gress010513- thinking next season
i have experimented with the idle circuits so far.
reducing the idle jet sizes has allowed mix screw to be closer to 2 turns out the setup rags speak of.
i am begining to see how this effects the main circuits.....

yes.





i had to look it up.
i was able to smog suzi with a weber carburetor this last time, but it wasn't a pretty affair.
i've been trying to make it right without the dynomometer.
i'm hoping to get better info w/this new guage/sensor setup.

poor suzi needed some more attention on her driver's side front. i had bent-up her stock tow loop(?), tweaking the end of the chassis rail.

i welded a bunch of small pieces to box in the chassis and have a tab to attach a clevis.
i still need to drill a hole in it.

i've had some time to experiment in adjusting her carburetor. i am pleased with the effects, but need to make more time before the season starts again.
probably some lower elevation stuff in march..... not sure where yet.

got the hole drilled. just as i envisioned.

decided to replace the myside rocker area.
[Linked Image]
i saved the bracket patterns from the other side. this one should come out better........

progrep021913
it did go better, and got pretty much done before the weather moved in. i need to clean up my b/s/welds a little bit and add some more rattlepaint.
[Linked Image]
i think i gained a little more room in the front well, so i expect less rub.

i decided to not irritate my wife w/the grinder noise. i put extra paint smoother on the welds.

Looks great! Was this easier than boat siding?

it could have been easier if i had a way of turning her upsidedown. that overhead welding while laying on the ground trying to see what i'm doing without cooking myself or doing major damage.........

the door still works, i may paint the other side to match.
i could use a hilift on both sides now(if i had one).
