I changed my burnt out neutral light.  You've got way more initiative than I do on holidays ;)

    Thanks Scott  ;)...... But no, not initiative. There is just something wRoNG with me when it comes to this stuff.  :-\  ::)



 
Gorillas don't lay around like I do on the Holly-daze ...... they go out and geeter DUNN!  ;) I can GET fired up like GHG - but he's in the constant state of it!! Hahaha!


   See above  ;)........ Alright, let me go back out to the garage and see what else I can do..... while the wife ain't lookin'  :o

I managed to rustle up some initiative, but only enough to figure out how to deep fry turkey leftovers :)

  Mean while.. Back at it with the pipe tuning, finding the sweet spot. Trying to catch that laaaast nice blue pulse in the Meggy... resonance... scavenging and all.... You know.  And speaking of big lift , lumpy and aggressive Cams !  Well , maybe just a little ? ;)

Can you DO such things?? I thought only engineers and cam grinders and dynamicists could do stuff like that ........  ;) (about .120" or so .... that's what GHG tells me I did, anyway ....  ::) )

Yup...  Squintin' my one good eye , and  my fancy Mico- ometer.. That it is!  But I hear it's not all about hogging out the ports? And lift and all?  All though that's good stuff !  I hear  that the cumbustion chamber is important too? With all that swirl and stuff, directing it in the right places... Or sumthin'?

AWESOME GHG !

This is a good, basic tutorial ...........

SB:

From this basic tutorial link, it is clear that since you read and understand this kind of material of quadratic equations polynomials ... written by PHDs, you must have alphabets like FRCMDPHDBEMES... behind your name, you just won't admit ;).  Thanks for the link.

Quotes from the Tilden Technologies -

"Most automotive enthusiasts are easily exploited because they don't understand camshafts and cam design.  We have developed this website to share what we have learned.

Larry got his start with numerical methods back in the 1970's using the Orthogonal Collocation method.  When this method was picked up for simulating valve spring dynamics, he realized that some aspects of the method were never explained very well.  For this reason, he developed a hands-on tutorial on the method which includes downloads of code in Fortran 90, C++ and Excel.

Vita Larry Young

Larry received a B.S.Ch.E from Texas Tech in 1970.  An M.S.Ch.E in 1972 and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in 1974 both from U. of Washington.  He spent 1975 thru 1983 in the Research Department at Amoco Production Co. working in petroleum reservoir simulation and enhanced oil recovery.  In 1984 he founded Reservoir Simulation Research Corp. with a principal business of development and licensing of reservoir simulation software.  After selling the company in 1996 and a brief period with the successor company, he retired from full time work.

Hey GHG just wondering ... Why did you change your fuel pump ? Was it not moving enough?
