betsy is back from the dead

well after a few weeknds of stuffing around with car it seems betsy is alive, although she was overful on tranny fluid and is currently leaking it thru breather, but thats a minor technicality it will only leak until its at right level, 1 roller is noisy and yes it was the one i adjusted all the ones brenden did are okay, so tomorrow i will get her into gear and see what she will do for me

Speed is just a question of money....How fast do you wanna go ???

I hear today the trans is not playing the game? I would have liked to get a little more advance in the timing but oh well. We don't have all day.

The more advance I gave it the healthier it sounded which pleased me. The timing was so far retarded it didn't know what it was doing. After trying to singe my hair and blow my head off, I decided more advance was the go. Probably pleased Brett more to see it happening like it should but I just like the sound of solid cammed engines.

Hopefully the trans is nothing terminal or silly. I hate traveling from Cranbourne to Werribee. I want to see it propel itself forward at a rapid rate of knots now!

Can't have all my mates Clevo's off the road inc mine having modifications done.

Re: betsy is back from the dead

i think the kindest thing the auto builder can do is give it a bullit in the head put it out of its misery
