Someone had been there before as 2 or 3 of the screws had witness marks from being manhandled. I just dressed the edges with a small file and ran them on a wire wheel to blend them back in.

    Yeah my Q-Jets were not 40 years old. That does explain a lot. Looking good and I can not wait to see it all done!!

    Dropped the hardware through the blackening solution tonight and also epoxied the capped wells in the main body. Always a good idea on Q-jets to do this when you have them apart.

    Finally finished up the carb tonight. Had to order a new choke pull off for it after ours tested bad. I was very pleased to find that these can still be purchased through our local NAPA.

    That carb looks cleaner than it would've come brand new. Very nice. Post some vid of firing it up.

    Not sure when we are going up, but you are welcome to come along. The shop, BTR Performance, is simply amazing.

    Received an e-mail this morning from BTR Performance:

    It's running! Sounds great. Idles good. Carb ok so far. I didn't mess with it except for idle mixture screws. I'll make some pulls tomorrow. Very responsive.

    Received the dyno sheet in an e-mail today from BTR. 406 hp at 5,700 r.p.m. and 436 lb.ft. at 3,500 r.p.m. -- pretty sure those are the numbers, I didn't bring the sheet home with me from the office so I may be off a little bit. Weather permitting, we are going up on Saturay to make another pull and will then bring her home.

    Sounds quite healthy. I'm going to have to come visit you when you get it done.

    You want to join in on the fun still? Let me know. We plan on leaving at 8:00 so we can be at his shop around 10:00. Nate and Paul are going along so we may stop at the House of Guitars. Lunch will be on me.

    Sounds like a plan. I am not on call this weekend, pending things work out the way they should with the installs this week. If something changes between now and then I'll let you know, but I am buying my own lunch.
