    At the shop...

    Stopped by Bill's shop this afternoon after work and met Mike and heard his Eliminator... Nice!!!

    Spoke to Mike for a bit and he tells me that Bill has taken care of this boat for him for quite some time and he is proud of this very nice Eliminator!

    Stopped at the powder coaters (Perfect - It Powder Coating) to pick up my parts today and visited Bill's shop.
    These aluminum rods are more polished than any other piece on my boat!!! And worth more I bet too!!!

    Re: At the shop...

    An interesting note about Aluminum Rods is, as the engine they are in revs higher, they actually stretch. This actually decreases deck height as they stretch and increase compression. This stretch is expected, and is one of many facets used in designing a very high performance engine! Nice stuff Bill!

    I forgot about that, I don't remember how much Bill said that they stretched, 50 thousandths maybe?

    They're gonna be flipping Jan's boat over tomorrow so the loader and shoe were installed. Makes it's easier than crawling under it later...


    What the loader looks like coming thru the intake without the bowl installed.

    I'm thinking your right on that point!!!
    It got flipped over this morning so that it can get the top side painted and start putting all the hardware in it...
